It's back from stripping, now showing the body defects in all their glory. Now the real work starts - new rear metal around the wheel openings and smoothing out all the small wrinkles a 35 year-old car accumulates. Not too bad in the photos, but up close I realized I'd forgotten and/or gotten used to many small dings and repairs.
(The top is next year's project - I'll keep it down until then!)
I just got around to posting this on October 12, so there's been some more progress. Stay tuned for the next update and more photos, hopefully soon.
UPDATE July 25, 2007 - almost!
