well this has been going for some time but i think having a "build thread" will keep me moving as fall turns to winter. I got side tracked last December with having to get a section of my intestine removed and just had to have the hernia which resulted from the operation patched up today... anyways I hope to have the car painted in a still to be determined type and color(s) by next summer. most the major rust repairs are done. here are a few pictures and a link to my albums http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/album.php?albumid=12910 http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/album.php?albumid=15353 it is a DIY budget build, started as a monster truck with a blown engine, dropped it on to a 61 Belair frame and running gear, drove it two summers and dug back into the body a year ago. feel free to ask if i do not post any progress every few weeks. the next 6 weeks will be slow until i can lift, but i plan to focus next on small parts.
