      Jim, the hook you don't remember and the plate to its right are for the spare tyre hold down. Hook goes through the plate and then through the hole in the center of the trunk.

      Oh, it's looking good.

          Wow! All that work with a drill and a wire brush! You are a patient man!

          I bought a blast cabinet for that purpose. I do subscribe to the theory that every project deserves new tools, and this is one BIG project!

              Looks great Jim! None of that rust is surprising. All is repairable!

                    Boy I wish I could, but I doubt she'll will be ready....however, my wife has informed me, since 2012 will be our 40th wedding anniversary, and since TRials is going to be at Niagara Falls, we WILL be there, just driving her Chrysler 200 !

                        Hi Jim.... Finally checked out your blog today. awesome work you're doing, I especially like the brake lines and I'm wondering how expensive they are. Also, I like the braided covers (the only issue I wondered about could be corrosiveness due to holding moisture, but that is NOT a problem with cunifer...correct?).

                              Aw! Jim you are getting ahead of me I am going to have to work harder! In a few days all the tin work on my tub will done then it is Por_15 time. Your body man is doing a great job. The only body man I have is me!
                              Just take your time on the engine issue. I did a lot of research before I made my decision. Being the anal engineer type guy (actually I am a geologist) I set up a matrix of cost, work involved, fun factor,etc for all the different options for the drive train and it helped me to make a decision. Doing it this way forces you to look at all the issues and in the end you know what you want and the cost involved in terms of money, time and the sweat of your brow.

                              Cheers
