About The Car

My photo
We got this car off of Ebay. It was in Dora, AL. We bought it for around $2500 which isn't bad. This car was in a basement for about 20 years, then sold to the guy we bought it off of, which kept it in a garage for a while too. So we were very confident that the body was in fairly good condition and it was. YAY!! Then we transported it from Dora to here in Aberdeen. Using a horse trailer A.K.A My dad's Van trailer. Now me (Danielle) and my dad (Phil) are going to return it to it's former beauty. Can you tell I love this car? I hope you will enjoy watching it transform as much as we will.

Don't we look concerned.

Now Putting In The New Floor Pan.

This is my friend "Sandy" (it's sand blasting sand) she is using her weight to help us get the floor pan fitted in.

And as you can tell we are smart we have the Maizetos (which are the best tortilla chips ever) and the Rust Converter right next to each other. We work and eat at the same time. Keeps us from going in the house so much. ;)

Now I'm brushing on the Rust Bullet.

This is an outline of where the floor pan will lay on the Front Frame Rail.

We outlined it so we know where to drill the holes for the spot welds ta-da!!!

Dad's spraying on Weld Thru Primer.

We had to drill screws down so we could keep the floor pan tight against where we were going to weld.

We measured THREE times to be sure not to cut it to long or short since we were going to butt weld it.

Those are the clamps we used to keep it all in place while dad welded.

You can't see it but right behind his glove is one of those clamps. He just welded a little on each side took the clamp out and connected the dots.

That's what it looked like when all said and done. :)
