Yup, I see now he was worried about the frame falling on Blitzen and then Santa would be short 1 reindeer for the rest of his deliveries...
Glad you have it tied up now, John...

deadbodyman It IS fun but it needs cal tec traction bars.
For what I paid for it and including the repairs I couldn't even buy the auto meter phantom gauges that are in it.
The A/C even works.

Barry had sent me some chips of the SPI reds and then Kelley (CarolinaCustoms) painted a test panel of the SPI dark red. He then color sanded and buffed it and sent it to me. I really like the richer dark red and believe it will look great with a champaign or tan Bel Air accent stripe and tan top. (Thanks again Kelly.)

I have not painted a red car since I bought a worn out '65 GTO convertible for $700 dollars in 1980 or there abouts. It is time for a red car.

On a brighter note, I now have a project for tomorrow!



I will correct my message to John about tying his frame securely to something.

What I said was "s it cant fa years ag whie"

What I meant to say was " #h if flog fa years ag blitzen"

I hope this clears things up.

I love red also. I may go the same route no matter what all the "resale red" guys say with their snide remarks. I see them walking around the cruise night and saying that every time they see a red rod.

Focus is now back on the floorpans. There is considerable detail work to be done as well as grinding the welds but it is sort of fun working on a small area at a time. I weld, grind, tighten my seams and sand one section at a time and then move on to the next area. I am really glad to be back working on the body.

Probably the moderators for the Body Exterior section of the forum are too.

I know this feeling John and boyoboy I bet you sure are feelin it. So nice to be finishing things and have the hardest parts knocked out or leaning against the wall ready for the next phase. Every grin you get off it is well earned! Just think about that sit-n-brew after setting it back down as a roller.
