Project overload!

Post by gdrill on Mon Jan 26, 2015 6:43 pm

I have a few in the waiting. My Coronet is the main attraction, with the son's Barracuda coming up right shortly. Whennnnnnnn we get those done we have plenty left to choose from. I think it's as fun collecting them up as it is building them!

As found.



My son's '68.



Then..........



Bound for a 440!

Nice project, what is the coronet getting for a power plant?

Looks like you have a few nice projects sitting there.

Thanx Keith. Yes I have toooo many, but I should be good for a long time! There's a Demon tucked away somewhere as well, but I'm not sure if I'll ever get to it or put it up for sale. The Coronet is going to get a 383 / 727 with 3.23 sure grip. It was a slant six originally. It is well into the body work stage with the quarter patches at putty stage. Then prime and choose a color.

Yes you definitely look like you will be busy for awhile. The 62 doesn't look too bad.

Thank you. The '62 is pretty good overall. I have a 4dr donor. I will remove the floor as that is shot and passenger fender and patch the driver fender. The quarters are no too bad either. It will likely get a "Wedge" type clone 440 engine.

Guess I should give an update! The '66 is nearly ready for primer. I have been going steady and want it all one color again, even if it's only primed!

You really coming along with this project won't be long and you will be starting on the Barracuda. I just sold my 67 Coronet 500, really enjoyed driving that car, should have kept that car, I was the second owner.

What type and brand of primer do you use for bare metal.  I usually use epoxy primer on bare metal. It seems like there are less brands to chose from any more.

I am using epoxy on the bare metal. It is Proform. It is the brand that Offshore carries here in Lethbridge. I think Silver may have it too as I got some Proform seam sealer from them. I have no idea of quality, I'm no pro, but the guys there seam really good to talk to and deal with. So I am just going on their word.

That's the same brand I use as well. I get mine from advanced auto here in Calgary. I do the same, great guys and seems like a good price. I also use their seam sealer.

Thank you Sheldon. I am going to try to paint this myself. Hopefully it will be alright!

No venting, merely over spray containment. With the HVLP it doesn't seen to atomize as much so it basically drops straight down. Now when the paint happens, it may be a different story!

I will start with the inside of the trunk and then the frame rails and rear wheelwells. Will chassis coat and paint entire underside of car.

I also think the plastic static attracts the dust and over spray.

I picked this car up for parts. Paid $200 for it thinking the fenders and hood would be useful. When I got it home and looked it over, I couldn't bring myself to part it out! Damn addiction! Anyway one of my son's friends wants a project. Well this is it. It runs and really isn't that rusty. It's a slant six / 904 / 7 1/4. New master cylinder, carb kit, fuel pump and different tank. Pretty good start for a young gun. In the next few days we will be patching the floor. Just under the drivers seat, the rest is good.

I can't wait to drive this one. Funny thing is I am the second owner as well! The lady bought it new and drove it until 1978. Then it got parked as it is shown in the first picture!

Thank you. I had planned on sanding, because my doors and fenders were done 6 months ago! But I thought my epoxy said 1 week before having to sand?? Oh well, I seem to be a glutton for punishment!
