The window trimmings are in the process of being removed. I am not doing this part I am letting my dad do this part. Here are some photos. I got to purchase roof rail and door w/s but my car payment and other notes will come 1st before anything else. If I was still working at my last job making $7.25 /hr I would of never of bought my 2016 dodge challenger. Were I am at now I am making more I got benefits and my paycheck is directly deposited to savings and I transfer enough to checking to pay a note that is due and fill up my fuel tank. The rest stays in the savings account.

The new panels have been welded on the left front fender. It has been a hell of a journey on the car. This is the last car my dad is going to restore for me.

I have a question I hope some one here would please answer . I did a start up on my '61 and it looked like rusty water came out of the exhaust pipe . Is this normal? My dad plans to pull the motor and tear it down and put new freeze plugs and what else it needs. The motor runs good but it runs rough when I step on the brakes. I was told I have a leak in the booster and will be putting a power brake booster off of later model chrysler.

When a car sits for long periods of time, any condensation (moisture) in the exhaust system will create rust in the pipes. It is normal after a start-up after long periods of not running for rusty water to come out of the tail pipes until the moisture is cleared out evaporated by the heat and expelled with exhaust pressure. Should be nothing to worry about except for rust holes that could come through the pipes but you'll be able to see and/or hear that.

I did some more sanding on the car and added rust converter to were it was needed, There has been a couple of times I have thought about calling it quits on the restoration. This has been 1 hell of a long project .

I was told that there is not much more to do on the car . Sand blasting under the car , pulling the 318 out so I can sand the engine compartment, remove the fuel tank and sand cut a piece of trunk floor were there is cancer. A new piece will be welded on and grinded , sanded primered and painted. . I wish the restoration was complete right now because I would be decorating it for the Minor Hill, TN Christmas parade.
This is how I would decorate the car fake snow on the rear window Then the viliage , fake Christmas presents in back seats , Christmas bears holding battery operated candles.
The out side will have fake snow on the roof, hood and trunk. Then the garland , battery operated Christmas lights . I would also not be surprised if I got a 1st place trophy .

I did some work on the trunk yesterday. I vacuumed out the dirt and my dad did some grinding , I had to vacuum the trunk floor again and then I applied 1 coat of rust converter . I waited 20 minuites and applied a 2nd coat. My dad will be applying the tar were it needs to go . the 1st photo is before applying the 2nd is the 1st coat and the 3rd is the 2nd coat
