This is the extent of the bodywork needed. Nothing but door dings. If they were all this easy I wouldn't have retired!

Made progress today. Both sides sanded. Next is the top but I needed to get the sides done while it was on the lift. I'm too old for that bending down crap.

All sanded except for the hood. It has to be stripped due to previous repairs. I will take a break for the holiday and then get it in primer this weekend.

Gotta do something inside with those 4' snow drifts outside, right Chris? I'll have to get some tips from you whenever I start prepping my 66. Happy Thanksgiving buddy!
Yeah the only thing I'm shoveling here is sunshine! LOL. No problem on the tips! Advice is free! Happy Thanksgiving to you too Craig!

Wow. For having the 300 for just one month, you're moving fast.
Looks like it was a really solid car to begin with, not like most junk we find here in the rust belt.
I just know this car is gonna look great when you're done.
