What???????????? I though you were making a patio deck! I like that idea! I have a cabover too and a "back deck" would be awesome! I love it! Couple of lawn chairs, some indoor/outdoor carpet, 4' by 8'? Giddy up!

MARTINSR I got the trunk sprayed, WHOO HOOOO!

But as I am looking at the photo I spot that I dripped some paint on the license plate, CRAP.

But other than the judges knocking off some points at Pebble Beach Concourse d'Elegance for a non original modification, it looks good.

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!
Too late now, but hopefully you fit the windshield to the metal before welding. I had a shop repair a dash in a '68 Camaro in '75 and they didn't fit the glass. I brought the car home and took it back the next day with the glass to have them redo the repair...

MARTINSR 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.

Yeah, I planned to take the camera, but left it by the door. Came home twice for tools and didn't grab it then either! I'm renting myself out twice a week, so I'll try to remember to take pictures Thursday! Hope he's still got the old dash top there, as it was funny to see bondo so deep and used as rust filler!

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.
