so we cut out the quarters due to some sickening bodywork, done over top of some old old "good" work done by different people by far. replacing the quarters, floors, and trunk pans, looking for a good set of wheelhouses for it as well.






before bracing, car measured within 1/16" of being square. not bad for being driven in hard on the right side by a pole ... the metal came back an easy 1/4" due to stress still being on the metal. more pics coming soon. this car is going back solid! :cool:

pissed me off that steel went up, shit was 1x1 x1/8" and $1 a foot. well, $75 invested in keeping the car from falling on itself was well worth the cash.,

this came from Tennessee, rear setup had telltale tubing welded on lowers, had to be old school coilunder and never 3'd. got it from classickustoms. he does metal work, but i do hope he didnt touch this car. it had a nice metalflake blue paint job and was driven down in pensacola florida maybe 5 yrs ago. older bodywork shows some work done and the panels replaced were ate up more than the rest of the car. tons of mud! but its going back right. :cool:
