Hi TomNot much...has been a real busy spring and summer so it has been shelved for a bit but plan on getting back to it tonight actually! I've been accumulating parts throughout the summer for the project and hopefully through this fall and winter I hope to get it back on track!It's always been a challenge keeping projects like this on the rails! Thanks for the inquiry! Mike

Ha! Everybody on this website knows about that! Can't quit your day job.Things are looking good though. I need to change the brake lines on mine, and if I take that on, may go ahead and do the wiring harness too...which is why your work is particularly interesting to me.

Hi TomYes...I am looking forward to getting the bottom scraped, sealed and painted so I can start running brake lines, fuel line, wiring harness, etc., that will be a happy day! Some time away before that but not that far away! Mike

Great journal, I enjoy following your progress. Still amazed you haven't needed to replace any sheet metal, I'll bet you are loving that!

Yep...so far so good! Car is in way better shape then my 72 Beach was for sure..At some point I think the car went off road as there was some collision damage repaired - passenger side rear quarter looks to have been replaced and several good dings in the bottom...but nothing I cannot live With! Thank you for following...and have a good one!

The existing undercoating seems to scrape off pretty easy, once all gone will wash and clean bottom and coat with an etch primer followed by truck bed liner and then 2 coats of body colour (I think...)
