Thanks gang.
It was a lot rougher of a winter then I let on dutch.
Mostly people that didn't like seeing me suffer. I think it was well meant but misguided. Lol
People don't always know what to say to people that are ill. And what they do say doesn't always come out right.
I get it, but thats just not my nature.
Anyway. I am still here.😎
Low Budget. You and I are of the same mindset.
I just fell hard for this car from the first time i saw a picture. And as you all know its just like me to drag home something most wouldn't give a second thought to.
My thought was that i could part it out and make some money. Now that i have a new, clear, clean , current Michigan title for her its full steam ahead.
Stay tuned car fans........
Torchie

Keep on keeping on......

Thanks Bob.
Mrs T came out into the shop and was looking at the Caddy......
Mrs.T......"Why do all the cars you buy have floor rust."
Me..... "With my budget you are lucky they have wheels.".....
After I worked on the Dodge I turned my attention to old Ratty.
They don't make replacement rockers for this car. Regardless of what you may see. These are a terrible fit. And yes they need a good blasting.
They stick way out past the outer edge of the door.
They don't have the rear door bulge extensions, either.
And as can be seen in the pics. Yes there is floor work to do.
More slicing and dicing for Torchie.
Remember. The plan is to leave the outside just as it is. The only repair work will be to make things structuraly sound. Like the rockers and the floor.
Come up with a cheap interior for it and then see where we go from there.
Keep on keeping on.......
Torchie

My buddy bought a full set of seats off of marketplace for his wagon. Dirt cheap and they look good. Power and heated. They fit very good .

Keep in trucking. This is so cool!
