Yes......I'm familiar with original plans that look nothing like the final plans
I "SHOULD" be done with the body/paint work by late Oct.
Wow, that fast really ! I'm just slow, my engine project proves that.
Then comes the fun part - REASSEMBLY. I took photos of all the window mechanisms,and weather stripping for future reference.
If the worse does come up,I can always put it back together at home.
I'm a firm believer in photos when you take something apart. I have a camera, computer and 22" monitor in the garage so I can look at the photos while re-assembling things.
Be sure to update us with anything new that gets done.

I edited my post above and removed the 2 really dark floor picture and replaced them by a new clear one(DSCN0165(1).jpg)
someone told me that i could use smooth fiberglass on the underside seam, to make it looks better(i used a lap weld). Wondering if thats a good idea?.
Right now, i used seam sealer, just like the upperside of the floor.
