    Just read the whole thread Nate, great metal work man. You have come a long way from where you started. Keep banging that car into shape.

    Thank you! i made some paper templates,more trunk fitting, and i have decided to follow through on re-doing the subrails. I'm 75 percent sure i can build the entire floor and subrail assembly outside of the car. Then pull the body, set up the chassis, install the floors then plop the body back on and re-shim maybe not in that order but something like that.

    I wrapped up the skirts at least until its time to make brackets, then i took a second run at making the kickup sections of the trunk floor that spot weld to the wheelwells. Going to trim and tune it,then attack the other side and center section of the floor.

    Inching along. I remade the very back panel but forgot about those trunk supports i made when i rolled the beads, so i'll just have to tweak them a bit.

    I started building the floors past the trunk riser. Its a tough spot because of the cutouts. I started by making the pieces that go from the top of the arch to the flat of the frame

    Thanks! Ive been trying to buy a part that i need, and make a part that i need each week. It will start to get more interesting soon, for now i struggled with the floor notches today, made a bunch of scrap, and finally got a pair made that fit the riser. I still need to brake and trim the flanges.After this i should be able to knock out the floor up to the back of the seat, then its gonna get crazy.

    I took the pieces i made back to my shop. My car is hard to crawl around in so i borrowed my shopmates 35 frame to lay out the trunk and temporarily screw it together
