Hey Mitch, try not be be too discouraged because the only thing that makes painting go smooth with products not previously used is fresh experience. Any old hand can still take awhile to figure out what a new product likes. Bear in mind also that you do have good protection down and thats all any Chevy really cares about, on innards like you're doing. Relax, because during the put together, you can reach a point where all the black stuff is up there and if you don't like the looks of it all... You have my blessing to fog it all with engine paint, rattle can. If it needs that uniformity. You know it will probably catch a few grey scratches along the way so... just saying... trim black or? Whatever you know and like the look of that won't wrinkle whats there. Sounds like it needs to gas out so some temp cycling of the steel outdoors will be good for it, maybe make it more stable anyhow.

GTP will top 270K at lunch tomorrow according to the routine. It sat clean and idle today and it will probably be raining when I back it out.

Is this the point where if it was a Star Trek episode, the Captain orders course and speed then pauses briefly before motioning and saying "Engage." ?

Get your roadkill shredder wheel gizmo on up in there.

Ok, I got the inside of the doors done today at work. They are ready for primer.

I came home and spot blasted the rear end housing of what ever I didn't get off with the abrasive wheel. And then I started the lift thingie to get the cab up on the frame. I was going to finish it, I was RUNNING out there not stopping, then WHAM, that was that, I need to sleep.

Got the outsides of the doors close, should have them finished up tomorrow ready for primer. OMG this feels good!

Again, have to thank the wonderful family I work for to let me do there here.

Well it's been driving me nuts how I would get the cab on the frame and it's as good as done, WHOOO HOOOOO! I worked late at the shop getting my doors going with the body work and figured that was it for me, yeah right. So I took my evening walk making it to the local hardware store and getting the lag bolts I needed. Got home and went out there and made it happen, WHOOO HOOO!

Got my primer mixed up so I can shoot the rear end before I take off for work in the morning.

Things are coming along!

I got the bushings out of the old diff and made a sleeve to help install one of them. Funny thing is, after the bushing is in, the tool can't come off, ha....

Got the new diff up and the control arm bolts thru last night.
If I can find a u joint and straps in this land of nothing, I will take it for a good drive and burn off some gas from the tank soon. I'm doing it this way to see how it feels going from 2.73 to 3.73 with this gutless 327 the car has.

Sounds like a good time. A well-earned V8 rip-snort should really hit the spot about now.
