    HE'S ALIVE!!!

    Welcome back. Way to go on getting your own restoration business going. Looking forward to the completed pics that will no doubt be used as advertising for new customers.

    And thats one of the reasons I hate neighbors, always bitching or concerned about that which should not concern them.

    Okay, time to get this build back on track.

    Wagon put back onto its side and the underside needs prepping for paint.

    Its covered in oil and grease and generally filthy. So out with the solvents and a few hours scrubbing!

    Heres the before and after photos

    BEFORE


    AFTER


    BEFORE


    AFTER



    Here's a stick in the spokes. When I replaced the inner rockers, there were a few rusty thin areas on the outer rockers that were a concern. Here's a spot



    So I'm going to replace them both and then paint the entire underside green at the same time.

    Andy.

    If it's not leaking, then you've got a problem. That's how it works with old cars.

    Or you're just too lazy to fix the problem, that's a common one.

    Hi all.
    Really got to apologise to everyone. My poor wagon has been sat waiting in my garage for ....... well, months and months. No excuses really, except that life gets in the way. But, no more. This has got to be be completed.
    No way is this going to be an abandoned project.
    Im closing my workshop doors for a while so I can get this back on track.
    So tomorrow is restart time.
    Plans are to fabricate new outer rocker panels (inside ones were fabricated ages ago and welded in.
    Then paint the entire underside and put it back on its chassis.
    Weld up the hole in the firewall where the scaffold pipe went through for the tilter, move the wagon down to my workshop on the lift and move my camaro into my home workshop.
    No excuses then.

    Really sorry I have let everybody down, but time for change.

    Not even sure if the old crowd is still on here now!

    Anyway, loads of photos to come......

    Andy.

    Good to see you back Andy! Been wondering what the status of the project was. And stop in every now and again even if you get nothing done on the box so we know your still out there.
