    Fender fits last night. The rears Dan sent fit pretty darn nice.26146159-CF50-41A1-96DC-79E57AEBD1E01F159994-3BA7-4A07-9E87-A8D470DB40D1393EDA90-7753-4D83-88CA-A7ECB8AA098A477316A5-4D8C-4021-99FE-15BA0E02541C2805F85F-5676-4073-8B9C-7905B72E06B7

    The one front fender we received needed lots of love in all the wrong spots.F02DB62E-72DE-4C43-A3FA-71F81EBB61F9

    Found a pair of fronts in JJs bone yard in betrer them average shape we can work with.1E7B18C4-DB3D-4D8B-AA17-57F95E8EED012AD88303-68B5-4E38-BC4C-1BA745BA929BC66D96FB-C6D2-48F5-846E-45700C3C242F62DF791F-4EBE-4061-A4A2-73CC4FA027CA

    Late models are the rage. I would trade my 61 for a 74 straight up right now.

    68-69 tail lights are more rare than 62-67. Duh. 😉

    We’ll dig some correct ones out of the parts trailer.

    I think there may be a couple of sets in one of those boxes of stuff I dropped off.

    Between last night and Monday night I finished fitting removables.

    Drivers door lower hinges was jacked up!46CDF57E-1272-4594-8139-DCD2C3C8D5B9

    Found a correct, dry, super straight replacement door in the pile out back. Little bit of pushing required to get the gaps right. BCBCF27B-B3A0-49C7-8273-F7965135477E8CA03C97-5C25-4208-B4E9-2968CEF47142

    Had to steal an outer set hinges from a junk door for the pass side. CF41B857-B96C-48B2-9920-2979565F12BE18998541-78A4-4EAC-8A69-F7C180596CDD

    Both decklid hinges needed nuts welded to the backsides due to stripped threads in the hinge plate itself. 374C553F-D986-446D-9841-CEFBCE1AC8EB

    Welded and dressed a few cracks around the bottom edge of the decklid.E5AC41C4-8C66-46EF-B4F4-10356E0CA15D

    Made sure headlight fit the fenders. Pass side needed just a little love.F2EB2537-B5AE-498B-AA74-F345297EDAF273D6A2B7-D6A6-4D7D-8CF0-12A66156D759BF3E34A4-647B-4CCD-A4CB-15CC125FAB44

    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. DFED4A9C-A975-4DB2-81D4-046DFA00B8E0C22D6B8F-E907-40EF-8C43-55564DE849A3A1A1D0D2-ADBA-422A-8785-813CED25124D

    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.

    825AA1C0-EE45-4EB5-BDCE-F7C0CABAA2DE67C5ACA2-0B49-4B65-9222-CB786EC98871ADB38F7E-CDBC-4874-82C8-DE34039F13E8
    9EA215D1-769F-4941-9D4B-49AE4D8F9E0D

    Getting there. Just three more fenders to look over for needed rust repairs and then fix the bottom of the pass door.C5B8B99F-EE16-407C-A645-599369770C40D4CCB21E-A46F-4C99-952E-85B192E6E5AD
