Today at the Goodguys 3-24-12

Well today it was scheduled to rain like a cow peeing thru a pole bridge so the Goodguys show was close to a bust, but ended up decent. There was just a fraction of the cars you would expect but my brother and I had fun in the Rambler just the same. Picked up a few things and saw a few outstanding cars.

The engine compartment shot was on a stunningly detailed 57 Chevy, the underside of the hood was like a friggin mirror, very nice. The chopped top Lincoln was not so nice, just cool. The top was kinda rough but looked very cool. The Henry J, now that was an awesome car. it was in the swap meet, didn't see the price because it doesn't matter anyway. But check out the motor, a full hilt 302 Gimmy with a 700R4 behind it!

I turned my brothers stomach looking at this Impala, it's a low rider so he just can't see any reason to look at it. But it was BEAUTIFUL! The paint was absolutely top notch, I LOVE that bass boat flake, friggin wild! And of course I had to get a photo of the only other Rambler there.

The Caddy was very well done too, straight as a friggin piece of glass.

Brian

Edit: I missed a photo of the Impala. It's amazing how the color changes so much from the close up to the three quarter shot, that is the same paint honest.

The first photo is James Hedfield's (lead singer of Metallica) Lincoln Zephyr built by Roy Brizio's boys I believe. I am thinking this and the 40 Ford in the next three photos are 3/4 $million cars easy. They both have stunning detail.

Brian, the pics looked just fine to me. it was warm in Santa Rosa last week. I rode my harley every day lask week,(a rare treat) it got in to the 70s. i love riding my Buell engine hugger. last wensday i blasted around with just a Tshirt on.
as i'm sure you know, the north bay and you have pounded with rain, today, it was insane, up here it rained all day. I WILL NEVER take my pantera out into the rain, nor the vettes, the P car will rust and the old vettes will leak.
i just watched Dish TV and messed around putting togther, the 64 corvette in.garage, what else , i hate rain. how does the rain effect your body work.

i mean rain, humidity= almost instant rust to bare steel. working with fiberglass in this weather is no big deal, you just mix it up to kick a little faster. don't get me wrong, i work in my garage, not out in the rain. when doing body work and grinding to bare steel the humidity gets to the bare metal, this again is no big deal to me as i get the bare metal covered up right away, but if not even in the garage surface rust will form in the garage. even spraying 2k epoxy primer in this weather-cold and humid- it has been problematic. even with a water trap/filters in line. So, i just don't do it, i vegetate and wait for better weather.

Oh, by the way, i like reading your on tips on how to do things...

Around here, it has almost no effect. If the car is inside and dry even bare metal can sit a number of days without worrying about it. Here, even when it's raining there seems to be less humidity than on a sunny day in the middle of summer in Arkansas. It sounds nuts but it is so different it isn't funny.

But basically I shoot to have the body work done on a panel and in back in primer the same day. If it is going to be sitting for a long period of time in bare metal you just clean it well before you prime it.
