    i counted the spot welds ,just in removing the cowl it was somthing like 180
    spot welds that i had to drill .i think thats why my shoulder pops and cracks the way it does,an ice pack helps a little, its not to good on the hands either .i know the pain

    looks like you got off lucky , the last couple i did the spot welds were stacked 2 -3 times overlaped making one long weld,they must have been bored or just playing around with the welder

    I sanded the front valance, headlight buckets, and end caps down to bare metal than epoxy primed.

    285.jpg

    288.jpg

    I block sanded than did a little bodywork.

    289.jpg

    290.jpg

    Next another coat of SPI epoxy to seal everything

    291.jpg

    293.jpg

    I sprayed a couple of coats of Slick Sand

    Brian may not be happy, but I'm always impressed with his skills.

    At one time somebody had drilled extra holes in the dash for a radio. We had an old dash that was replaced on another car so Brian cut it out and installed in this car.

    Wow, obviously Brian being happy or not has no effect on the quality of his work, that is just amazing work.
