    More progress to report. Most of the panel mateing will take place at the factory seams. A small amount of butt welding will be necessary on each quarter panel.

    The frame rails are boxed on the inside, drilled and welded front and rear of the seam and then triple welded on the seam.

    Welding will start today.

    My dad drilled small holes at the bottom of my '61 so the water can escape

    Will, nice to see the progress, you must feel great about finding the donor.

    I am guessing even as skilled as your guys are they must be happy to be able to patching the work in and not have to fabricate it.

    The bodywork is moving along at warp (no pun intended) speed.

    I had a chance to grab a drop top '61 fury . The car was on eBay a few years back had a 361 ps,pb and it had no car cancer at all the buy now price was $6800.00 . I am finding more on my hard top its getting to were I am getting fed up with my hard top . There are times I wish never bought the car . When I was looking for another 1 I should of put in the ad I prefer the car came from Arizona , New Mexico a dry state with no humidity.
