Man you’ve done some really nice work!
What product did you use on the firewall?
The door jams were a days work each. 1/8 round rod welded to the door edge and blended.
The smoothing plate I made and welded in. the firewall was body filler, then epoxy, slick sand taken down from 80 grit to 220 then 400. final coat of epoxy thinned to use as a sealer. The top coat is VHT chassis paint and then VHT satin clear. I have used this stuff on wheels and engines and its pretty bullit proof once it sets. I have a jeep I painted the aluminum rims gun metal gray. Its been 5 years of North west summers and winters and the stuff still looks like new. I know there will be people that say I should have bought something better.
Door gaps are right on time
hello nastyz world. back to working on the beater camaro as all my friends call it. Ive test fit all the new front sheet metal. i will have to relief cut the inner braces on both fenders to get them to go in enough to line up with doors. the drivers side is about a 1/16"on the brace, the passenger side will be a quarter of an inch. I also plan on moving the grill back in the valance about 1". I simulated with cardboard. The last picture is a test panel with light blue and a slightly darker blue blended on the lower side. I think this is my final answer for finished color.
I was able to get the brake booster and master cylinder installed. The Brake booster matches the engine color. This was many hours of sanding and stripping the originals. I still need to order a new master cylinder cover. The chrome one is rusted and pitted. I think I need to clean under the car.
I have made some progress. Its been awhile since Ive posted. the many hours of panel alignment, deciding the golden legion aftermarket fender was junk. I got tired of stretching and shrinking trying get it to line up to the door panel so the door could open without hitting the fender. So i cut the bottom off with the inner brace and repaired the original. So the body work is done and panels are aligned on everything but the front valances. I did add metal to the body gaps between the fender and door to close them up a little. hopefully in the next couple weeks I am ready for filler primer and first round of blocking on the car.
Gonna look mean
