Well you can't say you don't know what you're getting into. Looks solid, happy restoring.
If you run into any problems… Just blame the previous owner!
Good luck with the restoration process!
lmao damn.. just blame it on the previous knucklehead from now on... Sure does look solid. \m/
Good luck,,, great winter project,,,I did mine last winter after owning it since new.
Thanks for the good wishes. The car was a daily driver for ten years, but has been in semi-retirement since then. But always garaged, and that (as we all know) makes a big difference. Only rust is in the lower front fenders. I have NOS GM front fenders bought years ago, but they differ somewhat from the originals. May just patch the original fenders to maintain the originality. Here's what it looked like when I started taking it apart.
Looks good there, I'm a fan of using the original sheet metal when you can. Always seems to fit the best.
As expected, only rust was in lower front fenders and one small spot on a rear quarter wheel well opening.
Wow 50 years... Thats great !
I bet there has to be some old photos kicking around with a big grinning young guy with a whole lot of hair etc .
How but posting up a few early photos from back in the day for us ?
You know... those ones we all have with the Air-shocks and the 50 series tires! LOL
Your pics look TOO familiar, like when I sanded mine thru 3 coats of paint to bare metal. Isn't sanding fun? LOL!
