Absolutely wonderful job, you are doing great.  Kudos to your courage to tackle such a big task.  Awesome!!!!!  Keep it up, the whole job is just one step after the other.  You have started with the hardest part and conquered it.  You are the man.

Thank you, I anguished over the first weld for quite some time then decided I had asked enough question and just needed to do it.  I think it turned out well.  Thank you again.

Thank you Charger 74, yeah it was a big step that took a long time to take, anyway, it is done.  Things down here are drying out, we will be leaving one week from today.

Awesome job! Its a great start. I can't wait to get into my car and do the floorboards and trunk. My welding skills suck to so it should be interesting. The pictures are great. I hope you get a nice garage. Thats the only thing I am worrying about when I buy my next house.

Earth. Even the word sounded strange to me now... unfamiliar. How long had I been gone? How long had I been back? Did it matter? I tried to find the rhythm of the world where I used to live. I followed the current. I was silent, attentive, I made a conscious effort to smile, nod, stand, and perform the millions of gestures that constitute life on earth. I studied these gestures until they became reflexes again. But I was haunted by the idea that I remembered her wrong -Solaris

hi silva,been following this thread a while now,like you i also got burned buying my '68 rt off ebay.was wanting to import my own into the uk,found one that looked just the ticket advertised as wanting a few welding repairs to the floor,front and rear frame rails the pictures of the best parts were taken and looked great !so i thought thats the one for me!!so put in a bid and finally won the car for $8800 which i think was about 5000 English pounds at the time.got the shipping organized and took two months to finally arrive(think hurricane katrina was going on at the time).when it finally arrived at my door i was devastated to say the least,frame rails were like yours,no floors at all,inner rockers,outer rockers,front torque box all rotted badly...did not know what to do so just put it in the garage and left it while desiding what to do brickwall.finally plucked the courage up and started cutting and welding spent a fortune with year one,and she finally started coming together,been at her for 2 years now and last peice of welding was completed this week,thought it would be the death of me early on but she finally come together,just the motor and bodywork to sort out now.
trust me your doing the right thing,just stick at it and it will come together,also when your finished your welding skills will be outstanding.double bonus... 2thumbs

They'd have more window than car to sweep up if that's true.

Give Silva a break guys....

He did a great job so far but not everybody has time to do a 5 month resto job. I'm pretty sure he'll hang in there and post some pics when he get's along.....
