And the rain held out, almost.
Today, I got my passenger tail light brackets, stolen from the 78, welded in and finished sanding mud all around the back. As I said before, I am only getting the body work close until I can move the car to Mike's and get some good k2 primer on the whole car. I will tackle all the fine detailing at that point. A light coat of etching primer to keep the surface rust at bay for now.
I'm a geek right? I had to put the tail lights in, just to see it. I am very happy with how clean it all looks!
