Progress on 442 convertible

Have not been on in a while been busy working long hours. Posted some pics on the progress on this car, took the body off the chassis and started the bodywork and skim coating the pitted chassis mounted both the body and chassis on two rotisseries. Makes working on this much easier......

Thanks for the comments Brian. This has been a pretty rough build to get this car to a level that I like to see in the end result, definatelly a challenge for sure. I usually like to have the chassis powder coated but with this one so heavily pitted from the flywheel back there was just no way I could do it. So I am going to have to spray this one in semi gloss single stage. Going to finish the chassis complete and rolling on the correct redline tires then send it to have the engine and trans installed. After that will get back on the underside and get that shell ready for paint, all the hard work is mostly done at this point. All the hard work always pays off when you see the final product, thats what always keeps me going.

exellent work....most guys would be happy with just one rotissery, is it as tight a fit as it looks with the car on its side?

Yes it is a very tight fit with the car on it's side, have to watch out for the door tracks or I will be doing more blocking. I have to say you do get spoiled using one or two of these things, LOL!!! The second rotissorie is a freind of mine's that dropped it of 3 years ago to do one of his cars, needless to say the car never showed up so it has been in my way all this time. Then he came by and had the nerve to say he would charge my customer for using his rotissorie!!! Imagine!!!LOL!!
