Tomorrow we plan on trimming out the hood, doors and trunk on the ’71 Chevelle. Today we sanded them in preparation for that. We will seal these panels with a urethane sealer, then apply 3-4 coats of color then 2 coats of clear. Then next week we will be able to tape up the bottom side of these, then paint the top sides. Stay tuned tomorrow to see some color getting shot on here.
Today was a good day. We installed the steering column and had some good progress on mounting the Vintage air box. We have to run one more A/C line before we can button that up, but we are pretty close. We also wire the plugs for the gauges, and the turn signal switch. You can see the wiper switch has also been installed. When you get to this stage of the build things appear to slow down. Wiring is a bit time consuming as well as determining the routing of the A/C lines and heater hoses. The only thing you can do is just keep plugging along. Take it one step at a time and don’t rush.
