The time has come to begin the body work. I am a half decent mechanic but by no means a body man. I am quite worried about the whole process. Seeing as it is now summer and there is only a few months of nice weather left here, I want to get this thing on to the road. The plan is throw the body on and make it all removable(bolt the body to firewall). That way I can just sand down the casting lines, a bit of filler, spray some flat black and drive it for a couple months. Then this coming winter remove the body and with the help of some friends do a quality paint job. Has anyone done something similar in the past? I just don't want to do anything irreversible to the body. Any tips of suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
PS: I notched the passenger side lower firewall as suggested and plan to raise the passenger side door sill. For those of you who have done this did you raise it 3/16" or 1/4"? Also I have already read "Dangerous curves ahead" thread, lots of great info in there!
