Nice work Chuck! Always interested to follow your exploits.
Is there enough time to get it pinstriped before you leave for Denver?
Can't wait to see it all done.
Better quit posting and playing on the Interwebs and get busy!
I am looking forward to seeing it and meeting you in Denver.
Just got home with it and fixin' to get to work putting it back together.
Nick, set up with the pin striper on Saturday morning
In the continuing saga of the 67 convertible update, today I spent 8 hours installing Dynamat on the floor of the car before we put the carpet, console and seats back in. Love Dynamat product but now I have super sore thumb and fingers from cutting, fitting, smoothing, etc. I like to have all the holes filled after putting the large sheets in place so I do a lot of cutting and trimming and installing small pieces of a variety of shapes.
This is my second Dynamat installation having done my 67 Sport Wagon a year or so ago. For those who want to do a Dynamat installation I find Summit Racing has the best prices for the product. No one seems to sell Dyanmat in a roll or in large pieces but you can find pre cut kits for almost any car, floors, doors, trunk etc.
For this convertible installation I bought two Dynamat Door Kits of 12 sq ft each, $65.00 w/tax each from Summit. There are 4 pieces in each box 1' x 3'. I would have needed one more 12 sq ft box except I had some decent pieces left over from the Sport Wagon and a roll of another brand 18" x 5' and used it under the back seat. See the photo below. Installing bumpers, console, carpet, seats tomorrow and door panels on Friday. It is beginning to look like a finished car again.
Notice my air conditioned work space, tent and fan made the 97-99 degree heat bearable.
Probably one more update before we put it the trailer and head for Denver. I was going to drive to Denver but after the awesome (and expensive) paint job I don't want an 18 wheeler throwing rocks on me on I-25.
Left the original factory material on the trans hump as it was still stuck down well Leftover black material similar to Dynamat put down under the rear seat
and I was running out of Dynamat and did not want to spend another $65.
