    I know, I know, I should go back to Corvette only content.... but alas, you need to suffer to really appreciate C3 content.
    time to set the car in place

    front brackets

    assembled

    in the back, I'll use the hinge mounts to hold it

    welded

    it even holds on the back

    tonight was planning, mostly... I really don't want to work on this upside down

    so I dug out my rotisserie and got to planning


    then there was puppy play time.... Luigi's brother came for a fully puppy play date, complete with a full mudding...
    That's Luigi, he's almost white when not covered in mud

    but fun was had by all

    time to make the safety experts cringe

    the goal here is get the sand out (more of the sand), and get the grease off the underside.... this is round 1


    also do a bit of spot rust treatment

    can't see the difference but a lot better

    while the frame waits for remarriage

    for the next week or so, this gets front burner... I've got to get the floor painted so I can mount the body to the frame....
    first, remove harness

    remove frame

    put on Corvette dolly


    I also really need to start planning the details... things like power windows and such.... I think I have most of what I need to make it mobile.... but no gauges - if what I use needs dash mods, now would be a pretty good time to do it.... and on and on... very comfortable, fast, fast, car... one I could race if the vehicle I'm towing becomes incapacitated....

    I'd go with epoxy and undercoat. This is not likely to become a museum piece so I'd go with fun and functional.

    Now that the '40 is running fine (enough), the Corvette is mostly maintenance, it's time to get this running....
    and look, a thing happened

    first, some lightening


    door free




    okay, decision time... do I paint underneath or just epoxy paint and undercoat?

    you'll note both Buicks are on the plate (and I may take a suggestion I got about leaving the patina - for now - on the 50 and making it run....

    so suggestion about the underneath of the wagon....?
