I ended up having this afternoon off so the car got picked up today and delivered to get media blasted. It will be blasted under, over, in and out and will be shot in gray primer before I pick it up. It will be ready in about 4-5 weeks.

You are on your way now Greg. Are they blasting the fenders as well?

No, the more I looked at the fenders, hood and decklid, the more I don't think they need it. You can check 'em out and we can always do those later if we need to.

I got the body back on the pan yesterday but ran out of time to post pics. Dann will be taking care of the bodywork so this will be the last update for a little while. He needs to get a couple of other projects out of the way before he can start on it. This actually works out fine so I can focus on Crusty and get it on the road.

And here's what I'm excited about. This is the first time I've looked inside the car and not seen a bunch of RUST!!

I doubt it. I guess anything's possible but this a major project. I plan on taking my time and doing it right. But, we'll see how fast things move once it's at Dann's place.
