At long last - part 9 in the 1960 Plymouth Fury 2-door hardtop series.

I've yet to watch it but, from the video description, "This time: Repairing the carburetor, building new brake lines, tuning up the distributor, and fabricating rust repair panels for the drivers side quarter panel."

Nearly 50 minutes long, this episode :

Nice work just using hand tools.

I just showed this Cold War vid to a freind of mine who does master fabrication work. This spring were going to attempt some 61 Fury patch panels. He has all the proper metal working machines to do it. He builds from scratch custom tear drop trailers,rat rods,gassers. Here is a sample of his work on a Nomad gasser. https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=1hek909&qft=+filterui%3auserpag...

I tend to admire people who have fabrication skills that I do not YET have. I didn't post that video to highlight 55 Chevys or rat rods. Just the fabrication skills it takes to make such a car. To be able to cut the frame and make a precision custom straight axle front end. (With disc brakes) The tilt front end in this vid is all metal,sturdy,precision, with factory door gaps. It goes together like a snipers rifle. https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=55+chevy+tilt+front+end&&view=d...

I will post a vid of the 61 ply panels when there done and they can be criticized then. Unless there's a aftermarket source for 61 Plymouth that I don't know about?

*Finally* - part 10 is up. From the video description:

"We're back with more of our 1960 Plymouth Fury Daily Driver Project! Before I can finish the restoration of the bodywork, I decided to rebuild all of the brakes and rear axle seals while it was in the garage waiting its turn for welding."

In successive weeks for the first time in a while - part 11.

Just starting to watch it - from the video description:

"Hi guys! We're back with more 1960 Fury Project! This time we'll start on the welding to repair the rust in the door jamb, and fit the door to the 1/4 panel a bit better, as well as get going on the light collision damage to the yellow 1/4..."

If I were to guess, Scott wants to burn on this baby enough to get it on the road by summer. Part 12 just posted.

From the video description: "Hi guys! We're back with more 1960 Fury Project! This time we'll start making up the repair panels for the right rear 1/4 panel... Lots of rust and damage to sort out, so I am going to keep plowing through the job! Also, this week I pulled the Frazer back out and we took the first trip for chips of the year in the old barge. 6 volt cranking at the end of the video, for anyone who likes that kind of thing..."

He did a great job on getting the complex curve done on that trunk drop-down. It's not real easy to do that. On the dogleg, it looked like it was in pretty good shape. If so, I would have left the original there and tacked the new panel to it. Then cut it off and finish welding it to the new panel while off the car. Pretty easy to clean it up and straighten it while the panel is free. That would have saved a lot of work trying to get that dog leg right.

"HI! We're back with Part 13 of the Fury rebuild! This time I'll finish the last of the pieces needed to redo the right quarter, and then it's time to fit it all together! Also: I delivered the 1969 Mercury Cougar XR7 back to my friend, and I thought we'd have a look at his collection while we were over for a visit... I look forward to taking a closer look at a few of his cars and bikes here this summer; I think we should also take some of them for a drive!"

"HI! We're back with Part 14 of the Fury rebuild! This time I'll be joined by Agent 223 and we'll get the rear 1/4 window repaired and fitting while the quarter panel is off... Then, it's time to pull the rear clip again and get it ready to weld on for the final time. I'll also start fitting all of the repair panels to the quarter and tack them in place before taking the whole thing off again to finish the welding and fitting."

At last, part 15 of the 1960 Plymouth Fury build is up - from the video description:

"HI! We're back with Part 15 of the Fury rebuild! This time I'll get the right 1/4 panel dialed in with Agent 673 and I'll install the trunk repair panels and then the big day as the right 1/4 goes on for the final time! No rest for the wicked though, and I'm immediately on to making more repair pieces for the left side... Now that the worst of the metal work is roughed in, the project is going to pick up speed!

I hope you enjoy our "Turn up the Base" feature this week: a 1958 Citroen 2CV on loan from Agent 9088, our west-coast French Car Division star... He purchased the car in Edmonton here, and it was taking a rest at CWMC before shipping home to Vancouver, so we had to take it for a burn around the compound! I think you'll find it is deserving of the title of "Most Base Thing Ever"!" :

Scott is pretty good to get that outer wheelhouse lip correct. It does get covered with trim so i think he is happy about that. that huge piece of stainless just means you need a good base there and not perfect.

I thought the same, "she'll be right, big bit of trim covers that" but no, the big bit of trim wont sit right if its not right underneath

The other thing is it has to fit into the bumper recess properly and also line up with the bit that covers the front of the wheel arch ect

I am aiming at not using all that trim on mine

Someone on here photoshoped a sedan into a 4drht that was pretty much exactly how I am trying to build mine

"HI! We're back with Part 16 of the Fury rebuild! This time we're on to the left side of the car, and I'll start by repairing the wheel house so that we can begin to fit the repair panels for that side. I also decided to do another splice; this time the right front fender gets the treatment! The Fury is really starting to take shape now, and we're going to keep plowing through it to finish it in less than a year of spare time...

I hope you enjoy our "Sketchy Dust-in" feature this week: a clean 1989 BMW 320i in for some tidying courtesy of Agent 0842... One of the fastest jobs yet; start to finish in 48 hours, including bodywork, prep, and paint!

Also this week: Agent 223 stops in in his sweet 1964 Galaxie 500 to kick the tires for a bit and Frankers is pretty proud of the gigantic stick she found!"

yeah firewalls are a pita... esp if you dont completely rip out everything.

Im curious to see how he pulls it off if he doesnt.

He said that he typically has to do everything he can to make the highest quality or the internet trolls are like "omg he does crap"... That lower quarter is an insane task... not many can pull that off.

He's crazy for welding it all together in one long line though. It's a lot easier to weld it to the body in more manageable sections. The vertical parts of the welds don't warp on you because of how curved the panel is in that area.

Part 18 is up in time for plenty of weekend - looks like a little update on the 1959 Chrysler Windsor 4-door sedan he recently rescued as well. From the video description:

"HI! We're back with Part 18 of the Fury rebuild! This time we'll tackle painting the firewall the correct colour and start reassembling the front end of the car... I still have lots of rust repair to do as well, so we can have a look at how I did the right headlight eyebrow repair... Also: Agent 303 stopped in s owe figured we'd try to fix some of the hinges and latches on the 1959 Chrysler so we could refit the hood and trunk lid to help the car look a lot better!"

he seems to want to hammer it out. He has it open and can hammer it flat.  It seems crazy...
