It is a work in progress, not all the dark spots are rust. The car spent its whole life in Georgia; the only truly rusty section is the floor pans.

Update September 2, 2001

Gary, I'm sending you some updated pictures of my car. The car isn't quit as far along as I would like it to be, but I now have all the parts that I need and the floor pans get welded in this week end and then it is off to the painter.

Then things will progress a little faster.

PS, the car is totally been beaded. They look so good all natural and such. Like a new baby coming into the world for the first time.

Thanks, Dennis!

Good luck with the restoration!

Love the Hemi touch!

Your '65 will pop some eyes when finished! :-)

RE update: Lookin' good! Yeah, they seem to always take more time to finish than originally forecasted. I personally wish the "new baby" Mopars coming into the world from DChrysler looked as good as the 1965's. :-)
