Default Many hours of labor

replaced the whole subrail and subrail extensions, was mostly rotted and covered by pieces of sheet metal, wheel boards were also homemade sheet metal and replaced, so many wrong and different nuts and bolts replaced by all stainless steel. The extension subrails had dirt under them from I wonder how many years ago.

It's nice to see A come back. Left alone for a few more years, maybe no one would have invested to time. restoration is an act of love. Bill

rear fender panels were made and welded to cover up rot, look carefully at subrail where you can see sheet metal made that was welded on to old rotted subrail

Isn't it "fun" to spend all that effort to undo someone else's crappy "restoration". But you will have the satisfaction of making it right. Good job!

Wow! Nice work, you'll enjoy it more when the car is on the road and you can enjoy the touring knowing you've done the work to get it that far.

Don't worry about judging or points, I sure don't.
Driving and enjoying is what matters.
It sure as heck looks good to me.
Good work.
Enjoy the ride.
