I planned on getting the trunk all painted up but ran out of steam after the seam sealer. But something got done!

|Dave57210||Got another 10 feet of shelving installed on the East wall of the shop. Could have done another 14 feet but ran outta screws. (Grrr!) Gotta run to Home Despot tomorrow. I'll paint the last 5 brackets in the morning before running into town and by evening, everything should be ready to go up. (for that wall)|

|tech69||today I mudded the front fender to my bike and it's the most shape I ever had to fill. A nightmare to fill and sand. On the second round I applied it going up from the sides and used a rubber squeegee to go straight down the center front to back. What a nightmare. Hopefully the dolphin glaze blesses me with no pin holes but doubt it. Very hard to apply there. Inching closer.|

Started my "new job" today! First day of working on my buddy's Camaro convertible, and things got ugly fast! Pulled the front sheet metal, and then the windshield trim. I saw through the windshield that the metal dash top was cracking, and wanted to look at it closer. Once the windshield was out I saw the dash top cracked about halfway across the top lengthwise! Got a wire wheel to clear off the paint, and the dust flew everywhere! The top of the dash had as much as 3/4" of filler on it in places! Someone had repaired the rusty dash with filler, and repainted it!
We took a drive over to the local classic Chevy dealer, and by chance they had a new dash top. Bought the new top, and drilled all the spot welds out, and welded in a new top, so it's good to go now! Was a good day, but with the setback, not as much work forward as I hoped we'd get done!
Next trip the doors need to be re-hung, and the front sheet metal all set and aligned properly. We'll sand, paint, and jam the sheet metal first, so that's part of the next day's work!

|adantessr||Saturday I helped my buddy put some of the goodies on the 454 in his '67 Camaro. Lots to do yet with engine compartment wiring and plumbing. Doing as much as we can before we put the front clip on. Hopefully remember to take a pic this weekend.|

|sportcoupe||I've been using craftsman tool boxes for 30 years and have had no problems. when my son moved to CA he couldn't take his snapon tools and box so I have that too. nice box but think how many tools you can buy for the cost of a fancy box. its what's inside the box that makes the job go better.|

I got all my rust repairs primed and went ahead and did the whole trunk floor. I am going to zoletone it, not original but what the heck I have a few cans of the stuff.

I didn't do anything on the cars, but did do some more work on site prep for the shop. My neighbor stopped by, and we split firewood up all day, from the tree I fell late last month.
I swore I wouldn't do it, but I let him talk me into taking on his '68 Camaro RS convertible project. It has all the suspension/chassis work done, with narrowed 12 bolt, 4 link, tubular control arms, and coilover shocks. The '67 vintage 427 and Super T10 are also in. So it needs to have all the wiring done, body panels fitted, and some minor body repairs done. Front fenders reworked to clear the custom headers that feed into side pipes. All the interior work done (that gets farmed out). The dash top replaced, due to rust cracks. All exterior trim and lights installed, along with hideaway headlight kits.
I told him I'd give him Tuesdays and Thursdays, and we agreed on an hourly rate, payable weekly. That way if I don't like how it's going, I can bow out, and let him finish it another way.

I bought the black roll around box HF sells. A copy of Snap and Mac.. Not quite as thick on the sheet metal, but plenty strong and the drawer slides are great.. Only $100.00 and Mac is over $600.00..
