Well I'll be. I never checked, but would not have thought parts coverage was that complete on those. Cool Dodge!

Hey I have a section of drip rail molding that doesn't clamp tight on bottom. I worked the edge in some but its not gonna snap tight without damaging it. Ever needed a dab of glue on a new drip rail molding?
If the hood is an add on, the springs may still be from the flat hood and you need the cowl hood springs with 2 more coils. OR, they are just tired and need to be replaced anyway ?

Hipster answered the glue issue with aftermarket parts.

I didn't know about extra coils. I'll have to surf pics and compare, but thats just how it ferls. Like a Camaro trunk lid with spoiler added but not that bad. I would not have guessed that the cowl hood is substantially heavier. Thanks for the tip!

Don't quote me, as it's been a couple years, but I think the SS spring has 26 coils.
Lots of threads and info on this on Team Chevelle.

Oh and the offending drip rail molding looked like a banana in the box and I did not attempt to straighten for fear of making it ugly on her side. Other one fit great. That is, both needed work to make it over the sharp curve but driver's side is tight. The ones that were on it weren't bad at all and are still usable after at least two installs.

Today I'll stay close to the A/C and contemplate abortion and sneaky women and life. Hug your kids.

I started out Fathers day getting out to the garage and priming on my truck! WHOOO HOOOO! I can't believe it, the very first application of primer or paint on the rebuild, WHOOO HOOOOO!

I found a sandblaster and will call them but I am thinking more now into just doing it myself. After all, this SPI primer takes any crap all away once you spray it, I mean look at the inside of the cab, it's perfect now.

So I was done by 9:30 this morning and took a little ride in the sun with my 65 Gran Sport. It hit me that I need a photo of the car in front of the house I sold in 1986 that gave me the money to buy it. Sooooooo, here's the story. I sold this house in a divorce for $115k. Splitting the money with the ex I made $8k and splurged and bought the Gran Sport for $2250.

Now the sick part, this house, it's worth very close to a million dollars now! Maybe even a million but certainly $900k or so. Yep, wish I had that instead of the car!

And I have to tell you if you are doing any painting or priming this is a MUST HAVE gun! I have a whole arsenal of spray guns, some costing many hundreds but this stupid $40 gun just blew my mind!

I got it for primer only, polyester primer actually, it's got a 2.0 tip. I went to prime the inside of the cab and have another for general priming that was going to grab but saw this and the tilting cup and it hit me how useful this may be. Now mind you, I don't believe I have ever even used this gun where I moved the cup out of it's normal position. I just thought it moved and it mounted that way because it was an odd gun, it never occured to me that you could do what I did today.

I rotated the cup to spray the gun upside down! OMG! Look at the photos of the areas down in the bottom of the cab corners. I looked with a flash light and was blown away that it was TOTALLY coated inside there!

Day started at 1am
Tank in and out like 20 times before welding the bolts to my bed, cut the neck, cut my rubber spacers, bolted up the tank, raised the seat 2" bolting it down to the original locations, Primed then rolled on 2 coats of Silver hamerlite (7am). Let that dry until 10am(little nap) then I went to a Car show for a few hours then did Fathers day.

Reupholstering the bucket seats in the Impala has been nothing but extreme frustration and set backs. I have as many staples in a cup that I cut off to move/change things as will be on the one seat I finally "finished". Along the way I was asking on Impala sites about why the covers didn't fit right or line up and am now quite positive the seat frames are a from a '65 and THEY ARE DIFFERENT. A guy on the 348-409 forum posted pics of correct 62-64 bucket frames and mine are definitely not right. Whoever put the black covers on, did a really good job of getting them to look good. Mine look OK, but the seat cushion side panels are now loose and wrinkled from being stretched too tight for the incorrect base. I took padding out of that so the covers would sit better, but once I get correct frames, I may need to send them back to Ciadella to have them replace the side panels. The hinge holes aren't going to be in the same place.
The seat back was the same nightmare Saturday. I tried to use the new foam I bought, but it's much bigger and thicker and the cover was in the wrong place to even get on. I took it apart this morning and used the modified foam that was in there and stapled it shut. It is what it is for now.
