Victim preparation - my first AeroMetro.

Hi Y'all,
This thread should be moved out of introductions, don't you think?

More pics & my Metro project is rolling along. Literally, but with a slight setback.

I brought my rust free Metro 2dr home and began stripping it. On the way home I discovered that somebody, maybe me, left the hood unsecured and you guessed it WHAP! I now need a Metro hood. I guess that I could borrow my '92 Vert's hood for a few days.

I remembered that I had some aerodynamic plastic headlights stored at the old farm house. I have to go swap doors with my '91 Swift GT that has shaved handles and I will fabricate some low drag mirrors next week. I picked up a clutch kit and am sorting transmissions today, yes on Easter. Now that it is in my garage, I'll start the body work, then get on with the engine rebuild next week. The body work is minimal, thank goodness.

It looks like I will have to invest in a MIG welder VERY SOON to install the lower radiator support.
