The 1969 El Camino that was first featured on this site back in September is finally back from the media-blaster. It is currently at Murphy Rod & Custom to have the various rust holes repaired and to have the drive train installed.
It will be a while before I get my mitts on it, but it is good hands with Kelly. Better hands with Kelly than with myself at this point because there is no way I can work the kind metal magic that he and Josh can.
These two pictures show the car up on the rotisserie so that Josh and Kelly can reach all the hard to reach places without them actually being hard to reach. The car is going to need pans and a new bed, and a few other minor rust repairs, but even after the removal of 43 years of gunk and grime, the car still looks to be in a little better than average shape.
After Murphy Rod & Custom works their magic on it and I give it a splash of paint, then it will look much better than average.
