Bad fuckin ass.


Thanks! Now that all the "not so fun" stuff is done I'm kicking ass. It's super motivating to actually make it pretty and know it will be on the road soon!

Yeah I had to shrink the panel a lot and it sank in slightly. I never claimed to be a metal worker or a body man.. just gonna do the best I can 😉

I wish. I would love to have all the proper tools and technique to work metal. I cut metal, not shape it 🤣😂

My goal was get the inside of the panels sealed up and ready to mount. I got it done..

First I rolled her outside to intimidate the neighbors.

Then it was time to finish stripping metal... No more paint stripper for me???

All primed.

Trunk lid has too much rust in the rear seam. I'm hoping I can score one at Canby. Maybe James can bring one from Datsunville... It will work for now but I need a new one before final paint.

I'm hoping to have windows in and the car driving by mid next month. I think that will allow time for a bunch of good shake down runs before Canby. I don't want to get towed home...
