The Jalopy Journal
You could wait years if you wanted. No problem. Many newer used cars are buffed and they may have been painted years earlier.
You should have no problems except the paint will be harder. As a side note, we buffed as soon as we could in the collision shop because of time...
Looks great! Oughta really shine in the sun!
Man! That’s going to be awesome.
I purchased a QUICK JACK and love it.
It’s so nice to not sit on the floor and be able to do body work...
Well.... we have a 29 sedan. At the time, I really wanted a 30 or 31 as I liked the smoother cowl and more flush front door seam, but I’ve come to...
A few years ago, my buddy had his wagon sprayed with dark red tinted urethane primer. As time went on, it turned a BEAUTIFUL pink because of the...
Man! Thanks for doing all this experimentation and sharing your secrets with us. Hopefully you hit on the MAJIC rust elixir!
I’ve been spraying for a long time. My time and materials are way too costly to cut corners and save a few bucks on grease and wax remover.
I did mine by creating a simple wooden buck from plywood, matching the rear curve. I left the new gutter length longer than needed for the bending...
Thanks for sharing your tips and tricks. You are a man of great detail and I really enjoy the way you describe each new part. I really like your...
Great job so far! How much bigger, ( if any) are these cabs compared to an A cab. I know I’m too big for an A, but would love one.
Congratulations. That car has the look. You chose well.
Great start to a hot rod.
Get them tools bought and get going, enjoy and let us follow when you get to building!
Enjoyed reading the whole build thread. Glad your still finding some time to work on it.
I want to do a metal T someday.
Great read. I now know I can’t afford one!
Going to Vintage Torque Fest tomorrow![ATTACH]
Love the 2x4 cribbing.
12 inches high and very stable.
As others have stated, perfect for panel replacement and fitment as the suspension is...
Very cool coupe!
Has your original vision changed for it now that’s it’s 20 some years later?
Wow! What a great job saving that chop. Thanks for sharing all your hard work.
Just heard tonight at a cruise gathering ( with social distancing of course), I talked to a fella who said the GG event was dependent on the Iowa...
My buddy is a rep and last I heard, it was still a go.
Could change anytime though during this weird time.
As a side note, Iowa is opening up more...
Enjoying the updates.
Just like eating an elephant, little bites will get it done.
Very simple and cool. I love that look. Nice job!
Cool! Hiding in Iowa somewhere?
Wow! That is good looking!
I want a roadster!
Very cool find!
I’d love to cruise that all summer.
Like others have said, your detail work is outstanding!
Love the whole package.
I’ve fixed and painted 3. Used pc7, used fiberglass body filler, and used a “special” 2 part steering wheel repair stuff. All of them had cracks...
