    Update. Slow going these past several weeks because of school and the cold. Dad tried to use the project as a reason to set up a some sort of furnace or stove in the garage but mom is not buying it. We are trying to get the body out for sandblasting but weather and road conditions not cooperating. Down to two color choices now. Either kenwood green or Charlotte ivory. We ordered some aresole samples. Dad likes two tone but I’m not buying that.

    Found most of the clutch shredded up in the housing.

    the clutch is a bit too clean -- missing something

    Clutch assembly separated from the transmission.

    Engine and Transmission separated. Caked with grunge. It was driving well before we started so don't expect to do much here except inspect, clean and paint. At least I hope.

    It’s difficult to see in the picture with all the “under coatney” but there is a lot of crumbling metal around the edge of the floor pans and the mounts are mostly shot. Some sections are sandwiches of metal plates with crumble in the middle.

    In the rear we used existing holes to attach two steel straps. We drilled three 3/8 holes in the fire wall for the front. Will need to patch in the end.

    Surprise! My Plymouth Wagon Is a Covergirl

    Hi Mr. Riding, I am curious about the green paint on the crowl, fenders etc. Whats the name and technical specs on that blend?

    How do I report my dad to the administrator and get him kicked off my topic?

    No offense meant to those of you who have gained the experience that has resulted in such great wisdom, but at my age I’m thinking in some cases gaining the experience is going to be so much more fun than relaying on the wisdom. Also thinking that if I ever want to enjoy the pleasure of owning a beautiful black beast that I’d better do it while I’m young enough to keep up the effort to keep it shining 😎 That said I do like being different so I’m not sure what to do now and regretting that I asked.

    I’m thinking midnight black but not certain. Also like the gun metal black look. Dad suggested a two tone similar to the seats but I’m not seeing it. I’m pretty sure now that the original color was a dark green (I think called Kenwood green) open to thoughts from the group but leaning towards the midnight black? Again going with brown and tan interior cloth a rose gold with chrome (powder coated) interior trim and staying with the exterior stainless which is cleaning up well and thinking rally red for the wheels. Thoughts on colors?

    Material is hides from a leather wholesaler. $2.99 per sqr foot. www.4hides.com. Labor is local shop as mom doesn’t have a machine that can sew the thicker material. Dad said upholstery work is not cheap so don’t be messy and merry Christmas. I don’t think I’m getting much else under the tree thes year except some cans of POR-15 etc. oh and a pair of bumpers we’re finally picking up this weekend.

    That looks to be the only hole or soft spot in the frame. The rest of the frame looks to be really solid and cleaned up well. Dad and I start rebuilding the front suspension this month and we’re fingers crossed that the hole can be patched and sealed without compromising “structural integrity” as he says.
