This is the ’71 Chevelle that we have been working on for a while now.  The owner took the car to his mechanic to get the last few mechanical things buttoned up. It came back today for us to finish up the last few things we need to do. Today we installed the hood and started building the front end. Keep an eye on this one as we wrap it up. Its is a real head turner.

All sealed up

We chose to brush it on instead of spraying it. This allowed us to get it in all the seams and around the lower lip. Ford put a flexible rod in the lower lip before rolling the end over to keep it from crushing. It also allows water to sit in there along with dirt. This is a great formula for rust. So, in an effort to keep rust at bay we also seam sealed the entire lip. Hopefully, these will never rust again. This is where we stopped today. Tomorrow we hope to get the bedliner sprayed on these. Next week we will spray the epoxy and slick sand  on the outside. Then, the block party starts.
