Great progress!!
I also prefer painting outdoors. You can't  beat the great lighting and ventilation!
What kind of primer and paint are you using?

this is my second time to do this and i am in a money saving mode.I really like Rustoleum.I had everything media blasted and painted with KBS Rust seal first (better than por 15 IMHO) you can spray it right out of the can without thinning and a qaurt goes a long way.Than I sprayed Rustoleum with 10% acetone semi gloss .A Arms,swaybars and core support are gloss . 35 bucks for the KBS and 15 for the Rustoleum and you can touch up with spray cans.Last restore i did i used eastwood but this one looks just as good

It's amazing how clean that sheet metal is.  This has been an "Ohio car" it's entire life and you just don't find virgin metal like that here.  The dent in the door jamb and quarter was actually a blessing simply because this is what made the owner park it for so many years (since 1973).  I can't wait to see this car back on the road and I'm so happy we was able to save another one from the crusher and Bob is reunited with "the car" from his youth.

Chris he saved the QTR after all the cutting up another car paying to have it blasted there wasnt much left of the donor QTR and he saved this one .Body work is done ready to start blocking and final touch said the car will be ready for the frame to pick up painted and buffed in 4-8 weeks

That's awesome to see that the quarter could be saved.  This car is so amazingly solid and I'm really glad to see that she still has her original quarters.

Can't wait until she's done and it looks like the worst is behind you now.
