Well the seats are out as well as the carpet.  The floor is in MUCH better condition than I hoped for.  After I took these pictures I vac'd out the inside and don't look like too much to really do.  Some surface rust to clean up and that's about it.  So that leaves me with the situation of not knowing what to really do here.  What I mean is, do I just clean the surface rust, then leave the rest of the floor as is?  Or do I go through with my original plan or POR15'ing the entire floor and trunk area to ease future worries?   What would you do?  
 
Also at a loss if I should replace the carpet or clean the heck out of the original and call it good.   I'm a bit worried about the jute on the bottom of the carpet if I clean up this carpet with water. 
 

 

 

 

 
 
 
I did find a pleasent supprise under the carpet in the passenger foot well.  A third build sheet.  Seems to be the most complete one yet.  What are B and C in the lower right corner?

Boy those floors look good... from the cars I see when I visit daughter
in Denver, CO is a pretty dry state, the old cars there tent to look
pretty rust free.  I'd use POR-15, I put it under and  on the
floors and trunk my 70 Nova and 71 F3 and so far am very pleased with
it,  been on the Nova 2 yrs now.

Thanks. I don't want to have to do this again if youknow what I mean.  The idea was/is to do the inside floor, then get under this beast use a needle scaler and remove everytihng I can, prep it then por it.

The vent design was a one year only attempt on better ventilation.68 saw the Auto-Temp nd rear heat systems appear in place of it.

Fast tops are soooooooo much sexier w/o the crappy vinyl roof.

Always liked that roofline... there's a decent looking 68 Plym F3 with
that top been sitting in a yard for years on the way to Watkins Glen,
always tempted to stop in... or afraid to, it might be for sale, ;-)

I had a 67 Newport fast top. Total stripper (Of course.  It was ordered by my father   ) in a gorgeous blue.  I've been looking for that car ever since...

I keep forgetting to tell you
 
Eastwood makes a real good rust converter.  You can spray it on and it's water soluable.  You just prime and paint over it too.  I love this stuff.  Spray everything with it.  Look at the frame on the 62.  That's not PAINT!  That's what it looks like on rusty metal.
 
They also make a frame rust converter.  Comes in Aerosol and a little hose with a nozzel.  Good idea with all these sub frames rotting away.  I know the one in Polaraco and the 68 won't ever rust out.  The 62 is getting it as the 65 will.  Works great in the rear box frames too.
 
Both of those products are pricey, but worth the money.  I let that rust converter sit in the weather for months and it was still there when I finished Polaraco.  That was the rust popping out around the rear top molding.  It was on top there all winter.  Goint to take a Hyperdermic needle and shoot some into the spots under the top too.

Those were the days when you had more to choose from besides a color and model.  Everything was ala-carte'  unlike todays cookie cutting with different sprinkles

Well hell.  THis weekend wasn't good to me. I knew it was bound to happen, my luck had to run out somewhere.  Went out and got the screw extractor this weekend so I could finish taking off the lower moldings with out fudging them up and all was a success, (in the best monte python type crowd voice) yay.    That was until I noticed the flaky lookin paint behind the rear wheels.   Broke out the hammer and awl, went right through like butter.
