Your floors, Rockers, and Cab corners appear to rust free.

Wink Re: 1965 chevy truck one piece @a time

I would have got a lot more done today with my saturday off. But i went to the Good-Guys Fall nationals @ texas motor speedway nascar race a little over a month from now . but heres just a few pics of the sandblasting parts from today im still getting the sand out of my teeth .. i had the dust mask and hood on still ate a litte sand . Will hope to put the pices in primer ... the last pics of the radiator need a skim coat of metal filler or maybe just a good poxi primmer to fill the rough area from the lite pitting fro the battertray .. luck the fender well wasnt eatin up with batter acid
