wow

It looks like another $25,000 before it will be close to ready.
The shipping will eat your lunch on parts.

Are you sure about this project?

That is a lot of rust to try and tackle.

I would suggest that you and try and see if you can purchase a mini sand blaster that has a brush head on the end of the hose and will vacuum up the sand particles at the same time. It would limit the amount of waste and would aide in the compartmentalization of your rust blasting to one area while protecting the paint job.

Have fun and good luck.

I admire your determination with this project and you could do a realistic assesment on the body as far as frame rails front cowl etc + what you can visually see. If all looks good sandblast it all and see whats left. Its so easy to be burnt on hard projects and many on this forum can testify to that.

If it turns out the body isnt salvagable dont despair, you have a full drive train hood, panels, glass and all the bits to rebuild a good rolling body Mach 1 for example.these can still be had for good money.
Never be scared to cut your losses there are always options .

Hope it goes well and look foreward to see your progress.

I did not realise how much of a challenge!! I know parts shipping costs can be a killer but you have to offset that against making the (body) part from scratch.
Maybe a family member is a coach-builder and this is a walk in the park for him. If not, get quotes and compare with shipping - might not be as bad as we all think.

Wow - that sea air is killer!

You were not joking about wanting to build a car from scratch.

It can be done, it's just work. :)

Take it a step at a time, piece by piece. Keep us updated and we will do our best to keep you encouraged and motivated.

All the best.

Looks like you are doing it right. Although I see a few challenge areas I have seen cars in much worse condition. What's your plan of attack for repairing the rust damage to the inner structural pieces?

Nice work....looking forward to seeing more pictures of the restoration work.

I plan to rebuild it piece by piece (CO welding)
I also thinking of option to add structure reinforcement and supports more then the original.
