Nice job!

You are now at the point where I start to enjoy the restoration. Everything is now one color and you can see all the flaws and work on them. TAKE YOUR TIME!!! I can't stress that enough! Its in epoxy primer and you no longer have to worry about any rust on the major areas, and now strive for perfection!!!

Keep posting pictures too!

After painting Epoxi primer on all bare metal area, I took off the doors, hood & trunk as this is the next area to dig into. As it was such a sunny day last weekend ( have been for many weeks as a matter of fact ) I took out the car for cleaning up the garage. While have her outside in the sun, naked, I though I needed to feel how it is to drive a car without windows, no doors, no seatbelt, hood or trunk. It was... fresh Hereīs a little video I uploaded http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sHjJS...ature=youtu.be

Man that looks fun, I like to drive my cars around like that. Freedom of all of that safety stuff is a wonderful thing.

It was nice here today 60 degrees. We had 7" of snow on Sunday. I had the shop doors open today. A couple of lingering snow drifts just outside the door slowly melting, the radio on playing classic rock n roll and had to shut the doors around 6:00 pm this evening because mosquitoes where coming in, weird.

It was a supprice to me as well. One of those things that came out in the flesh when I sanded down all paint. Itīs also located quite badly as there is a bracket ( well, part of the nose ) right under there, so itīs tricky to reach. I will get a lift within 4 weeks or so, (delayed two times for 10 weeks in total now) and when that arrive, the engine & tranny will go out. I need to be able to drive out for installation of the lift. Then I will cut the bracket, hammer it a bit and weld the bracket back. At the moment I work on the doors. Cleaning them up underneith and around from contact glue. One painted with Epoxi primer today They will soon go back on the car so I can start the real scary job, cutting up for "shaving the door handles".
Iīm very happy with how the doors also have survived without any rust. There was PLENTY of mud and clay on the inside of them

Finally got my lift
Needed to have that delivered before I can continue as I needed to be able to drive out the car as it came. Next up is taking out the engine & tranny, before sanding down the engine bay and put epoxi on the rest of the car.
Now, Does anyone knows what this little clips do? Itīs located in the lower rear corner of the door opening.

WoW! My 2000 post...

I have a small rubber bumper there. It looks like the rubber part on yours is gone.

Aha! Some kind of door stopper then? Could you take a pic of yours?
