Day 276 - Some catching up to do...

OK so I'm really going to do it this time, I'm going to play catch up. I'm exactly 6 months behind on this blog. So here's what happened while we were gone...

1. The car has been completely stripped. There are no more windows, no more wires, no more chrome decals, no more parts at all. She is ready to be sandblasted.

2. The engine bay has been completely rebuilt with new frame rails, floor pan supports, flat panel walls, and a new rod and custom suspension has been installed with power rack and pinion steering in place.

3. The rear has been completely rebuilt including torque boxes, floor pans fixed, new rear 9" assembly with a new differential, new leaf springs, new edelbrock shocks.

4. The car is on it's new wheels/tires. It's rolling and just needs to be rolled out and sandblasted now.

This means we're at the hump. We just need to sandblast, do a little more body work, and then paint. Then we will be putting her back together. It's getting exciting.
