Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Looks like it's coming along, but you have a long row to hoe there yet! Good luck getting it all gapped right, and the sooner you weld those old tail light holes up the happier I'll be. God they are ugly!

Thanks, guys.

bob, you're welcome here anytime.

dutch, we broke the handle a while back... it's just a heavy prop rod, now.

Bill, we hate those holes more than anybody, but while they remain, we find them kinda handy. When one guy's in the trunk making adjustments, the other can watch and pass tools through them if needed... we've also become fond of stripping panels with heat guns (no grinding, no messy chemicals) and the holes make perfect holsters!

That area on my Dodge is all McGaffered up as well. And nobody makes a replacement piece. (Crappy or otherwise). So quit whining.
Going to spend part of this winter dreaming of how I'm going to fix it.
As always. I have no doubt of the outcome of yours.

Who would have thought at the start of this build that such evil was lurking under an innocent looking white paint job?? My hat is off to you guys for going the extra mile to make a decent car out of it again. Makes me feel spoiled working with a realativly clean body on the Packard. I guess some of those "back in the day" rods were just not that great or safe, but then they didn't have all the tools that we take for granted like MIG welders and other metal shaping tools or all the aftermarket parts.....
Keep the good stuff coming
