Thanks John (and Brian too).
The hard work part so far is correct, but things are in such a mess right now it feels like the results from the hard work are never gonna come.

Kind of how Brian felt doing his rag top I guess.....

I started tacking the strip for the engine bay opening tonight. About 10 tacks and about 1/2 hour in. Every minute helps.

Its off to the local cruise nite now.

Ok I started to prep the 1940 LaSalle to shoot red oxide primer and then it will be ready to paint Oxblood Maroon. Fabulous color.

Played with the advance curve on my GM distributor in the flathead. There is a crack in the housing where the lower bushing is installed. I ordered a new one from Charlie NY on the Ford Barn. Unfortunately my friend who machined this one for me is in the middle of a divorce and I do not feel comfortable asking him to do another one. Hopefully Charlie will have his set up and I will be ready to go.

Still more work on my interior trim panels. All are looking good with a couple ready for cleaning to see if I need to paint them. I know I have to do the door panels but not sure about the rears. Sure is funny how I thought I was just going to throw them on and be done. I also found some friggin clips for the top to body mouldings that I didn't know I had! Grrrrrrrrrrr I didn't remember them even having any! I posted over on the TeamChevelle site asking and sure enough people said they used a clip, mine were "staying on" ok and I figured I never had them and put them back on. Now I find the damn clips! GRRRRRR

Hey, you didn't do that today or last night, when you first posted the photos of your truck back a few days ago it already had the red bumper and no side exhaust. Don't be fooling us, what did you TODAY?

It does look a LOT better with those changes by the way. Glad to see you part of this thread!

Thanks and Your right I did that Thursday but was out of town a few days and just saw the thread so I figured...

Today the only thing I did was moved all my stuff into it from another toy I sold this week and also put down a big *** heavy rubber mat in it's Steel Carport to keep the moisture down underneath.
Pretty Clean under there and would like to keep it that way

(would also like to have this 5 car garage my good friend has, sob got a lift, tire machine, wheel balancing machine, and every tool you could think of, ya I'm jelous )

I assume thats a joke because "they were" running out in front of the rear wheels last week (as seen in pic #1 & #3 in post 1657).

Maybe it was because the pipes are so got dam big I dont know but it just looked like ***** to me. Plus they were totally blocking the view to my 33 x 21.5's and the way they did it, it left the truck with only 3-1/2" clearance (now I have more than double that).

Well, I got out there last night and did a little more prep work on my interior panels. Today I was out there bright and early and finished the prep up and painted them all. I am thinking I will get the moisture shields done tomorrow and then after a few days I'll put the panels back together and install them. But they are looking good, that will make a big difference in how the car looks.

I hate you broke your camera Brian. Hopefully you can borrow one so we can see your panels.

Yes Rob I was joking. You had said you were taking them off. Now you know why I go by 40grit on the HAMB.........Just slightly abrasive.
