That'd be great if you could find out, thanks a lot
Stripped both doors over the weekend, no less than 10 layers of paint on both of them, drivers door is fairly straight, the passenger door has had more hit than the beatles though. time to get the slide hammer out and pull it into shape!
Made a stand to hang the doors on this morning before work. I'll make on for the front fenders and the hood too eventually.
Thats it, every panel stripped to bare metal and primed, now to start knocking some of them back into shape. My spray booth is trashed at the moment so I have a big job cleaning that up too! happy saturday guys
Looking good. I think I hate stripping more than any other part of prepping the car for paint and it always seems to take me the longest.
Nice build .Is it hard to get parts over there for those cars. Or do you have have them shipped over from the states?
If you have any old full size Chevy's (or any make for that matter) rotting away over there, take a look at the hoods. BITD I cut a section out of another hood to make my own cowl...(can't remember exactly what car it was, but something like a Caprice or Impala, maybe even a Chevelle) and welded it onto my hood. It had natural raised edges along the sides and front similar to a cowl hood. I just added a small support brace underneath at the rear to hold it up at the back. Pretty amateur, but it worked for the clearance I needed and was free. Sorry I don't have better pics of it but you can get an idea from these...
Bought everything I need from classic industries. Freights bit of a killer though
Picked up a pair of seats today. Be nicer than the bent outta shape stock ones
Whe I built mine even in the states I had to adapt from other cars (Chevelles.Nova,etc) And I have a friend who owns a Muscle car supply place . It help to also grow up with these cars.
