Nope, they boxed '76 frames with the exception of about a foot on the front and a foot on the back.

Ok, here's my tire carrier all tacked up minus a vertical support bar that will angle from the top of the hitch to the lower horizontal bar.

Thanks guys!!! I'm hoping to bolt it on tomorrow and mount the spare for the first time in ten years. I also picked up high heat primer and paint for my exhaust manifolds for the build.

Good one! My two year old wanted me to swap in my extra amc 304 so she can jump the curbs.

I got the seat frames, sliders, power steering brackets and e-brake pedal assembly stripped, primed and painted today. My HF angle grinder crapped out on me in the middle of stripping the brake/clutch pedal assembly. I can't complain though because it took a beating over the past 3 years and only cost me $17. I'll grab another one when I restock on my wire wheels and grinding discs.

I pulled the brake/clutch pedal assembly apart so I can fit it in the blast cabinet and finish stripping it. I took some pics to help with reassembly. I learned my lesson when I tore down the hurst shifter. I posted the pics here so I can't lose them.

These are the last remaining small parts that needed to be stripped and painted. Once they're completed I will focus on the body parts and cage. I hope I can find a place locally where I can drop the tub, hood, grill, cage and windshield frame off and have them all stripped at the same time for a decent price.

Almost finished painting today but I ran out of paint while spraying the last part. Gotta run and stockup on rustoleum hammered black tomorrow. I have parts hanging everywhere.
