Yep, here I go again. Another 250 in the shop. Bought this one earlier this year from guy in PA. It was suppose the be rust free frame. Thats what I get for buying a car on the phone. Don't think the guy was trying misrep the car but do know he didn't know anything about the car. It is fairly complete and have all the parts and pieces including a new ( used) frame. Guess where I will be this winter. Check pic of wiper motor mod. It will be fun the replace that metal

More fun in Marv's garage! Nothing more exciting than getting a new old car, and nothing dampens that excitement like finding rust! winking smiley Does the wiper motor work? Or, should I say, does it work better than the original one that ought to occupied that space?

Little progress made. Love the Holidays but it keeps me out of the garage.

Frame is complete. Started on tub. In holding pattern right now waiting on nice day to sandblast. Have all parts disassembled and ready. I make some real show after blasting is done.

I do my frames a little different from most folks. I use a thick straight enamel. It seems to be pliable and will stay on the frame. Powder coat is great but its so hard, after it cracks it allows rust to get in. Just my thoughts.
