looks like a good project and a very good car to build up. im not sure if this will help with your 6 but it did with my engine swap - to make it easier to get the motor in/out i cut out the metal infront of where the radiator is and made it into a bolt in panel. it depends how many times you'll have it in and out of course though...

Here are some new pictures. Not the best quality. I am in the process of removing all the old paint from the bodyshell. Most part of it is now down to bare metal, also the underside of the car. Then I start welding in some new panels. I am going to change the forward section of the inner wing on both sides in the front, complete frontpanel, complete back panel and rear lower quarterpanel on both sides.

I am using a eletrical scraper to remove the undersealant, and a orbital sander to remove the paint. I finish off with sand blasting.
