The whole trunk and underbody I plan on rolling on bed liner when the rust is removed.

Rear axle was blasted and powdercoated as well. It was an open diff but not sure what the ratio was. It's now rebuilt with 3:36 gears and Auburn posi.

You are doing a great job. Has all the rust my '68 Lemans has. What's up with the rear corner caps at the rear quarters rotting out? I gotta repair mine as well along with trunk floor and quarters and...............

hey thanks! Yeah I used the passenger side as a guide to get the contour right. It's a pain in the butt no doubt.

Looks great. I have yet to tackle mine. My 68 runs and drives but needs all the same type body work. Cashing in all my change and saving on a monthly basis to start it.

Car looks to be about the same starting point as mine. I did some inspection on the driver side quarter and I think the work I've done is all for nothing. The quarter has rust issues throughout and think i'll most likely be doing a full driver side quarter.
