    Im sure they knew but oh well....I looked at a few basket cases @ Ford Carlisle last year and they wanted double what I paid for a running car. So I figure Im ahead of the game. Most of the sheet metal arrived yesterday so breaking out the cut off wheel and welder this week end .!! I will post pics of the progress over the week end...

    Progress & delivered goodies...is always a good thing!!

    The one thing I found that really pissed me off (mostly because I missed it and the thought that anyone could do this and think it was safe) the floor support on the passenger side was spray foam and bondo...SOME people should not work on cars ...!!! All in ALL its a really GREAT start and much better than some of the other cars I looked at. Really looking forward to making some progress....
    Sad to see but that stuff unfortunately happens out there. I've actually seen cars that had actual 2x4 wood studs pieces (wasn't even Pressure Treated), inside the fender well. I actually remember asking the guy if this was a "Timber Frame Construction."

    Sorry to hear about the hidden issues, but I know the car is in good hands.

    It will be worth it. Building a car for your bride can be even more fun than building one for yourself..!!!

    Finished floor support....and NO spray Foam imagine that..!! Had to fix inner fram rail first and then put new floor support in. It looks alot worse than it realy is..
