Project #Super71 - We Have Lift Off!

I had some dedicated time in the garage, and everything was prepared for lift off, but I have to admit... the car was was patched together way more than I remember back in 1996. It Must have worked however because the car is still with us today!

I had to remove all kinds of sheetmetal patches that were holding the body to the pan with sheetmetal screws, rivets, filler, and undercoating. As I removed all the old body work I found all the old body filler from the previous owner.


Anyway... long story short... the car is now in two seperate pieces. I can now move forward with chasing the rust out and fixing it all properly this time around. No worries.

My next job will be to add my re-enforcements to the body to keep teh car from folding in half while I hack out the remains of the heater channels.

Here are a few pictures from my day in the garage.
