Thanks guys,Got some stuff done yesterday. Got the floors almost 100% welded off and ground down. Also made a trans mount and got the motor mounts about half done. I had no power today so I wasn't able to do anything as the generator won't run the welder and compressor.

I think those door pads look good, but would look better with a border rolled around them?

This weekend I filled all the holes in the fire wall, and finished my motor mounts. Then I mounted my clutch and brake pedal along with the booster and master cylinder. I does not sound like alot but I have alot of hours into those few things lol.

Not that my opinion really matters but I have seen a few of these cars at local shows and have always had a soft spot for them. I would really like to see it stay a 4 door, it just seems like everyone makes them a 2 door. You also don't see a whole lot of 4 door hot rods. But no matter where the build goes I'm subscribed lol.
