    Thanks Pete for the additional interior rubber mats information 👍

    yes Rusty, I agree it’s a good project shell, just a few problems areas and I think it’s a piece of cake for KCW 😎😁

    Get it done! You had the flat dividers welded in before you ever had the replacement parts to fit everything together. Wire harness tube just appears from out of nowhere. You make it look soo easy!

    JJ is a magician. He was still kick as on this rig when I left the shop at 1030 tonight.

    I worked the inner structure along the pass side a couple weeks ago while cutting out the junk stuff and waiting on metal to arrive. I should up date more often. Sorry Juan.

    Going to put some time in today on this…   Juan… Your making me want to dig out a low light to build for myself!!!!

    Looks like maybe the 56 and 57 out back were trout blue… maybe I can find a spot nice enough to buff?

    Yeah… I went out there to hack off that fender piece from one out back… and it was already hacked over itself….. 😎  so I ended up just bending some green metal and slapping it into place… 😎  Right side looking good.. Inner fender area all cleaned up out rockers etc…  I’ll probably work on this some again tomorrow… 😎
