He is really working all out on this.
He must really need his roof re-done

He doesn't need a roof lol. He's just retired and apparently likes to stay busy. Got the new floor panel all trimmed up and welded in.

Hey Neil... i may be wrong, but if i squint at the pics, it looks like this may still have its rear seat. Worth a call to ask anyway.

I thought so too. I sent him a couple of emails. Never heard back.

I think I saw it a few months ago when I was doing a bid up north, off Burn road out by Granite Falls. I didn't know I needed a seat back then or I would have stopped.

Got a lot of small stuff fixed while I was waiting for the outer wheel wells. Got some holes patched in my doors.  Got the hood pin holes on my hood welded over.  Found out the hood I picked up had 10 coats of paint on it.  Got my valence panel straightened out.  Fixed all the holes in my front wheel wells.  Got the passenger side rear wheel well all put back together.  Tried to do the driver side and found I need a patch panel in the inner wheel well. Got that ordered up.  I've been spending a lot of time with a wire wheel on my frame.  Getting close to being ready for paint on the frame.

Haven't posted any updates in a while. Got the outer wheel wells replaced. I had to redo the inner wheel well on the passenger side, it was total swiss cheese. Got the 2 lower rear quarter panel patches all done. He had to rebuild the lip of the trunk from scratch. Found out the car got bumped right on the rear SS emblem, got that straightened out. Welded up all the remaining holes in the floor/trunk. Welded up a bunch of holes around the front and back window. Got the hood all straightened out. Patched the holes for the hood pins, and eliminated the holes where some guy decided to add cowl induction emblems on the side the SS humps. Got all the holes in the door repaired. I found out the new hood I picked up is actually a 69 hood. So now my hood hinges won't fit. But the original one would have been a lot more work.
Got the rest of the body as straight as we could. Then used light coat of filler. Longboard sanded the whole thing. Got the glaze coat on, then mores sanding. He ended up longboard sanding the car 8 times. He just sent me some pictures with the epoxy primer on the body. It really looks good now. Hard to believe its the same car that was a rusted mess 6 weeks ago.

Going back to the original cordovan maroon with black lower section. When we sanded the paint off we found the original white stripes. So those are going back on also.
