    So i got a few pics to post up here....first one is as i found her, she did not run or drive and had been sitting for about a year....



    I replaced the fuel pump, plugwires, cap, rotor,coil and she runs like a champ ...ITS ALIVE! (i know your jealous of my nascar tires)



    so i have had the car about one week now and have started working on the only bad rust spot on the whole car, Pass. rear door was repaird at some point and was kinda lousy workmenship and rusted right in the middle of the lower panel... so i sanded it down to the metal around the rust spot





    so after alot of sanding and a rust removel wheel i put down a coat of rust rust inhibitor (the purple stuff in the middle there)


    after more sanding its time for the filler...



    and then even more sanding, and a second coat of body filler...



    little more sanding and primer...





    not bad for a first timer ...now i just need to learn to paint
