Default 69 Coupe project.



Here is a pic of my 69 Coupe after test fitting the new quarter skin to the repop door shell. After a little tweaking of the quarter skin the body lines are dead on. I have replaced the l/s trunk floor, rear gas tank support, tail light panel, r/s door skin, & have test fitted the new quarter skin on the r/s & have the body lines on that one dead on also. Noiw it needs to warm up so I can weld them.
Mike.

I am working on winter projects since it is getting to cold to work outside & since I only have a 1 car garage all most all larger work must be done out in the driveway. 1st project was re-doing the console I purchased for the 69 Coupe a while ago. Gave it a fresh coat of black paint, cleaned up & painted both ash trays, replaced the broken console box, & installed the new console lid. It just needs a new shifter plate & it will be done.
2nd project I sanded all the paint from the outside of the front valance & found 10 nickel size or smaller dents that need to be fixed.
Mike.

Next up for my winter projects is to recondition the old 68 GT wheels I have had for over 20 years that were just sitting rusting. So I decided to clean thgem up & paint them. I had painted them blue when they were on my 68 GT Coupe back in the 80's when I had the car. I sold the car with different wheels on it. I decided I would put them on the 69 Coupe I am working on now. The one on the left is what they looked like before, & the one on the right is after sanding & painting. I painted it silver instead of the argent they were originally painted. I like the silver better, makes them look almost like chrome wheels.

Wheel looks good. I've done some Magnum 500's before and wheels are a little hard to sand (without a sandblaster) since it's such a small area to work with.

This past weekend I finished removing the pedal hanger so I can add the clutch & power brake pedals. I am also going to clean it up & paint it before it goes back in.

Recieved a welding cart for Christmas, now my welder,helmut & gloves have a home so I know where to find them when I need them. Also got a Mach-1 front spoiler for my Birthday which will go on as soon as I finish repairing the front valance.

Looking good, Mike. I have a 70 coupe project I'm working on.

The first pic of the pedal hanger is after sanding off all the surface rust I painted it with Mastercoat silver rust preventive, & the second pic is after painting it with rustoleum satin black. Now it is ready to get the clutch pedal & the power brake pedal.

Here is a pic of the lower metal dash after trying to sand blast it. I will try to use paint stripper on it in a few days when it warms up a bit. Right now it is only in the low 20's.

Mike65, the holes for your courtesy lights near your wiper knob and cigarette lighter - are they just holes drilled in the metal, or are they stamped in?

I have a complete parking brake warning light assembly, but I don't know if I need a complete lower dash assembly or not. Any chance you have some pictures up close?

Today I continued with my winter project of reconditioning the interior hard parts for my 69 Coupe. I cleaned up the under dash lights, & resprayed the lower steering column cover, dash end caps, & the windshield interior trm pieces.
Mike.

It was 58 degrees here at the Jersey shore when I got home from work so I just had to spend some time working on the Coupe. Ground down some welds, & laid the restored tail light housings in place & temp installed the pop open gas cap I purchased to see how it looks.

Before & after stripping off the old paint. Now I need a little warmer weather so I can repaint them & reinstall them back on the seats.
Mike.

Congrats on your 69 progress Mike. That aqua right door I sold you in Carlisle 10 years ago looks real good now that it's black! To help move this old horse along, let me know if there is anything (like metal patches) needed. I'm junkin' a 70 coupe this week...Pat
