Mouse nest and starting the floors. Got 1/7 of the floors painted with epoxy primer. Laquer thinner and a wire brush on a drill gets the undercoating off well. You have to let the brush soak on laquer after though to get the undercoat get off the brush

I'm just slightly jealous of it having T-tops...... ;)
Looks like a damn good looking car to start with!

As recently as a year or two ago you could still get windshields installed through commercial companies like Safelite. Don't know if that's still the case.

There look like there are a ton of them available on car-part.com (the junkyard inventory website). Half a dozen near me for <$100.
