Got everything but the hood sealed up now. I'll get the hood in sealer today and attempt to jam the other pieces in color.

Are you selling the house? Time to list, if so?

Push and keep on pushin'. You are gonna be in good shape real soon and there will be an opportunity to regroup and enjoy then. Meanwhile, run flat-out (weather permitting) until you're past the flurry of coatings work. All your stuff is looking good and I enjoy seeing the progress on two. Many.

Been awhile since I spent a whole day standing and ducking under a twin post lift. Rigor mortis may grip me by morning. I know I was playing heck to pick up anything off the floor toward the end of the day. Gotta love standing on concrete all day working overhead with sparky air tools in your fifties.

No pop knots on noggin though, yet. I work like I'm approaching a helicopter. I be all Quasimodo style under a rack.

Wierd yesterday thing, out of nowhere I had an intense hour or two of thoughts about my cars and what could be next. Real, live, go-fast hobby thoughts. I logged them and let the surge run it's course and was pleasantly suprised to hear from my old self. More pleased that I didn't blab any of the wild thoughts. The experience I've gained since the last time my hobby had a heartbeat makes it a whole different ballgame. IF do something. I have an itch to try. That can happen when the sun comes out for awhile.

I got the underside of the hood primed around the edges. The center will get the SPI satin black to match the rest of the engine compartment later. I did prime the top laying on the body stand, but forgot to get a pic. This one was while I was jamming the underside Gold.





Then I jammed the fenders and painted the valances and cowl grille.







I didn't want to load all the pieces in the back of the pick up again, so I threw the fenders on with a few bolts. DANG, I wish I could leave them there and be done with this phase.

Man, you're one busy guy right now.

Glad my house is pretty much done and I could go home and do nothing if I chose to.


However, been playing with the PCM settings/tune and wouldn't you know it, CURSE will not remain silent thru the process. Hard to dial in a tune when all of a sudden gas starts leaking somewhere abouts the vac canister.
Up on the hoist she goes again later today.......

been a while since I've been on this site. Hello, everybody! Just been working my tail off and getting good quality time with the kids.

Anywho, here's what I've been up to lately.

this one I wrote as a quarter replacement cause it was a brand new car. Some quarters pay more than others and this one happened to pay over 40+hours with some repair time here and there. Work usually gets approved quickly being we're their DRP. This one didn't. They brought out an inspector to look at it as our estimator explained that the roll to the body line was hard to recreate, and that was crushed across the wheel opening, the quarter was mangled(sorry no pic). So the writer got mad at their hard ball and charged them 20 hours repair time just for the QTR. I was like, "Wow dude, they're gonna pick this thing apart". I almost wanted to tell him to take some time off of it but can't say no to money. To get the roll back, it took a door skin hammer, wiggle wire, claw, pogo stick, and a sharpie to mark where to hit evenly.

this was a sway to both upper and lower rails with the Right lower rail being replaced. About 60+ hour job.

of course we don't want to change a perfect quarter panel but the damage to this wheel house was not going to come back with a quarter panel restricting access to both sides of the damaged metal. So I changed the quarter but sent back the new wheel house cause once the quarter was cut off I felt differently about repairing it.

I worked WAY harder tonight on cars than I did at work today where we are slowwwwwwww. Got the tank going in on the truck, went to the hardware store and got all the bolts, made a spacer for the front one in the frame, looking good!

Got the what ever you call it, filler thingie for the shifter on the Gran Sport made and installed.

While I was working on the spacer for the gas tank on my truck tired as hell after 9 pm and wanting to finish up and get in the house my cell phone rings with Nick at the shop were he works trying to bleed the brakes on his Miata and needing help. CRAP! Luckily it's about a mile away tops. I went down there, helped him, put the wheels back on and he drove home. I then washed the Gran Sport finishing up after 10, geeez.
