number one is in a holding pattern right now. may as well du werk elsewhere
fixin body gaps:
amazingly solid...magnet sticks everywhere. TONS of crap primer on though, she definitely wasn't nowhere near ready for paint.
didn't initially plan on it, but went ahead and started pulling windows...ugh. good thing I hate money...
LOL. Definitely no arches this time.

I know it'll be gone eventually, but I want to drive it awhile first. Learn all its quirks, advantages, disadvantages, weak points, whatever...way too much focus on rocco #1 at this point to even think about an engine swap here anytime soon.
REALLY wanted bodywork done and paint on this in time for cincy...just made a to-do list pre-sowo on rocco1, and...well...****. wtb time. and multiplicity. yeah, yeah, that'll do it. just need more me.
reality says I'll be at cincy in a 2013 CC unless I can hitch a ride with someone else *cough*ottodanmaypetebeesomeoneelseinncwitharocco* cough*
man...this thing is just primer over paint over primer over paint, and wasn't none of it done right.
one more block, one more prime, and she should be ready for some color.
How 'bout now? ...... Now?..... Can we drive it now?
I have seen this too many times, the job done wrong, over and over again....ten they wonder why it looks like a$$!
No choice but do as you did and take off as much as possible, looking good now though!
man. after much, much, much work...she is white. photographic evidence would be awesome, I know. I promise to provide some. later don't have any yet. I will say though, I freakin LOVE candy white. and now my RA's look like doo doo on there.
Got several projects in the works this week...at some point I fully plan on pulling her out of the paint booth and sanding/buffing/installing windows....and dare I say it, DRIVING.
oh yeah, I did drill out the bumper shocks and collapsed them today. that took a whole 5 minutes. no pic of that either

Surf to Surf Tomorrow
Got a couple hours in last night.
Some parts prepped/painted:
Handprint in fresh jam paint, doh!
Engine bay before, couldn't remember if I had a pic:
Random, dunno...was drinking.
More engine bay
That car deserved what you have done; it is a clean car that was painted waaay too many times. I'm happy to see this work finally happen to a well deserving car.

thanks...I'm really enjoying it, such a nice history behind it and all.
didn't get near as much done as I wanted this weekend. got about 4 hours in saturday, then went out and drank so much that my ass didn't leave the couch today. still lots of detail work to do, and still gotta iron out some cosmetic details. and of course, spend more money. but, if I actually hook all the lights and the battery back up, I should be able to drive her again
