Made some good progress on the main rot/rust. Got some steel plate to support the roll bar under the rear fenders. Cousin Jamie has thought me a ton during this process, seeing that in knew nothing comming to this project. Got the main Rot fixed up. Just a few more spots to button up. Then time to mud and sand.

It has been awhile since I have been able to post, I have made significant progress. Put in about 30 hours of labor it this past weekend and The body restoration and paint/rhino lining is completed. Planning to trailer the Tub back home tomorrow. I will try and drop some pics online today if I can.

Feels good to know this part is finally completed and I can start reassembly.

Looks real good. I like that particular yellow. What brand of paint is it, and what is the color called? It looks like Rally Yellow, the color of new Camaro's.

There's a fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness".
