Just got back from my trip to Arizona. We enjoyed some spring training baseball, nice weather and picked up the windshield I bought about a month ago. I also purchased a stock rear view mirror from the same seller and picked that up while I was there. Here are a few pics since my last update.
I removed the tray under the dash, and the heater vent. The only thing left in the interior is the accelerator pedal. Its soaking in PB blaster some more so I can get it loose. The particle board on the tray is in bad shape.
I spent a lot of time on the roof. It had multiple creased dents like this one. I got them worked out and thought it looked pretty close to straight, until I sprayed a guide coat. I still have a lot of work to do.
I had a really cheap hammer and dolly set from an auto parts store. I decided with all of the hammer and dolly work ahead of me, I would get some nicer tools. I ordered a new Martin hammer. After feeling the difference I didn't want to use my old body hammers any more. I have been ordering vintage Fairmount tools to save a little money. After cleaning up the faces, and installing new Martin handles on the hammer heads they are pretty nice. I am not getting them perfect like some guys that restore old tools, just trying to make them usable again. The dollies weigh almost twice as much as the cheap ones I had, and the hammers feel great. It really makes bumping metal a lot easier.
