    At least there weren't any more surprises under it! It's looking great!

    Thanks!

    OK, it's been a while since I've TIG welded, and got a little too much heat near the edge. Blew a nice hole, so used one of the practice pieces to cut out a patch..















    .....and I got a little heavy footed on the other end as well...









    Trimming for the patch's patch.























    The final pieces to weld...







    Weld dressed and factory relief added...







    A few more welds to dress and this will be done...

    A scene from Rocky 47 I think.... You see!! He's just a man!!

    Sorry Robert.. I didn't think it was possible.
    It's nice to know we can all make those mistakes..

    I like how you even tell your mistakes. Some people just leave all them out. Your tig welding still beats mine. I haven't done it in years. Someday I'll pick up a tig rig and do it again.

    Thanks for the comments guys. Personally I find you learn better from your mistakes, why not share them for others to learn as well...


    Cowl repair all complete...











    One more thin spot from the media blasting where we had removed the leaded seam...

















    Test fitting the patch for proper contour..











    TIG welded in place...

















    Started off with some SPI epoxy on the underside...











    ....and then the firewall











    .....as well as the new glove box door skin...











    The entire interior was primed by standing through the window openings...

















    Then the outside was tackled...

    That looks awesome! I'm sure that was a chore trying to not touch anything during the spraying process.

    No, still have some metal bumping and straightening to do...



    Glove box door work tonight....





    Well the epoxy has cured for about three days, time to put the glove box back together... The adjacent areas are scuffed for some official door skin adhesive..





    ....in the form of some leftover primer from this weekend..





    Good thing this gets covered up...





    Using the door skin hammer on the leather shot bag, the ends are folded first...











    and then the bottom flange...





    All together...

    Thanks!


    Well Cody posted up some pics today of the muffler "wrap" so I thought I'd add them here as a follow up for those that saw the post of us punching the stainless.





    He's using stainless exhaust front to back, with two transverse mounted mufflers behind the rear axle. Since they are tucked up inside the frame rails, a bit of air flow will be provided by the louvers..





    Note the "rolled" edge on the exhaust tail pipes. Cody says he isn't a fan of unfinished edges, and this car is loaded with such detail from one end to the other.





    Installed, the louvers facing the front should give nice air flow.





    We've got another detail to work on with Cody, and it's been a nice change of pace to set the rusty metal aside and help out on his build with the louvers we've done. Thanks for the challenge!
