Eliminator Downunder

From dusty barn find to daily driver, it seems our cars are never really done. This is the place to share your progress on your project car. We will celebrate your victories and commiserate over your tragedies. But most of all this is a great place to learn!

Love that Falcon. I've seen ONE here in the states, and fell in love. Looked just like the beautiful black 1st Mad Max, black, zoomie pipes, black wwagon wheels and a tan interior. Didn't have the supercharger poking through the hood, but who cars.

Great Falcon.

Wow, that's a lot of work! But it's going to look awesome when you are through :-)

Does scare me a bit to see it like that though ~ I'm sure that is what mine looks like under the surface, if not worse! >.<

Thanks Steven, the floor gives the body a lot of strength so that was the starting point.
The rear qtrs will be next, I'm looking forward to that!
