Can all the engine maintenance items be reached under the Ghia's tiny little hood? Maybe make it a flip-front if not?

I can drive it around the parking lot, but I need to do some more welding. I didnít do anything to the steering column.
I figured that out on my own last night.

That's real progress. I have a car that's up on jack stands and a broken jack (for comparison purposes).

It will be interesting to see what you do with the wheel arches and rocker panels. Can you work in a three-inch drop in the front once the arches are cut out?

Trimmed the pinch weld off. Then welded it back together.

Mocking up doors
