Actual Progress:-)

I got the body spinning, I don't plan to go 360 just 90 degrees either way to vertical. SUCCCESS!!

My hunny came out to run the pin for me as the car is still a little below the center of gravity. I can push it up the vertical myself but certainly can't reach the pin at the same time. I raised the front to help but it is still below center..... not sure if this matters? I think this is just for convenience? If so it is very convenient to start grinding:-)

This is a big night and huge thanks go to Terry and Shane that each loaned me rotisserie items and helped me switch the frame for the body:-)

I am sore, and sweaty, and tired, and Happy!!!

Ryan

Well done

Get that retired grinder back out on the job. You should have that under carriage done in no time and reverse the entire process and get that body back on the nice freshly restored frame

Shane that loaned me the brackets shared these pictures of his 1970 Cutlass S W31, so I am not worried about them breaking:-)

We be grinding:-)

I covered or removed the last of the stuff in the garage and got started grinding the floor. I cleaned one stripe at arm height, wow this rotisserie is a magical ergonomic device:-)

The floor is in great shape, a few spots at the rear wheel wells otherwise it looks perfect!!!
