Still cutting away. Parts from Restoration Design on the way. Time to break out
the kerosene heater soon. Hitting 38*F tonite.
Drilling out spotwelds is certainly a test of wills. Progress is
slow but it's progress.


Good skills on the bodywork,clever to see you covered the dash....amazing how those little chips of steel go so far and stick/burn to stuff.
Keep up the good work.

You're probably OK, but you may want to double check that rear jack point piece to be sure the donut is welded on in the correct orientation. I just got around to fitting mine, only to find out it was put on backwards. It causes the jacking surface of the donut to be "way not parallel" to the ground.
It was a known error but a few parts did get out there.

Thanks Dean, the whole dash is out. Have a nice NOS to put in there.
I'll be covering more of it with thicker plastic when it's time for paint.
Cutting around the door brace on the jamb side till I can weld a triangular
plate near the floor and long and firewall then I'll remove the jamb.
Goal for tomorrow is removing all of rear left quarter panel. "Tyga" I'll check the donut thanks.

Ok finally removed rear quarter. It's really amazing what you can find hidden
underneath nice paint. A complete chunk missing beneath the left rear light housing.
Popped right out when I flexed the panel while removing. Next up left inner lower firewall. Oh and my "fresh air" elbow was half bondo!?! So this car had issues
back before 1986. I purchased it March 1986. I never would have known till I took on the task of
putting the six in.

I love pics like the one above! It's like the 6 is patiently waiting, hiding under the bench. Here it's peeking out and saying "Hey car, I see you! We are gonna have some kinda fun!!"

Keep up the great work!

So with the rear panel off was better able to access the work at hand.
Cleaned up a lot of undercoating.
Found a decent sized hole on the left susp. console.
So I'll be ordering a bit more steel. I want to next remove
the lower inner firewall , to clean up and cut out around and including
the seatbelt anchor.

Dion - I have a '72 donor car that is virtually rust free. I've been slicing off the handful of pieces that I'll need but feel free to contact me if you need any sheet metal parts that you can't find. It's got solid consoles on both sides.
I'd love to see it help a fellow Build-Off Challenger!
Keep up the great work!

Cut away the remainder of the sill panel.
Surface rust on the extra panel in front of heater tube.
No issues there. Will make patch panel for lead edge of the long that you
see just inside the wheel well.

Removed more of the door jamb except for brace area.
Cut open seatbelt anchor region to take care of that and prepare for
placing in new steel.
I removed the left half of inner firewall just before
tunnel overlap. The tunnel is sound from what I can tell on probing and
scraping. Test fit the new panel of firewall. Should be real nice when complete.
The bronze brazing mixture on those E brake tubes are a bugger. Did my best
not to destroy them.
I'm at the point now that I'll be sandblasting all these
areas. I'm awaiting a call from Lowes for my new
compressor (Christmas gift). Then that will be the next
coming weeks chore.

I'm amazed at the level and extent of (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sawzall-smiley.gif) surgery you're taking on! Impressive.

I always thought R&R was short for "Rest and Relaxation", but your work has me thinking it's really "Remove and Repair"!

Keep up the great work.

Chris

ps. I should be able to get you that suspension console by around year end. Let me know if there are any other pieces you need.

Thanks for that Chris. I'm the one that gets slack jawed seeing the other builds.
The tube frames & carbon fiber stuff. Just incredible.
Hats off to all you guys.
Cheers all, Dion
