Fender fits last night. The rears Dan sent fit pretty darn nice.
Few pinholes to fix here and there.
The one front fender we received needed lots of love in all the wrong spots.
Found a pair of fronts in JJs bone yard in betrer them average shape we can work with.
We will build it if it comes.tlambertParticipantAugust 24, 2020 at 1:17 pmPost count: 418

68-69 tail lights are more rare than 62-67. Duh. 😉
We’ll dig some correct ones out of the parts trailer.alykatParticipantAugust 26, 2020 at 6:39 amPost count: 630
I think there may be a couple of sets in one of those boxes of stuff I dropped off.Pat KModeratorAugust 26, 2020 at 1:08 pmPost count: 1994
Between last night and Monday night I finished fitting removables.
Drivers door lower hinges was jacked up!
Found a correct, dry, super straight replacement door in the pile out back. Little bit of pushing required to get the gaps right.
Had to steal an outer set hinges from a junk door for the pass side.
Both decklid hinges needed nuts welded to the backsides due to stripped threads in the hinge plate itself.
Welded and dressed a few cracks around the bottom edge of the decklid.
Made sure headlight fit the fenders. Pass side needed just a little love.
Rear apron had a couple good dents along the top edge.
Had to do a bit of stud pulling, slicing, hammer/dolly work, welding and grinding.
Drivers rear fender rust repair 90% done. Just a little grinding on the back side and a couple small spots to weld. Also shaved the overrider hole and the late model tail light mount hole.
Getting there. Just three more fenders to look over for needed rust repairs and then fix the bottom of the pass door.
We will build it if it comes.John JonesModeratorAugust 26, 2020 at 4:48 pmPost count: 7855

I like seeing the lights mocked up and doors mocked up and fenders and everything …. Looks like after blasting, we will be able to move right into body work…. can’t wait to spread some mud… 😎ColeBModeratorAugust 26, 2020 at 7:14 pmPost count: 2197
