Gentlemen, Gentlemen! We can't just go and throw out names for John's car! Naming a man's car is very personel process to a car guy .It's nothing to be bantered about! John is the only one who should name his darling.

His kid maybe.

Maybe I will take TooManyProjects suggestion...Sort of. I can name her "Miss Teresa" and when peopla ask me where I got the name I can tell them she is named after Mother Teresa because she was so Holey when I bought her.

John

Hmmmmm. If I named my car after a person I hope I didn't name my kid after a car. My daughter's name is Christine.........

I was just trying to be funny. You spelled it right I am sure. Resurection would probably be appropriate.

This was one nasty day. Between cleaning the undercoating off the drivers side and trimming the rusty bottom off the inside quarter panel I just stayed covered in trash all day. The patch panels are made and drilled for the spot welds but nothing is welded yet. Tomorrow is another day.

John,Now that you have your plug weld holes in the patch panel Heres a little trick I use that you may not know of ...I know from your previous posts you'd rather use eopxy inside and out rather than weld thru primer but the problem is you cant weld thru epoxy...so what I do is epoxy the pieces then punch the holes so the sides of the holes are bare metal that'll make the welding easier....once the two peices are mated together you still cant weld because theres epoxy on the piece without the hole so what I do is use a flat weld cutter drill or a low angle drill bit to clean out the epoxy ....after this is done and you seperate the two pieces there will be a perfect little circle of bare metal where all the plug holes are...it takes a little time but its the best way I've come up with to weld two pieces AND still use epoxy....I hope this helps...

This is excellent advice Mike. Brian recommended a very similar process and I hace already bought a tungston carbide flat spot weld drill for that purpose.

As you can tell from the pictures I have not shot any epoxy yet. Mostly because I am doing this in the basement and painting is always a problem.

My intentions are to go ahead and put the inner rockers in but before I install the outer rockers or the quarter panel patches to paint both sides, in and out with epoxy. In the mean time I am going to at least shoot weldable primer in the areas that the body mounts weld too. I thought I would use the spot weld drill to clean out the bottom of all the plug weld holes before I welded, even the weldable primer which I am not crazy about welding over.

Thank you for sharing this good information. I value the advice I get from you, and the other experienced craftsman we have here.

When I painted the doors and cowl on the roadster last winter I used SPI even though I had some DPLF and some epoxy that came from a Nason dealer. I may use them up on these floors but I hate to. SPI is far superior. It is very impressive.

My intention is to do the body in all SPI products. I have gotten a red chip from Barry and will use it if I go red. Plans are to bc/cc the body. Barry's red has just a little less orange in it than most bright reds but is not dark like so many "true" reds. I like it.

You would have laughed at me going past every red car at the Cleveland Cruise In holding this chip up against them to compare the colors. I learned 40 years ago NOT to pick a color from a paint chip alone.

Yes Randy. The Lynn Yearwood theory of street rod fabrication. "2 bolts a day = 14 a week = 62 a month = 800 a year." Lynn says he can build any car in 2 years. LOL

Looking good John. Thanks for posting the progress shot.

Just a thought. You could brush epoxy on in places it won't be seen and there may be less fumes.
