Default Somebody Stop Me!

I have more pictures to add later, but somebody stop me. This repair job is on the verge of snowballing out of control. Every time I think about it I have visions of taking the body off and starting over.

A friend of mine has this body shop he takes all his cars to. Since I replaced his trunk pan, supports and 1/4 panel for him last summer, he's called in a favor. I'm supposed to take the car to the guy this coming Saturday and see about getting these few areas spot painted. I know damn well the guy is going to give me a killer price on repainting the entire car and I'm gonna end up having to explain to my wife why she can't park her car in the garage because my frame and engine are on one side, and the body shell is on the other side.

HELP!!!

Might be easier to get rid of the wife

My current project is in it's big ole snow ball phase. What started as replacing an A arm bushings has turned into a disk brake swap, all new steering parts, new steering box, engine rebuild, new aluminum radiator, new shocks, and some sheet metal work.

More pics. I also filled all the holes in the wheel openings meant for the stainless trim.
