had to get my tudor going today to get it on my dad's trailer so we could trailer it to a local body shop where the guy was gonna give me a quote on the panel repairs. well i guess im gonna be putting it on the back burner for a bit till i save up $650-700 for the repairs, not to mention the panels themselves. i am lucky that there isnt too much rot or places needing repairs because that kept the cost down. the less work his has to do the cheeper the labor cost is. For now i can start dissasembly, and get the body off the frame.

 

I have a bunch of pictures to upload  and will post them tomorrow. Check back soon for more updates!

 

Thanks for viewing my site!

Finally finished pulling out all the interior, Minus headliner, today. got all the rot and rusted spots mapped out and ready to order the panels. Anyone know a good place to get the best patch panels? I dont want panels that are thinner than the original metal or thickers.
