Well, well, well … look who’s back. The 1969 el Camino that we painted last year in our High Performance Finish is back in the shop for the final touch-up and check out before it is turned over to the owner for the last time.
This car has been subjected to some major renovations … starting with extensive rust repair. It also has a few carefully selected modifications to update it’s look without drastically altering it’s classic lines, such as removing of all the emblems and side marker lights, shaving of the drip rails, a 2-inch drop all around, single side glass, a custom interior and more.
Now that the car is back in the JMC AutoworX shop we can clean up the few problems that have cropped up since we had it last, most notably the reason it came back on a tow truck. The owner filled the car with fuel for the first time … and found the new tank we installed is defective and leaking around the filler neck. Annoying … but these things happen. Fortunately the place that sold the fuel tank is replacing the tank under warranty, but it means more delays in getting the car finished so the owner can begin to enjoy this beautiful car.
If you want a closer look at this stunning el Camino, stop by the Annual Shriner’s Drag Racing & Hot Rod Expo in the Greensboro Coliseum the weekend of February first and second. There will be lots of great looking cars on display inside where it will be warm and dry … a great way to spend a dreary February day. This will be one of the new cars presented by JMCAutoworX this year, and it’s a dandy.
