    I've been gradually working on this since I posted. I'm gettin close to installing the rear clip. Here's a few updated pics. Bottom two show the test fit I did this weekend.

    It's always nice to see one being brought back to life.

    Well I haven't been keeping track, but I'd say I'm somewhere between 50-60 direct man hrs. It's hard to figure my time, because I'm usually working on a couple projects at a once.

    Slowly but surely. I still have some tweaking to do, but the test fit is close.

    i have been rebuilding totaled cars for years and it looks like you are on the right track . just make sure everything is perfectly lined up before you start welding and keep checking it to make sure it stays there as you weld it . looks like a pretty good job . the only thing i would have done different is replace the entire right quarte panel .

    Yeah, I've been checking all my measurements as many times as possible. I've had my 98 Firebird parked right outside the barn for reference. All exterior measurements have been kept within an 1/8" tolerance.
    I originally planned on replacing the entire right quarter, but, after taking in account the minimal damage to the front of the quarter and the door opening tolerances remaining intact, I made the call to seam it at the location you see. This also avoided having to remove the fiberglass sail panel.
    Hope to get my mini tubs installed very soon! I will keep you all updated.
