Spent some time on the interior, got the seats out, carpet and underlayment out to check for rust.

First pass shows a few small holes in the rear floor pan on the driver side, but have to spend some quality time with a grinder with a wire brush and see what the rest of the floor has to offer.

Did anybody make it to the Spokane Speed & Custom show over Father's Day weekend in Spokane, WA?

I was able to be there Fri & Sat, lots of great rigs on display, one building dedicated to strictly Tri-Fives. Lots of inspiration and ideas and some just nice rides!!

Got to meet Ian Roussel from Full Custom Garage and talk with him awhile both days. What a very nice and approachable guy! Got to meet his wife Jamie as well, she even managed to talk me into $100.00 worth of SWAG!

Added some original GM replacement parts to pantry! Last year I found a N.O.S. License plate light on ebay:

And then last week on ebay I found a pair of N.O.S. rear fender ends that arrived today...MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

Not really necessary to have at the moment, but when original GM stuff shows up, I try and grab it if it is fairly reasonable so I have the "real thing" when it's time comes.

Driver side lower fender skin rust work started. Got run out of the shop due to the heat, but did get the patch tacked in. Finish welding and then replace the crusty brace and call that one done...

Finished the welding on the backside and coated to protect from future rust. Also cut & fitted the brace section and painted the backside with the same rust treating paint as the inner fender. Now letting cure overnight. Finish installing the brace section tomorrow, then blend/smooth the welds on the front side and that fender will be done for the time being.

Taking a little break from metal work and am prepping the interior for painting with epoxy primer. Started on the package tray, that glue has to be of Alien origin!!

Spent a little time cutting the jagged extra speaker hole out to nice metal and fitting a patch. Just need to weld it in next.
