Lines, lines everywhere lines

IMG_3023 IMG_3021 IMG_3020Today the owner of the Chevelle dropped off the new stainless brake lines and gas lines. We carefully matched them up the factory ones, then installed them using the new clamps furnished in the kit. We have the new body bushings and the new body bolts should arrive next week. Once we get those, its back together with the body and frame.

Clearly, the glass is in

IMG_3024 IMG_3025We have been working on the Camaro over the past few days. We started by building the vent widows and painting the guide channels. Then the vents were installed, then the regulators in the doors. Then we did the quarter glasses. So far so good. We do have an issue with the left quarter glass. Its a bit sloppy. I think we are going to have to change out the old rollers. Its just not as smooth as should be. We still have to fine tune the adjustment on the glass, this can be the tedious part. Friday it goes to Alamance Muffler to get the exhaust installed.

Paint day

IMG_3018 IMG_3019 IMG_3026 IMG_3027Today we slipped the F250 into the booth to get the fender painted. As you can see when we painted the front bumper and grill, we also painted the fender. We had to trim it out anyway, so I just went ahead and painted it all. It did make painting it today a bit easier. We only had to put a couple of coats at the gap between the fender and door for color match then we cleared it.  Since tomorrow is Thanksgiving, we will be closed. So Friday we will put this one back together and get it back to the owner.
