  2. Based on all the other work I've seen of yours we all know it will be a work of art when you get thru with it. Todd

    sOMETIMES the rust just appeals to you. I got a cherry one, but the rusted one . . . . I guess it's just man rooting for the underdog.

    Looks like just about what I started with except mine had a tree fall on the drivers side roof and quarter. Mine is starting to shape up but I welded in just about every patch pannel they make plus had to make a few on my own.

    well started working on my coupe

    gonna start with subrails and a firewall and work my way off of that

    [​IMG]

    welded some nuts to the screws that hold the firewall to the gas tank since it was nearly impossible to get them to budge with a screw driver

    [​IMG]

    firewall out

    [​IMG]

    headed to the blasters tomorrow

    the previous owner decided to go at the hinges with a torch for what ever reason which really makes me mad since 4 screws came out with a screw driver and a few taps with a hammer. im sure if i woulda soaked the screws with some blaster and heat the all would have came loose.

    a stack of ruined hinges

    all the hinges out and a pile of 1930 ford metal haha

    doesnt look like much but to me its progress. firewall out .doors off and hinges off. pretty soon the cowl will go to the blasters.
