The old collision damage to right front was hidden by old paint, it has been repaired. The next problem was badly rusted windshield frame which was repaired by cutting out bad sections and tack welding in new metal and then coating with anti-corrosion primer. The body is now primed and ready for paint. Mike just finished porting the heads and will work on completing the engine rebuild. Removing the body from the frame is next, then the frame will be stripped for sand blasting and powder coating.

Keep the updates coming. It's neat when someone takes the time, effort and money to bring one back to great condition.[:p]
