Sweet. I noticed it’s a semaphore car.
Yeah!! ‘58 rag. euro spec car. Will go back to stock color, L334 glacier blue.
Made progress this weekend. Had to bend up a couple repair sections for the pass heat channel.
Moved on rear parcel tray repair.
Couple more small patches and I can put the bottom cap on. Started poking at rear body mounts. Those will have to be done as well.
We will build it if it comes.BBWBParticipantDecember 24, 2018 at 8:10 amPost count: 1050
You’re going to have that body one solid chunk in no time! Great work Pat!

I wonder if Pat is thinking a stock resto?? Or lowered custom?? I think he likes the stock color… which slips my mind at the moment….Pat KModeratorDecember 30, 2018 at 8:13 amPost count: 2000

Getting there. Heater channels are done!
Just finished burning in pass rear body mount this morning. Sectioned out the square shock bolt hole in the aftermarket panel to the correct round hole.

Finished pass side yesterday evening. Added the second layer to reinforce the bolt hole area and dressed welds.
Also got started on the drivers side.

Spent some time on this yesterday. Body mount was in the wrong spot on the aftermarket section, leaning forward and about 1” to far back at the bolt hole.
Drilled out the spot welds and relocated to the correct spot. Sectioned in the correct shock bolt hole. Fit and ready to burn in.
We will build it if it comes.
