    a little more progress, but still have a ways to go. I've started removing trim pieces and gaskets on body to prepare for paint, but one of the screws on the passenger side mirror is being problematic. soaked in pb blaster, and still won't budge. started to strip. auuuugh! I actually think I've been pretty lucky as this is the first one thats been like that.

    update time! Car is being taken to paint next Wednesday. While it's not running yet, much of the engine bay is done, and the body trim and panels are removed. the only things that *need* to be done before paint are removal of the front fender liners, (so we can put the fenders back on, obviously, LOL) and welding a plug in for the antenna hole. I'd also like to get the clutch and brake lines completed and bled..

    While things have gone mostly smoothly during the project, there's been a casualty.. when removing the finish panel, we had an issue arise.

    no biggie, Steve suggested I glue it back together... since it was going to paint, I figured why not, I can try that. Then I had another accident

    Crap, and when fitting it back together, noticed some slivers were actually missing along the cracks, so no gluing for Charlie. reviewed prices online, and decided to order the LRB finish panel. It should be here before he's done painting, so I should be able to take it to him to take care of. Added expenses on a car project? who'd have thunk it!

    I’ve only had one finish panel explode like that and I was gutted. Glad LRB will be there in time. Cannot wait to see the paint!!
