So I got all the patching done, finished the reinforcements, cleaned and sanded and shot two coats of 2 part epoxy primer and 2 coats of single stage urethane paint on the bottom of the car and inside the cab. The car is now up at the paint shop and he says it will take one month to block it out, do a couple of guide coats then 2 coats of colour and 4 of clear. Should only be 3 weeks now before I start re assembly. The first 2 pics are after the epoxy primer, adding the seamsealer and before paint.

The car is back in my garage now and I have started re-assembly, the colour balance is wrong on my camera and the paint looks lighter and bluer than it really is.

A car is a hole in the air, suspended there by four rubber doughnuts which you can not eat.
Into this hole, you throw money, which you will never see again.

Thanks guys, the colour is actually is from a Jeep, it is called Anvil Grey, Chrysler did something good for a change :D

My camera is screwed, this what the car really looks like, I found a pic of a Z in the same shade. I just love this colour!

That just a piece of bent sheet metal you did to mount the brank bias adjuster, or is that a bought bracket?

Got the windshield in today with the help of string line for a the weed wacker, very smooth. The dash is sort of in, just a couple of screws incase it has to come back out.

Thank you, I appreciate it, $10 grand?! That's insane, $1650.00 here in southern Ontario.
