  These last 3 Months has been a busy. Building the hard drive array (for better video file control) and buffing, and working on these parts inside. It's more work to do these inside. Protecting the surrounding area, cleaning up, and vaccuming up nice and tidy in the house. I don't recomend doing this in the house, but, to make use of my time, it works for me.

  But, all in all this video I included a lot. All indoor, and all the parts. I still have lot's more to go, more than I thought when I started to buff. But, it all has to be done. This car is worth the detail, and demands a good... No, better word: "Best" job I can do. So, here is what's been going on too.

  Measuring for the two sewn centers, so they are even looking. The original material was rotted away from the sun. I replaced with the same material I did the seats. I also cut material to replace the vinyl under the doors, where the rug goes. (not shown)

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Glueing the material, using a rolling pin to flatten it out. Looks like a 1960's machine did it. The look i'm after.

  Glueing the material, rolling with a rolling pin (remember those?). Nice and flat. Machine looking..

  The back shelf board. Behind the back seat, under the back window. Should fit in nice, and look good. matches the seating material.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  The side posts covering. This snaps over the jamb edge. These are like 1/2 springs. Not plastic like today. They are woven metal, made to contour to the jamb and hold the center post finishing plastic covering. The old material was also rotted, and I removed it all. I have plans for this, but not yet. A little later after I think about it for a while.

  Buffing up more trim. I also bumped out the little dings. Probally not "that" noticeable, but I will know. Do it now, before the trim goes on.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  This is the trim around the radio and the heater controls. The left end butts up to the speedometer houseing. This was difficult. I am glad I purchased the rounded, small buff bobs from Harbor freight last year.

  Hello everyone. Moving right along with the trim parts prep and "The Shining" of the trim parts. Got a lot done, and I am finished the big rear trim piece between the taillights. Painted the flat black masking strips too. Looks nice, and is ready to go back on. Some other aluminum and stainless parts are done too. Here's whats happening..

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Finished buffing up the tail end peice between the tail lights. Had to use the small buff bob to get into the nooks and crannies.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Washed some of the stailness parts before buffing. These are the windshield wipers. YES, they are stainless, from front to back. Won't see thoses today huh?.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Buffing up the center post outside stainless trim. They had scratches... Now they don't...

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Nice?. Finished with these. They get wraped and stored for the spring-summer. This year looks like the car's going to be finished if nothing stops me.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  The buffed up wipers.. These turned out nice. Have to be careful buffing these. Don't want to get them snared in the buffing wheel. Could bend the metal.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Now, to do the rear trim painting. This took 6 days to complete. Very slow process. But, new masking paint is on and looks good. Check out the video. To show this in time lapse, the video had to be 5 times the normal time lapse. Thats how slow this process took.

  Nice.. The finished peice. it's ready to be install, and is safely stored until the spring and summer.

  Hello everybody!. It's been a while, but, I am making progress. Still working on the data files, now I can arrainge the drives and files better for storage. I have a bunch of additional drives, and now I can reunite some files together on the right drives for storage. On some drives there was extra space. I used this space to store larger files. I can now re unite titles for there own drives. But, that is behind the sceens stuff.

  But, I am still working on the aluminum and stainless trim. I have most of the items with the black making almost finished. A little bit more, then it's back to the stainless buffing. I have also purchased some new parts that the old is just way too gone. New carpet, weather stripping, window fuzzies, and a few other items. I will present them at another day... But, for now, here's whats been going on... Until next time everyone, Chow!

  This is the gas filler door. After sanding the areas that get "Masking" paint, I painted the flat black on. This was in not-so-good- shape when removed from the car. But now, looks good.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  The tail lights. After cleaning up the inside and replacing the bulb socket contacts, we replace the masking paint. Eack one, by hand. Careful to keep the paint inside the lines.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  The headlight houseings too. Again, sand where the paint goes careful not to sand too high into the polished aluminum.

  Hello everyone. I have been a bit busy. Life things have keept me away from the parts for a bit. Not to mention the weather too. I have also been busy with relocating some data, Tigs of it... That I am still doing. Inbetween all the other life stuff too. This first part of this year has been a busy one. I am doing a little buffing inside, little by little. Video will be uploaded when it's time.

  Last week, I discovered Ro-Dants in the little garage (the storage shed) where I had the reupholstered seats I did last winter. Had to move them as they could have been destroyed by the Ro-dents. But, I moved them over to Vic's until I am ready to install them, and fill more with stuffing. Here's a video on the things.... Stay tuned, more to come on the parts for this car. Chow!.

  Moving the reupholstered seats over to Vic's garage until I am ready to install and continue stuffing. They are safe, and out of Ro-Dants harm.
