Lol, my body guy says 2 more weeks one more time I’m gonna strangle him!!!!
LOL...I can't imagine woody80Z28 would want to be strangling himself
Wow, John. I was going by an old photo to figure 1" of clearance. But I'm amazed it has 2.5" more than I thought. I'm actually thinking about solid engine mounts. Ran poly last go around and will either reuse them or go solid. Not sure yet.
I've done the rough body work on this car, but I've learned my lesson and a friend is doing the finish work and spraying it. I did all the body work on my Beretta and it looked great for a few years...but it has shown up with time. Not letting that happen now. This friend has done collision repair on the wife's car a couple of times and he's damn good.
So this thing is actually ready to go on the trailer now! And the body guy isn't ready, again. Fuuuuuuu
Put a winch mount on the trailer. Did a little build thread for it. haha
Of course, the maiden loaded voyage wasn't even my car... My father sold his old house and had to get his Firebird out of there before closing. And my body guy is still dragging ass...he says a couple more weeks...
The raptor liner looks really good, especially in the engine bay, did you spray that straight on top of your epoxy primer, or did you put a coating of paint between them
Yes, right on top of the epoxy.
Minor miracle alert! Car went off to paint jail after almost 2 years of waiting for a spot. Nice to see it in some daylight. And get the room back! It's been sitting around almost untouched forever.
Race ramps worked awesome. I love the open center of the trailer too, makes it easy to strap the car down. It may come in handy as a "lift" if I need it, too.
Quick update I'll elaborate on soon:
Camaro is back home from the paint shop! Without paint... So maybe I will be painting this one myself too.
You can see the new truck. Had to replace my old beloved beast with this extended cab. Can't complain about the 8.1/6spd manual combo though. And this little turd ain't so bad either!
NO PAINT???? Drat!
Good job on the kid!
One trick I have learned load my car. With the trailer hooked up, I place a block of wood under the trailer jack and lift the front of the trailer in the air a little which lowers the back. This help to give a more friendly incline to the trailer.
