The Body

Here are some shots of the car during restoration.  You can see it had a little cancer on the lower quarters.  I had to replace the battery box and passenger side of the fire wall.  I also put new wood in for the front and rear door posts.  It was a pretty easy job if you have a band saw that will cut 6" on the vertical axis.  It's a little further along now but I have to get some recent photos of it so keep checking back.  I will be adding many  photos of the process from start to finish in the next few weeks so if you're interested keep checking back.   Last updated 12/10/06.
