Score is right..especially  now with the prices being out of sight on paint and supplies...I have  my paint and harderns and clear...bought it on line from Calif. ....just need to finish up body work....

Really/ paint prices are crazy, I have purchased all my supplies I just hate to take it apart to paint it, I want to enjoy it a little first

Nice job.  It reminds me of my 27 chevy cowl I did, widening it  like that.  You definately have my respect wether you want it or not my friend.

Thanks guys, nothing most of you haven't done before. Agravating no more than I did weds had me locked up yesterday. >:(  If I were going to run fenders I would have left the rad cap or use a hood ornament. I think with my type build, a smooth deeper shell suits me more.

Chopper, glad your feeling better. That stuff bites!  Has your son done any work to the Camaro yet?

Thanks, Sammons, and thanks for asking about the Camaro. The furthest we got before Christmas was to clean a lot of the dirt and gunk from the engine and front suspension, it was caked on, but good. We started to take apart the brake system. I am going to see if he wants to work on it this weekend, if not, I may just do a little myself. I am also going to suggest he become a member of RBT.
Tighten it up til it strips, then back it off a quarter turn

Good idea!   One good thing about gen 1&2 Camaro's, every part is availible.  A lot of NOS parts still out there too, along with GM licensed Goodmark restoration parts.

Finally after two weeks of life getting in the way, I got back on the coupe today.  ;D No visitors, phone calls or texts. I felt good and the weather was great, 83 and calm. ;)  Finished the left door jamb and those tedious little bottom corners. Wire brushed all the little rust pitting on the rear qtr, and give it a good DA sanding. Decided it would take too much expensive epoxy primer to fill it (not to mention the pain in the a$$ that stuff is to me >:(), so I skim coated it with Evercoat Xtreme. Worked out well and faster that I thought,  blocked it down and give it a coat of Duplicolor rattle can primer for now. Tomorrow (if luck holds) I'll go onto the wheel tub.

Thanks fellas, it was good to get back on it. I hope this warmer weather gets to you guys, spose to be 91 sun :D

A reminder of simpler times, y'all know I don't care for expoxy primer. My brother was doing a remodel for an old widow, she asked if he could dispose of some chemicals her husband had in the garage. It was old Ditzler lacquer stuff.(lucky devil) He called and ask if the primer would still be good, and would work for his tailgate repair. Told him as long as it was still liquid and stirred up with out chunks, go for it. Ditzler discontinued this lable around 1969, this stuff is at least 48yrs old, mixed right up and was smooth as silk when sprayed, dried quick and sanded easy. ;D  Sure wish I could find some old stock!

Note the A-L-E, for use over/under Acryics-Lacquers-Enamels. ;)  Yep I know, living in the stone age. But I still love it!

How good is it that the person who found it could use it and not just throw it away. Your coupe is looking good. The weather has been beautiful here for a week but I'm stuck working on the Bobcat and letting it dry out so I can pull the tractor out. Goal once more is to get the Chevy 4  and tranny together by May. ::)

The 35 is looking good. I know the weather helps with my aches, and I seem to get a lot more done. I have a 35 ford coupe I am finishing up so I can bring my Buick home for awhile.

Ghost, pics man pics! I'd like to see the Ford when you get done ;)

I had to take a break, tweeked my shoulders from sanding. I got the inner tub done today and screwed up BIG time. I couldn't talk the old dog into going in the house, so I let him stay parked by the steps. Opened the windows, put the fan on high down wind and started sanding the filler with the DA/80grt. I couldn't get my hand to smear the mud on good so it was a bit deep to start with. Went to wire brush(stand up electric) my rear lower control arm access cover and the motor didn't start, just smoke. It was completely full of dust., blew it out, oiled bearings and off to the races again. Got done, some light hand sanding and eventually in primer.
 
I turned around to go into the kitchen to refill my ice tea.......I failed to latch the door in the begining >:( and Duke had enough dust, pushed door open and went in. My windows were open and ceiling fans on. The wind had changed and all that bondo dust coated the WHOLE upstairs. Tomorrow will be devoted to clean up.

Can breath clean air again :)
