    I'm glad there are still people saving these classic cars. Almost everybody would have looked at all of that rust and said nope. Bravo to you sir.

    Its just a job for me, the owner is the brave one! He is supposed to visit tomorrow, I have not met him. Must be pretty cool. I hear its a wifey desire. Not a terribly valuable car though. Yet...

    Even though its just a "job" for you, you still have the skill and knowledge to bring a dead vehicle back to life.

    Thanks Joe. I dig old cars and it is cool to make a living fixing them. Experience puts things in proper perspective and allows me to do the work without giving it much thought or becoming intimidated. That seems natural to me but it does freak some folks out. Like you, I'm just glad people are willing to save the cars they love. The Biscayne is pretty much the 1960 version of a GP GT in that it was never anything special or desireable so I am curious how many rusty GTs that should have been nicely fixed now are getting scrap metal riveted over rust, and what folks who had one as a first car will be willing to pay for nice repairs in 20 years.

    I'm truly grateful to be able to witness the work that you do.

    It's not just because I like to see these old cars resurrected, it's because I can look at these pictures, see the holes and pitting, weak joints and flimsy structural bracing, and see what it actually would take to solve each problem.

    I can see how to fix what "shouldn't" be fixable, and it's all thanks to you and your willingness to share what you do on this forum.

    Thank you.

    Handling upgrades, go-slow parts, and an attitude.

    Well, all I mainly do here is dump pics with no explanations. The stream of praise is appreciated and helps keep me posting. Letting the pics speak for themselves makes you study them harder possibly. Anything you see and wonder how I knew what to do... ask about. I am not the most skilled-est tech but I can explain every move.

    1- Used air / electric shear to cut an inch and a half strip of 18 gauge cold roll steel

    2- Used sheetmetal brake to put a 90 degree bend along the strip to create an L flange

    3- Measure, pie cut one side of bent flange, bend with bench vise, test fit and cut to rough length, weld up pie cut, grind weld (with flame shaped burr bit for inside corners), trim to fit closely. Sandblast in cabinet. They have to be held or clamped, to look just right.

    4- Will be drilling plug weld holes on horizontal side, not done yet.
