      definitely looking forward to some updates on a heavy build.... [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      looking to install a cage also, so we're in similar stages in our builds.
      I managed to find a pipe bender that I can use w/my hydraulics(porta power),to help things along...
      on a side note, I get to see the Leafs when they come to town, which happens not very often...I'm excited about that too..
      atlast....hockey season is here...

      I just stumbled accross this and it is awesome that you're bringing this thing back to life! where are you getting your quarter panels and fenderwells, and the rest of your metal, for that matter? I have a rusty '81 Rocco, and if I keep her I'm gonna need some new metal.

      most of the parts took me years to find, little shops that had them tucked away in dark corners, but i was able to special order some from a place called CrossCanada and they got them from some place in Europe which i used to have a link for but was never willing to pay more for shipping than the parts were worth

      well really not much to show so no photos today, did some more work on the roof still do not have the lines quite right. also found some more rust so a little more work for me to do on the under side of the car, spare tire well needs some work, and the same goes for some other things i will have to box in. spoke with my cage fabricator this weekend also told me he wont be able to take it on till the end of the year so that give me time for all the little things and test fitting of all my parts.
      but sadly i will not be able to finish up the under side till the cage is in.

      My rocco looks very similar as far as the rust underneath... Where do I locate the rocker replacement panels? Is there anywhere to find front fenders?
      Killer Job man, lots of respect!!

      well there is progress, i actually found time to do some work over the long weekend. finished the drivers side wheel wheels and they are now nicely coated with por-15 does it ever look good, also did some more patching under the car but ran out of time to finish up the rear valence but give it another day and i should have most everything patched up and the car can come back lower to the ground for the finishing of the roof..

      Just came across this. GREAT job. I have a '78 that is in rotisserie at this time, but my restoration seems to have taken a back seat to just about everything that comes along. Good luck and I look forward to seeing it's progress.
