08-17-2014 04:03 PM Grill shell and radiator
I finally got my grill shell back from the chrome. I assembled it as a unit to install it in my truck. I blacked out the cross pieces in the grill is the were a pain to polish. I lowered the radiator/evaporator/ fan assembly in to the grill to install as a unit.

08-17-2014 03:57 PM Bed floor
A few years ago (about 20) I had a wild cherry tree cut down in my back yard. I had it milled into boards and they been lying around every since. I planed some down and machined them into bed floor boards so that I could use the stainless hidden fastener strips. I test fitted them before I finished them. After finished the boards with a brush I found a lot of brush marks in the finish. After sanding them down with 120, 220,and 320 I found that I still have some divots from the planer so I applied another brush coat to fill in the divots. The problem is that I have to wait several days before I can sand. After sanding with 220 and 320 I applied a coat with a HVLP sprayer and thinned it with 10% mineral sprits.

I needed to trim the wiggle wires to match the originals in the seat bottoms. The end result was a seat that was a little lower than the old seats.

08-17-2014 03:52 PM Almost new seats cont.
I got a set of seat covers from Corvette America and used their web site video to install them. I decided to reuse the existing foam but added some foam in a couple places. I didn’t want to use the bar trim that goes near the top of the seat back. I added some foam to fill the void. I also have a bad back so I added some foam to the lower back to give me some lumbar support. After running back and forth from the garage to the house to view the video I finally got the first seat done.
