Thanks guys! I appreciate all the feedback! It’s so much fun!!! Next week I’ll start the cutting and buffing of the body, then some reassembly. Dirty work is done!!!

Cheers

Dave

Ok, well...it ain't next week but I started to assemble the body which will make it easier to wetsand and polish. Starting to look like a car! You can see I reattached the body buck tag by the fender, and as I may have mentioned before, my tag is actually a Mercury trim tag. This was part of Ford's recycling process for a few months at the Dearborn plant. My car just happens to have one of those tags! Oh... and I found out that 610 is the second rotation number, and the body buck tag has the first one in the upper right hand corner. A neat thing to see!

Now I just need to spend a day and blast a bunch of parts in the cabinet for reassembly. Anyone want to help? Mikey? I'm looking in your direction! I pay good....well...goodly... whatever is half of the hourly rate charged by the proprietor, you get a percentage that's worth half of what the other half is. And while you're thinking of that.... I'm running to the bank! Mmmwwwashahaha.... cough... cough..... of sorry... there I go getting carried away again

Cheers
Dave

Killer work, as usual. That Mercury tag is pretty crazy and it's hard to believe they did stuff like that.
