of my 1964 Corvair Coupe
So begins part five...
|The images are nearly self-explanatory. I provide some narrative to explain some of the reasons this project cost much more than the original "estimate." Isn't that ALWAYS the case?|
|The cutouts at the circle were required because the guy who installed the second one-piece floorboard some 30 years ago, simply layed it over the cutout from the original one and only pop-rivetted it in place and put some puttylike sealant around the seams. Doug cut and welded the crossmembers of that floor then jigsaw-cut and welded the pieces as seen at the image on the right. I wonder how many hours that added to the project.|
|This is the original passenger-side door. It was a lost cause. I found a great one at Corvair Ranch. Its cost and shipping were less than fixing the original door.|
|So, now, I have to get working on cleaning up the drive train.|
