i got it on the rotisserie this morning .took the rear end out all by my self ,that sucker is heavy! the leaf spring bolts are stuck in the leafs of course
so that will be my next project. i have to pull the trunk lid and the doors back off so i can flip it over .i have a small amount of welding under side to do and a bit of fixing around the radio opening and it will be ready to sand blast and prime.

my parts finally came in . the doors are very nice ,about the straightest i have seen. however the grain is not correct . it is much heavier than the original ,more like a crinkle finish. the fit is wonderful though...
got bored and decided to build the roll bar .made the hoop first ,then the cross bar and the down bars. i fish mouthed the ends so they would fit up tight to the hoop. just about broke my wrist with the notching tool when the saw hooked up and the half inch drill spun me around. broke all the teeth off...120mm likes this.
i made the last two brackets to mount the interior fiberglass. i also attached the roof brace to the door post . i bolted the rear valance on to see how it would fit ,drivers side is just about perfect but the pass side needs to be extended about 1/8 inch to get a tight fit . and because sooomebody didn't like my yellow trunk lid i sanded it off
the red car went home today so i started on mine again. i made the brackets that mount the rear seat bottom to the floor,4 in all and welded them in place .i will not be using the back seat but i figured why not?
i pulled out my other rotisserie...
