Simply Amazing!  It was fun watching the progress and seeing it from beginning to end. Please send us some interior photos as well.

Really neat to see another one fixed and back on the road. Did you paint it yourself? Looking at the dates it's seems to have been done in pretty short order. My projects tend to take years! Good job! and very brave to do POR 15 with no gloves on! I used my 62 in my daughter's wedding too

Nop...I did'n paint it myself.  I can clean rusted parts (using the vinegar and water method bytway) , I can put por-15 or chassis black. But...I leave the body work, prep, primer, paint and polish to "Ricardo". (That's His real name...bytway).
This guy is really a pro. Stripped and repeired the intire car. Welded sheatmetal and floor patch...and sealed the surface before  finishig the body panels. We stucked the the proyect day and nite,  because of the wedding dead line. Chassis stayed on. We didn't do a frame off. That's  two months time saved. (Frame is fairly Ok...bytwy).  The hardest part of the job, was puting back the door hardware and windows. Setting up this parts proper...is...a Pita.  I still need to make some small adjusmets for proper alignment of seams, rubber seals and trim.
Thaks All for your coments. 
Need to restore the White Side Wall on the original Firestone spare tire...it's stained and I don't want to damage the surface.  Is there some paint or material that I can use?
