12/21: Oh Christmas comes but once a year

It's a damn Christmas miracle; car is out of media and back in the shop.

I'll snap photos tonight after work.

I am excited. Now the fun can begin.

12/22: Update

Stopped by the shop and took a few photos.

I'm pretty happy with how it came back from the media shop. The car came back with literally zero media-burn and zero damage as the photos will show you.

The trunk came back with only two areas that warrant patch work. A full trunk replacement is not required. I am a bit disappointed with the level of detail that went in to the trunk media blast but I got a good deal so I can't be too upset. The lack of rot back there and the fact I don't need a trunk replacement is a giant plus and money saver.

I'm content with the interior. Again, I'm a little disappointed with the lack of detail but the seal sealer that remains is not silicon. It's actually urethane and can be painted over so the fact it was not removed during the blast is not a big deal.

The firewall / cowl area came out as acceptable. Again, some seam sealer remains which is somewhat unfortunate. The drivers side cowl area had been damaged in an accident back in the 70s. I still have to decide if I want that portion replaced or just hammered out. If I have it hammmered out I'll have a body guy lay some fiberglass on it to make it as smooth as possible.

12/26: Update

On the list for this and next week:

1.) Weld in the heater core/blower motor fill panel from Detroit Speed
2.) Patch all holes, drill holes, all rot in trunk
3.) Cut the new transmission tunnel for an Ls7 / T56 combo using the Holley T56 Hump panel and Detroit Speed LS Motor mounts
4.) Prime and paint the two small sections of floorpan above the front sub frame rails (since the paint guy wonít be able to get to them)
5.) Mount the new Detroit Speed front sub frame (use the 4 pro-touring F-Body chassis mounts in their highest setting)
6.) Install Detroit Speed sub-frame connectors
7.) Re-install rear suspension
8.) Spray all sandblasted areas with SPI Epoxy primer (wash and wipe off all media blasted surfaces with Eastwood's 'After Blast'
9.) Wire-wheel firewall to remove the last bit of paint/under-coating to prep for primer
10.) Pound-out and smooth the damaged driverís side cowl area
11.) Patch/smooth emergency brake-cable hole in floorpan
12.) Remove all exhaust hangers, brake line clips/clamps and plug and weld smooth

Sorry about that. I'm still using a stupid photo bucket account.

What's another free and good photo hosting option?

1/10: Update

Installed the Detroit Speed firewall A/C delete panel and Holley T56 Hump panel. Next up is patching the trunk.

Paint shop is stopping by tomorrow for an estimate to put everything in PPG.

I'll try and find another image hosting site since photo bucket is a joke now.

1/15: Update

Stopped by the shop today. Finishing up a bit of welding then laying seam-sealer down (today and tomorrow). Dropping it off to the paint shop for PPG later this week.

I priced out 3 gallons of Lizard Skin Thermal and 3 gallons of Lizard Skin Sound to spray on top of the primer in the interior pans. Damn that stuff is pricey. Roughly $400 for supplied alone. I might hold off having them shoot it this go-round. Lizard Skin was somewhat of an afterthought; we'll see.

I can't comment on the effectiveness of the product you're referring to, but I have used products like dynamat in the past and I would highly recommend some sort of insulation to dampen NVH. I used to not care about that stuff when I was younger, but as I get older, it's a lot more important to me. If you want to be able to enjoy the car for long drives, do something rather than nothing.

I’ve got build threads up on lateral-g and pro-touring (.com).

Lots of guys say to go the dynamat or boost-mat route.

It’s pricey regardless of how you go about it really.

I can't remember, did you figure out wiring for it yet?

Wiring is pretty far down the road at this point. I’m still focused on just getting it home and then beginning the brake system. Brakes are next in my list.

As far as who is wiring it...I think I’m going to attempt to handle that all myself. Lots of research to do.

As far as paint goes, that’s the last thing in my to do list so provably 5-7 years away if my math is right. I still plan on getting the rear fenders stretched out 2 inches with custom aero work.

In terms of color...something a shade darker than what it was with the same blue bird decales

I haven’t seen the car with all four wheels on in over five months. You can imagine my excitement and smile when I walked in to the shop and saw this:



I took a bunch of photos. Every square inch of the undercarriage, firewall, trunk and interior was blasted, primed and painted. The firewall work, sub frame, rear suspension all hung. I couldn’t be happier.
