Lmao. A proper burial in in order for time served! I think the EPA may think otherwise though.

One rusty car helps bring back another rust free car. Makes sense to me. 

And actually it helps more than one car as I was lucky enough to acquire the side trim for that which is missing from my Bel Air. 

Thanks for that.

Glad that you were able to use the side trim John. You helped me out to thank you. Nice to see the parts I don't need go to good homes! She has given up a few more parts for other cars as well I put an add on Craigslist and a guy from Ohio needed the column shift linkage among some other parts. I was surprised at that one, glad I had it!!

image.jpgOk here's a quick update on some progress of Project Beastcayne
The floors are now fixed and solid again. I started last Sunday 4-19. Did the big driver side first and worked my way to the progressively smaller holes. It's easier for me to do it that way as I hate patching floors!👺 I finished the patches and painted it all on Friday 4-24. There was a lot of fiberglass patch on the driver side front. The patch was from
Cars inc ( local to me ) and fit like a glove. The pass side front was a cut from the Belair parts car the rest I made from some sheet metal I have. All welded in. I cleaned and scuff sanded everything well brushed the big dust and vaccumed the rest. A quick wipe a tac cloth. I used POR 15 on the rusty metal as it is what I had sitting around. I then used Rustoleum Satin black to coat the whole floor pan. It had been sitting for a while so I pealed the 1/4 of hardened stuff off the top, thinned it with some naphtha and added a Hardner for oil base enamel in the proper 16-1 ratio. Brushed away Done!! I have a few spots I will re calk and spot paint. I like to do it that way so there is no bare metal to calk (less chance of moisture contamanation) Next on the list is to tear the dash apart to prep for paint and r&r the heater box and controls from the Belair. Then the fun job of rewiring the car!!

I have a couple of areas under my bench seat to do, but I will be removing the entire panel from the firewall seam to the rear seat seam, and the brace underneath.
It COULD be patched, but I would rather just replace the full panel with a piece from a donor car.

Spike, Thanks, Glad it was of help to you. I can recommend the Pypes systems. Good quality stuff. Suggestion I have is have your gas tank in there first! It's great that people share their builds, I have observed and learned a lot from other peoples work. I look forward to seeing your progress.

That pypes quality looks good. I have a bunch of 3" stainless from custom system that I will be using I just need to get a 3" x pipe. I will be making what I have work as this will be a temporary system. I will be upgrading to some sort of turbo I think I will have to run tailpipes with 2 chamber mufflers. I did not plan on running them but the drone will be crazy without them.I'm sure it be quite a chalange to get 3" up over the axle when the car is 2" lower in the rear! The other option I have been thinking about is late model gm van mufflers there quiet not sure how restrictive they are though. I think they will support 400 hp ok though! I will take your advice on making sure the fuel system is done and the tank installed before I run any exhaust thanks for the tip

I have been working on the car a bit and found fiberglass in the cowl! I am repairing it with some metal. I am sure the rear window is in the same shape. Also found fiberglass in the trunk moulding flange. I cut the part I need out of my belair parts car. I am fixing all the structure first before moving on to anything else lol.
