No sir, those pictures are of a street car I'm building with my oldest daughter. I was only highlighting the removable k member. But in some odd way, I think you knew the answer to that.

I think I may have found a rotisserie to borrow, so today I went and bought some paint degrease prep and some seal primer just in case we get lucky this weekend. Tomorrow I'm going to blast some more suspension parts so I have something to work on if everything else fails miserably.

Got a few more pieces blasted and washed today for powder. I picked up the old rusty rotisserie that may or may not work, we'll see tomorrow.

Had some help today for the heavy lifting. Today started out a little shakey as I busted the windshield as soon as I started to cut the sealant, luckily I broke it and not the rear glass which is harder to come by and 3 times the $$$. We spent most of the day cleaning grease, grime and rubber sealant but I wanted it to be prepped and ready for media blasting. I cannot for the life of me get the lower hinge pin out of the drivers door, just zero room to swing a hammer so I gave up and will get it tomorrow morning.
Here it is coming back into the daylight, cleaning sealant, and just a little suprise hidden in the passenger quarter panel.

Next we tackled the fitting of the borrowed rotisserie that had been stored outside so all the fasteners were locked up plus some missing parts. We were however successful after a bout with penetrant and a sawzall. More cleaning and grinding then we load it up for blasting which will commence tomorrow.

It's a sickness! I love doing this, and I always have something torn down. My last two projects before this were a 1978 Pantera 24 re-do and a 900hp 22mpg 2005 GTO I built for Hot Rod Drag Week.

Whew, what a weekend. Started out early this morning and got the car stripped, spent a long time cleaning it out to no avail, this thing will have sand pouring out for a while. Had to move on and get the epoxy sealer on but all in all had a very productive weekend.

This afternoon I'm converting "back to a 12 bolt".
