Good looking parts!

I decided to keep my trim strip. Easy to store and hard to find if you need one....

Re: My 1st 68 panel

Not much been going on between work and other priorities. I did get a couple hours this morning to finish knocking out the frame painting with the por15. Last time I was painting with it I was super careful not to get any in the lip of the can or on the lid figuring it would allow me to get it open easier this time. The 1st can I had I ended up popping holes in the lid and putting a screw in it after each use, but that got to be a pain and it wastes a lot of paint having to use something to pour it in. Well as you can see it did not matter that I kept the rims clean. I finally got it open but destroyed the can. Luckily I keep a case of new ones here for my sign paint mixing station so I just poured what was left in one of them

Re: My 1st 68 panel

With the body on the lift it blocks a lot of the light from the ceiling so rather than push the lower half out all the time to work on it I bought some LED retrofit bulbs for my halogen light stand. It had great light before but the heat would run me off pretty quick. These bulbs cost me about $30 for the pair on amazon and are pretty decent. Time will tell how well they last but I figured I would give them a try at least.

Re: My 1st 68 panel

Think I have decided to go ahead and buy a complete new engine for this thing and get it put in while I have the body off. I want a reliable cruiser and with a new crate it will give me some peace of mind.

I have used Jegs crate engines on two of my builds now. It really makes it easy and I have had good luck with them.

Re: My 1st 68 panel

Here is my Panel after about 15 years. Still have a couple more to go. I decided to powder coat my chassis though... WES

Re: My 1st 68 panel

Wes
Been watching yours back in the shadows for a while. Impressive work so far. I really like the back door setup but I have enough work just getting it back close to original

So far I am not a fan of powder coating. Every single thing I own that is powder coated has failed and it peels of in sheets once it has a nick in it and the weather gets up behind it. I was going to give it a shot on my seat frames because they would have been protected but once I got the pricing on that, I continued with my paint gun.

I am hoping the last time mine sees the trailer is when I take it for inspection (if I choose to not do historic tags) I am building it with the understanding that not every trip is going to go to plan so I don't see the need to spend big bucks on perfect paint and such. Heck, I can't even detail it here at the house since I have a 2000' lane that is either dusty or muddy. If I go to a car show, I would have to find a car wash 1st I am hoping it never sees the rain again but around here storms will pop up without warning leaving no other choice but to get wet.
