just got the car out of the paint booth, and started putting everything together.
now working on the bumpers, working all the damage out, straightening, and working out some damage through the bumper brackets also..
licence plates are in the process of being repaired right now. the original front plate was bent in many places, as it were pulled over a curb, back out, in, and out again.. and some rust, nothing too bad. but alot of the lettering was pushed to the level of the rest of the plate, but we got it out fairly well.
cleaning it up more, primered it, painting, and matched the color for the yellow on the lettering also.. a little more work, painting the plates, and touching everything up tomorrow!
out living in long beach now, and work on the wagon is getting down in the body..
all the rust is cut out, the bottom of each fender, top of car where the roof rack was mounted, weld shut the chrome molding holes, welded the front of the fenders and grill together to flush the front, and welded together a sheet of steel to the headlamp rings to give it a french look.. every dent is pulled, and on the passenger side bottom rocker panel, was a 1/2" deep dent, that stretched from the front that needed repair at the fender, all the way down right next to the rear wheel well.
and everything is cleaned up, and sanded down, about to go over it again because of a couple small dents that are still showing..
here i got a set of wheels from an older crown vic LTD, cleaned them up alot, painted the rims a darker shade of red i had laying around at the shop, and cleaned the thin white wall on the tires.. new euro headlamp housings, and 6.5k HID's. tried cleaning up the trim and fix some dents on them.. then reinstalled them along with the roof rack.. and girlfriend bought me my new volvo dash for my birthday.. then cleaned up and painted some interior panels the same color as the exterior, just alot more clear coat on it.. hahaha..
