i got an early Father's Day gift.
Man, those cabinets and led lights are sweet!
I had an 81 back in 95. Since then I been wanting a 70 to 73. I traded my heritage softail for this 71. Probably another 2 years and it will be done. At least to a point of Driving and doing some Cruz nights. Thanks for the response.
i worked on the parts to get ready for the strips. i found out that i had to base/clearcoat all the panels. i sanded down both sides of the trunk. i will fix the bottom with blue and clear. then i sanded the trunk filler panel and the spoiler. I took off the hood to sand it and noticed multiple spots where the hood has hit the cowl and radiator support. so now i have to fix all that and blend in the blue and re-clear the bottom of the hood. i didn't have enough time this weekend so i hung my plastic to enclose the garage before painting the rear parts. here are some pics.
and the plastic paint booth
hood repairs - found a crack in first pic
I also sprayed filler primer on all the spots of the hood above. i will sand the top of the hood and front header panel then base/clearcoat the parts. I will also try to shim up the front fenders on the cowl and radiator support to help get a little clearance. Thanks for checking out my progress.
Last weekend i used my new airbrush gun to paint in all the holes seen in the bottom trunk lid. when i sprayed it it didn't get in there very well and when the trunk lid was opened, you could see primer in the holes. so i sprayed base in them and touched up some spots that were bad too. next i cleared the trunk. i ended up spraying too heavy and it had some bad runs with all the raised parts on the trunk lid. I ended up sanding down the runs and re-sprayed the trunk in clear the next day.
I sanded the primed spots on the underside of the hood, then sprayed black base to cover. I also started the wet sanding of the hood on the top on Saturday. During to final sanding and drying of the hood, i noticed multiple cracks on the windshield side of the hood. one crack goes through to the bottom as well. So i will have to repair that this weekend. Thanks for checking out my progress.
Nice work, love blue Camaro's and is that a Eddie Motorsports rear trunk hinge kit??
