I really enjoyed the pics of the cars at Shasta. My hat is off to the people
who put the time and effort into the cars. Some stunning examples of the two
things needed to make these cars shine: Time and money.
I have been doing mostly the former the last four months taking my 67 2000
apart. Today was the day I removed all of the parts and panels from the
place where the car is. The only things left are the body and
engine/powertrain. It's really a shell now.
Next weekend I am going to put the car up on jack stands to drop the drive
shaft, drop the gas tank and pull the engine and transmission. Following
Victor's advice, I removed the 14 bolts holding the body to the frame. They
were all pretty easy although for some reason, the two in the foot wells
gave us the most problems and I broke off the one on the passenger side. I
am hopeful there is enough of the bolt to grab and remove once the body is
off. July 22nd is the day that the better part of the frame will see the
light of day for the first time in 34 years.
So it is getting there. Here is my question: I am an apartment dweller and
do not have a place to keep the parts or to put my car back together. I am
working with another person who is restoring a car to rent an industrial bay
where we can keep both cars, but we are on a waiting list.
Has anyone rented a workspace or garage space to have a place to work on
their cars? Are there places that have workbays for rent? How about just
renting someone's garage?
Food for thought,
