Same here Buddy if I don't screw up more than twice. lol
I remember finding a 74 road runner IN TOWN for $1000. A deployment goes by, another month and then the wife is setting up an inflatable sprinkler slide for our 2 year old and she asks, “Where did this road runner come from? Did you buy another car?” ...hehehehe
My friend Richard Mowery helped me carve up the firewall of the 74rr and my 76 /6 stick Aspen and then we went to the backwoods junk yard and got all the A/C ductwork from some 70’s chargers and a drug dealer’s Diplomat for the Aspen, replacing windshields, rewelding floor boards and steel dash ducting (under the cowl of the Aspen) and cutting and welding sheet metal from other derelict cars to patch up rust holes was awesome!!!!!!!!!!!! I need to finish though, I have let college get in the way.
An investment Greymouser7 looking after your wife's future. It will never go down in value only up. Better than letting your money sit in the bank collecting about 0 interest each year. And tell her your worth it. Hope that helps or your in the dog house. lol
Where do i begin. Dragged home a 1967 dart when i was living with my parents and they said i would never finish it. I did the wheel tubs because i had to repair floor. Custom built some 15x10 rims because i wanted dog dish hubcaps. Designed and built a disc brake setup for the 8 3/4 because someone said it was not possible. Narrowed a c body 8 3/4 and recut splines on axle with bridgeport. Installed a hydroboost setup from an 01 ram diesel truck because of low vacuum. Switched to electric power steering from a nissan cube because i wanted header clearance for a future big block swap.
Wow I guess it would be hard to just pick one. Good job...
My greatest achievement at this point is being about "halfway" through the body and paint process. I had some small amount of help from other people yearas ago but it got to the point where i had to finish it myself as I am sure it always does with body and paint. i got the trunk, underhood and doors and windows cut in,and I was just showing the wife my cut in work on the door openings and said "If I can get the rest of the car looking like this Ill be good. I can wrench and rebuilt engine trans front end exhaust, and I can do electrical, body and paint is a learning curve for me.
I'm just the opposite I do body and paint but not running gear. Damn you should have been my neighbor.
You might say I am slowLOL! Friends ay "it looks good when are ya spraying it" I say "it isn't ready yet..." I am at the final body work bfore the second coat of primer, you know where you are blocking and filling the "small issues" my goal is to get the second coat of primer and block that without having to mud anything...
Would love to help I like sanding and blocking. Are you using a guide coat? not to tell you what to do with your car just some people don't know what that is.
Yes, I have used a guide coat and will use one on the second coat of 2 K. I have a question, on the sealer does that get sanded or is it spray on ,let dry then paint?
Don't have to sand sealer as long as you don't wait more than half an hour to apply the base color and at about 70* don't put the base color on till the sealer has dried for at least 15 minutes. Putting paint on or primer or sealer or clear to fast can cause problems just as much as waiting to long. Lots of guys on FABO and me would be happy to help just ask.
Your using Epoxy primer for blocking and re priming?
I epoxied the first coat over bare metal, then a round of filler then 2 K over that and now i am after the small filler spots then I plan another coat 2K than block. Keep in mind the sanding, i know it sounds like thick layers of primer but most of it has been sanded and sanded...the car is rust free but the flanges from the quarter and lower patches etc have filler, plus all the dings etc. there is more filler than I would have liked but it is rust free.
I'll PM you.
Cool I was thinking we are probably Hijacking the thread LOL!
Wow rust free is something not to many of us has seen in an old car and glad you have one. I know thick layers of primer get sanded down not a problem should have a nice ride when your done.
I think your box is full I can't PM you.
Where is your build thread!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
dodgedifferent2 67 dart progress It looks like i never kept it up to date. As i felt nobody was interested at the time. I did have a thread about disk brakes. also one on the rim widening had one about the electric power steering but nobody seemed to care and i never continued with it.
If you can would love to see what you have done so please some pictures and how you did it would be great.
First acheavment was putting 354 Heni in my Dart , second adding a/c .
