1968 GTO Hardtop Coupe Resto-Mod

My project is located in Fairbanks, Alaska.
Disassembly is complete.
All major structural and drivetrain components are rebuilt and preparations are being made for reconstruction.
Please consider yourself invited to participate in advising me as I proceed.

first question going by your picture...WHY!! I am far from a purist but that looks like a clean relatively original car, please tell me it was a bondo bucket and needed to be taken apart and half of it thrown in a scrap heap.
