poor fitting guards

You have never spoken a truer word. I had to weld pieces of 1/8 rod down the rear end of the "taiwanese" guard to "create" a parallel gap with the door, build up the height of the top of the guard with steel and putty so you didnt catch your coat on the front top edge of the door door as you walked pass, cut and reweld new rear bumper brackets, 1/2" too low, Stretch the mirror locating holes in one door to fit a wing mirror, and on it goes. You have to have a good workshop and plenty of skill to fit the most basic parts. Its a test of patience more than anything else. In the end you have to say"cant be beaten by this crap".

Must have tool for importers.

I picked up my imported tywonese universal ruler this morning on the high tide. Its a must for anyone who is also using after market parts from tywon. When those parts just dont quite fit, dont take out that block buster, just reach for the "SUPER RULE" and once you measure it, it will be near enough which will be good enough. It does have a drawback with small objects such as the knob on your door as you can see from the picture.

Best 1/4 panels

Turdpolisher is appropriate because I seem to always start with a really rough turd. See attachments. Then spend way too long bringing them back to life. But I do save them from the crusher!!

Thanks 67 Mustang - you really made my day. I am spending tomorrow at the beach searching for my ruler!

69 Chevelle is waiting for 350 SBC from machine shop.
67 Mustang on Auto Twiller (cause I can't spell the actual thing) installing floor pans, patching mulitple rust throughs, 351 W is awaiting is turn at machine shop.
53 Ford P/U finishing the polishing for road trip to SRN @ Louisville, Back to the Bricks in Flint and Woodward Dream Cruise. I am in Georgetown, Texas.
72 Cutlass in the "wings" when above are finished (ummmm maybe 442 clone?)

Busy AS

As we say here you must be busier than a one-armed wall paper hanger in a gale. What do you do in your spare time.
I am yet to finish this 67. Been nearly two years since it arrived here from the USA.
Just need to fit the "ezy-wiring loom" and put the inside guts back together, and ,,and.
You have a nice chevelle there. A mustnag nut here in town has just imported one from L.A. Yet to see it.
Wrecks to riches show has a feature resto on a Chevelle you probably would have seen.
If you want a"super rule" i will send it out at high tide.
Cheers from downunda.
Al.

Mustang quarters

The 69 Chevelle quarters (I replaced both) were puchased through OPG and they fit fairly well except the drivers side was a little over 1/4" shorter than the passenger side. We shimmed out the quarter panel extension, masked it, and them "floated the gap" with metal body filler. After grinding, sanding and a one coat of bondo it turned out excellent.
I also replaced the panel below the rear glass. These modifications left one big problem -- no drip rails on three sides of the trunk and no one I could find actually makes the inner drip rails for the trunk. Some catalogs offer them but they not in production as far as I know. Soooo -- I made my own. I cut strips of sheet metal 6" wide. I took these strips to a shop and had them bend them into a "J" configuration to original dimensions. I then cut the long leg of the "J" to 1" wider than the original width. I then shrank and stretched, bent and cussed until they fit. Welded them in and I have had a lot of "non-professionals" look at them and they can't tell that they are not stock. It was a lot of work but with no "repops" and salvage ones would be scrap by time you remove them, I had no other real choice but to remake.

53 Ford P/U to State Inspection tomorrow. Cut and Buff 1 door and 1 fender.
69 Chevelle engine back from machine shop tomorrow.
67 Mustang driver side floor pan final fit tomorrow.
Diddle wife in spare time!!!
