Started looking more seriously at the windshield frame and it looks like it will be an expensive piece.
I am still planning on removing the top of the frame but I found about a foot long section of the bottom curved part of the frame/ window channel that was rotted out. I drilled out the spot welds on the lip that hangs over the dash and decided that I can't patch the rust holes in the channel. Trying to find a replacement frame is proving difficult because most of them sell just the frame but not a drop in replacement. Some come with the hinge but I don't need that.
Next decent swap meet is still months away and I am not patient enough to wait that long. I did order a few more pieces of shiny stuff for it.
Hope to start working on getting the engine together this week.

I now have most of the parts I need to get the engine together. I got the intake manifold from hot heads yesterday. Waiting for a mechanic friend to come over and keep me from putting things together wrong.
I also ordered a new grill shell and insert. The fiberglass shell that I have is chopped so a standard insert won't fit and I have not been able to find one that has the same chop. I found a new steel shell and insert for less than any of the other inserts that I was looking at. I figured that I could drop the new shell down to get the right height.
