I have a great photo shot of my newly finished 63 sport coupe with a sound movie file of the first start up. I have no idea how to post it so if you want email me and I will send it to you. You can post it if you know how. Thanks.
I spent a month on my back scraping off 1/2" of undercoating. Thats when I found all the rusted floor boards that were never suppose to be there. I spent another month cutting, forming, reinforcing, and welding new sheet metal. then I filled all the seams and epoxied the whole thing.
I gutted the interior and built a complete front to rear console with 6 new gauges and a cd stereo. I sheeted the rear trunk opening and built a platform below the rear bench seat area. it now has 4 racing buckets and a hurst floor shifter. i recolored the door skins to match the interior scheme. that all took me another month and a half.
if anyone is interested i have a lot of parts i won't be needing now. a good set of original white front buckets and rear bench seats. a complete center console with all stainless and chrome. several front grills and rear stainless panels. extra gauge console. original wheels and caps. lots of other stuff.
Wish I had known before I spent the money for seats and having them covered.
I am doing some of the same things you have mentioned. I finally got the dirty side scraped and sand blasted....I sema sealed it today and going to paint the dirty side this afternoon (when I get off my lazy butt and brave the heat today).
I am hoping to paint the interior garnish modlings here in the next week or two and the inside also. Then a month or more on the body work.
One of these days.....I hope to find time to work on the motor and C4......well.....maybe I should say the money?
