Pics look decieving.All the hard work is in the rear portion of the car.All fabricated from scratch--no repro Cramaro panels here.
Ray and I are just a couple of amateurs having fun with an old C and all the toys...tools available at our disposal LOL.
The more obvious changes are coming....say tuned..

Today is my first day of holidays and will be working on her feverioushly.
Last night I tested the sending unit hotrodnwillie donated to the BoaB.It can be soldered up to stop the leak.I used my ohm reader and it does work,so in theory my guage should read what's in the tank.
I have a lot to do in a short time,and the only way to do it is get my ass away from this pooter...

We left at 6 am,got stuck in Toronto's rush hour traffic arond 8-9 am.
Drove a while longer picked it up at 12.Left a half hour later and got home 5 pm.Had supper,a beer and started dismantling.
I could not wait! Even after dark I was still going! Jamie and Rusty popped in and I stopped around 8 pm.
This is what I achieved in a short time..

Yes.Someone in the past swapped a lot of parts on this car.The green car was parted out.Most of the green car is in the trunk!!
Today I continued to rape the beast of parts.
The crossover and middle pipe are in great shape.I will use them.Rebuilt brake booster.Nice windshield and front bumper.

Car is a real turd interior and body wise.However mechanically,the car was kept up.Even the muffler and tailpipe is fairly new-it is still shiny!The gas tank has been treated and has a protective coating on it.
Even the brakes were functioning when I rolled it off the trailer!!
New parking brake cables ,new u-joints

Geez Lea, that car is shot , but at least your getting some good parts
off of it so part of that car will live again. Hope everything
continues according to plan.
