I am so jealous of your work shop. I get to go out and remove my body today/tomorrow and just a shade tree mech. Nice job, a lot of sanding, and time that took.

Looks like you're moving along nicely - wish I was able to stay on my project and knock it out! I've been trying to do the last little bit of welding so that I can finish up my M100 floor replacement! I hope to get that done and rebuild and install the spare 'a1 engine before the rally in April.

Keep up the good work and STAY ON IT!

Saberr, You are well on the way with yours and it seems like you are driven enough to see the restore through. All of your efforts so far will be well worth it once you get her back together, fire her up (again) and drive her around the neighborhood! Keep at it and don't forget to send me pics!
