Thanks guys! One of my most favorite parts of this hobby is doing the metal work. The way this is going I think it's going to be nicer than my chevelle :/ lol

Holy crap! That's how a parts car should be used! What are you using to cut it? A Sawzall? Cuts look clean. Whos 66 in background?

I'm using a sawzall, it took me an hour to cut the firewall off. I was kinda sore the next day lol ūüėā. The 66 elcamino belongs to the guy I bought the biscayne from

Bought some more spot weld cutters today and separated most of the dash and cowl pieces from the parts car. Here's a pic of what I'm dealing with!

Went down to dick's U pull in spanaway today and cut this trunk filler out of one of the cars there. They don't reproduce this piece for the sedans or 4 door hardtop yet. They only charged me $20!!!

Probably not a lot of people looking for it.. I think you are ahead of the curve on restoring a sedan. Lol still smile when I read dicks-u-pull.

lol Brett I have been laughing about that for the last couple days! It's a great yard and reasonably priced. There are a few chevelles and elcaminos out there. Being a 2 door sedan I think it's pretty cool, not too many around. I think they will start being popular

Started fitting the new rear under seat floor pan, so far it's fitting great I wire wheeled the area cleaned and squirted some weld through primer.! Notice the seat belt anchor points, these weren't on my original floor panel. Good for kids!
