Re: 65 Coupe 289

Nice progress. Awesome that you keep it on the road as much as you can.

Re: 65 Coupe 289

Thank you, yes I'm obviously not going to come out ahead by selling, so to justify the cost and time involved, I have to get the miles out of it.

Re: 65 Coupe 289

Got the inner wheel well patches fitted and welded in, and started on my outer wheel well lip repair. I don't really have enough of the original to work with, so I think I'll clamp the patch to my new fender, tack some rod to the back and then weld it on the car. Not really sure how else to do it. Also a photo of another piece I patched awaiting cleaning.

Re: 65 Coupe 289

Got the wheel well patches welded on and the quarters tacked on in a few places. Fit everything up to see if I was in the ball park, its not great but its not terrible either.

Well, no progress the last few months. I drive it a bit, but I have golden gloves in January and that is consuming most of my spare time. It's starting to cool off and that will probably allow me to get some more work done. Still need to finish the bodywork on the quarters, and it looks like I'll have my neighbor paint it. I'll keep it updated when I do!

Re: 65 Coupe 289

Alright, golden gloves are done, I have bought and sold a couple cars and I'm working on a hot rod to pay for the paint, so time is still a little thin. BUT I've managed to get some work done in the last month. Still have some welding to do, and some patches on the bottom of the doors, but I believe I can finish the last of the welding in a day, and my paint tip wont be in until mid March so I'll take my time cleaning things up. I'm not a bodyman, but I'll be damned if this thing isn't one color by summer.

Re: 65 Coupe 289

This is a repost of the video in post #41, I don't know how to edit an old post to fix the broken link.

Re: 65 Coupe 289

Got my super professional paint area setup. Not really, This is just to get some of the stuff in epoxy while I wait to get my car in a booth. I know there are some awesome cars getting painted on this forum, so keep in mind...this is a daily driver, and I ain't no painter. I'm a decent sander so hopefully I can polish this turd!

Re: 65 Coupe 289

Still just trying to get done what I'm able to do at the house. Went and thoroughly washed the car, then took off the fenders and front pieces. With any luck I'll be able to put them in epoxy today.

Re: 65 Coupe 289

Hey one question, looking at this concourse restoration (which I am NOT doing haha) and noticed they did primer, then seam sealer, then paint. Seems simple enough since the rear sheet metal is new on my car. Any tips on this?

Re: 65 Coupe 289

I got the fenders, valance, and filler panel in epoxy, I suppose I'll do the hood soon and then we'll see about painting the car here. If I can get an extra set of hands this weekends I might just do that. These parts still need some work, but I wanted to get the filler and bare metal spots covered before I get moisture problems.

Re: 65 Coupe 289

It's too humid to paint, so I got some body work done on one of my fenders. This is the largest patch I'll have to do, its done except for glaze. This is probably it for today.

Re: 65 Coupe 289

Got the car moved to a covered garage while I paint it, it's nice to have friends that will loan you a shop! Got everything stripped off except the glass, need to do a little welding and then its time to clean up the jambs and spray them.

I've decided to spray the trunk with bedliner, not sure what product I'll use but if I buy enough I'll try to do the roof and maybe the floor, and probably the wheel wells.
