Not to worry, as this guy is pretty careful with this type of work. I have known this guy quite a few years, he has a lot of real nice cars but has had this one since the late eighties. He approached me to do this car about 7 years ago, but was not willing to spend what I wanted. As time went by, he has come to the realization that he is not getting any younger and wanted this car done. As there are a few others that could have done this around here, he just did not trust any one else with this car as everything on it was original GM sheetmetal. You know how parts disappear sometimes and are replaced with after market, that was his biggest worry. I found this out afterwards.

In this particular case the customer is putting most of this car together himself, he is not willing to pay me to do something that he can. I can handle most mechanical aspects myself, including engine assembly, full suspension, wiring and so on. I know my limitations, and have that covered by using the best guys for that job.

69 widetrack Couldn't agree more...most people are qualified in one aspect of the trade or hobby...there are some people that are qualified in several aspects...I don't know of any ONE person that's qualified in all aspects.

ERV JR Not to knock anyone but everyone has what they are good at and make money doing. I do agree with the under hood detail. But how often are u bending and flaring custon stainless brake lines. And. Stripping the An Fittings and polishing them and re anodizing them to match the car ? I hzd a customer with a 62 impala who we did a bunch of work for that had it painted. Painter did the steering coloum we just rebuilt and now he wants to bring it back because they put it together wrong. Point Is there times where the final product will be better if everyone dose their steps

69 widetrack There are Body Shops, there are Mechanical Shops, there are Restoration Shops and there are Custom Shops. A regular Body Shop is probably more qualified to install an engine than a Mechanical Shop is to install a quarter panel...Body Shops sometimes need to replace front clips on vehicles...that means the engine comes with it. Restoration Shops would in many cases do mechanical, body and a host of other services...a Custom Shop should probably be able to do more services that other more specialized shops....but...in the end...it all depends on people. A shop can call themselves whatever they want...in the end it's what they can do that counts...if they say they can install an engine, have the proper facilities for it...and they do it...then that's what matters.

mr4speed Thanks for the comments Ray. Just have to shoot the dash, firewall, and inner rear package moulding then it will be leaving. Will cut and buff later on after he starts assembly.

69 widetrack As always Dennis, pure perfection...you can tell it's a clone Dennis....it's been done that much better and I for one appreciate that. If it where a real Yenko...that would be a different story...I admire your attention to detail and what you've done.

Beautiful Job

No I did not do an intercoat clear, what I did was lay down 2 coats of SPI clear on everything. That way I had the blue base protected before I layed out the stencil. Then next I wet sanded everything with 600 grit, bolted the doors and fenders on, then layed out my stencil. I sprayed out the white stripes last night, now I am getting everything ready to put down 5 coats of clear.

mr4speed I used to wet down the floor years ago, but just stopped doing that. As far as a booth goes , where you see the car sitting is where it was sprayed. And just as Ray has stated the more fans that you have sucking in air (intake and exhaust) the more dust that will be stirred up. Just layed down the stencil on the sides and shot the white, getting ready to lay down the clear and will post some pics very shortly.
