spent the last few days adjusting gaps, replaced the drivers door pins and bushings. They were completely blown out, fight me the whole way. finally have the doors and fenders lined up real nice. Going to try and get the whole car primed and blocked this week and try to get it painted next week depending on the weather. few pics.

Thanks John, The interior is all there, just have to clean it up and install it with a new dash pad. I'm not 100% sure on engine trans combo yet I have a 307 200r4 in a running/driving delta 98, or a rebuilt low mileage 350 short block, would need a set of heads and rebuild a th350, or a 455 th400 low mileage but has been sitting in a trailer for 20 years. I'm leaning towards pulling the 307 200r4 and just put a nice exhaust on and drive the wheels off the car, the 98 gets 24mpg. I think that would be the best cruiser set up. my dad doesn't want the 307 because the gear selector wont line up with the od trans. lol. the engine trans selection is ultimately his decision because it is on his bill. If the weather stars cooperating I can get my part finished soon then paint your roadster.

Found a couple dents in the roof that would show through the vinyl, got them knocked out, spent a few hours masking and prepping the car. finally have the whole car in primer. lots of blocking to do. 98% of the spots should block out. I may have to spot putty a few places and reprime later. looks like we are going with the 350/ alum intake mild cam and some headwork, with a th350 few pics how she looks in primer.

Ok, Im back on track with the car. I blocked the whole car, then reprimed it and blocked it again. took it out side for some fresh air. Also so I could use the sun to find any spots I missed. Scrubbed the entire garage. I finished masking the car last night. It is getting painted today, I will post progress pics as I go.


Washed the car down to get all the dust off of it.










wish me luck.

Its Done!!!! Well, painted anyway.

Sprayed a coat of sealer. came out pretty nice.


First coat of base.




second,




I put 4 coats of base and a drop coat to even the metallics. here are some pics of the clear just after it was sprayed. It is going to flow out like crazy. it is slightly peeled in the pics, but i might end up cutting the clear off the floor. lol







I need to work on my ventilation some.
