been out this morning, took off the bumpers, stripped out the carpets & removed all the sound deadening/underseal of the floorpans.

It aint too bad, really needs the body off to do a proper proper job but its not gonna be a minter so aint worth that much grief......i plan to cut some patches into the pan, replace/repair the channel bottoms & see where i end up. Wink

Popped a good battery on it but the starters w*nkered so no thrummy beetle noises im afraid No
