yeah and all the metal repairs including the floors were installed with light tack welds and fiberglass.
man and some people think this s--t is good to go
fiberglass is horrible.
jason you need metal patch panels? i have leftover sheet metal from my front tubs...and that shait makes excellent panels...hell that's what the metal originally was intended for
schell, you have any more pics? build thread? i'd like to follow along, sing a song, ya know
I have a ton of pics and am gonna throw it up on my web site maybe tonight under Rob's 62 rag...
Cae is complete waste. We decided to throw the towel in on it and start another rag donor. Not only was these pics bad ,it was also a rag graft and he was told it was OG
ZZ....i have a 72 bus from some dude..come down and cut the window out...you can have it.
Appreciate the **** out of the offer man. I'll have to see if I can get a ride down there 1 of these days. These Fook'n back surgeries and being out of work for 2+yrs are killing my finances, so I had to sell my truck to get some chit paid. My car went to my daughter...shoot me
You know all to well about the out of work hurt thing...sucks
B J panhead raise.... Who's done ? After a few weeks of pondering the vert, I'm thinking of doing a 1.5-2" with c hair of caster adjustment added in. Only thing I'm not sure on is how guys are converting the steering to 2 knuckles on the lower connection points..... How/what is done to attach to steering shaft?
Don't forget the front apron mounts too.
And if your gonna do it it ain't a big deal but make sure you reinforce the s-- t out of the lower part of the frame head...
..oh yeah and while your at it...might as well remove your shifting tube and bushings and replace it...because after you done. Raising the frame head..it's a pain in the a-- to relocate the hole in the area needed to remove the rod with the beam up and in the way!!!!
..well not much air cooled stuff to report other than the normal work at the shop...got some new wheels on the dumpy and converted four speed is killer.
been working on the pro touring LS6 '69 camaro....holy mother of god,40 hrs in 2.5 days on this thing for her final show paint coat!!!
http://boston.craigslist.org/bmw/cto/2935105840.html Yeah, they'll be pounding on his door to buy that.....
...yeah sounds like he's from new england A1!!!

what i started with...it...coming back later for a cut:
i had it all painted before in oct. then i had him bring it back to me for the final cut and buff.
didn't like it so i took all of the paint right back off and repainted it...started it tuesday night and delivered it weds afternoon.
the pics of it now are right out of the booth,threw the tires on and shipped it.
who your f--kin daddy.
you can dip these pieces of s--t all you want but ALL of them have so much filler BEFORE i start on 'em it will contaminate the filler and steel....like a sponge.
dipping works well if they are clean and low on fillers and leads...other than that you have to blast em with low course sand or media.
this one i had too strip by hand as the other 72 i did i picked it up in 2 trucks.
the camaro pictured i had blasted because there some red flags that had me nervous..mind you we were told this car was ready for paint with minimal bady work...i sent it off to blasting to do the fenders wells...floors and misc s--t.
when i got it back it needed complete floors,firewall,dash,trunk,inner and outer wells and massive rocker patches.
unreal and it was supposed to be an in and out type of job...4 months later!!!!
