Drivers door is junk, front drivers fender is junk, obviously drivers rear quarter is junk. Not sure exactly what happened. The quarter was replaced at some point, then destroyed again.

Good progress made this weekend. Even though it is 107 with the heat index right now!!! Body is in primer, along with inner wheel house and rear end. Have for sanding to do on all the other pieces but progress nonetheless.

Looks like I need the following, this list keeps growing...

Drivers front fender
Drivers door
Drivers rear quarter
Roof skin
Tail panel
Inner rear wheel house
Trunk drop off extension.

Also need to pick up the subframe connectors and either drop spindles or drop springs. Not sure which direction yet on that.

These cars look like they were in a pinball machine. I don't trust repainted cars without documentation of the repairs done! Mine wasn't that bad but it had some pooty work done to it. You'll get it fixed up.

Makes you wonder some times what some of these cars have been thru - least you know where the car is at and can start moving forward.

That is true, all new sheet metal has been ordered. Besides door and front fender. Should be here in a couple weeks. Worked on rebuilding the rear end today. About half done. Need to run to the parts store and get a bearing race installation kit. Was able to get old bearings and such out using some rigged up pullers and such. Hopefully get that buttoned up today, then work on getting the front subframe redressed and installed. Have this thing rolling within the next 2 weeks would be nice.

Happy 4th of July to everyone!
