We have two 1966 Convertibles that we are restoring for two different customers.

This one is a 6 and had been sitting in a barn in Michigan for over twenty years. This is how it was dropped off in the middle of the night on the way back from Michigan. He started taking it apart along time ago and brought some of the sheetmetal home before.





The second one is a V8 and has been in the family a long time and was under a house in North Carolina for over 20 years. This one came in on a roll back.





At first they don't look bad but the inner rockers and floors have a lot of rust in both.

We have had the Michigan car longer so I will start with this one.

We removed the drive train and mounted it on a cart and had it sand blasted after scraping as much of the undercoat off as we could. This is what we are starting with

Lining up the inner rocker and making sure it is level
