With much of the car documented and all possible factory markings accounted for, it was time to start putting the thing back together. This can be very intimidating at first, but once I got going it went pretty well. It does take a while to get stuff accomplished.

At the point from here I had finished the red-oxide underneath and painted the engine compartment black. I replicated the factory color overspray on the undercarriage which turned out nicely. I even marked the radiator support with a red markal paint stick like it was and painted over it. It is slightly visible, but I know it is there.

Here are a few snapshots taken during reassembly:
