I had an exciting weekend (yawn) working under the fastback. I did make some good progress, however, taking care of the two problem areas the PO caused by seeing how well a fastback can bounce over a curb.

Here's the first one, which is done except for the finishing glazing layer:

After:

The other area is the driver's side torque box, which I managed to get two layers of Metal2Metal on so far. I'm also smoothing the welds on the traction bars/subframes. They also will get the glazing filler over them next weekend. Here's what it looked like when I started today:

Once these areas are all done, then it's on to doing a little light sanding and cleaning and the chassis will be ready for new primer and paint. :highfive:

I get mine at the local auto paint store, but Eastwood also carries it. I'd love to send you some sun, it was 80 degrees here today and it got hot in the garage! :shocked2:

Thank you so much for posting that last photo! I'm converting my '67 to use a '68 fuel line for safety reasons, and your picture shows exactly where I need to drill the hole in the torque box for the line to pass through.

Glad to be of help! The fuel line is rerouted on my fastback, so I put that plug in to close the hole.

Nice work Laurie,
I may have to try that on my floor supports where they are dented.

The bottom of the car will look just like the top of the car, blue with gold stripes (although not as nice, I'm sure). The rear axle and shocks will remain blue, and the subframes/traction bars will remain black. I'll use single stage paint, like we did on the underside of the hood and decklid. I have plenty of time to work on this as the car will be powerless for several months while the engine is being redone and further modified.
