    Its worth having a small blaster to simply blast and repaint anything that is removed, clean / tidy no active rust and looks nice

    The cleaning continues.
    But I am very happy with how solid this car is!!
    Lil scrubbing and paint is all I need on the bottom of this car.
    Could have done a lil more scraping of the undercoating, but it's a driver, and car cruise season is right around the corner!!

    Found some lens cheaper than anywhere else.
    The Parts Place Inc
    $239 for the pair. And they are OER!
    Makes a world of difference. KIMG2236.JPG KIMG2237.JPG KIMG2239.JPG KIMG2241.JPG KIMG2242.JPG KIMG2243.JPG KIMG2245.JPG KIMG2244.JPG KIMG2247.JPG KIMG2252.JPG

    They turned out really nice
    No body gaskets yet.
    Weather strip and those will all go in when prime/paint happens KIMG2263.JPG KIMG2269.JPG KIMG2301.JPG

    VERY solid car. the underneath of the car has been a breeze. lil brass wire wheel and that's it.
    I am going to do the rear end with a cheap makeshift blaster and some walnut shell just to get it as clean as I can.
    so far so good....other that some pretty rough rocker panels (dented, not rusted), I am very pleased with the car overall.

    Ok....so the major part of this segment is done!! Rear back in the car. Torquing, brakes lines and hardware, parking brake cables all have to be done. Looking like new under there!!
    Looks like it may have sovled my shift to the right issue as well.

    It is looking very nice! It does look very solid and nice under there. You can't beat that! I've been doing the same stuff to my 71. Just trying to get it back on the road after being a barn/yard ornament for the last 30 years.
