Yeah Brian, but where do they go for vacation? Alaska?

Keep up your great work on the paint prep. That's the Worst task of a car build!

I told you I am old. My love of things mechanical started very young. I found the need to adjust the carburator on the lawn mower almost daily. Built my first "put put." when I was about 10. Later on they started making them out of metal and called them go carts.

Thanks guys. I finished blocking the door today and have it ready for a couple wet coats of Epoxy primer. I don't think I need to strip it all the way. Hopefully I am making the right decision. I shortened it about 3/32 to correct a door gap issue also.

I have posted more on this issue on the thread titled PPG Deltron Epoxy Primer.

WHOOO HOOO the brakes are done and they work better than they ever have. I believe that damn proportioning valve was bad somehow, it has a great pedal and stops nice. No vacuum tank needed from what I can see in my short test drive.

I am going to get out there and do a little more detailing on it and next week I will be driving it.

Sold my '71 Camaro this week, after nearly 40 years of owning it. Just didn't drive it, and interest changed. Also picked up a '63 Falcon Futura yesterday. Nice old barn find that was sitting for the last 23 years, and actually in a real barn.
Plan to build a 60's style gasser from the parts I've accumulated, but it has to wait until I'm done with this darn house remodel!
