Good luck with it, Dale! What part of the state are you from?

Out in the cornfields northwest of Brownsburg
HAHA... I'm out in the corn fields, too. Wouldn't have it any other way. If you need a GM cowl hood, let me know. Needs some work, but no rust.

I love it out here.. now my wife would prefer closer to town, but I authorized the purchase of appliances she wanted. She's at bay for a few years.
I'll have to get with you on hood when I purchase sheet metal, within the next month or so.

Ok, I finally got the jig complete and painted. Today I started the disassembly process. A lot of the bolts are rusted on nose like grill screws headlights ect. I realized I probably wouldn't get the pieces off W/o breaking the good ones, so off it comes as one..The fender bolts all came off no proble. The bottom of fender bolt was rusted through.

Ok today I continued the disassembly cowl area, and interior.. I'm thinking this trunk floor is one of the worst. PO used straps to hold up fuel tank.
I found this B 4 under the rear seat back. Also 4 on the radiator core support. Assembly process numbers.??
Any thoughts.?

Looks like Fred Flinstone has been in the car..
I'm thinking I have the true definition of "Rust Bucket"

Questions.
Anyone have advise on instrument and wires removal hints advice so it's not a Charlie Foxtrot with all the wires.?

Anyone taken the subframe out with the engine still attached .?

What are you doing to protect the integrity of the VIN tag and hidden stamped partials?

The dash will be remove and remounted on new dash. Lock n key until then. As far as the hidden stamps not sure. Any advice would be most appreciated

Can you block the body up high enough to get the jig under it? Be a lot easier to lift the jig up to the body and then lower the whole assembly once the body is bolted to it.
