Time to cut it up!

Rust in right rear fender. Fenders removed.

After disassembly, the Cuda took a trip through the blast booth and then got a good coat of epoxy primer.

View of Cuda body from above.

Overall, the body is in reletively good condition but will need some rust repair in the usual areas around the fenders.

Bracing in trunk area. Bracing in main body.

Bracing is in stalled to keep the body from twisting or deforming while we work on it.

Body with entire floor removed.

Hmmm... maybe that rust was worse than we thought...

Floor on dolly.

Actually, we just decided to ditch the old floor. A new Art Morrison frame will be going under the body and we will build a custom floor over that.
