Doesn't get much more basic than this - got a couple hours in the garage today and mounted the rear floor/wheelwell section to the dolly. Added a simple brace and tacked the upper quarter section to it - this is where the 3" horizontal section was removed. Eventually the floor will get replaced but for now it provides a semi-square baseline for reconstruction of the rest of the body.

Reminds me of the story of the guy that cut up a '32 Ford Coupe and took it home to Europe in suit cases.

What do you use to make all the cuts in the sheet metal?

This is gonna be another world class zz-build.

Thanks Bob.
Most cuts are made with a 5" thin zip- cut wheel on a little Makita right angle grinder. Hard to access places I do with a sabre saw though I have a tough time making straight cuts with it not to mention trying to keep it from jumping out of the cut....:mad:

I wouldn't even think about starting there. You obviously can see things most people can't. Me being at the top of that list.

Tacked on the rear half of the roof, nice not to need relief cuts, I think I fluked on cutting it in the right spot. [S
I'll fit the corners of the side and rear windows later - some tweaking may be needed once more of the body comes together.

I'm shortening the body 5" so it comes out of the rockers - tacked them back together and re-attached the cowl sides to the main cowl piece. Lots more splicing and fitting to do on the front edges of the cowl due to the 3" section being removed. I may end up building a custom removable dash, but at this stage, it's still holding the cowl together.

All of the sudden I feel like a hack.
