    77RS' Rally Sport Project

    I started the resto on this car 3 yrs ago, but haven't made a ton of progress yet. Selling my mom's house (and moving her twice), my sis passing away, and me having a heart attack last year slowed things down a little :confused:
    I pulled her back out of the shadows this week, and I'm ready to get started again! I'll start at the beginning and I'll post more progress pics over the next few days.

    DAY 1 Just dropped the car off of the trailer and pulling her around to the back of the shop with the my father-in-law manning the John Deere

    what a mess!

    Doors, sub frame, all glass and interior removed

    Stripped and loaded on the trailer. Going to clean the undercarriage

    Nice and clean in this pic, but future pics will show that I changed to chassis black and undercoating.

    Thanks Pat. These are pics that I've taken over the last couple years. I didn't get it all done this week. Timewise, you're probably ahead of me ;)

    thanks Guy. I've got a long way to go on this one. Your work has inspired me though!

    Thanks Harry. It would have been hard to go backwards on this one lol
    I'll post more pics tonight
