The kid's swing set had a round type swing on one section that had broke down and came apart. I went to remove it and put a bench swing there and when I dropped a nut in the grass I got stabbed by a small screw driver. I only use that screw driver on glasses and I know I haven't had it in the yard let a lone out of the garage. I held it up and shook it at Cody and he grinned and took off. Nothing is safe.

The goal is get the whole thing recoated with epoxy primer then try my hand at painting one panel at a time.
    The only thing bad about panel painting is you can have varying results depending on how good or bad you painted each time.

    You are the third person in a day to tell me that, my neighbor used to work in a body shop, and he said same thing yesterday as did the Summit Racing tech when I talked with him. For now I will do the fenders in epoxy primer, and spray the rest of the truck intact. with epoxy primer, then put it all together and look into getting a professional shop to do the color coats. It's a acrylic paint and single stage so not clear coating!

    I got my upper hose and cut it to length. I found a lower radiator hose and a mid 60s big block chevy hose actually fits no modifications. I took the water pump off to clean up the alternator brackets and paint them. I also had to put a different fan on it since one fin was bent on it. I ended up having to move the radiator up some because the lower outlet of the radiator was hitting my sway bar tube. I then test fit the hood to make sure it would still go on.

    Next I cut the RH fender for an exhaust outlet.

    Next up was getting going on the actual exhaust. I got the LH cut out installed and went back from there. It's tight but fits. I wanted to do stainless but stainless ends will have to do. I still have to do the RH side.

    Yesterday I got the RH side exhaust done up to the muffler. I'll finish the exhaust cut out hole when I pull the fender off to paint it. I still have to trim the cut out down, and add a hanger to it.

    Last fall one of the boys' friends, knocked my driver's windshield garnish molding off a stand and it split and bent when it hit the floor. I had some replacements found but they wanted $150 for a pair. I decided I'd try and fix this one to save some money. They're really thin but I was able to get it fixed.

    Last night I got the pipes done for the RH side. Now I need to add the hangers and paint the pipes.

    Another thing that has driven me nuts with this car is how nasty the head light buckets have always been. I cleaned them up and soaked the RH side in evaporust over night. I then cleaned off some spots of tar or under coating and old paint and re soaked it. The pic of it is after the initial soak. So much nicer than before.

    I came up with a way to hide my bumper bracket holes. Most people never see the turn signals on these cars since they're directly above the head lights. I decided to find a nice looking light to put in this spot. I found some housings on the bay and have ground contours into them to get them to set flush on the fender. I need to take a little more off each outer side because I feel the lights angle in. That's because the fenders contour in towards the grill.

    Hope you didn't bust up the kid too bad for Ben and your molding lol. All that little stuff takes forever, but the headlight buckets do look real nice and I like what you did for blinkers.

    Nah, I didn't even harass him. I saved that for my kids. Luckily the lights covered the holes. I'm kind of thinking about painting the bases the color of that area but the chrome doesn't look bad either imo. Yesterday I finished the passenger side exhaust pipe now I just need to add a few hangers. I also started making my last PS pump bracket. Once that is on I can put the front of the engine back together. I'm trying to decide to mask off the flames or just paint over them. That's a huge time suck to get the flames painted so IDK currently. I need to get the fenders painted so I can bolt them back on the car. Unfortunately, there is no radiator support on this car so the inner fenders also support the radiator. I did add some pieces that bolt to the frame the support the lower portion of the radiator. Hopefuuly today I can make more head way.

    Have you considered maybe having the flames done in vinyl?

    By the way nice work on the exhaust.

    Mike, I didn't think of that but that is an option. I didn't get it done for goodguys and I haven't addressed the flames yet. I should get back to work on it but my other priorities list didn't stop growing so I'll see how I can balance them out.

    My time has been very limited lately with everything going on. The kids are just finishing county fair and 4H. There was a lot of hours spent getting projects finished and a lot of running around done.

    I continue to try and get work done to the 40 though. Clint wanted to help so I showed him how to apply some brush able seam sealer, and also how to start installing the kill mat sound/heat insulation.

    I finally got the dash painted and had a friend add a silver stripe between the 2 colors. I am now trying to find the glove box door hardware so I can stick it back on. I painted the windshield garnish moldings, the dash stash box hinges, steering wheel top and bottom covers, and the driver's door garnish molding. I have to fix some cracks in my steering wheel and then I'll get it painted.

    The boys went to a yard sale and bought 3 boxes of previously crappily put together models last week. One of them painted something in the garage and got over spray on my dash. I got it to buff out but what a pain in the rear.....

    I did get my American Shifter, shifter installed. Talk about a crap show. It fought me every bit of the install. I had to make a new bell crank lower to be able to get this to work with my larger trans cooler lines. Now I can finish the trans tunnel and put the dash in?
