Some dam good work done right there, nice.
I'm feeling so blessed after looking at all the rust you had to deal with, here in the Nevada desert it's hot as Hell but dry.
Yea. I knew it going in. OH car but was an orginial owner so It should go to someone who can save it. My 98 Saleen came from Vegas. I flew out and drove it back. No rust just a crap
Load of dust and dirt

Fix some rust and get it in good shape

Well. I have several updates on the 85 because I went into OT to get everything in 2k
Primer. As mentioned above today was 3 months on this car. Sadly it will be going on the back burner after today because I have lots of waiting projects needing my attention. Anyway.
Doors both in 2 K primer. Also another round of blocking the driver fender and more primer
