now where did this go................................?

Got the car back from the painter yesterday morning and today I started putting all the big parts and trim pieces back on the car. I need to finesse the mounting holes for the windshield a little to make it fit better. They are angled a little too much so the windshield will not lay flat in the bottom seal retainer. It looks like I just need to file a little off the back sides of the mounting holes and it should drop right in.
The paint looks good, I'm happy with the colors. Tried to get a couple shots outside in the light but we don't have much of that up here this time of year.

Body paint

Got to see the body painted and buffed out tonight. While I was down there we sprayed rubber undercoat in the wheel wells and trunk spatter paint on the hood and engine cover. I will have the car back in my garage this weekend.

paint in progress

The car is partialy painted!! Got to see the final colors today now that the trunk has been cleared and buffed. I'm really happy with the result. The white is not too bright and the red is a very close match to the carpet and pegasus decals that will be going on the car. The main body will probably be painted tomorow. I can't wait to get it home and start putting back together.

Got to see some paint on the car tonight. Ian, my painter called and wanted me to come down and eyeball the darts on the rear deck. Got them layed out in about an hour. Hard to do with all the curves going on back there. Darts will be red with a black pinstripe around them.

Whoa and Go

Mounted my shifter today, finaly got around to drilling the holes in the mounts I welded to the floor a long time ago. Should have drilled the holes before welding them on cuz it was a pain in the arse to get them drilled down that close to the floor but I was able to do it with a flex shaft mounted on my drill. I also built the mount and brackets for the hand brake today and it turned out great, Just need to drill the holes in the mount and center rib in the car and bolt it in.

Got my stuff from Fibersteel the other day so I went ahead and mounted the faux oil cooler grill. I think this will look a lot better than the molded in one on the body. Kinda spendy though.

'Bout time you did something.................

Finaly did something on the car today. I mounted the windshield wiper assy. and spatter painted the trunk and gas tank area up front. Not much I know but my painter is almost ready to take the car back after repairing his shop so I gotta get ready. There is only so much I can do until after paint though.
