Went and picked up some sheet metal from a guy and ended up buying a bunch of other stuff, like I need it. I then saw in the back barn a 72 scout. He brought it back from Arkansas. Incredably rust free. a few dents but no rust. Right front fender has been repainted as it has filler at the top from a dent. The only rust is a little in the front passenger floor at firewall, small patch 4" X 4" should take care of that. But all mounts are great etc. It had been stored inside for 12 years. Interior is clean to. My eyes got as large as a dinner plate when I saw how clean it was. 90K on it. I will get pics when I get it home probably next month.

Here are a couple of pics. What do you guys think? I will be taking off the front and rear bumpers when I get it home and selling them want to put stock bumpers on it.

That is a nice find up there where most everything rusts(Iam from NW. Indiana)
How do you find the time to work on all of them?

It's hard thats why the wagonmaster is on hold. Any free time I have thats what i do with it. Last week went to bed at 10 couldn't sleep so at midnight went out in the garage worked till 5:30a.m. came in cleaned up got the boy off to school then went to work. Got home one day this week at 4:30 worked on the 1980 till 9:30. so a few days like that here and there make alot of progress. Plus usually get a hour or so in during the week before dinner almost everyday after I get home from work. I just have to micro manage my time. Although getting older it is harder and harder for me not to feel the effects of doing all nighters. Probably will be doing a all nighter in the next week or two when I can paint the front end of the 1980.

Holy Crap! I leave for a bit & look at what I've missed. Darren posts his own pictures!!! :gunsmilie:
Nice find. Should nickname it "Hog"
.. gotta say tho -- pace yourself! You'll burn out on everything if you don't slow down for a bit... put down the grinder, grab your son and go for a pizza. The old iron can wait... it's been waiting for 28+ years.
Breathe, enjoy, repeat.
