This weekend I stripped and epoxied the inside of the trunk lid and jamb.

I have not dropped the block off at the machine shop yet, but it appears to be salvageable. The damage was caused from not having the hood installed on the car. He had a car cover on it, but it wasn't exactly a waterproof cover so rain went down a carb and found it's way through an open intake valve.

I guess you are lucky it only got one cylinder. My 64 LeMans had a 69 400 that was left with no heads for years. It was so rusted I could not break any thing loose. The heads were Ram air 3 and they were left in the trunk with no rear glass. I live in Florida which rains a lot, it filled the trunk with water and soaked the heads. I thought they were a lost cause so I gave them away to a guy. he said they cleaned up but I never saw them. Your car is so clean. I wish mine was better. Thanks... Bud...

Hey gang, I had a great weekend and got lots done. I painted and cleared my inner trunk lid and jamb then bolted the lid back on the car. I then attacked the underside of the hood which was in bad shape, but it was no match for my new media blaster setup.

While I had my media blaster out I went ahead and took care of the other rusty pieces I had set aside.

Hey gang, I got the car sealed up in epoxy and high build primer yesterday and I'm hoping someone can answer a question.

What is everyone doing with this strange body line on the rear quarter?

At first I thought it was creased, but after looking at replacement quarter pictures I can see the line. When I look at 64-65 on the internet I don't really even notice this body line at all. Is everyone eliminating it? I do think it's rather odd and out of place.

After doing some more research that body line should not be there from what I've found. Time to see what's going on with that quarter panel.
