      I did blast down the road before winter hit...seats not bolted down, 2 bolts in each fender, not one single light in it, blown brake line on the front...hell the steering wheel wasn't even bolted on...lol.

        Well been hard at it lately...got the frame rails cut out and replaced...switched out the carb and got it running much better, put in a new fuel sending unit while I had the tank out to do the frame rails. Cleaned up the trunk gutters and bottom of trunk lid. Got the little work that the hood needed done. Got a little bit of work left to do on the underside of rockers and then should be ready to primer....cant wait!!! Then let the blocking begin!!! If anybody is bored I have all kinds of durablocks you can use and help!! Lol!!

          Nice progress. Are you interested in selling the original air filter you had on it?

                  Got out tonight and shot the backs of the doors...hope to do the underside of the trunk lid, trunk gutters, and door jambs this week. Then bolt it back together and start blocking.

                      I only use ppg products. This is actually some 20 yr old acrylic enamel I'm using just to jam it out. I will be doing base, clear on the body.

                          I used PPG base coat clear coat on my 66 and my 65. Nearly have to sell the farm....anymore. Lots of cash, but it surely does a nice job. I use SATA guns, and they work well. Nice work. sgrip65

                          All body supplies are expensive...I dont think most people understand how much money it takes to do this stuff...buy a roll of D.A. pads or roll of sticky back sandpaper!!! Good stuff costs almost as much as the paint by the time you have stripped the car...block it at least twice, then wet sanding before and after paint...lots of paper!! Sure is an awesome feeling though when you step back when finished and know YOU did that!!! And even though its expensive, it's a fraction of what somebody would charge you to do it..

                            Indeed, PPG is nice stuff, and it is easy to work with. I used the K-36 primer surfacer, and it sands like butter. Absolutely, you are correct...like anything else, the best cost the bucks....but worth it. Off track on your thread, just my opinion in agreement. Again, nice work. sgrip65
