Got the roof and quarter panels sanded and epoxy primed.
Now I can drop the body back on the chassis and try to figure out how to get gas and oil in the tanks
Got this body down to 85lbs

Made a jib crane to lift and install and remove the body as needed by myself and swing it out of the way.

Now I can finish the gas and oil tank.
I had no idea how I was going to fill the dang tanks.
Now I feel like I can start knocking some stuff off the list.
