Today I ground down the welds, cut the excess metal from the trunk drop offs, rust proofed everything. I tell you what, I'm happy with this.

Can't work without the proper tools, am I right, @Davedacarpainter ?

I was removing the bottle from the welding cart so I can return it to Airgas this week. It tipped over when I removed the chain and almost slammed into the garage floor. I was able to catch it in time, but the regulator got bumped and the damned flow gauge needle fell off!

Now that's a success.

I also put the doors back on just to get them out of the garage.

Thanks everyone for all the help and advice! This car is really coming along now. This will be the last work done to this car until after we move next month. I'm going to have to run wire for new outlets for the air compressor and welder there. Consequently, I'm not sure how soon after moving I'll be able to get back to work. Hopefully sooner rather than later.

Gathering parts for future use. This kit will go into the 31-spline carrier I pulled from a random 8.8 that was just chilling outside of a vehicle at a local yard. Could have been from a truck, an Explorer, no idea. Said 31-spline carrier will be going into the 8.8 that is destined to live under the grátis coupe.
