Finished the patch work on the Chevelle in my shop today. I cut another piece of an old pan to hammer form over the hole from the rust I cut out.



Screwed it down to mark for trimming and plug weld holes. I also tapped an imprint of the body bolt to make a dome for clearance.











Then I moved on to replacing all the body mount bushings. The owner had already done the hard work of removing the bolts. I just had to zip the new ones out and raise the body enough to sneak them in.







The left front location had a shim washer from the factory and I had to put it right back with the new bushing too. 1/4" tolerance on these old cars...





Bushing job done. All that is left is to sand blast the rear bumper fasteners and put the bumper on. Then it can go home and I can start thinking about tearing into my Camaro.

Now, now, it's ok. We just weren't really into the red brake drums. I can live with them though. Not sure about Mitch.

2 and a half days for a 40 hour job. Not bad. The sense of pride in production comes from efficiency without mistakes. There is no second chance to get it right in production. You screw up and you don't get those jobs again and you'll get stuck with the customer pays and turd bumper jobs.

Looks damn good, man. Thanks for reminding me to dig out a before pic, I meant to do that yesterday. Er... Thursday that is. I crashed out after work today so here I am lagging and posting. Did not shine real bright today. Seems like I have been doing floor stuff for a year straight and felt it today. Friday

Let me get my pic on, such as it is. The Chevelle quarter pic is not my job but I sure am glad that guy is in the next bay. On this Chevelle and the last, all I got to do was fussy gap stuff. Speaking of that, red Mustang got engine and trans set back in. Thats pic worthy. I am not done with the trans hump on my 59 job but am close. Boss gone next week so I will just run amok and continue working around the components I don't have yet.

Looking at these Catalina before pics is fun.
