    I did that 66 as a side job at the time. That car also went together fairly easy which is unusual. Now I have a real shop and business which I bought and moved into July 2018. I currently have several body jobs in line so it might be a while before I would be able to get to yours (probably 6 months). 100-150 hours is about normal for extensive rust repair. Body work is another 100 hours or so give or take. Paint work, I ship it out to a paint shop to shoot the color. It ends up being cheaper. I do everything based on time and materials as there is no realistic way to quote restoration work.

    Just to give you an idea of what I have in line right now that needs to get done..
    72 Chevelle metal work done ready for blaster
    69 Charger in body work now
    69 Nova waiting to come in for metal work
    69 Chevelle that needs to be stripped and repainted.

    I have a business page on Facebook Mid Atlantic Muscle Cars

    Hi, Greatly appreciate everything you've mentioned below, thank you.
    * I have a 4 spd (floor) - Do I need to detach the shifter ?
    * Is there a diagram in any manual that shows the locations of the 10 body mount bolts ? I checked Fisher Body manual and was surprised it wasn't mentioned there unless I missed it...
    Any other tips, pics or references to info I can find online or buy are highly appreciated

    Thank you,
    Lance

    I don't have anything in writing anywhere. Basically you need to disconnect everything attached to the chassis from the body (steering column, brake lines, parking brake cable, bumpers, fuel tank, fuse block bulkhead connector, body mount bolts..there are 10 on a 65-67. A 2 post lift is ideal to pick the body up and the most safe, but I have used 2 engine hoists to do it. One in the back and one hooked to the top of the cowl in from the side.
