Been working on my GT6 since the day I bought it back in 95. The PO I saved it from claimed it was 'paint ready'-we've all heard that in one form another! Lots of rust, bondo, and rust. Did I mention rust?
I drove it for 2 years while it rusted further and I collected funds to buy needed body panels.
Back then I purchased floors, rockers, and a battery tray, but never got much chance to actually work on it.
Now 17 years later and a donor tub I am up to my ears in work. I always say 'One of these days I'll drive it again' and I really am getting closer. Much of the work I have put into the car has happened since 2009.
Rusted out floor pans, rockers, heelboard, trunk floor, quarter panels...the usual. But also needing replacement were the lower firewall sections, the firewall shelf, rear valance, rear emblem panel, upper and lower A-pillars, dash frame, outer wheel wells, and the lower corners of the windshield frame. Yeah, pretty much the whole tub. Maybe I shoulda used it as a parts car?

Misc Updates.

Posted on: Thursday June 7, 2018

Been up to a lot of little things lately. Waiting on some more tools so I can finish beating the tar out of the last few remaining dents and get them running for the hills. I decided my previous faceplate was a good start, but I couldn't get the OEM style out of my head, primarily how I would go about shaping it out of a single piece of metal. (I know, I could buy one...but where is the fun in that!) OEM face plate, for reference.

Radio Support

Posted on: Thursday April 19, 2018

I shoulda snapped a shot of the H-support before I started as it shows my original attempt of upholstery. It amounted to cheap black automotive carpet, the kind that looks good for a few minutes, but balls up when you touch it. But, anyway I've got plans to bring the look of the dash down the face of the H-support. I started in on that these past two days. I'm going to need to build a radio support box that bolts to the H-frame, so now is as good a time as any to get it all mocked up. I ...
