II Progress

Well, I have been making some decent Progress on the II.... Funds have slowed down, so Im focusing on doing stuff that doesn't cost much or anything save for time lol. Im gonna get back on the body work, see if I can get this thing all smoothed out and get it ready for paint eventually, Ill also get the template done so I can drill holes for the third brake light :).... I might have to dig up some rubber plugs for the hatch after I do drill the holes. just have to see what happens. Well Im out, time to get off my ass and get to work %)

Productive Day

Today was a very Productive day.... Got my last few parts from the Powder Coater, picked up my Argon/CO2 tank from the welding supply shop and got to work. Finished up the welding on the back of the car, then had to pry open the 2 yr old POR-15 I still had left. Got the Area in the back of the car where the leafs sit al POR'd and got the rear Suspension installed, cept for the shocks and still need to finish the brakes. But its finally starting to look like a Car again. WOOHOO......

Hey Everyone,
             If you haven't seen the new pix on Flickr or facebook, I am finally making some Progress.  Got the front suspension in last week,  except for the front springs and strut rods.... still waiting on parts, and the Strut rods I got are the wrong degree..... also got the engine bay painted over the weekend, still need to do the top fender rails, but have a little bit of rust to still take care of there then seam seal before painting.  The goal is still to have it on wheels by 1 Aug, and to have the Engine in by end of Aug.  Almost all the parts are in.  Only thing Ill still need to pick up before dropping in the engine is the Clutch and Motor Mount (Rebuild Kits).   But it is getting there a little at a time. :)

After removing the suspension, you can also see the Battery area removed was all rotted out

Passenger side inner Wheel house all rusted...Found 2 holes in the wheel well, causing the moisture and 
Rust to start and rust out the 1/4 panel

The beginning

This image is from back in 1992 just after I had it painted.  I have a Picture from when I first got it, but will have to dig it up, and its not of the whole car.....
