Looks great man. I will have to remember to shoot the fender well area as well.

Re: Bringing the '65 back to life

Spent a few hours this weekend stripping the interior roof panel. I used the DA wherever possible, and Scotchbrite rolocs in the tight spots. It was a cramped, dusty, loud job, and I'm glad to be done. I hope to find the time to get over there one night this week and get it into primer.

Re: Bringing the '65 back to life

Looks good man. You should try doing it with the cab upright. It took me almost 3 weeks to complete that. And as you said glad I am done.

Re: Bringing the '65 back to life

I'm sure. My neck didn't appreciate the position I was in, but I'm sure it would have been far more bothersome had the cab been right side up.

I just noticed that in the pictures it looks like the board I was sitting on was resting on the door jambs. It wasn't. It was placed atop crates on either end.

Re: Bringing the '65 back to life

Sorry to bother you again...haha but you're a bit a head of me so I thought I'd ask hoping it'd be fresh in your mind.

The floor pan replacement has an opening in it. One side welds to the rocker and the other to the back lip of the cab wall. What about the space in between? Does it simply need to be squeezed close enough to weld that up or how did you go about this. Thanks.

Re: Bringing the '65 back to life

No problem. That space is closed by the "ear" on the rear cab support.

If your cab is standing nose up, would you mind snapping a picture of that. I think I may have shorted one side I did the floor pan repair on. It doesn't quite reach the back wall flush. So I need to see what should happen to may add some relief cuts or cut the end off and add sheet metal in between to make it flush against the back wall.

Yep, I'll try to remember to do so the next time I'm over at the shop.

Here's the picture you're looking for. You can see that the "ear" of the rear cab support closes that gap. I left a small drain hole open at the bottom of each cab corner, but that is a matter of preference.



Yesterday we were able to get the interior roof panel into primer.



This morning we hit a big local swap meet, then shot the paint.



Closeup of the "hammered" or "hammertone" finish. It's not distracting or attention grabbing, but it's still just a little different.

Thanks. That's two coats.

Thanks. That's the plan. We'll use the MIP vinyl full floor mat (http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...d.php?t=529854), and the lower portion of the back wall may or may not end up being sprayed with the Raptor bed liner coating. Otherwise the rest of the interior sheetmetal will be sprayed with the same silver for the most part.

Re: Bringing the '65 back to life

that's the same silver hammertone I used on the inside of my truck, it took me like two or three tries to get an even coat! are you going to clear coat over it or leave it? im not sure if I want to or not it makes it easier to do touch-ups if I don't!

Re: Bringing the '65 back to life

I don't intend to clear over it. It's a nice slick surface, as is.

If all goes to plan, the frame should be blasted next week, and the cab should be upright this weekend.

Not sure if this would apply technique-wise with a spray gun, but with rattle cans I have found that when squirting the hammered or metallic flake paint, I get much better, more even, results if the target area is lying flat, and I shoot from a greater distance.
For me, letting the paint basically "fall" in place seems to get it laid out much better.

Hope that is helpful....

Re: Bringing the '65 back to life

You have to be careful when using that technique with a gun, as it's easy to end up with "dry spray". Any textured, hammered, or metallic paint is going to require a little additional care to lay down a uniform coat, but you'll have an easier go of it with a gun rather than rattle cans.

All of the primer/paint on this project thus far has been shot with a typical siphon-feed gun, with the exception of the Raptor bed liner coating, which was shot with a Schutz gun. The interior paint above consists of two coats of Rustoleum Hammered Silver, thinned 15% with Xylene with a little acrylic enamel hardener added, which was shot over one solid coat of Rustoleum primer (which was thinned 10% with Mineral Spirits plus a little hardener, IIRC).

Re: Bringing the '65 back to life

Installed the A-pillar drip rails and did a little clean up work on the interior firewall today.

Re: Bringing the '65 back to life

You're making great progress. I like your choice of interior color. I'm going with a silver, also, but not the hammered. You seem to be in about the same place I am on the cab. I just flipped mine back upright this weekend also and will be working of the firewall inside and out and the interior. I'll be keeping an eye on your progress. Maybe I can learn something.

Re: Bringing the '65 back to life

Dad picked up the frame from the blaster today, and we hung it upside down from the rafters in the carport. After touching up a few small items and wiping the whole thing down with Acetone, we shot the first coat of primer. Tomorrow we'll flip it right side up, and shoot another coat of primer.
