Impatience is not a virtue

Well, I thought I had the frame all ready to go, but looks like there's more to do before I can get it painted up.  The two rear body mounts are much more rusted than I thought, and they will have to be repaired.  Choices are to either fabricate new sections, or order repair parts.  I'll probably to a little bit of both.  While I'm at it, I will likely take a closer look at the other end as well.  I've already welded in some extra support for the center mounts, and they should be fine.

The A-arms are partway done.  I need to hit the bottom sides with the POR-15, and then finish coat them.

Pics will follow.  In the meantime, here's a wicked cool video of a twin-turbo 68 Camaro on the track.

Update:  Frame repair parts are ordered.  Should have them late this week or early next.
