  The metal repair continues as the quarter skins and two piece trunk floor are in. Considering the fact this car was bought new and remained in the Madison/Royal Oak, Michigan area until '94, i'm feeling very fortunate at the relatively small amount of rust in the the cowl, front windshield and rear SE window plug channels.
  This afternoon i'm taking the SE finish panel as well as headlight bezels so they can have those pieces available for test fitting purposes. We don' need no stinking gaps!! :nono: ;)

 :cheers:

   Seems odd that where the quarter windows are is a gray color yet the door is purple. 1970 quality control? :dunno:

Thanks folks :), no blasting so far as i've been told, i believe the plan is to chemically strip the body once on a rotisserie...

Some test fitting of the rear trim panel and rear valence has taken place and a light protective coat of primer is on just to protect things  :)

Looks like all the panels are lining up very nicely! :2thumbs:  I still have to find a rear valance with cutouts and make sure things fit as they should. :-\
