  1. Update: had to make a console that gave me room over the transmission for a gas pedal, held the shifter and allowed me to have a radio. Then of course I had to make the cup holder.
  2. making new tail light lenses. these are just the prototypes, but the clear lens turned out great. The side lens lost a lot of color compared to what the mix looked like.
  3. Good point, all I have to do is learn to keep my mouth shut. It hasn't happened in 50 years so I'm not hopeful!
  4. Thanks for the support! I don't know about it getting fixed right, but at least it will be close and done in steel!
  5. Frosty, it has definitely been a learning experience! while fixing the section in front of the wheel well, I discovered the rocker had been welded to the door pillar in the wrong position. I knew the rocker was crashed, but damn! I never would have thought somebody would just weld it where it ended up. 1 inch too high and 1/2" too far in. The new metal tab on the bottom is where the rocker should be!
  6. rust out behind the rear bumper is fixed! replaced someone's bondo and window screen job with steel. Unfortunately, they never closed the underside so the interior panel was screwed as well.
  7. If I remember right, they are #8 sheetmetal screws.
  8. A little more done. Hood, windshield and divider
  9. Not using a Chevy water pump pulley are you? That will give you the difference you mention. If you had the A/C pulley and spacer on the crank, and didn't put it back on, that will give 1/4" the other way.
  10. Nason 1 shot enamel. I use Rustoleum oil based enamel until I find the exact color I want, then have a local paint shop mix it up in Nason. The grille and firewall are rustoleum, fenders are Nason and I will use Nason for the rest when that time comes. The black inside the fenders and on the fuel tank braces is just the "farm" version of Rustoleum, very heavy, chemical and chip resistant.
  11. Thanks, Hawaii Bob! Frosty, it is Regal Red.
  12. The bumper guards and crank hole cover really give it that OLD look!
