This ’71 Ford Ranger stopped by the shop yesterday to say hello. We painted this truck about 4 years ago. The owner had done several modifications to the body himself before we started on this one and it really turned out great. This truck has a built 302 with a C4 transmission. A custom front bumper hood scoops, Cadillac tail lights, Fat Man front suspension with rack and pinion steering are just several of the modifications that were done to this truck. We are always glad to see customers out driving their hot rods and stopping by the shop to say hello.
Yesterday Jordan got back to work on the ’71 Chevelle that we have had in the shop for some while now. If you remember, this is the one that we painted the underside of the car Carolina blue. As of today we have the body in final primer and started blocking it out. Jordan worked on the rockers and put the final touches on the seams where the quarter panels meet the rockers and the seams where the quarters meet the back window panel. We also found a couple of dents in the rockers that were fixed at this time too. We will finish blocking the body out to make sure we have the body as straight as possible then prime these areas one more time before painting. Once the body is painted we will be spraying racing stripes on this one as well. Follow that with a good wet sanding and buffing. This should give Ron something to polish on for quite a while.
