So how long is the wait now for you to paint a car?
Heater core replaced today...also sacrificed the alternator to be able to remove it. The bolt was seized inside the alternator hole and the head broke off when I tried to loosen it. Engine compartment disassembly has begun!
Yikes, never had to do one like that, thankfully. That's takin' it off the hard way! The car is looking fantastic Adam, you do excellent work my man. I love 67/68 duece's, can't wait to see it finished.
Thanks! I'm hoping to have this one wrapped up in the next two months or so.
Hey Adam if you haven't already reattached the rocker moldings, I'd appreciate a picture of what kind of clips they use. Thanks
I can do that. They are still in the bag ...will grab a photo in a bit.
Here ya go Dave...
Thanks Adam...I'm assuming those attach from the back?
They screw into the rocker panel and the trim snaps in from the top. The rocker trim is then screwed to the bottom side of the rocker
Spit shining parts...
Heads and exhaust manifolds are at the machine shop getting worked on. Lots of work to do before I can bolt it all back together.
Heads and exhaust manifolds came back yesterday. I worked a little later than normal today to get the block put together so I could throw some paint on it. I still have to blast the manifolds and rebuild the carb, but mostly everything else is ready to bolt on.
Almost ready to fire...just need plugs and wires. Last thing in the engine compartment will be painting the air cleaner.
Looks like fresh out of the factory! What black paint did you use to get the correct sheen?
