  The seat mounting. The important beam is here, and the seat belt mounting area. Seat belt mounting is deleted, but the beam has to go in.

  Tomorrow, I will start on the rocker area, and get that prepaired and patched. It's not as bad as the drivers side. At least, we will see... Till next time everyone. Have a happy. Here's a couple pictures of the area I'm talkin' about.

  So now, we are ready to do the last two patches on the passinger side and in the middle. The beam needs to be patched. I finished the lower cow panel, and the front floor beam and the two patches on the passinger front floor. I also primed, and I primed the drivers floor, over the seam sealer. Tomorrow is planned to finish the last two passinger side floor patches. here's some pictures of todays progress.

  The lower rocker. This area is behind the fender when the fender is re installed. Not as bad as the drivers side. I also hammered out and scraped as much as I could of the loose rusted metal inside. When I do the wheel wells in the back I'll shoot some paint inside from the back. Used the air to blow out any peices, dirt and all. Dust and a few more peices come out. All clear.

  The passinger side rocker, behind the fender skirting. Had to grind away the fender mounting bolt. I kept the special slide in nut. Maybe I can loosen it up and re use it. Not time to do that though.

Comment:
  The passingers front floor. Had to replace a little peice of the supporting beam, and the floor. A little peice for the side wall too. Still, not as bad as the drivers side. The square hole is for the fenders bolt. it's for the slide in nut.

  Desided to prime the drivers side too over the seam sealer. Nice huh?.
  So now, tomorrow if weather and everything else allows, I will continue of to the back floor. Then it's back to the shock towers covers, and undercoat the shock areas, paint, and while thats drying, it's the fenders patching. Till next time... Chow!.

  Today finished the passinger floor. Yup, the beam, the top, even a new hole for the seat mounting. And the large hole from the rust around the seat belt mount (never used)... Patched both, and now it's time to move on to the mud deviders for the car-wheel wells in the front.

  Before I started on the floor, I desided to try the new voltage regulator. Seems to work but won't know for sure until the battery is up to voltage. It seems to charge too high, but seems to be working. I'll know better when the battery is up to voltage. For, now, it stays in until it's time to tackle that...

  here's some pictures of todays progress. Be working for the rest of the week but a few days get out in the afternoon. If I'm up to it, I'll start on the mud deviders... But for now, here's pictures... Later gator.

  The new Voltage Regulator. This is the "R" model. Not the "P" Model. Seems to be working but it's charging a little too high. Battery isen't up to full charge. maybe that has a bearing on the high charge. Well see about that in a little while.

  Well, we are now in August... Not too long before it gets too cold, and the possibility of snow on the ground.. The best thing about winter?. No musketeos (or how ever it's spelled).... LOL... Anywho, I did about 20 minutes on the car today. Put on the seam sealer... If all is well tomorrow, I will prep the spring coils and certain area for primeing, and then black paint. But, for now, this afternoons work. Here's some pictures. Hopefully, toimorrow I will have the springs and the area primed painted.

  Yes folks, it's back to the front. We will be on the front now until it's completed including the patching on the fenders, and put back on. And, most likely, the color the car will be... I need to do it this way for several reasons.
01... I don't have room for parts spread out all over the place.
02... I need to check on some spacing with the fenders to the body.
03... I want to finish part of the car at a time.

  Remember, the doors will need to come off and be taken apart. Lots of parts there. Want to keep a prespective of all parts... So, here's some pictures of todays work. Little, but that's okay.. Little by little... As the Stooges once said: "Step by step, inch by inch".
