So I just realized that I'm about 2mos into my restoration, and don't really have a thread for the progress. I have my Floor Pan thread, but I'm done with that (for now) and need a place to put the REST of the work I'm doing.

I made up a bunch of posts, and will put them here, in this thread. I'll then keep going as I progress. Some of these pics are dupes that you have seen before in other threads, others are new.

Here's the starting point, on Jan 12th, 2004.

I never liked a brown interior with a Yellow car. Let's pull it and see what we can come up with.

Found some rust behind the back-pad. Let's go poking and see what we can come up with!

So, we cut out the bad stuff, and replaced it with New stuff!

Some quick work with a welder, and we're back to a solid chassis!

Button the quarter back up, and on to the next chore.
(I DID go back later and make the welds all purdy.)

Here's where a decision was made...Should I take the floors out, or just repair the damage?

Welding the replacements in was pretty mich a snap if you take the old ones out right.

Underneath, you'll want to stitch the whole thing.

Here's when Engman's kit comes in handy. It's pretty much perfect.

This is a LOT more work than it looks. That is a LOT of holes!
