It has been a while. Finally the car is in the shop getting the driver's rocker replaced. Also getting all of the engine sheet metal blasted and painted. Hoping to get the power train back in and it derivable before the end of fall.

I am also relocating the battery to the front, and will make some block off plates for the stock battery and spare tire areas in the engine bay.

Whelp, the repairs are under way. Found that the floor seam that meets the rocker seam was pulling its self apart as well, so that is getting fixed now also.

Keep working on that to-do list. It's real fun when that list gets smaller and smaller.
In the mean time, reflect on what you have already done.thumbs up That boosts the momentum to keep going with the things left to do.

Looking good! smileys with beer

Thanks Dave! It helps to have all of this "down time" and the space now. I've also been hosting tech sessions for the local club(s). Helps gain experience for everyone in a safe environment. I have plenty of spare parts to practice on, and give away a lot of it to club members. I would rather see these cars on the road than waiting on parts.
