#5 1964 Plymouth Belvedere

Recommended Posts

Well, had to stop on the '60 Starliner before it got kicked "through the goal posts of life.Going to start on #5, Lindberg 1964 Plymouth Belvedere. Looks like its going to be a pain to open the doors and trunk. BUT, going to keep it up until I get good at it!20190806_212255.thumb.jpg.c19112521d147e5755502c17f69080b7.jpg

Cutting the trunk out I knocked off a part that sticks out.Glued it back on and reinforced both sides with a small piece of plastic channel

Opening up panels is nothing to be afraid to try, yeah thin panels break, no problem, keep going and make repairs like you already did as you go, it'll turn out awesome I'm sure!

Cool! When opening doors one needs to calculate the depth of the interior vs the door.  Especially on old Johans!  I remember cutting open VW Rabbit doors for a friend (he just had the body at a club meeting where I was demonstrating cutting open panels).  He got home only to discover that the floor was higher than the door bottoms!

Yup. Add reinforcing the rocker panels and you have alot of fabricating to do
