J-Rod removed the last of the factory sound proofing off the floor.

So far everything seems to fit good.

Wow, you guys are doing an amazing amount of work on this restoration. And it’s just awesome that your taking the time to post your play by play steps to let the rest of us vicariously live through it!

Dave at Futofab Will be able to use your car as the poster child for 2/3rds of the panels he sells for a 510 - it’s awesome that we get to just see it all come together like this.

Keep it coming, we are certainly enjoying the build.

Progress is slow, but it is progress non the less.

Work continues...

Rear Quarters are welded in

Image

Rear licence plate panel prep. Trunk latch and jack handle clips had to be taken off the old panel and welded onto the new panel

Image

Fitting Rear licence plate panel

Image

The trunk gutter on the new panel is quite a bit more substantial than the original.

Image

The area where the tail lights meet the quarter panels was a bit of a challenge.

Image

Got it to fit pretty good in the end. The holes for the licence plate lights also will meet to be drilled in.

Image

We also fit front fenders on. Looks like a 510!

Image

Started stitch welding the engine bay.

Well, Dave and you should both be happy with the new metal. Nice that it is thicker than stock. Gaps look good

Mark,
Thanks for the walk-a-round video. It's always good to see panels going on and a project moving forward.

Good job!
