I'm having the 69 GT rolling frame sandblasted. I have done extensive work to this darn thing including cutting out the firewall from my parts car to the roller runner welding it in (cuz someone put in a 3.8 buick with a 350 auto.) Completely rebuilding the engine from the parts car. Still need to rebuild the tyranny. I've had both cars for 16+ years. The runner is very solid. Hardly any bondo on the trouble spots, magnet checked. Putted a nasty dent from the driver side front fender recently.

I hope to be on here alot more, any help is appreciated as I don't have any knowledge on message boards very much...and where to start threads and whatnot... s

Right now the parts car is in the backyard under a harbor freight portable garage. I had planned putting in some sort of garage back there but I haven't yet pulled the trigger. Plan was get the garage up and chop up the parts car as its in rough rough shape. No bondo in it tho so ill save everything and hang them up and organize parts while I'm working on the runner.
Where I live in pocatello only 1 gt runs around Its yellow. So far I've only seen 2 that just sit. One of which lives a couple blocks away from me.

It looks like you have a bit of patching to do. You don't seem to have much bondo left.
