Well, I have the car down at the work shop now and will blast it again today. So this weekend I will fix the cowl vent areas and maybe get the replacement cowl in and possibly the dash as well. After that I am moving on to the lower front rocker pieces.
I figured I would work my way from the front to the back. Anyway it is what it is and that is all that it is??

OK so here is where we are at now. Cut out the old cowl and put in the new one, replaced the upper cowl piece, and got the new dash in as well. I should get my sub-frame connectors in today so those can go in next week, and I will start on the floors. Talked with my buddy that sprays metal and we will do all of the floors top and bottom when the new panels are in. So enjoy the pics and let me know what you think.
I got in a hurry and forgot to take A picture of the lower cowl installed! OOps, trust me it looks just like the upper does. Steve...

I hope you filled in the swiss cheese in that cowl before fitting the top.

I wish I wouldn't have brain farted, I replace that whole lower cowl piece with a good one. The one in the pic is the one I replaced.. The replacement piece had no holes or rust on it and I powder coated it before I welded it in place. The upper is powder coated as well as the dash. That is that new primer powder I was talking about before. I think a little more clean up on the welds and it is off to work on the rockers and sub-frame connectors. After that the front floors go back in. It is nice to be putting some part back on the car for a change.

Monday update

Got to work on the sedan this Sunday for a few hours, so here is what got done.
Sub-Frame connectors are in. Nice units.
Cut out passenger front rocker and replaced with good metal. Took a lot of fitment time but came out pretty good. I put the door in place with bungee cords just to see how it looked. Now I need to do the same on the driver side and it will be off to the floor pans. Speaking of floor pans, I spoke with my metal spraying buddy and he said we will spray the whole floor top and bottom when I am ready. He said we will use a zinc- alluminum mix and it will fill all the small holes and rust proof the cars floors. I will take lots of pictures of that.
Anyway enjoy the new pics and as always comments good or bad are always welcome. Later Steve.

Thanks. I just don't know if it is no fear, or too dumb to know any better. But like they say, you don't know until you try. Besides Roger said he would come and fix anything I mess up.

Did I say that? I must have been hallucinating.

Steve, just let me know when to come. I'm good at applying Bondo. Or I could just bring my texture hopper and then paint it with latex paint. That's what you do, isn't it?

Actually I think it's more a case of ignorance is bliss. I would be afraid. Very afraid.

I usually just find a big shovel and a large trowel and go for it.
Problem is finding a large enough bucket "O" bondo to last.

Finally got to work on the delivery this weekend. Did not get a lot done but it was a time consuming job. I finally got the drivers floor pan in, it took a lot of fitment but I think it went in well. Next week, the passenger side.

Inch by inch... but it's looking pretty good there Steve. Are you going to put a floor hump in for a 4-speed? You may have said already...

Looks good!

Nice work Steve. You are coming along nicely.
I think Roger should show us his painting talents at the next tech day.
