Thanks man. My brother was here today and he said they I sure had ripped the car apart. He said that I was crazy to tear down a running and driving car. He said that he would have quick patched then undercoated. That just isn't my style. I would know it's there and that would just bum me out until I did what I've done. Find the bad no matter where or what and repair or replace. It will be worth it in the end... whenever that is lol.

If I had a fastback I'd be the same way lol.  As it is...my car's about going fast first, and looking good second.  I'd use a stop sign for the floorboard if it meant I'd be able to throw $200 more at the engine/suspension lol.  I mean, hell...what do I need sheetmetal for?  The cage and subframes will hold everything together =D.

I feel for you there. I have done several cars to the degree you are doing yours. The most recent is my 63 Fairlane. It has taught me 1 valuable lesson...I should have bought a Fox body!

It will be worth it in the end to be "different", bot what a PITA journey!

Hang in there, it will get better soon.

I'm guess I'm different, I want it to look good first and run good as a by-product. I'll do the body and leave the fast stuff to the more knowledgable.

My $0.02:

1) Make it stop
2) Make it go
3) Make it look good

Little did I know that item "2" should really be 2a, 2b, 2c, 2d, etc.

Going to start addressing #3 in the fall when I start taking auto body classes.  I figure there's enough "wrong" with it to cover just about every class topic!  Grin

I wanted it to look good first. When it comes together it will have a dog of a motor in it until I can build what I want for it. I just want to get it back to running and driving with the body finished.

If the car in your avatar is it, then you have accomplished what I'm trying.

Ditto.  That's very nice work.  I'm not looking for show-quality, but I 'd like to have something that looks nice (at least from behind, since that's the view everyone will have!)  Grin

stock hood....mopar six pack hood scoop Cheesy

And thank you. It took a while to get it to that point. It was in the same condition as your fastback when I started with it. Trust me, Its worth it in the end.

Did you cut it out underneath. I plan to use a stock hood and lay the 67 shelby scoop on it. Then cut it out underneath so that it's functional. The scoop can be had for 85 bucks. So it will be worth it.

I can understand this completely.  Had I a fastback, and a budget that only allowed one before the other...I'm not sure which way I'd go.  I can think that way because most of our cars down here aren't in the poor state yours is.  If I had your car and the above mentioned budget...I'd be doing exactly what you are =D.

My car seems to have a little bit of rust in some odd places (rear drip rail moulding is the worst)....but that stuff will be fixed with the paint.  Other than that it seems pretty solid, luckily.

I cut it out...I will post up a couple of pics. Smiley It was easy cutting up the hood...unfortunately the winter has been hard on the hood scoop which is plastic, so it has cracked....but I now have a fiberglass one downstairs awaiting a fresh coat of paint and its about 3/4 of an inch taller...so I now have room to adjust somethings later on down the road.
