Wow, almost 3 years since the last update!
Still have it and finally got to the head of the line, at least for a while.
So, about a month and a half ago I drug the car out of the garage and took it to my new shop. (*shameless plug* JCARS ) Figured I would be a little more motivated to work on it with some elbow room. (and not covering my garage and the cars in it in a layer of dust!) So anyway, I have been plugging away on getting the bodywork done and prepped for paint. Managed to get all the patches in the previous post welded in. Spent way too much time bodyworking the dents and dealing with oilcans all over the place
, but have it pretty much licked. Here is what is done so far,
Front fenders. Had to do some patches in the bottom to fix so rust. Not too bad though
Drivers door. All I have to say on this is it was a nightmare!
And the roof. This ranked pretty close to the drivers door. Ended up adding another support bar to help stiffen the sheet metal.
The quarters and front valence are in the final blockout stage, the hatch and pass door are bodyworked and ready for initial high build application. Hopefully by the end of next weekend, those are 100%. Still need to sandblast the hood and get that in 2k primer, then do any necessary bodywork. After that, I have a small section on the lower windshield that needs cancer sugery along with a couple small sections on the lower rockers just in front of the rear wheels. May be able to get that done with a little luck. Next would be to yank the engine/trans and sandblast the engine compartment then paint! Maybe another 3 years and she'll be ready.
