well I only have my lunch break and a hour or two after work to do alittle work to this doll im by no means rushing this job but things seem to be pluggin along quite nicely.
here is the rear body panel area the 62 lapped the 99 body panel reinforcement perfectly enought to punch in some spot weld holes and firmly weld up the rear body panel, there is a few welds needed to be completed on it but for the most part its done.
this is the body panel trimmed over the 99 panel notice the frame reinforcement of the 99 below overything. went ahead and welded it up after spraying weld through primer between the panels.
had a bit of left over primer from a job so I sprayed it to cover it up right now but the back is nearly finished except for some good seam sealer
now it was onto the back deck trunk reinforcments I only have a small amount of 16 gauge for the heavier stuff I need for this car
bent up my brakets with my little trusty sheet metal break
hole punched my spot weld holes, weld through primed them down both sides and welded it up
solid as ever!
for something crazy here is the planned area were Im putting my hydro pump! this is just moked up of course, im going to make it remote fill and the dumps wont be located on the pump. The reason behind all this is to keep the trunk as open as much as possible and just to be differnt as well, this car isnt going to be doing any hoppin just lift and lay.
also note this isnt the actually pump ill be using either
and there is room for the pump to be there as well I measured it all out once I box the A piller in I will make a mount setup to mount he pump where its removable from behind the wheel house.
