Saturday morning .........................

Should be a fun day. Going to shoot the color on the parts washer.
Its a Ford tractor blue. Its really going to pop when it lays down on the parts washer.

I did start another thread last night looking for some pictures of the corner under the door hinge post, The front three layers on the long.

http://www.914world.com/bbs2/index.php?showtopic=196524

Bob and Mark hooked me up. So after I shoot some color on the on the parts washer I'll begin to start designing the parts.
Coffee and pondering.

I have odd day off this week. Wednesday. So I might spend some time at the fabrication shop to see what they have for weapons. I need to buy another sheet of 18 gauge any way.

I forgot to mention. If you want to practice painting. Using VanSickle implement paint is the best.
Its old school so it takes 12 hours to recoat. But its cheap and it lays down real nice.

I am lucky. The shop I rent is way out in the country so I don't have any issues with the vapors and smell. But I don't want to wear out my welcome. I'm only going to shoot epoxy primer and parts here in my paint shack.
The owner of one of Portland's major auto paint suppliers lives about 5 miles away. So when it comes time to shoot color on the car I'll take him up on using his gillion $$ paint booth.

Ryan's coming up from Silverton to dial in a pile of MPS's and tweek his car tomorrow. So I'll be able to shoot another coat tomorrow if need be.

Even though its cheap paint. It teaches you to keep the gun moving. And how to tinker with different pressures and settings to get the atomization your looking for.

While I was painting Super In-Law was tinkering with the lathe I bought last month.
Do I really need it ? Probably not. I wanted more for fixing than making.
But at $300 I couldn't pass it up.
Tool Whore.

That's a viper-jet washer! Used to have one... Good piece of equipment!

Did some phone work on Monday. I was hoping to catch a passenger long before the holes were punched/cut out. Not to be. They just did a run of 56 pieces. The gentlemen that stamps them out said it would be over a year before the next run. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif)

So back to using both ends of a passenger long flipped upside down. Or seeing if I can get the fabrication shop to create the piece I need.
I'm thinking of replacing the bottom completely. Working around the pressed area for the hand brake. My biggest concern is creating the lip to spotweld the outer long too.
On the upright portion I'm thinking of going right to the edge of the big oblong hole.
What is that hole for? Didn't we determine it was a form release or something like that?

If I can get the shop to create the piece I'll probably have them make 6 of them just in case I need them in the future. We'll see.

First I cut off the bottom ..............

Still amazes me how crappy the workmanship was on that front clip repair
back in the day..................

Then I cut thru the first layer to remove the seatbelt nut .............

Attached Image

What that shows you is what happens when you don't use weld thru primer.
What you see is that portion folded down after I cut only thru the first layer.

So I cut off a portion on the inner box layer. The rust was primarily isolated
to the bottom.

Then you see where the day ended ................

Cut out the rotten portion of the long wall.
I know some will say that I'm probably being too critical and should just Ospho and paint.
But I plan on using this car as my daily driver here in Portland. So with all of the rain here in PDX I don't want to have
to restore it again for another 20 years.

You can see in this picture our cheater bar.

Back 10 years ago when we were prepping the car for my son Robert.
We installed a portion of angle iron between the front wall and the floor crossmember.
It served us well. I haven't decided if I'll replace it with a stiffener kit or leave it for sentimental reasons.

Here's a shot looking into the wheelhouse.
Whats the best practice of rustproofing this cavity?

I have a simple question! Because of all the steel patchwork, is there any concern for an unequal weight balance in the vehicle?

Good question...........

We'll see when it goes on the corner balance scales.
The passenger side was done in the same manner so in that regards its balanced.
Both sides have the piece of angle iron in them.

10/26/2012

Stopped by HF to pick up consumables. Spot weld cutters, 7/64 bits and cutting wheels.
Took a look a set of shrinker stretchers gadgets. I need that to create a couple layers on the bottom of the driver side wheelhouse.

Then I headed out to the shop to tinker. I spent the evening filling in my overzealous spot weld holes. And drinking Ryan's beer.

Super In Law really has my 90 amp MIG welder dialed in. Had a great evening .........................
