A good amount of progress today, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel for floor pans. Floor support is welded in and the driver side floor pan is fit and partially welded in. Just need to weld the perimeter of the pan then weld back in the lower half of the torque box and seat riser and floors will be done!

Floors are officially done! Lower half of the torque box is welded back in place and parking brake cable brackets are welded back on. Next I will be starting work on doing a patch on the passenger rear quarter panel behind the tire.

Floors are now painted and got the rust cut out of the passenger rear quarter panel and patched up. Car is ready to take back to the house to pull the windshield and start on the cowl panel removal.

I’m going to trailer it back to my house, get it out of the weather and back into my garage but unfortunately the metal work isn’t quite done. Cowl vents have to be addressed so that’s the next step

Been a while since I've gotten my hands dirty with the car. I got it trailered back to my house out of the elements finally. Who can guess what fun I'm getting ready to have?!? Any words of wisdom from those who have repaired cowl panels before I dive into mine?

Got the cowl panel puled today to reveal the surprises underneath. Not as bad as I thought but also didn't disappoint with the driver side vent rusted out. Looks like I just need the patch panel and not a full replacement.
