  Now, we continue on with the Back Seat Area. Finish masking the headliner, Front. Not as hard, but has to be masked. Masking the headliner took a long time. Most of the day yesterday, and a good bit of today.... But, we progress. Prep the seating area, Seam seal around the wheel wells, and clean up for primer. remove the old door lace. New lace will be installed after painting.

Comment:
  These corners are prone to rust if driven in rain. So, just in case, I desided to use some seam sealer in this area, like I did under the car in this area.

62's Back Seat Area 02

  Not much done this weekend. Had to work Saturday, and had a function to go to on Sunday. But, I was able to get a few hours in this weekend. Vic came over to help me remove the rear axel, and remove all the break hardware. All of that is going to be replaced including new lines, hardware, and hoses. Front too, but that is a later date. I also started to clean up the axel for painting, but I am going to need more time. All those years under the car and never cleaned up. Baked on like glue.

  I will see if I can do little by little after work during the end of the week. I am off friday, hopefully no rain and nothing else going on. For now, that's it. See ya next time. Chow!.
