Big business trip to Canada coming this week, so I'll continue with another chapter of the story before I leave...

So, I had bought the running shell of the 2014 Prius V to use in my project. The disassembled body of the 1967 Firebird convertible was sitting beside it on jack stands in the garage, and I had promised my wife that she could get her Gen-III Prius back into the garage before the snow would fly in late Fall. Time to get to work.

There was a lot of preliminary disassembly work on the V.

I had planning to do before grabbing the Sawz-all. Fitting the body onto the chassis was going to be a jigsaw puzzle of curved surfaces against curved surfaces.

It was clear that the roof and door pillars would need to go, so off they came.

After one glorious day of Sawz-all work, I drove the chassis back into the garage.

More soon...
