Are you going to build the cage before painting? It'd suck to have a piece get dropped on a paint job that takes this much work.

I'm just making a sport-style cage that will just slide in and bolt to the floor. In a year or so I'll remove the body lift and then tie it directly into the frame.
I have the bender and hydro set-up.. just waiting on the dies to show up.....

It's getting close!!! Final coat of primer was shot yesterday. Wed and Thursday night we'll get the final blocking done and we should be shooting paint this coming Saturday.

Nope. IF we get it painted next weekend, we'll let it harden for a couple weeks before sanding and buffing. I'm not going to stick the trim back on it untill that happens.

We'll probably just get the doors assembled and hung and start installing some parts during those 2 weeks. I have several other items that need attention in the mean time while the paint is getting hard enough to sand.

MSD box, new wires and plugs, new carb, spool and nodular center section, and a new gussetted 9" housing are all sitting there waiting to be installed.

Leaning on the last weekend in April or the 1st weekend in May before it sees the sand.

I might have missed it (and I'm too lazy to go back and see) but are you keeping it black?

It's back in Black



I'll take 2 weeks off and let it harden while I work on other little projects for it.

After we got the majority of the paint on it a couple weeks ago, we decided a little natural warm sunlight would be good for it. And it was suffering from cabin fever- so we rolled it outside for a breath of fresh air. I was a proud Papa- so I took some pics....
