Put an order in for replacement panels

Well, I'm committed now. I placed an order with a local GoodMark dealer for the 1 piece floor, both inner and outer rocker panels, seat mounts and the left toe panel. That will get the car back in shape to the trunk. I'm still on the fence with a roto so I didn't go ahead with the full trunk floor and tail panel at this time. The dealer MAY have a lead on a roto to borrow/rent and if that comes thru, I will add more parts to the order. An added bonus is he has enough other parts to order for free shipping....

I can't believe I'm doing this...... I'll either be the envy of all my car buddies or the new town fool if it blows up.

If it's the one in your resto pics with the lifting jacks and balancing screws, I'm interested in a purchase price. Don't think I'd want to make the trip twice for a rental return.....

Anybody even ATTEMPTING a restoration of the magnitude your dealing with is a HERO in my book. Even if you totally screw it up, it's still gonna be better than before, and at least you GAVE IT A TRY. Get R done!

THANKS Jeff........it's amazing how my mind set went from "I want a solid body car to drive" to "I'm gonna rebuild this sucker"..... Kind of like the bionic man. We have the tools and technology to build it better, faster, stronger.

Mitch,
If your trunk floor was as trashed as mine ( no mounts worth attempting to hang the body from), I took and drilled two holes in the tail panel ( on the underside) and using two spacers between the rotiserrie arms and the underside of the body ( there is a lip there that you need to clear), you can hang the body from there. That way , you have a clear span to replace the trunk floor, gas tank braces and frame mounts. It also allowed me to install the tail piece unobstructed. If you have to repace the tail piece, make sure you weld in the cage nuts ( not supplied) before you make sparks. Otherwise you will be pissed at yourself. ( No, I didn't forget, right after I started fitting,but before welding!).
SHout, if you need to check , as I just finished that surgery, and the pain is still fresh in my mind.

Hey Rich, actually the last brace and mounts are good.....everything in front is gone/trash. I do need to replace the floor and tail panel but that won't be for a while. I am going to use the 1 piece trunk floor and the last brace and cage nuts are SUPPOSED to be attached already. It's plenty strong enough to hang the body with for now and I am just shooting for the cabin floor and all rockers for now.
Got a roto on the local Craigslist but he wants a bit much for it as a plain jane. I asked for better pics and a manufacturer today. He is supposed to get back with that in a day or two.
Wish I had the time and coin to go get Randy's deluxe model and go to a couple salvage yards down there. It would be a fun trip and probably rewarding for parts too, but alas, time and funds are running out quickly.

Funny when you have the money, you don't have the time and when you have the time, you don't have two pennies to rub together!
Hope you score a rotisserie, as it will really help make it easy. One of my friends who is putting together a 32 Pontiac streetrod, right next to mine, purchased a spot welder from Northern. Other than giving you a hernia, I used it to put the inner and outer rockers together, and it was sweet! Just wish it would reach all the floor braces!
Your lucky if you still have some mounting points to reference off of. It makes a big difference.

Later,
rich
