Now that I have more time on my hands, I decided to start the tear down on the 68 Bird. I had been working on it but the progress has been slow. I plan on speeding things up a little since I lost my Camaro.

I pulled all of the exhaust,brake lines,fuel lines, and shocks out of the back half. The fire wall is now bare and the heater core is out along with everything under the dash except for the wiring and steering wheel.

I'm hoping to have it back on the road mid July. It will have no interior or paint like you mentioned. I want it for the car craft car show in July. I got a pretty good kick to the head when I lost my 77RS, and I still feel it. I'm trying to get all of this done starting at 9:15 every evening. Can't work on the car until the kids are in bed.

I'm glad I pulled the blower motor and heater core. This would have made a nice mess the first time the fan was turned on. LOL

My plan is to get the complete floor pan and toe boards pulled out of the car and weld in a complete floor with the help of a couple of nasty members. This should happen next weekend. The quarters are in the works, I hope to have them fixed in the next couple of weeks.
