My new pet



Several bullet holes, shot out side glass, but the rear glass is safe!

Rockers are solid, as is everything under the fenders! The rear tray and firewall need help and the rear apron will require some serious bending.








Found some nice paint hiding... oh, and another bullet hole.

Upper & lower ball joints ordered, POR-15 ordered... what a freaking mess! Amazingly, the steering stuff is all good. Shock upper bolts are frozen solid. So... I had to move everything to get the trailer over by the garage and in range of the air compressor.

Spent the morning prepping my pan for POR-15. I found one more hole, right under the driver's heal. So... there will be a bit more to weld prior to coating.
