Continued to chip away at the front end.   After 2 years of work everything now is in final assembly.  Now that the firewall is finished I can assemble the front clip and get the car ready for the paint shop in the spring.

  • This weekend was my last opportunity to get my final coat of body color on the firewall.

  • Body color is Cobalt Blue PPG Code 2116

  • The weather cooperated so by the time I was ready to paint the temperature in the garage was about 75 degrees.

  • I ran two quartz heaters over night.  The paint dry just fine.

  • PS... The floor has a blue drop cloth.  The blue isn't overspray.


  • Sunday cleaned up the garage and removed the masking material.
  • Reinstalled the drivers side wheel assembly.
  • Installed the new coil spring.
