Well guys I may as well kick this off. The car is home, warming up in its new stall. Iím very excited to start this. Iíve loved these things for a long time and getting the opportunity is awesome. It seems to be quite solid. Weíll see when itís opened up, right. Outside rockers, sill membrane, and 3 doglegs are what appear to be bad. When we loaded it the cross members sure seemed to be really solid. I do have a question about the inside rear fender. Can that surface rust be cleaned out in there? I think I can replace the lower outer wheel wells with homemade repair panels. I really hate to cut out that rear fender to clean up the inner section.

Cut out the floors and rockers, inner membranes also decided to make my own partial castle rails. Ordered new sheet metal from the UK. Should be able to start putting in new metal this weekend.
