don't let them get you down. keep going, it's only metal. just work on one area at a time finish it and move to the next take your time and lots of measurements. I have worked on worse than that.

Wow. there must be something special about that car, looks like it will be a 20k metal restoration for a 6k car.

Wow, glad you have the passion to save that thing. I've never given up on one but that one would make me cut the vin's off and buy a Dynacorn body. Hats off to you.

As little of the trans tunnel is left, I'd pull it out too, sell it to someone for a shifter repair patch and put a 1 piece floor in. Much easier fitment of 1 piece of sheetmetal than attaching 4 patch panels to what is left.

Today Brian started working on the left sail panel.

This is what he started with



He removed the rusted out section



Cleaned it with a wire wheel



Brushed a thick coat of SPI epoxy

I appreciate the determination you have for this coupe. This is almost as bad as that Charger they restored on "Chop-Cut-Rebuild" show.
What did you pay for that coupe?

My car was purchased in 1965 in Huntington Beach, CA, and has spent its entire life on the coast. When I first purchased the car it seemed like there was very little rust. I know there is rust in the cowl and on the passenger floor pan, but this is making me question how much. Time to pull out the checkbook.

What type of wire wheel did you use to clean the rust off? Was it a twisted wire type?
