Had some spare time , so using my spot weld bit, I drilled out nearly 100 spot welds and two bead welds.
I knew there were more rust issues. Didn't know there are three rust through spots.
All fixable though.
The heater funnel will be removed & a plate welded in : this car will get a small, light electric heater.

FYI....

Had a set of front mounts bolted to a 351w (mock up engine for test fitting).
Sitting there having a refreshment , thought: looks like if I take the one from the front left, it should work on the back right.
I'll (one day) drop the engine in the car to see where they match up with the frame rail.
If it fits OK, will be a good way to mount the engine.
I held a set of Headman Headers up to the ports. Fits OK.

Ahh so that's what's under the skin. I'll need to do that to mine to straighten the slots on my vent intake (Don't ask, it was a lack of hood pins.  :P )  No heater, but I see potential for a neat cowl intake and rust remediation with roll cage install.

Pintosopher, never trust a car guythat reeks of Doob at 7am, you might lose your self control.
Yes, it is possible to study and become a master of Pintosophy.. Not a religion , nothing less than a life quest for non conformity and rational thought. What Horse did you ride in on?

Never going to finish this car.

As soon as I know I will not need anything from it......it will have to go. Along with some other stuff......
