#1042 pictures
« on: June 26, 2006, 11:23:45 pm »
I've been too darned busy to start a thread here.  I picked the car up on April 19, but because of other projects it sat in the trailer for about 6 weeks before I could start working on it.  Now that I have a bit of time I hope to get some pictures up for the masses.

Here's the car when I picked it up at hurricane

First thing was to remove all the aluminum panels.  I wrote on the back sides of all the panels.  I not only marked their location, which would be fairly obvious upon reinstallation, but the ORDER in which they went on so as not to overlap something incorrectly.

Body filler in the seam areas.  Turns out the seams were better than I thought and I ended up sanding out most of the filler that I had added there.

Hood filled on edges and gapped.  I did the same to the doors and trunk before removing the body to start on the mechanicals.

Took the body off the frame.  My wife and I were able to lift the body off with ease.

I ordered the ceramic coating option on the headers and sidepipes, but asked for them to be delivered uncoated so I could test fit everything first.  As it turns out they fit fine so off they came and they went back to Hurricane so they could have the coating applied.

All the battery cables, E-brake cables, fuel line and brake lines are in.  I added a driveshaft safety loop and it's ready to have the cockpit tub permanently installed now.

Aluminum panels are reinstalled onto the cockpit tub and it is on for good.  The steering shafts are mounted, the throttle cable is routed, and the master cylinders are mounted up.  The brake lines are not properly secured yet.

The engine compartment is starting to look like it's supposed to now.  The aluminum inner fenders are mounted, the master cylinder reservoirs are mounted, the radiator and hoses are in and engine accessories are starting to land in their proper places.
