Found a gentleman close to my house who only does metal work that my brother in law recommended. Has a great machine shop. Problem is he's retired and goes south every winter. I had contacted him last year and was able to get in this fall. He made great progress but unfortunately is leaving to go south this week and will need to finish in the the spring. So the car will stay on the rotisserie over the winter. When we got the body off the frame we found who ever did the work in the eighties did a quick and dirty job. He covered up and held together the metal using tin sheets and rivets.The car has great sheet metal above the floor but the floor is Swiss cheese. The front fenders have the usual Clipper rust above the side grills. Fortunately I have two rust free fenders from a parts car. The first picture is when the body was separated from the chasis before we got it on the rotisserie.
