That sure is looking good. What a job pulling the body like that. Fantastic!
There are some great builds here.

This is awesome! I can't wait to see what you do for the rear quarter panel. I have a WT with flares that need to either be completely replaced or patched up. Keep up the good job!

Thanks all that are watching my build! Pushed the Wagon out for the first time since the beginning of the summer. Glad she is back on her frame!

Hung my hood hinge springs from a chain fall with a little weight on them to open them up a little. Not sure if it needed it but I added some flex agent to the paint and clear on the springs to prevent cracking. probably over kill. Also no primer, used adhesion promoter direct to metal. Only time will tell if that was a good move or not.

Finished pulling the dash out so I can start fixing the rust around the cowl and windshield area.

For me, this is the most intimidating part of this project. Also, I have never had a dash this far apart, so this is all new ground to me.

Also kicking around the idea of painting the metal part of the dash the same color silver as the Wagon. What do y'all think? Or should I keep it black, What say you. And if I go silver, do I need to paint the steering columm too or leave it black.

The dash is the only part of my '77 interior that wasn't updated and I've been thinking I should do the metal bits blue to match the exterior (and door tops & pillars). I vote silver...looking forward to finished pics!
