    Passenger side



    A "kill 2 birds 1 stone" shot... The rear qtr panel and the passenger front floor pan....





    As you can see I have my work cut out for me, I will most definitely be picking your minds for help dealing with this as it is my first project this deep!! The opposite side of each pic is just about the same, cancer and dead...

    Hope you enjoyed the pics, I know I love seeing pics

    How much did it cost you to raise that thing from the bottom of the ocean?

    That's pretty rough. I've cut up tubs that were tons better than that, but I'm spoiled out here in CA.

    I suggest you skip the sand blast and go right to nuclear blast.

    Yeah, this is going to be interesting but I think since I am not going for a car show quality rebuild I should be able to get done what I need. I am going to do my best to get the best looking floors back together, there is one question I do have. In pic 3 you can possibly see (if not I can take another shot) the fact that the brace is cracked (where the body is connected to the frame). Is that piece replaceable or do I just have to rebuild it?

    A.J.,
    Sorry I am not sure about the brace. Personally I would just rebuild it. You may want to think about making it a bit stronger (bracing) due to the amount of rust.
    I luckily did not have to deal with that much rust.
