Thank you, I was hoping you were a roller and brush guy, but your prep recommendations
are helpful.

Well I got the old tin and stair treads ripped out and removed the dash. Hmmm, no shortage of rust. Probably leaked from the day it was built. We seem to be missing about an inch of the windshield support post and one tiny hole in the dash....we'll get that patched up and graphed in a piece.
Found a few defects as far as assembly goes....must have been a Friday build.

I so thought I would be so much further than I am, work seems to be slowing me down again.
Well I managed to get the windshield post welded and painted, also got some rust paint on the dash. Washed the plastic parts, repainted the heater, brake and clutch pedals, shifter and some other bits and pieces, painted the stairs for now. Sanded and cleared the shifter boot ring, and cleaned up other odds and sods. Got some of my aluminum cut, fit and installed. Still have a few pieces to cut for the stair treads. The air ride seat needs to be hooked up and a little cleaning, still have to swap the cover/foam from the pass side to the drivers side.
My daughter bought me a new key chain…apparently a must.

Pretty crappy picture taker, but y'all like pics.

Stairs finished...

Tango, finished my fuel pedal...a little cheezier than yours. Cut the grip tape out with a razor knife, cut the aluminum with a table saw, fine tuned it with a cut off wheel, file, and emery cloth.
