I will post again on monday as I should be working on it Saturday. I would have put more days in this week but the negative temps are not worth trying to heat up.

Amen to that. I need to do some tinkering on my beater to find the source of my problems, but I can't go more than like 10 minutes without having numb fingers. Grr winter is a cruel mistress.

Some Progress:
Engine Removed!

I had some Suspicions about the brake lines before this build which now know for sure I will be replacing. As you can see from the picture many in the engine bay are corroding through.

Yes everything is being repainted, and anything that is worn beyond my standard is being replaced.

Started Mocking up the front bumper:





I found there wasn't enough room on the stock endplates so I will be making some new ones.

Should have a majority of the surface rust on the body taken care off after the next time I am in the shop "Tues". Then I can move on to removing the rear windows and cutting out the rear quarters.
