Well another update. I was going to post up some pics but ive been working 8-10 hour days so ive been pretty beat lately. But anyways...
I got my braided flex lines for the front and rear brakes along with the new master cylinder. (sorry for the blurry pic. Camera was dieing.)
Those lines are going to look great with the red calipers.
Also got my powders in the same day. Tonight i decided to try out the silver vein. Ive been wanting to for a long time and i figured i would give it a shot. So i started out with this old air cleaner...
After sand blasting all of the crud off of it i cleaned it up and shot the silver vein onto it.
After it cured i shot 2 light coats of clear onto it and man it looks good.
The lid was really pitted and after blasting it did smooth up for the most part. But with the silver vein on there, you cant tell that it was ever rusted.
After seeing it done and how it really looks i fell in love with it. Ive been thinking about taking my heartbeat of America valve covers and doing them the same way. I think with a matching air cleaner it would give the motor a unique look while being something i did with my own 2 hands. Id start on them tonight except i have to work in the morning...
One day ill get this frame back together and start working on the motor. Trying to buy all of the parts to put it back together sucks. LOL I just hope i can get everything bought and ready to go. Id really like to paint the car this year but at least if i dont i can take my time to get everything else how i want it. Thanks for checking in. -Matt
