Default Hopefully getting a shell together

I havent started the Tempest rebuild thread yet because Im trying to see if I will have a good shell to start with. We found a guy just north of Toronto here that will hopefully fix the rusted out parts of the floor, etc. This was the only body that I could find.
We dropped the car off at the guys place and I guess that well find out if hes a fluke or a flake. Theres not much in between. Either way, hes the only guy that we found that will still do this kind of stuff around here, for a decent price. He seems like a good guy. Wish me luck.

I hope you don't mind. I rotated and cropped your picture to better show the car. I hope it works out and you get the project going. Have you picked out paint colors yet?

This looks like a fairly solid and great candidate for the task.
Keep us posted.

Sorry had to mess with the image as well

Thanks, guys. I keep trying to post these pictures rightly but they always seem to end up sideways.

I thought it was your car wanting to head south away from that white stuff!

Got that right. It was warm for a few days, but then right back to the cold. Sometimes it seems like spring will never arrive.

Well, Im waiting on the guy that was supposed to have my shell ready weeks ago. I kind of expected it. A lot of the guys that do this kind of stuff are not normal.
Supposed to have it back this weekend. Fingers crossed. Im going through all my stuff and it boggles my mind just how many parts and fasteners and things I have. Plus the wrecked car for parts. I can hardly wait to start putting this thing together.
