    Frosty, it has definitely been a learning experience! while fixing the section in front of the wheel well, I discovered the rocker had been welded to the door pillar in the wrong position. I knew the rocker was crashed, but damn! I never would have thought somebody would just weld it where it ended up. 1 inch too high and 1/2" too far in. The new metal tab on the bottom is where the rocker should be!

    rust out behind the rear bumper is fixed! replaced someone's bondo and window screen job with steel. Unfortunately, they never closed the underside so the interior panel was screwed as well.

    If I remember right, they are #8 sheetmetal screws.

    Not using a Chevy water pump pulley are you? That will give you the difference you mention. If you had the A/C pulley and spacer on the crank, and didn't put it back on, that will give 1/4" the other way.

    Nason 1 shot enamel. I use Rustoleum oil based enamel until I find the exact color I want, then have a local paint shop mix it up in Nason. The grille and firewall are rustoleum, fenders are Nason and I will use Nason for the rest when that time comes. The black inside the fenders and on the fuel tank braces is just the "farm" version of Rustoleum, very heavy, chemical and chip resistant.

    The bumper guards and crank hole cover really give it that OLD look!

    Located the gas tank and built the straps. Always hate a vehicle with the gas filler on the passenger side, so switching that to the driver side while I'm at it. Now that I have the tank mocked up, I can blast the area and build the floor pan.

    sand blasted the faces and the base plate. the plate needed some putty work for all the pits. filler primer then a rattle can of gloss white. The rustoleum paint and primer stuff is a little heavier and sticks really well. After it cured, put the decals on and let them cure. then clear coated everything with a single heavy coat to fill in along the edges of the decals.
