Sorry for lack of updates on this one, house Work and boat Work has consumed my time

Got tank out, and sold. Dropped front suspension and rear suspension out.

Will be going full 935 suspension like my last build

Looks like that "pig" has had some upgrades, judging by the brakes.

What motor are you planning? 325 could be achieved with a warmed up NA 3,6? Something like Singer uses could be just the ticket one would think.

It looks like a great 74 to start with. Like trackrash pointed out there are some nice up-grades on the car.
And the fact it's a 74 you may have a buyer when done. "This Guy" I look forward to seeing what coolness you build with this one.

+1. I'm also keen to know about your plans for the engine.

Great project!

Dry Ice does wonders to break up that undercoating!

Thought they were packing peanuts and couldn't figure out how they would help! Dry ice makes much more sense.

Yeah man! Dry ice is the only way.. Let sit for 40 seconds or so, sweep it aside and whack lightly with a deadblow, and that crappy tar busts like cheap glass.

Does it also work well for the glued remains of the insulation on the rear seats?

Had to break out my grandfathers 46 year old Work apron for this one! Man, to anyone thinking of shaving rain gutters, I completely underestimated this job

Jim are you going to weld the entire seem after you cut off the gutter?

Shaved the gutters on my track car years ago. Was a messy job I would not likely complete again. The roof is easy. The A pillars are really thin on that outside corner. Careful there.

The C pillar is full of some insulation and stuffing. It will just burn when you try to weld.

I segmented the rail every 4 inches, welded and then cut the rest and weld.
