Let there be light! (And door locks and glass too...) It was weird to sit in the car with the doors closed, windows shut, and the stereo on - it's been a long time since that has happened...

Yellow Rustoleum (thinned a bit), and a cheap artists brush.

Thanks all!

On the Road Again!!! 66 Monza Reassembly

Well, April and May were a blur with the kids soccer, orchestra, etc., but I did get a lot done, so....

The car is on the road!!!! I'm still attaching little things here and there, but for the first time since 1997, this car legally was doing 60mph yesterday, and running pretty well. Pics to come...

Thanks to all who've supported this venture with parts, advice, amusement, etc! I've been working this car since Nov of 1997 (with a bunch of unproductive years in the middle), so this was a 10 year voyage. Now I can enjoy the car as a driver, not a restorer smiling smiley

I'm attaching a few pics to capture the "first bath". It still needs a complete wet sand and polishing, but I want to drive it for a while. Other than putting the rocker trim on, this is pretty much complete.

how did you secure the wood for the package tray? Looks like it just sits there.

Ron
The material around the back is thin (3/16"?) fiberboard (MDF) bent around a 3/4" piece of plywood. Same MDF for the face behind the seat. It's attached by my lagging wooden cleats to the sides - I used masking tape to mark where I needed the panel to sit to align to the side panels. I put a block of wood on the underside toward the back to provide support in the rear.

The front panel was made with a relief for the seat movement, and I screwed the panel to the cross bracket to assure it mounted securely.
