About the same shape mine was when I first got it. Firewall, and front suspension looks 10 times better now that you cleaned, and painted it. Coming along nicely. Are you going to buy replacement floor pans, or just weld a piece of metal in its place?

That picture with the hole in the floor is the worst rust spot in the whole car, there are a few holes about the size of a nickel that im just going to fiberglass over, I havent decided yet if im going to weld a peice in over that big hole or just lay some fiberglass over it. There is some minor rust where the floor board meets the firewall too, but all in all the floor is in good shape for where the car is from and how old it is.
see that's why I give people like you and supernova mad props cause you both started out with a car that looks like total piece of shit! but work at it and dedication to come along way, I want to do somthing like that maybe when I'm with supernova I'll have some spare cash and get a scrap car out there and see how much we can do to it before I have to leave ~shrugs~

hey what about me? haha I know my car doesnt look that bad on the outside in the primer, but you should see the front floors that Im going to be cutting out and having another set of southern floors welded in, the frame-off that Im going to be doing, and everything else that cost money. ;D
