A glass act

2013.01.02 - Chevelle (1) 2013.01.02 - Chevelle (2) 2013.01.02 - Chevelle (3)We are really closing in on the delivery of this stunning 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle. The last major task to complete was the installation of the rear glass, which was done today. While waiting on the glass installer guys to arrive, we spent some time dressing up the trunk area of the car.

The trunk floor, while solid, had a good amount of surface rust. Wanting to head off trouble before it could start we applied a rust converter to the area. A rust converter attacks the rust chemically, binding to and sealing it so that it stops the rust in its tracks. It is a wonder product and is perfect for applications such as this. You can see the rust converter painted onto the floor of the car in the first photo. After it dries we will repaint the trunk in the correct “splatter paint” as use by GM. Once that is done you will never know we had done anything at all to the trunk.

The last two photos, numbers two and three, show the car after the rear glass install. As you can see it looks perfect and the bright metal trim around the glass really sets off the black paint. It’s a real glass act if I do say so myself.

Hey … come on … it’s been a long time since I last used a bad pun.
