I made a lot of progress this past weekend. I finished the filler work on my rear quarters and doors. Filled the weld seams and dings with All Metal, then a skim coat of Putty Coat. They're ready for etch primer now. I align ed the doors perfectly. Even welded and filed the edges to get them to line up perfectly. I stripped the front fenders. One is perfect, the other needs a metal patch which I ordered. I cut open the cowl sides and sealed the hats with POR-15 and Zero Rust. I treated the insides of the doors and quarters with POR-15, and tried to get POR down between the outer wheelhouse and quarter. I plan to put a little POR in a squirt water bottle and soak that gap before I'm done.

I'm getting dangerously close to primer and paint.

So, how black are your hands/arms/face from the POR-15?

sounds like you are making good progress. I will be looking for an emberglow car at Knott's, because my car's color looks very similar to it.

Keep your nose to the grindstone.

P.S. Love that 300.00 OBO shoe polish on the 64.5. I commend you my friend.

Another weekend warrior, I see. I just finished yet another priming and blocking on my stang this weekend. Not a single wrinkle or blemish left on the surface panels anywhere. One more primer shooting and blocking with 320 and its on to wet sanding with 600 and then paint. I am very fortunate to have a buddy that owns a body shop that provides great guidance, assistance and allows me to work there.

Are you planning on painting it before you put your engine and tranny in? Aren't you worried about scratching it putting them in ?

It's kinda like the old chicken and egg. Which one should come first? I've got my engine bay painted, I think I'm going to get the engine in and running before I paint the outside. The thought of lifting an engine/Tranny combo up over a new paint job. brrrrrrrr.....Makes me shudder just thinking about it.
