  9. Yesterday I took the overdrive to Brian so he can work on it when he gets time. Then I went to the shop to sand on the body. Milkweed and Steve showed up. A little help sanding is really nice to get. Thanks guys. The weather is quite warm for this time of year so we pushed her out into the sun to work.

    After blocking she wasent quite ready so another coat was in order (hopefully only one more) so today I will finish up sanding and spray one more coat.

  12. lol.
    Thanks Tim.
  13. Yesterday Milkweed and I finished sanding the body and then I removed the rear fenders again for the millionth time. Then I reprimed her for the last time. Hopefully we got all the tiny little flaws this time. With another guide coat she will be ready for wet sanding after a couple weeks of drytime to shrink. All the small parts are ready to wet sand except the front fenders that have fallen behind a little.

    Damn, It looks like SLC is having a real Christmas. Weather Channel tells me your overnight temps are down in the mid teens. That and and that cool OverDrive setup really makes for a real Christmas for you Kipp. Your temps are colder than ours, which must make plans for laying on the top coats pretty iffy right now. I hope you've had your shop's wood stove fired up so you can get the OD installed. I'm anxious to see the setup all put together. Without question, yours is one of the best builds and postings on the site. We appreciate your project very much.
    Best Regards and good luck with all your endeavors, KB.

    Are you done yet? We have a full Hotrod schedule in 2015 you know...

    Let me know if you need my help!
  22. Thanks for the compliments Waynos.
    Thanks as always KB. I have had the overdrive done for a couple of weeks but between Christmas and catching a cold my progress has slowed for a couple of weeks but I am back at it. I was waiting for brian to post picks of the machine work before I posted pics of the overdrive installed but he has been swamped in the shop so no pics yet. But here she is installed. The weather has been unseasonably warm until the last week. But the cold is finally here with a vengeance. I have access to a heated paint booth so paint will get done in the next couple of weeks. Good luck and stay in touch. Later Kipp.

  23. Thanks Kris. She will be on the road by spring if it Kills me. When your dad gets the block back from the machine shop he may need some help assembling the engine so I can get her in befote installing the body.

    I may have missed it but I'm curious on how you routed your gas filler tube ?

    Well it was 35 degrees and raining @ 7am this morning, nothing good about 35 degree rain. Needles to say, rain on top of ice is treacherous. I shot "Semisweet" in March when it was in the mid 40s outside. By the time we got 3/4 the way through a coat the exhaust fans in the booth had extracted all the warm air in 50x50 foot shop (37,000 cu ft) and the temp would drop into the 50s, the next thing that happened was the flash time really slowed down and sags started showing up on the vertical surfaces. I needed to lighten up the lay down for the rest of the coat, you can't just stop in the middle of a coat. Then I had to wait for the entire shop to warm back up before starting another coat. Timing is everything with these urethane paints and their chain molecules, having half the coat flashed and half still green is kind of a scary proposition, not knowing the effect on the outcome. So watch your booth temperature. Anyway that's my experience, I hope yours will come out well.
    Best Regards and good luck with all your endeavors, KB.

    Really nice! By spring you'll be ready for more than the road ...... most likely magazine features and the show circuit.
  29. Thanks. One can only hope for magazine coverage (RODDERS JOURNAL) maby. But she will be driven. Hot rod hill climb here we come.
