    After a quick sandwich for lunch, we starting hanging parts in his paint booth. It sure would be nice to have one of these!









    The plan was to shoot all of these parts today and them finish off both sets of doors tomorrow and the top side to the hood and decklid. Now this was a first for me. Randy gave me a few pointers on how to use the gun and I started on the decklid inside. A little nervous at first. After completing it, I moved onto the hood inside. By the time I finished the first fender, I was getting more of a hang of it. Randy actually left the booth, figuring I was getting better and would likely do better without an audience. I put one coat on the hood and decklid and two coats on the fenders and small parts.

    All done, for today:










    Moved all of the parts out to the heated area of the shop for overnight and cleaned up our mess, then home for a shower and dinner!

    Tomorrow, wipe down all the doors, figure out how we're going to hang them, the finish shooting

    Thanks for looking in!

    This morning we started at about 7:30 and got back into finishing off our priming project. Today's plan was to finish priming the top side of my decklid and hood and complete both of my doors as well as Randy's.

    First up, we put the decklid and hood back into the booth:





    I wiped done both parts and mixed up the primer. Now to finish the tops:





    After they flashed off and were dry to handle, we moved them back out to the shop and brought in the doors, my 57 doors and Randy's 55 doors:

    Once the doors were all wiped down, we mixed up more primer, then used a small touch-up gun and sprayed as much as we could on the inside of the inner and outer panels. Then I finished off both sides of mine and Randy did his:

    The last thing we did for the day was to move all of the dry parts back into the booth and left the doors and my hood and decklid in the shop to further dry. All done by 1:00 pm:







    Tomorrow after work, we'll move those parts back into the booth and then I hope to bring mine back home next weekend.

    Thanks for looking in! Have a great week!

    Out to the shop early this morning to continue working on cleaning up the edges of the floor. Lots of grinding, cutting and drilling out spot welds:

    Lower dash / toe panel edges:






    Driver's side rocker:




    Cleaned Up:


    LHS Inner wheel house:






    RHS Inner wheel well:


    Passenger side rocker:




    All of the cutoffs:


    After lunch, cleaned up the shop, and since it was sunny out, we out and picked up all of the parts we primed two weeks ago and brought them home. Next up is to put the doors back on for reference for rocker repairs, but I hope to get the body out into the driveway for some sandblasting clean up before moving it from the rotisserie to the frame for floor pan install!

    You planning to put in the floor and then patch the other areas?? It would be easier to clean up the bad areas before putting in the floor not making patches but just prepping them you'll have more access.

    Charlie, never done this before, so I'm taking pointers. I'm thinking of putting the body down onto the frame with the floor in place and then I can get a better idea of the repairs needed along the wheel house area, the inner panel of the back seat wall, down by the toe board to front body hinge pillar areas. Once that is done, I can measure and make some templates, then fab up up repair panels.The body would come back off for those repairs and then back to the frame and floor for what could be a final fit, then secure if for final welding. I'll likely buy the inner wheel houses. I send a request for a quote to Cars Inc over in your neck of the woods. We're heading done there for Easter and might try to pick up some parts while I'm there. Any thoughts or suggestions?
