A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

Got one done. Two to go.


Lessons learned:


More welding= more grinding
More tacking= less grinding
Body saw is my new best friend
Aftermarket floor pans donít fit like the one you cut out
Very time consuming to get to fit like you want it to. In and out, in and out
Seam sealer is expensive

Went to replace the body bushings on the PHX and project has a minor detour. #5 bushing on both sides are pretty rotted. #6 was already repaired with a thru bolt inside the trunk. Going to pull the body off the frame to repair...

It's too bad that the factory did not figure a better way to do this
