          1961 Fordabaker Lark!

          From Bill ~ FINSRIN. Continuing with building 1961 Lark as a hotrod. Parts are Studebaker, FoMoCo, or general after market. Ford engine, trans, rear end, wiper motor, hood scope, seats. Looking at possible FoMoCo tail lights too. So is a Fordabaker.
          Took body off frame this week.
          Was on frame for fabrication compatible with frame, drive line, etc. Rear seat fabrication to take 2005 Mustang seat, four A/C ducts, power cables from trunk mounted battery and power cut off switch was involved. Body off frame to finish what was tack welded, access to firewall welding. After that: priming & painting all of body inside & outside and undercoating underside. Then back on frame for final assembly, wiring, interior, etc..... Here are some pix.

            Thanks Ray for posting pictures. Had various interruptions (life gets in the way) past couple years, but back at it. Progressing at good pace now. One does not appreciate what is involved in non-stock fabrication until in midst of it yourself. Not doing this much on another car.
