okay so going back a wee bit, I had to find all the bits and bobs from their hiding places.

Image

made sure the new lights worked

Image

had to make a few small repairs

Image

Image

Image

shut up! it might work!!! Smile Smile

got the front seal holder on and bare metaled the whole thing, kinda had to as there was much missing.

Image

got some mud mudded on.

Image

started on the rear

Image

Image

Image


I hope I never have to do these again, very tricky, not 100% happy with the back one but, its done now.

also repaired the very top points of the rear valance, when I removed it all those years ago, I'd had to drill out a spot weld right on the tip of both sides,

Image

Image

so I had left it in the toohardbasket till now, welded it up and ground it down in a few minutes really, guess I have learned a few tricks on this project?

Going back again
Image

don't leave those chrome knuckle guard things on your car to long!

Image

thats a bunch of rust and a small hole in a stupid ass place.

Image

primer on small things.

Last bit of the old red paint getting sanded down.

Image

Image

going back looking at the old pic of the sides it looked okay, after I worked it over with the 2x4 it needed alot of work, I must have but a good 8 hours into each door and quater panel in this thing.

Image

getting closer and closer to top coat!

Image

Image

finished up at about 6pm, temp was dropping, gun was blocking up and spraying like shit, so I did the sides last, most of it will be sanded off, hopefully it will be okay.

Image

last little bit under the tank/beam mounts.

holy shit painting a car takes ages!!!
this was about 5 hours work, sanding down all the insides of the bonnet, engine lid and all four fender.
I was hoping the do the insides of the doors aswell but didn't have enough time.
I don't think I used any filler inside these panels because why? except for the engine lid around the vents, so the finish isn't great and the bonnet had to lay on some cardboard on the floor. less than ideal but its all shiny and red and thats the main thing!
