tech69 still blocking on this Chevelle. We're trying to knock down the paint to about
5 mil and feather back all edges to metal. It's roughly at 25+ with lots of areas in the 30+ and some areas too thick to read on the mil gauge. It's so much material that sands so slowly the only way to do it without feeling the need to strip it is to use the mud hog and air file. Yesterday I knocked down the roof starting with 36 grit!!! There's so much material it was easy to cancel out the scratch. The inner radius' are the worst part cause they don't like air tools and it's where people tend to sand less. The tear drop block is working wonders in there. So this thing is close to being done and most parts are in primer. It should be really straight but since there was so much air filing done it will be a little more boxy than intended but the truth is it makes it look better. There's a few purists who would note, "this is supposed to be slightly bowed not straight." .... "ah shut up, it will look good."




In other news, this non stop sanding has destroyed my air file. Will have to pick up another one ebay this weekend. Only use an air file with a regulator, never unregulated. Mine broke so I took it off and had only used it sparingly since then. So the first time it was really used without it being regulated it cracked a piston. Very important....don't use them unregulated. It's too much force. Oh well.

tech69 nice work Just imagine after completing the floor you see it on ebay for $20. One time an old boss was too lazy to look for a patch and kept saying, "they don't make these". I spent 8-10 hours on it but later that night I saw it on ebay for $10-DOH!

I don't mean to sound narrow minded but if this thing gives birth to a Chevette, it is going to be an orphan for sure. Fortunately, my car is not Catholic and I am hoping nothing happens.

1971BB427 A .030" over 402 will make a fantastic engine for your build! Love them, and have had great performance from them in a mild or wild build!

I spent the morning dropping the straight axle in my Austin gasser. After driving the Falcon while the Austin was getting a new engine, I quickly realized how rough it rides! Decided to take out a couple leaf springs up front, and see if it softened it up enough. I had 6 when I bought the spring set, and removed one before I built the car. Took out the two shortest on each side today, and it's a bit softer, but I think I'll go one more maybe. I'll wait until I drive it awhile, and see if I like it, or not. It does seem to have softened it up a little. The car is pretty light, and it could drive well, and softer on just the two remaining leafs, but I'll have to adjust the coilovers in the back to retain the slight uphill stance I want with the car.

Just hope it's fixed. The truck seems like such a piece of junk with the noise and it's depressing to drive it.
