66 SD Convertible Restoration


Could you imagine the time when all these replacement panels were not made ?

Some of my panels were actually made on this side of the ocean.

Starting fresh will make it all worthwhile !

Getting close to being able to build a complete car from AMD pieces. I think inner roof structure for a hardtop is one of the only things they dont make. Keep it up. Hard not to use aftermarket pieces when theyre so nice and clean! Ill be following suit with the Beaumont this winter I think.

 Yeah but it's a multi purpose spring compressor!

And at 2023 prices it's only $25,000? I thought it would be more.

You are very fortunate to find a body guy who will tackle this type of rust repair. They are few and far between!

 he has done so many he has it down pat now. I would not have started this one if he was not available. He would rather do this then do the finish body work but with that said he has mention he may finish it right off. The B body cars I have dont need all that this one does. I would like him to do the floor patches and trunk pan repairs in the B bodies. With that done I can make them road worthy.

I love the work you are doing and your dedication to the car hobby! I quite like the way you supported the body to keep the underside open to roll the frame in place. We are still doing our first car. It's soon ready for the rotisserie and I was wondering how we were going to get it off the stands we have now and onto the rotisserie. Your support structure would work perfectly! Thanks for sharing your photos!

Muncie 4 speed? If so, remember to do the correct hole in the firewall for the speedometer cable.
