Today's progress. I finished welding in and grinding the rear quarter, seam sealed the rear quarter, both front quarters, and some of the interior floor. Then I began rust removal on the rear driver window. All in all, a pretty good day!

Thanks! Just a note for clarification to everyone: any paint or primer you see going on in the next month if just temporary so I can take the car to my 30th high school reunion in July. I drove this very car from 1986-1993. There is MAJOR pitting around all the edges, and likely more metal to cut out after July 21st. The plan is to do a full frame off this winter once all the new sheet metal is roughed in. I just don't want people to think I'm deliberately cutting corners on the metal prep. I'm under a huge deadline right now.

A few more.. oh, and we listened to the Indy 500, of course! And, I learned how to align the trunk lid and made my gaps more centered front to back AND side to side!
