I though I would post some pics of my car on its way back to the street 
 
the day i got it 
 
 

after tare down and paint removal 
 

 
Only rust holes I found so far
 
Looking for a few patch panels if someone got some 

 
Front Nose gone have to replace the hole thing 
 
someone poprivited the bumper bracket on. Plus the spare tire tray is rust out. And the front apron is bent up pretty bad.
 
 
I still got lots of work to do and if work does not pick up soon it will be a long time before i'm finished. I hate working for auto industry.

I'm sanding it down with a Dual action sander and it takes time plus now that its mine she gets mad at me for working on it lol. but its coming along, I did not get to work on it this weekend cause I left all the windows down on my 97 Grand am and had to pull all the seats and carpet out and clean it. I'm putting it back together now.

Good luck with it Pont.  I know projects like this are pretty time consuming, but when your're done, it'll look great.  I just wish I had the time to rebuild a couple of old cars my father has, but I barely seem to have enough time to sleep

I restored one of those once! I think mine was in better shape. I had a '60 with the 1100cc motor. Completely stock! Painted it black and white! Wish I had kept it!

a friend of mine named Thomas who, until a month ago moving to Boston, lived about Two blocks away from me owned this vehicle. It's a Superbug with the extra back space for passengers. the paint job is mostly orignal with touch-ups, and it still has a tremendous amount of covered rust, along with problems here and there...but it does run quite well. The paint job, although kinda funny, does stick out and does personify his character a lot. he wants to get it fixed up, but this being his first year of college coming up, I doubt he'll have any money anytime soon.

After a year and a half that bug has probably rusted away!

I'm here I work on the Bug a little each week not much cause the wife got a better job. She is not the manger of the local Domino's pizza. Which means all my free time on the weekend is spent with her in the day and watching a 9,7 and 4 year old. Ok I only have to really watch the 4 year old shes into everything. And money has been tight since my job went from 16.30 a hour to only 12.40. Heck Ill be luck to have a job this time next year. When we get our tax return I will get to get some more stuff to work on the car this is a list of the stuff Ill buy then.

Which come to a total of 150.00 plus or mines a few bucks. And  here is a link for updates that I have done.
