    Brian has been working on the undercarriage and finished the torque boxes he made. Before he welded the outer panel he brushed epoxy inside

    This was the first time we had it on the rotisserie and Brian cleaned up the bottom and welded some of the seams.

    The frame had some dents so Brian cut them out and replaced the metal.

    This is incredible work you two! I was digging to find advice on rust repair and got sucked into this thread...I'm scared to find out what kind of rust damage my 68 has but I'm a bit excited to get this close to my car! Should be a fun and long adventure. Thanks for the incredible pictures and log of the work done. I hope things are still going together smoothly.

    After Brian modified the doors for a good gap I epoxy primed followed with a little bodywork

    DSCN9320_zpsdd5303b5.jpg

    I sprayed one coat of SPI epoxy

    DSCN9325_zps7617b6e2.jpg

    A couple of hours later I sprayed two coats of Slick Sand polyester primer

    DSCN9333_zps6af50c51.jpg

    We were not happy withe the quarter panels so I did a little more bodywork and block sanding

    DSCN9316_zps356428bf.jpg

    One coat of SPI epoxy

    DSCN9322_zps3e6d1e61.jpg
