Nope, I'm affraid it's on the back burner for quite a while. Trying to keep up on the bills. It is looking like a battle I might not win.  :(

I didn't feel like doing much, but I managed to clean up the C3 valve covers my brother sent me. Only took two days  ::)   I thought I would start out trying Mothers Aluminium Wheel Cleaner spray. It worked better than I thought it would, sure took the fuzzy corrosion off quick. Scotch bright pad and then buffed them and then a quick rub down with Mothers Aluminum Wheel Polish, (well not quick for me)  ;)  They look good enough for me any way. Usually these valve covers (C1-C3) don't polish well due to the alloy used in them, discolored spots and flaky like pitting. Most people end up glass beading them.

I hope to get the gumpsion up to actually work on the car soon :)

Add: last 2 pics. Truth in photo's ;D  You can see what i'm talking about in these close-ups.

Clean and well detailed engines in drivers are way cooler than a spotless over accessarised engines in a show cars. Those are nice and real.

They look plenty good to me Sammons, and what Sixball said is right!
Tighten it up til it strips, then back it off a quarter turn

Score!!!   Dupont automotive finishes sold out in 2013 to Axalta coatings system, then under Cromax coatings. From what I got they are/have phased out Centari single stage, keeping the centai bc/cc, Cromax and Imron as Fleet coatings. The man said look for old stock. Local area CarQuest had one quart old stock in back. They said they could only find one gallon of 793s gloss hardner and it was expensive, no pints found. Yesterday I went down to my buddies mech shop and was telling him I should have bought the paint for my coupe  when it was still availible. He said follow me, he went up on top of his storage shelf and pulled down a gallon of it. He used about 2" out of it last year. Then he pulled out 2 pints of 793s and 3/4 of a gallon of mid temp reducer and GAVE it to me. ;D  Called CQ back up and they sold me the quart for $57. So if I live long enough to get the car ready to paint, I have what I want for $57. Can't beat that with a stick! ;)

Man I've been worried about finding that paint since I started this project. I'm pushing my self as hard as I can. I can't wait myself to see it in Black. My buddy Travis that gave me the paint was on me to hurry up and get the body far enough along to pull it. He said he (insisted on) would bring down the boys from his shop to lift off the body and take the frame down to his place to rebuild the rear suspension for me. So as soon as I get the roof finished and get the left door built and fit i'll do that. My friend Tom has a nice low roller bench that I used for my 5w, so I'll set the body on it to finish the body work while Trav is doing the rear end.

Trying to get back to work. I need to finish up the left door jamb but my hands are just not cooperating. So yesterday I decided I had to do something so thought I would fill in the rad cap and emblem hole (pick up grill) Finally figured out how to pull the welder trigger with my thumb.  I guess it had to be done sooner or later anyway. Now I have to finish welding up the extension on it.
