    well folks just want to show all of you how the firewall came out. The welder showed up on Tuesday of last week and it took him 30 min. to get it all done. I am also showing a photo of the vent hole set up needed for the driver side vent. A/C cars don't have these so if you want to do the conversion right you should have a functioning vent on the drivers side. well here are the shots... Enjoy!

    at it again!!

    Ok kid's I have been at the ol project again! I have fully cleaned and undercoated the underside of the body (photos this weekend). I am hoping that on Saturday my buddy Tony will come over and paint the firewall. Once this is done I will take some photos and get ready to drop the body back down onto the frame. :). Then it will be time to bother the engine builder for my engine (he has had it since April sometime).

    Ok folk's could not wait to show you the underside of the ol Ranchero. Here She is cleaned up and undercoated. Many like to paint the underneath of the car when doing a frame off. But while not rusty this floor has been pretty bent up in its lifetime and painting it would have been a waste.
