Re: 69 cyclone

well its been a long time coming but its finally here. got the cyclone all finished and looks incredible . hopefully get to show it a few times next season as this season is drawing to the end, going to hit the streets a couple times before the end of October then put it to sleep for the winter. what a ordeal trying to restore this rare beast. but it all seems worth it now.

Re: 69 cyclone

That's gorgeous. I had a 68 MX Brougham, best car I every had. Drove 200,000 on original drivetrain but IA winters took their toll until it could no longer be repaired. That's a great job you've done on your 69.

Re: 69 cyclone

got all the back end of the car assembled. looks great,seems like everytime I touch something I need something else to assemble it.hopefully the rest of the car turns out as nice as this.

Re: 69 cyclone

I made a tin template in behind the breaks then bonded the tin to the plastic,while plastic gluing the cracks.let it set up then used a thin coat of filler over the crack,sanded lightly then primed with high solid primer.then painted with sem brand vinyl and plastic tuxedo black dye. repairs are hard to see,and almost impossible once in the car.time consuming but cheaper then buying another one..

Re: 69 cyclone

The Cyclone is looking good!

Could you explain more how you repaired the console? Did you use some kind of epoxy? How did it take to paint afterwards?

Re: 69 cyclone

well its been a long time coming but its finally here.the cyclone is finaly painted original candy apple red,and looks spectacular.super straight,and amazingly smooth finish.got a long winter ahead of re assembly,and adding stripes and all the new parts I have been collecting.still got a lot of work ahead of me but wow what a transformation from when I originally got it.
