Engine build is hung up waiting on the AFR 205's. Since I had to go with the upgraded springs it's taking them a little longer to ship. No big deal since there's still PLENTY to do on the car.
This weekend was all about epoxy!! Scuffed up the e-coated new parts...well...most of them. Also ran the DA with 80 grit over all the other metal. Mixed up the SPI epoxy. While it was inducing I cleaned all the soon to be coated panels with Eastwood prep cleaner and got to it!!
Sprayed 2-3 wet coats and ran the heater overnight to cure it. Sadly...I couldnt get the whole thing done due to space limitations. I still have the edges of the doors, headlight doors, headlight inserts, underside of the hood and some other piddly things. I'll look to doing that stuff next weekend provided I dont have an engine to contend with. I dont like having so many irons in the fire at one time but such is life.
Here's a photo of the epoxied stuff. I had already closed the doors to start getting the temp back up so the pic kinda sucks...
Couple other things...my painter has bailed on me so I'll have to sort that out eventually. I think I'm going to finish the body work and then go about 'building' the car (more or less). Should take me until the end of the summer and then figure out what to do.
I've also been going back and forth on what transmission to run. I was initially thinking a T56...that later changed to a TKO600 so I wouldnt have to modify the tunnel. Now I'm back to the T56 since I've done so much metal work I figure...whats a little more.
Anyway...decisions to be made later i suppose
