Looking forward to pulling my 67 back out of storage this weekend and assembling it.

Was my first car, rebuilt it and drove during high school with rotten floorboards and the inline 200 and then put in storage.

After college/pre-kids was able to complete welding/repairs, then had it chemically dipped and sealed due to being a northern car with plenty of rust.

Then back in storage, has been waiting for paint and assembly since 2009.

Should be fun, will track the progress here.

Got the 67 out/sorted/ in the front of the shop, plenty of cool parts which I had forgotten about putting away re-appeared.

Some surface rust in areas from sitting but nothing significant, next week we’ll get it up on the rotisserie and get to work on it.

I noticed the cowl vent is covered or non-existent. Was it covered because it leaked or for aesthetics? If it leaked was the rust removed? If not, it's a good time to do it ! ! Looks and sounds like it will be an amazing car! !

Yes, Rod & Custom M2 front end kit. They have a template at the shop for welding the 351W motor mounts, which was nice.

Welded in two panels to cover the cowl to prevent future water intrusion as well as a clean look. There are similar modifications/upgrades to the trunk pan, rear seat divider and rear frame rails. Tinman subframes.

This is not a concourse resto, so taking the chance to personalize a few items.

Progress.
Today was able to spray on the Lizard Skin sound deadener throughout the cabin and the trunk area. I bought the spray gun kit, 2 gallons of sound deadener and 1 gallon of the ceramic coating. Also sprayed a coat of epoxy in the engine compartment. Sunday we’ll spray the Lizard Akin ceramic sludge on the cabin firewall/along transmission tunnel, sand down the engine compartment &
spray Chassis Black Satin.

Yes, sound deadener before ceramic.

I was pleased with the coverage (2 gal SD, 1 gal Ceramic) and results, but I have some thin CCF and then foil faced batting to go over the Lizard coating.

The amount really gets down to personal preference as the deadener is heavy. It can be sprayed on as thick as you prefer.

Applied a gallon of the Lizard Skin Ceramic today, it was easy to apply and actually went on easier than the sound deadener. I coated the firewall, transmission tunnel, front toe boards and the rear seat area over the mufflers.
Chucky - For someone who plans to do the Lizard Skin route next month, do you have any fresh suggestions or warnings? Please don't hold back, even if they seem obvious! Thanks.

I bought the spray kit so it went on pretty easily. I ran a little higher psi (65) than they recommended, which gave me a slightly thicker coat so I could move faster. Make sure the area is clean, typical surface prep is required. Its water based, so if you two coat it make sure to put the entire gun in a bucket of water between coats. I sprayed on a warm day in the FL sun, so by the time I finished the first coat it was dry and ready for a second coat. I had some extra sound deadener so I sprayed the inside of my fenders and trunk lid for fun. I also coated the bottom of the hood with the ceramic coating. Its a nice product, and instructions are well written.

Big weekend for the 67

We had sprayed epoxy and done some fill work last couple of weeks, which left us here



Sprayed some dupont platinum on the engine compartment and the dash yesterday, its a single stage but the metallic and colors give it a lot of depth. These pictures give it a hint of blue, but as it dries down and cures the gray emerges

Running the higher pressure seems to give a little bit finer spray and more even texture.
