  This week I only had one day to work on the car. Last Sunday... Had to work Saturday. This weekend, I have Sat and Sunday off, but, they are calling for thunder stormes. We will see how the weather goes. I have some pictures from Sunday. It was a good day last Sunday. Got a lot done. This week end we work on the rear seating inside, and hopefully, the leaf springs. Here's some pictures from last Sunday.

  First we have to remove the old seam sealer. Get it ready for new sealer.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Next, we prepair the drain holes and the covers. These are really used in the MFG process, and they are supposed to be available for the end user. When was the last time anyone actually used them?. Other if your car is pulled from a river......

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Removing the rust, as much as possible. But, it never all comes off. Rusty Metal Primer is the best for this area.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Now, we disc sand to get a bigger bite of the area to remove. All paint dosen't have to be removed. This area will be covered with trunk liner, and it's really a protection measure.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Remember this area was "bent in"?. Was caused by stuff hanging out the trunk and bouncing on the way to be taken for use. I am bending them back.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Now, on the other side. Yes, using a car's jack to push up the area.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  I suppose this area was the most watched... Another area that will not be seen. I plan to put the trim back on spruced up, although I can't do nothing about the broken aluminum, at least at this point.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Finally getting to install the spring area rail cover. Will look good when it's done.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Grinding down the welds. Smoother, and getting off the welding slag.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Seam sealer on, cleaned, and ready for the primer. Sorry about the blurred pic.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  The thing I am using is called a "Scuff Pad". It's used to prep for painting other than sanding.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  After cleaning the old undercoat, removing the cracked and pieling undercoat, Then, also cleaning with thinner and a rag, we spray a new undercoat. Once this is all done, I will also paint with black gloss to make the water run off better and faster.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Here is what a lot of people have been waiting for. Application of the first primer coat.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Yes, this area too... Still more work here, but again, not a area going to be seen. For protection.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Here's a little better shot..... The sun has moved away a little bit....

62's Trunk Quarters Work Vid 20

  This weekend was a good weekend. Monday I was off and rain was forcasted, and it did a little raining, but I was able to get a few hours in on Monday... I know way back in my mind that I had to tackle the task of masking the headliner. It is in decent shape, but, there is some attention to it, but that can be done after the car is painted. So, I know I had to find some way of masking the complete headliner. That was not a easy task, and took most of the day saturday. After that was done, and it's really not good enough yet around the doors. I will have to tweak it in later days. But for now, perfect for what I was planning to get done this weekend.

  I had to go over a little bit of the back panel from light to light. Seems I missed a few places, and a second coat dosen't hurt. So, here is some pictures and a video of saturdays activity with the restoration of this car.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Had to bend up the clips of holding the bottom of the liner. I also had to do this to see how the outside trip is secure.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Liner has a metal channel alone the the liner material 'rips" on to. Once this is messed with there is no putting it back. I was also looking for the lace clips to replace the lace. That is available at just about 4 dollars a foot... yea, a foot.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Top is push on pry off. The bottom is nuts accessable from under the headliner.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Now, to mask the rest of the back window, as this area is also to be painted.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  The complete area. Gonna have to re-check when painting again. Don't want any paint hitting the liner.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  same on the other side. Sorry for the blurry image.
