Horse Sense - 66 Coupe to Fastback Conversion


i did a light sand blast this morning,just to find the spot welds and finished trimming out the leftover scraps of metal. i will finish blasting tomorrow and grind the lumps left over from the spot welds then maybe primer. looks like it will clean up realy well. the floor supports were a night mare to get off .they were spot welded about every inch all the way around and dime size spot welds. this is about as far as i have ever taken one down, i can pick it up it is so light. it is extra flimsy right now, i wouldn't dare step on the rockers. after i blast it it will be time to block it up and level it.i will be using my laser level again. it is pretty slick it is self leveling and levels vertical and horizontal at the same time and you don't have to worry about bumping it and throwing it out of level it will re sets its self:nice:

i trimmed off the other quarter panel today and the other pieces that were left on the inner wheel tubs. i think i am going to sand blast the whole inside of the car this time before replacing any panels .it will be easier to do with the roof off . i have a set of original doors on the way . i will fit them to the door jambs before trimming of the last pieces of the quarters. i still have a little bit of trimming to do at the top of the windshield frame.



i started cutting my coupe apart. my friend hasn't brought his by yet.
i cut out the back window area ,the tail panel and trunk brace , and the driver quarter ,just to hottttt! it actualy rained this morning .just enough to make it steamy :drool: . i left the inner quarter brace to the wheel tub just to keep the door jamb in line because i have the doors off. i will need the doors to fit up to the small piece of the quarter that is left on the door jamb before i finnish trimming all the little pieces of sheet metal that are left over .
