    Even more in the last 24...just no pictures to show yet. Basically down to exterior/body/paint now.
    Still a few odds and ends on the list, such as the drive-train skid plate and rear shock gussets on the diff.

    A little more visual update...

    The front is pretty much complete now


    and it was time to tackle the quarters.


    They had the classic "rip/torn folded and hammered sheet metal that is commonly found under overs.
    I'm not running overs so that had to be removed


    As you can see in the right side picture, the inner hasn't been welded in yet, whereas it's being installed on the driver's side

    A lot more work has been done...it's just hard to keep up with the pics!

    ^Thanks!

    Updates...

    Quarter panel work


    Here's what I had to get rid of


    and after


    and the other side


    Did up some trunk hinges



    Plumbing to the rear (fuel and brakes) is routed through the cockpit


    And that's all the pics for now.

    I took the car out for a spin around the lot where the shop is...everything seems to function as it should. This car is going to be soooo much fun out on those country roads and tearing through the open fields.

    Ready to head out for the test run


    and returned from successful test run


    There's still a ton to do, not even including paint. I'll have to get the glass back in after it's painted, fabricate a skid pan, gusset the rear shock mounts, bigass mud flaps...I can't even remember everything on the list right now.

    It's crazy to think that is the same purple slammed giant wheel wearing levin!
    Did you weld those quarters on already? Looked like they were pop rivets or kleco pins holding them on?

    I had cleco'd them on at first. I didn't weld them on. I took a page from the new book of bodywork. They are bonding panels on these days. They're glued and sealed all the way around, and you don't get the warping one might expect from welding exterior sheet metal. I used sheet metal screws to hold everything tight until the adhesive had dried.
    Those giant wheels that were on there challenged the build. I had to hammer the wheel well back out so the clutch pedal would fully engage, and the other side so the heater blower motor could fit back in. Also had to rebuild the transmission tunnel so things could fit properly in there too.

    Very cool, Trevor!

    I suppose that gluing on the panels makes them easier to replace them too?
