Some progress during these weeks...

Repaired door panels, loudspeaker grills and ash trays and such...





Door hinges are bad, so new bushings and pins from GM cars made things happen... These are from my previous project cars. Recycling is the word of today...



Tail lights had some issues, so I took a pair from my parts cars. Cleaned and painted those.



This "repaired" side moulding did not look good... I know that body needs some paint...  ::)



...so I took one from my parts car. (Here in Finland we have only two -80 Eagle Sport Wagons. Both are in my garage)



Did not remember that co-drivers seat had a lot of rust underneath, so sandblasting and matt black makes wonders.



New interior is coming nicely, but slowly... Almost every part is bad or broken... OH, I hate old cars....  :banghead:

Nothing much happened...

Have been busy with my Concord... It was not just a crash repair...

There were some rust issues and a lot of rust repair issues... Some on had done not so good repairs, so they must go.



Just now my Cherokee is getting new brakes.... after that I can ger car lift free for "silver beast"  :hello2:

wow
I thought I was daring when I put in a new floor pan at the driver's feet, and then new rockers...

New sills are on the way... My friend has a long sheet metal bending machine, but he is a very busy metal shaper, so I have to wait.
 I had a pair of used Hornet sills, but they had some rust issues... But they were good solid template.
 I found out that they are wedge shaped... Both high and width... I´d never guessed...

Waiting is the hardest part...
