I can't believe you caféd a Goldwing, that's awesome. I turned my Sportster into a Café, as well but it doesn't have nearly the custom work you do. Thanks for the thread, I love watching (both) builds.

'66 Coupe - Pro-touring in the making

289 4bbl
T-5Z
9" TrueTrac 3.70 gears
TCP suspension front and rear
18x8 Wheels and Baer 6P all four corners

And no more money left in my wallet...

Yea it was a fun project for me and my dad.

Sorry to see it sold, but it went to a really good home.

But it allowed me to gather the fund to do the Mustang. I've wanted to build one since I was 10 years old, so this is a dream come true for me.

Got the interior half of the door reprimed after bodywork. This half of the door wont be touched again till im ready to shoot the door jambs with the body color.







Tomorrow's goal is getting the backside of the Drivers fender sanded in 80grit and then Acid etch'd. After that, it's onto stripping the outside with 36grit on the 7inch DA and then 80grit on the 6" DA.

yea, try to do a little bit every day. Not gonna be able to work on it till thursday after today. Going camping up at Clearlake.

The real progress will happen the week of the 31st to the 7th. Girlfriend is going on a trip with her family, so I'll be working on the car every day.

Got Torque Boxes from Mustangs Plus ordered, so those are gonna have to go in. Gonna do some other small body mods and then get back into stripping the rest of the car. Should have the rest of the rolling chassis in Etch primer by the 7th.

did you get the one piece or two piece torque box ? I thought I'd save some time and money getting the one piece but ended up taking them apart to make them fit

Awesome work. I was looking at the cleanliness of your shop and noted that you have a red/black curtain around your shop. Is it on tracks to pull around?

I also see in the pics what appears to be a dust evac system hovering above your work with a handle on it. Do you mind me asking where it was purchased?

Thanks and awaiting new pics!!

I got the 1 piece.

A little background on me. I do R&D research into designing repair procedures for a Small Luxury Car Manufacturer. So you total your car, the bodyshop that fixes the damage uses my repair process to fix it.

With that in mind, and some help from out Sika and Fusor reps, Im going to takle installing these as 1 piece like I would if it were going onto one of our cars that I see at work. I'll document everything here, but hint, next generation Structural/Crash resistant adhesives and Structural fasteners are going to be used to supplement the welding that will need to be done.

hey John, Wish it was MY shop, but thats my work stall in our R&D shop at work. The Curtains were custom made, not sure by who, and that Fume extractor is installed by the Nederman corporation. They do Fume extraction and air/central vac for bodyshops.
