    Hahahaha! I did go to autorama, but we took the daily not the coupe.... but I found some inspiration somewhere in detroit... came home and repaired the area above the decklid and a few other things too.

    Fixed the rotted header area. I sliced a piece of 16ga 1x2 in two planes lengthwise and welded it in for the inner, overkill... but what could it hurt. Then I bent up a long Z from 20ga sheet and tacked in to replace the shot outer skin.

    You may have noticed from that pic that the roof wasn't on the car...hehe... squint... hard.

    I'm with JJ. You're amazing.

    One minute I'm chatting with you at Autorama and the next minute your posting pics of the progress you've made.

    Maybe I'll invite you up to my place for lunch. By diner you'll have my sedan chopped and channeled.

    It was good seeing ya man. The chop looks awesome.
