Side view

Since this photo, all the tires are off.  Rear bumper has been removed.  Most of the leaves cleaned out of engine compartment.  Nose badge, speedometer, fuel gauge [ marked 8 57 ], VDO clock with spade connector, and washer pump removed.  Wiper assembly would be also pulled except I can't get a screwdriver into the back where the last screw is, need to buy a shorter screwdriver.

Can see on the driver fender a giant bubble.  Might be rust or the bad paint job from Maaco.  There are smaller pin-prick bubbles in other areas along with cracks in the paint.  Rust in the spare tire well, both rear lower quarters, and engine area under battery.  Going to strip it all the way down and pull the body off the pan.  Then cough up the money to media blast it to find all the bad metal.
