So it has been a month, an update is needed.
More rust has been removed and we are getting closer to full restoration. I am almost done cutting away the bad stuff and ready to do repair work. At this point, old paint needs to be removed and a few rust spots cut out. But we are at that turning point of rebuilding the body. In fact we already have done some welding and rebuilding.
I probably should have done a frame off restoration, but I am trying to do this on the cheap. Well even though I have not done a frame off restoration, I am doing a hybrid version of it. By removing a large section of the floor, I can get to the frame easily. I have cleaned it and painted it with this undercoating rubberized black paint. You can see the newly painted frame in the first photo.
Sitting on top of it is the new floor supports from Classic Enterprises. It looks good and I am looking forward to welding that into place, but I need to address the gap between the new floor support and the existing floor support.
