A little more movement towards the ultimate goal... fresh AMD quarters & minor metal work/rust repair around trunk opening & along drip rails. Had a new striker panel/door jamb section patched in on passenger side. Section around front windshield opening (A-pillars) & trunk lid in progress now.

Not much new going on here... got the car back home this past week for a bit while I do some grunt work stripping the engine bay down. Body man needed the space for another car for a minute. But it feels good to see that the main fuselage is squared up & the heavy lifting on rust repair is done!

Looking good! The rust repair is tedious - but has to be done right. Can't wait until I am through with that part. Scott.
