The other day Mobby and me were outside of my house takin a look at his car.  My neighbor happened to be outside at the time and suggested Mobby "take some tranny fluid and dump it down the carb" but he told us to make sure we did it behind a factory and only at night cause of the pollution it makes   Anybody ever heard of this?

Steve, I only buy the best (long as I can afford it) ask Mobby...But ya I do have the disease and I've wanted to learn to weld for a few years now, just never had the reason to...My dad actually has a couple of welders, so I'm gonna see if I can't get him to show me the basics to get me started.

The more I read the sadder I get   ...Anyways, I know a few people with welding experience and they have their own welders, gonna see if I can talk to them about helpin me out.  If nothing else, I might have to just part it out and take the loss   Only time will tell, but it does seem as though I'm in way over my head, especially since I don't have much experience in restorations....yet

...Not a damn thing 
Remember how we were worried about frame rail rust?   Well it's there...
This is why I need new trunk flooring (notice the already done quarter panel patches):







Hello Driveway, Look at that frame rail

I haven't ordered anything yet...been pickin up random odds and ends at work (electronic ignition conversion, filters, plugs, wires, etc.)  Really wanted to take a ride up to Jack's, Lea has me sold on it   But if I do order anything it will be the trunk floor and possibly the rear floor panels.  Steve, I'd be awesome if u could make me a 2 wheel well replacements...I'd take the trip up with Mobby and pick 'em up and give ya the cash for 'em (as for Mobby, I can't say the same )  I'll have to take a few measurements and pull out the entire trunk floor to see if I really will need both wheel wells, but I'm gonna go out on a limb and say most likely I will.
Long as weather permits, I'd like to have the trunk floor completely removed tomorrow, so I can see exactly where I stand.

General Tech / Body Sheet Metal Question

O boy, O boy I need to bribe Mobby with some cake or something and make him take the ride.  Hopefully within the next couple of weeks, so I can really get started on this bad boy

General Tech / Body Sheet Metal Question
« on: April 28, 2008, 02:14:39 PM »
Ok, so the more I search around for trunk floors, interior rear replacement floors, etc. I find that there a few online sites with most of what I need but at different prices.  Was curious to know if anybody has ordered replacement sheet metal from any online store and if so which?  I found replacement rocker panels for $72 for the set on one site and then $49.95 each on another....If anybody has any other suggestions please let me know, I'm open to just about any ideas thus far
