Slow but Sure

Alright, so the body restoration process has become long, slow and boring. Hence the lack of meaningful posts. Currently the undercarriage has been completely stripped of undercoating and original paint. The engine compartment and interior have a bit of grinding left to be done, and I decided to take all of the door jambs and visible interior surfaces to bare metal. The next step will involve caulking all open body seams. Once that's done, I'll finally be ready for primer and paint. Then, the rotisserie can be disassembled and the body can be trailered to Salem to be undercoated. Once back from Line-X, I will begin the process of bending fuel and brake lines from new tubing, and sand blasting and painting all of the undercarriage parts before reassembly.

Glad to hear that "life" hasn't stopped work on her. Looking forward to seeing new pictures.

Any thoughts on making her run on electricity only. I mean, you are an electrician. It only makes sense! :)
