After rolling my car for close to a year it's almost time for paint. As one can tell the floor pans have been replaced along with the rockers and the trunk pan. The car from,

The donor car also provided a replacement engine block as mine was cracked. The frame has been sand blasted and painted; new front and rear springs as well as other suspension parts have been added. The frame is now back on wheels, with the engine and transmission rebuilt and installed in the freshly painted frame. It is now awaiting arrival of the body once painting is completed.

I can't wait to see the car rolling on four tires rather than a rotisserie!

As a side note if anyone knows how the underside and inside of the trunk were painted and undercoated I am interested in discussing this with them. I know that the underside and inside of the trunk was a darker gray (it appears to be Battleship Gray covered with undercoating in places).
