Hmm. Well these are like this, and I think I have a usable first try on this first piece with the roller.











Here are pics of some other stuff happening around me.

On the red Biscayne, I made the long patch using two 64 Impala side gutters with surgery. On this one, I traced the back edge onto a pattern then transferred that to a 4" strip of 18 gauge and made the bead while slightly tipping. I don't know if its right or wrong but I kind of like the roller because even though I generate more scraps than using jaws, the marked curve never changes. And the metal thickness stays more consistent which is helpful as I found out up on the back of the roof skin.

It's Deltron base and urethane clear, from PPG. Cherry red from their bright and bold color chart, plus a coat of fine russet pearl for sparkle. What you see is three coats of clear, sanded all the way flat and buffed.

Here is the 59 Pontiac gutter with both pieces screwed together. Nowhere NEAR as complex as what John showed. I am just fixing lip rot mainly.

Today was the last race for Dale Earnhart Jr and for Danica Patrick in their full-time racer careers
I too watched the Last NASCAR race of the season. I have watched Martin Truex for several years and I felt he was going to go all the way. I think he was very deserving of the championship. He is a class driver and very humble..

Congratulations Martin Truex Jr..

Now as for this intermission racing I think it sucks!! Hey NASCAR dump this heat racing!!

Tis a shame we have lost so many great drivers in the last couple of years due to "Retirement".

Now as for Danica Patrick leaving, I think that is the best thing for her. She was NOT that good of a driver. I think Richard Petty called it when he stated that she didn't have the aggression it takes to be a good driver let alone great driver.

Truex story: I worked with his aunt or cousin around 1990 and she would tell any stranger who would listen to watch for that guy. He was in trucks and gunning for the big time.

I might swap a 'nad for a few rip snorts in a dragster like that. Especially if it had the my favorite engine.

So on my top panel, as you can see I am making a corner weld. Guys, any thoughts on how to attach the C shaped piece? Currently only the vertical lip has been trimmed and the sandwich is three layers thick where it should be only two. I don't have that decided yet. What would you do?

I went ahead with my intention of adding drain tubes to the rear window channel today. The painter had filled a large gap between the extension panel, deck panel and cove side with rubber sealer... I had asked him to "fill it in" while he was doing other welding. Not happy finding this. Anyway, I scrapped enough sealer off and tacked the tube to hold it and then welded the gap shut and leveled it for the butyl ribbon.

Good thinking on the drains

If I only had back every minute of life spent trying to rinse that area clean.

Go light on the painter, he is a painter.

I use to do the same thing with a brake line like that for a drain. It is something GM really should have done! I ran a rubber hose out the bottom of the quarter.

You dug it out of the weeds, eh ? better get the soap pail and mitt, cause it's only going to look that shiny until it dries...

I drove 320 miles (rt) for a portable frame rack. Going to cut the whole back half off the Camaro this winter and rebuild. This will make getting it all back square and plumb easier and more accurate.
