Double canister for sure thanks for the concern.
For the first time doing body work I'm happy so far.
Rear side glass is in and I'm HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY.
Been busy working on hot rod and working on house projects. Floor is starting to back in car for final time I hope sometimes stuff gets missed and out it comes again hope that is not the case.
Shot a little gray sandy primer today my leave or paint black not sure yet. Been making a list of little odds and ends needed to finish car.
Summer is coming and up go the garage doors and the volume on the 50s music.
Went with black and varnished the back of the seat.
Things are pretty slow around here but we are doing good hope all is well with everybody.
Just put the rubber seal on rear window and the anti rattlers on the rear side windows for final time.
Window is in and all sealed up ready for the rain.
Tried my hand at upolstrury today and to my surprise came out pretty nice.
Finished the second seat today.
Nice job chop job, indicative of your whole project.
It took some time but I finally remembered how these rear panels went in.
First time outside in awhile.
Lookin' good @chop job . Great attention to the details.
Changed my dash from the 33 Pontiac to a more traditional 32.
they say "change is good" often
Doors are now metal finished and primed next will be upholstered panels for the doors.
New 32 dash was not flat had to make a relief cut in bottom flange which gave it just enough flex to sit flat. Will finish up tomorrow and mount in car. And before you ask about speed O I'm running a GPS and will mount somewhere else.
@chop job...how progress?
Been gone for a while my brother was kind enough to do all the wiring for me I'm only good at changing light bulbs. I just finished making bracket for GPS which I will use as the Speedo. By the way awesome job on the wiring Wes!
Starting to creep up on me today I put in the top cover for gas tank and the back floor. Installed the gas filler tube and hooked up a vent hose.
Well the back half of car is all buttoned up for now and today I put the dash in all looks good am real HAPPY with the way it turned out.
Made some A post covers and made new window locks I fell no need to open. I also replaced window felt.
Did some more today added floor panels and sill plate.
Added the other
belt on passenger side and added a little art work by battery disconnect.
Trial fit the rest of the floor today all is good. Shifter linkage is on and working real good.
Made new radiator tubes today much more better.
Been working on a aluminum shroud for the last three days now and finally finished it today.
Things are going real slow around here lately. Mounted a mirror on visor.
