Yes, much nicer. Looks less like an old Dodge now.

Clean-up weekend while I wait for supplies to arrive. I do love it when the morning sun shines on the car.

Nothing very photogenic lately. There is no way to make door glass removal look pretty.



Working on final prep for the body lift-off later this month. The garage is going to be cramped again while I have the media blaster going. I need to strip off the paint to see what bodywork needs to be done.

Finished protecting the windshield inside and out while I could still stand inside the body. One step closer to lifting the body off again.

After helping my wife in the garden for Mother's Day, she said I could go play in the garage until dinner.




Got everything up in the air again. Next weekend I'll finish moving the body off of the chassis so I can start stripping paint and making additional mods.

I'd say I used the time well.

Finally got out in the garage today. (Long story.) Body is back off of the chassis so I can start the final prep for mods and welding.





My little garage is crammed full again, but at least things are where I need them to be to continue on the project.

So, do you believe you'll be able to get it running this year?

That's still the goal. It's going to depend on other things in life cooperating.

I made the cut-out in the Firebird firewall larger today so that I would have more room for the ductwork under the windshield. The A/C ducting will be a bit chaotic under the dash as it is, so I wanted as much room to work as possible. There's also a lot of electronics that needs to go under there...




One side benefit is that the three inch deep glove box will now be much, much deeper!
