Update:

Well, I have most of the right rear 1/4 panel finished. Im looking for a piece of equipment I need to make the last patch panel to finish it up. Im also waiting on Sotty to cut out some good rust free NV left rear 1/4 panel patches for me before I get started on that side. So, in the meantime, I am working on a few projects
1 is the 83 tail lense reproduction project. I have bought every spare set of 83 tails I can get my hands on and hopefully will be starting to make molds to reproduce 83 lenses in the near future
2 is odds and ends on the fiji, I bought a set of Quest tails from Burton that had tinted lenses, but needed taken apart and cleaned up and re-sealed. Here are some pics of them finished up and the rear license plate center molding all cleaned, sanded, and repainted.

They look way darker than they actually are. If you hold them up and look trough them from the back you can see right through. I know they will light up alot better now that they've been disassembled, repainted silver on the inside and all 3 lenses thoroughly cleaned and polished. Im hoping that Motocam will finish up his led taillights soon and start offering a package to convert stock tails to led.

You'd be suprised. Like BC said, they look darker than they are. 3 coats of VHT "Night Shades" and a few coats of a good urethane automotive clear. The clear actually makes them look darker than they are and really gives them that deep, glossy piano black look.

I have done dozens of sets of tailights for many different cars and have done them all the same. The brake lights, and even parking lights are still visible during the day, Every set I have done used normal off the shelf bulbs... no LEDs, and even with the standard bulbs, they are nicely visible.

Thanks for the input Mark, so whaddya think about the 2 tone black look on em with the shiny lenses and wrinkle finished housing? I kinda dig the look. I will definately be sending some 83 lenses your way when I get them in production.

Update time. Finally getting motivated to get this car back together now that I have the 1/4 panel I need from parting a car and all of that is done and over with. Here are some updated pictures of the progress.

Passenger side is complete and bodywork is roughed in and in cheapo rattle can primer to protect until paint and body man gets it.

Posted Image

Drivers side is cut off and work has begun on repairing the rust beneath the rust beneath the rust...:(

Posted Image

Posted Image

I am looking for this section in rust free condition shipped to NC 28027 if anyone who is looking at this has a piece they are willing to cut out for me. PM me!

Posted Image

More to come as progress continues.

Looks good. Also I know what I'm looking at on mine when rust repair starts. I think my fenders are clean but my rockers and inside of the doors looks just like yours.

I do need the section that is marked off in tape, cut all the way thru to the floor board if you have it rust free and are willing to cut and ship it. Thanks!

Yeah, it sucks. None of my NC cars have rust, just this POS from PA. Unfortunately its my favorite, so I have to do what's in my ability to do. Now paint and final bodywork is gonna have to be a paid job for someone. I just don't have the knack for it. Thanks for the well wishes. Im rolling on with it now. :)

Thank you, hopefully I can get this old bucket back to what it deserves.

And here are some updates... not much to show. I have been fitting up the outer wheel house and 1/4 skin until I can find the lower inner rocker section I need. Here are some pictures.

More to come hopefully as I have a couple of weeks off starting the week of Thanksgiving, and hopefully I can work it out with Allen to get the pieces I need from his car listed in the parts section today.
