Back on the Camaro today. Yesterday we started the body work on the last few pieces that go on the car. The lower valence, the header panel and the two fender lower extensions. I spent a few hours yesterday on the header and the lower valence, finished them up today and knocked out the fender extensions too. When Chase finished up priming the Chevelle parts, we slid these Camaro parts in so he could lay down the last coats of primer on them. Next we will start blocking out these and other parts and start the FUN part. Laying down some color! We have an approval on the color so its a go.
Sorry for no update yesterday. It was just one of those days. But welcome back!! We have been working on both the Chevelle and the Camaro all week this week. Lets start with the Chevelle. The doors are off and the trunk is off. Chris has been removing all of the old seam sealer from the drip rails and the rear body panel. That stuff needs to come out to be sure that we seal up all the areas where water can get in as best we can. The bottom and top of the trunk and the inside and outside of the doors have all been sanded prepped and primed. Epoxy primer on the inside and out and slick sand on the outside only. Next step for those panels will be to star blocking out that slick sand to remove the waves and ripples from years of use and the ones that were put there when the metal was stamped out. Once that is done we will start fixing the dents in these panels. While Chase was priming these parts, Chris kept plugging along by sanding on the body. Its dirty work I know, but Chris just loves sanding.
