Also was able to get some OEM bow-style headliner pieces which just about completes my OEM parts list:
Pinchweld, bows, and braces:
Scored me a NOS RS Front Spoiler and a set of NOS RS signal lights:
Worked on the steering shaft. Just about complete – one of the tabs holding the cover on has a small crack when I went to bend it and I want to weld before calling it done – hopefully yet this winter:
The site was hacked and had issue the last couple of days. Apologize for issues. Seems to be under control – still doing some verification and clean-up!
Scored some NOS barrel nuts for my 73 RS long fender bars and also some barrel nuts for some of the trim pieces:
I updated some of the software the site runs on. So far everything seems ok. Feel free to report errors as I continue to verify everything. It does appear to be more responsive and faster.
A little behind on updating. The Labor Day progress wasn’t as good as expected between other life commitments and the weather. I did get the floor primed, but not undercoated. The project will most likely sit over the winter. Next summer will have to be the undercoat and working on the suspension 2018-2019. I have a large tree to take down and have a Cataract dealt with.
The rotisserie mounts will be painted after I take it off the rotisserie next summer:
Then some black Epoxy:
After 3 coats of Epoxy, some seam sealer:
There are a couple of spots I want to touch-up before applying the undercoat. Going to have to scuff the epoxy before applying the Raptor bedliner for the undercoat. Might not be much more to report until Spring arrives!
So I was able to get a NOS Dash. There was a little damage in shipping, but I think I can epoxy the piece and all will be good. Should still fit better than a repo one:
I will be posting my Labor Day progress within the next couple of days.
Worked on the firewall that last few days. 3 coats epoxy primer, seal sealer and 3 coats paint:
Masked to protect other areas I didn’t want over spray on:
1st coat epoxy:
2nd coat epoxy:
3rd coat epoxy
Waited until the next day and seal sealed where needed using both caulking gun and brushable seal sealer:
Got a little where I didn’t intend to – it was ok since I was painting over it anyways – removed what I could get:
3 coats paint the day after seam sealing:
Next steps are to prime and undercoat the floor, unhook the rotisserie and get the firewall brackets and get the remaining unpainted area on the firewall. Thinking I will need to keep it on the rotisserie for block-sanding the roof next summer before putting the rotisserie away.
