I put two small speakers in the kick panels and two on the parcel shelf. To do again, i think i would put rears on lower rear seat bulkhead out of sight. Just dont cut the damn doors!

No way I'm cutting my pristine door cards. 

 

My buddy is not wasting any time. Car now sprayed with 4 coats of Super Build 4:1 primer. Many hours of block sanding ahead...

This project is really coming along in a very timely manner!
I must thank you.
Your updates are a real inspiration.
The last few that you've posted have literally made me go right to working on mine.
The seemingly endless amount of sanding is very de-motivating step... I figure about 5 or 6 more of your progress reports and I should be able to move onto the next phase.
So thank you sir!

Just while i think of it, be careful when reattaching hood to hinges and adjusting the support brackets. If the hood is misaligned, it can snag edge of front cowl as it opens. Very tricky. Just go VERY slowly. The support bracket bolts on the fender tops affect the way it opens more than you might think.

I basically learned to weld on this car; but I couldn't begin to learn bodyman skills and expect anything good to come of it.  Mitch is doing all the body work/prep/and paint.  All I'm doing is writing the check... :mellow:  After seeing his previous work, I can rest-assured that the CS will look amazing when he's done.

Dropped off the hood and deck lid this morning. Mitch had shot top primer last night to give himself a color change to block against.

Still plenty to do, but so impressed how he's gone all-in on the car. Many hours, every day. I can't thank him enough.

Mitch busy in the salt mines again today. Deck lid was in terrible shape, thankfully, the hood was better.

Doors temporarily rehung to block sand and match body lines. Papa provides inspection :)

Welded a new battery tray in and the front jack points, as well.

Lots of blocking to go, but every day is another step closer.

Thanks all... Mitch caught the flu, so we are in a holding pattern.  I have my own rat-killing to finish on the car, but I think we'll be back on task soon enough.
