Very nice work. A lot more rust hiding than I thought there was. I guess the vandal(s) kind of helped you out, even though you didn't want to have to dig that deep into such a nice looking car. The engine looks good, and I like how the air cleaner conversion worked out. Any more info on it?

What modifications did you do so the "paper" element would fit?

I trimmed the ring on the bottom piece down to about a 1/4 so the element just sits inside it. And removed the whole section from the top the holds the mesh. I did have to tack weld the round top part to the cross piece as I ground a little too much off. But the element fits just right inside.

Ok thanks. Didn't know it was that simple to do. I have a Brazilian filter assembly that I haven't really found a filter element that would fit it, other than from a 71-74 Pinto.

Moe is back home from being painted. But of course, after I dug into him a little deeper, I found more rust issues in the floors. So new floor inserts, and the right-side kick panel needed repair. Fortunately, my friend Daniel Hood is very good at that kind of thing.

I am sorry about the paint stripper incident, but that is going from a decent Squareback to one that is going to be a truly nice car. Keep the pics and updates coming.

Agreed. With the new floor sections, and the repairs to the lower rear kick panels, it'll be a new car once it's put back together. Cool
