You're a hero, Jamie! LOL.

Wow, what a turnout. Nothing like cheerleaders on a project. Definitely helps to motivate.

There is something about taking a car from what appears to be a complete write-off to the envy of the community!
It's the same thing that attracts people to watch the Kardashians!! LOL

Weighing in late, I know! Have you ever tried an ultrasonic vibrating tool, mine is a Rockwell, for removing the undercoating? The scraper works well for removing glued-down flooring, tile, grout and even trimming concrete edges. The frequency is adjustable, so it could be fine tuned for your application. ...I, also, am impressed by your ingenuity and work ethic.

you mean removing undercoating like this?

been there. Blasting was just more time effective in my current situation.

I have to say that the octisserie is a blessing. Spent some time welding. Was able to fix all those weld problems I faced while welding upside down. So nice to have gravity work for you and not against you.

I admit it is strange seeing a car hanging sideways in the garage each time I open the door.

It has been a while since I have posted an update. The octisserie is great. I put the car into the garage tail first and that meant I had access to the inside of the PS rocker/floor seams. Welding was mostly easy since I am looking straight down and gravity is on my side. I hate fighting gravity with a puddle of molten metal.

After welding the seam it was time to flip the car over and around. So the car was rolled outside, then rotated nose first.



While it was out my son was trying to flip the car. He gave it a really good try but was just not strong enough. Of course, I did not not tell him that pulling was much more difficult than lifting and pushing forward.



Once it was back in the garage flipping it is as easy as one...



two... (produce your own mental image of a car locked at 45 deg).

three...


I have put marks on the floor so that when I tip up the car it places the hoops about an inch from the wall without touching. Perfect positioning.


Since the car was flipped around I decided it was time to spend some time welding and grinding. Not much longer I was finished. I have welded the butt-weld seams all the way around the pedal cluster. and up into the center tunnel. Feels good to have floors finished.





Next step is to start reinforcements to the rear shock tower, torsion tube, center tunnel and a few other sections. Then I will start installing the rear deck and heel panel. This was a huge panel and I hope progress will be a little faster from this point forward.

The floors are basically done so I am moving on to reinforcements. I am triangulating the corners of the rear shock tower. Interesting to see how bad the fit is of this panel. Huge gaps top and bottom. Not sure if this is due to previous damage, wear, old age or just plane poor fit. So, I hammered the seams and welded them up.

There are a total of 6 gussets. one front and rear (each) at the lower section of the shock tower to longitudinal. One rear on the top of the shock tower between the tower and what will be my rear deck section.



Next up is reinforcement of the top of the shock tower where it sits on the longitudinal and actual shock mount reinforcements. Yes, the standard type RSR reinforcements. Then I will move on to tie the center tunnel to the torsion tube.

I have to complete all this before I weld in the heel panel and rear deck.

Cory. No current plan for coil-overs. But I won't rule it out for the future. Mostly, I am just trying to take out some torsional twist and reinforce known weak spots.
