      Did some sandblasting on the door jambs, window openings, dash, firewall, etc. Then I decided it's time to finish the floor, so I put the body on it's side to make that easier.

            Just saw this Jim, great job!!!

            We are a steel fabricator in Chandler, I could have made some of the parts you needed, looks like too late though haha. Let me know what parts you may need, we have lots here in Phoenix area.

              Not really too many parts I need fabricated that I can't hammer out here, but thanks! Work continues on the floor. Weekend had lots of robot stuff going on..but that's mostly over for about a month, so back to work. I have been messing with the floor, added the drive shaft hoop, cleaning up welds, moved the gas tank supports, re did the shackle mounts, cleaned off all the undercoating, etc. Almost ready to start bondoing. but I might also add some "torque boxes" to tie the front subframe to the rockers, as well as the front cage mount on the floor.

                  The car is gonna sit way up high....it's not going to have any carpet inside....I want it to look like an original car that's only a few years old, that got stripped and turned into a race car. The floor will be quite visible, and folks are gonna look at it, both on top and from below.

                      It turns out that it's not only a race car, it's also a show car. I expect it will end up in more car shows, than races.

                        I don't see anything wrong with smoothing up the floors. You're doing it right. I worked on a car once that someone had done that, problem was they didn't do all the repairs they should have. The guy paid to have floors done, and less than 6 months later the car was getting frame rails, quarters, etc. What a mess

                            was wondering if you were going to add rail connectors or something...

                            Looking good!

                              There will be sill bars on the cage, connecting the front and rear hoops just above the floor.

                                Nothing better than a nicely finished bottom.

                                Great progress. It's with considerable anticipation that many of us look forward to your first track video.
