Thanks for the good luck, progress on the Coupe is slow but steady right now, waiting on some sheet metal patch panels. I will try to get some new pics as soon as I can & get them posted. How is your Coupe comming along?.

Sadly on hold with my coupe. Gotta replace the tranny in the Tahoe... Daily driver takes some precedence at the moment.

Started drilling out spot welds on the rear tail light panel earlier this week. Today I got out the sawzall & started to remove the panel. If all goes well I should be able to get it completely out by next weekend.

Default Re: 69 Coupe progress pics

Well after a week & 1/2 I drilled out all 60-70 spot welds holding in the tail light panel in. I only got to work on the Coupe on my days off when my wife was working. With my trusty sawzall I cut out the major part of the tail light panel, then wrangled the remaining pieces out. Now for a trip out to Lockport to Macs Antique Auto Parts as they are only about 1 hour west of me to pick up a new one so I do not have to pay for oversize shipping. I will have my wife e-mail the pic to Jeff(1990LX) so he can post it here for me. Now it is time to run the 240V line so I could use my welder to start putting new pieces on to the Coupe. As the car sits now it is all primed red, except for the passengers side door.

First off, thanks goes out to Jeff for posting my pics, second, I ordered my new tail light panel today. Spent a couple hours in the garage today, ground down what was left of the spot welds after removing the old tail light panel, removed the old rear bumper brackets & found some rot through on the l/s trunk floor section so that will need to be replaced also. I will do that when I cut off the old l/s quarter panel to replace it & the outer wheel house.

Recieved the tail light panel yesterday & did a test fit this morning. It fits pretty good. It will need a little tweaking for a very good fit, then on to welding it in.

The tank has been empty for several years, plus it is comming out before I do any welding.

Finished drilling out the spot welds for the l/s trunk floor & started the removal process. The cutoff wheel & the air chisel are comming in handy for this part of the sheet metal replacement. Hopefully a few more hours in the garage & I will have the old l/s trunk floor removed & be able to test fit the replacement piece. Once I get the old piece out I will get Jeff to post a couple pics for me here.
