    Thanks for all the kind words fellas. I had a request to show more detail on the trim tool we've been using, so thought I'd share it here as well. The gentleman that made it for me advised the other day (as I had requests to see if more were available) that he is long since retired, and anyone is more than welcome to use the details shown to make their own.

    The drum sign turned out super nice! It will be cool to see the 55 wagon in paint. I;m guessing it was hard to watch it leave but a guy has to do what he has to do. That trim tool is a great idea. I will put that on my to build list some day.

    Thanks Ryan!


    Not many pictures to show on our wagon progress, the body has been blocked out and Brandon is getting some touch ups done to get ready for one final epoxy sprayout..








    Vince has been given the thankless task of media blasting some of the remaining bare steel components so we can get some painting done of piece parts on this end. The condenser mount was media blasted, epoxy used to seal the wired edge, and some Evercoat 416 added and sanded smooth to form a slight radius fillet to finish it off.. We should be priming this coming week..

    The "real" final? As in getting ready for top coating?

    Vince has been getting all the core support parts prepped this past week, so last night was paint night, time for some epoxy primer..














    After epoxy:











    Even got some epoxy on the low-rider wagon's rear axles.

    Today Vince was doing more media blasting of additional interior pieces as well as some hand painting on the parking brake for the wagon. It had some bare steel still so he got most of that covered. The ratchet/gear was left alone as we thought the epoxy would anchor it permanently..








    Mike blocked out the pieces we primed last week, drilled some holes we'll need for the fan shroud, and got pieces hung up for the next round of epoxy primer.








    ….and please don't tell anyone you've seen her patio table in the paint booth!


    On another note, our resident shop ghost who likes to hide things has done something with the stainless trim door points. So I had put in a call to Mikey at The Stainless Shoppe. He had some original take offs in stock, and even polished them up for us. Now we have our work cut out for us in matching these!!

    Maybe I should just paint my 40 with that. That looks pretty nice!

    Thanks guys!


    Today I was block sanding some core support parts for one more spray. Making black powder out of black epoxy primer. Not all that exciting, so I didn't take any pictures.. But wait... it gets better! Brandon and Richard have been sanding as well, only they put some color on the roof today:

















    Clear:








    Can't wait for the green and some sunlight....
