So by the end of this week, with the speed that you have been going, it should be ready for primer and paint.

Oh, nothing specific - I was just impressed with your progress. I'm dying to put a Cummins into one of my dad's old trucks: '52 M37, '68 W300, or '6? D600. I almost have him talked into one!

Good work though - keep the pictures coming!

Wow Leonard. Impressive to get that thing torn down so quick. Hope going back together is just as easy for you when ready. Looks like that poor old car needed it though. Should make for a nice daily driver once you're done with it. Good luck man.
