    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.

    It is sad what we have to do to make these new parts fit ,wasn't always that way .I remember being able to buy a new fender ,paint it and bolt it on. Not any more :nonono: It's looking good Rusty.
