Today I found one more dent, there a shocker. OH, whats another dent.

 R 1/4 is in it second coat of primer and looks pretty good. I saw 2 small spots that will need some icing but they are real small. Most people would not see them.

I hit the left side today as well. Make sure you blow off all the dust and hit lightly with 220 grit to knock off any over spray that may have gotton on to other parts of the car.

 Got the roof in primer and the left side. Got to clean up the rear valances and block the right quarter one last time but ready for final sanding with 400 git.

 Hood is ready to come off and underside painted. Just need some way to haul it to the Mopad.

 Today was a bad day. Had another tooth fall apart. Right 1/4 looks ready for paint, same with roof and trunk. I wanted to get more done, put it is hurting pretty bad right now. Anyway they are in 400 grit, roof you can see a slight shine.

Eric,

Drive over to Ken's house and inspect it in person.

I saw it Saturday.

I have some parts questions for both Ken and Doc.
Ken- What is the part number for the 3m mask. Do you wear a different mask for sanding then for painting?
Doc- What kind of cutting wheel do you use. What type of disc and where do you get them.

My cutting wheel has always seemed a bit useless unless I treat it like a grinder. Thats about all it seems to do, push metal around. It takes a hell of lot time to actually cut something with it.

I will be starting a project soon and i would hope to have access to you guys when I do. Don't know if you remember Ken, but I talked ot you on the phone about 2 years ago and you helped me a great deal. You and Drop Top.

I used your advice for the glue and rivets on this fender patch, but had to have a pro do my quarters. I don't weld so good!

Anyway, I'm one of the happy board members who did almost all my own body work and painted the car in my driveaway, with no experience except the guys here. (Now don't anyone please say it looks like it) I know its not great, but it is a driver.

Heath

           This message is for moparhound I will go bye  and look at the car.  But with all of the pics on the internet that he has posted I haven't felt the need to.  Also when I go the a steak house I order a steak and  they bring it to me when it is cooked. I don't run back in the kitchen and check to see if the cook is doing a good job.  I have faith that when the "professional"  hired to do the work, is doing a good job or I don't hire them. I am a school teacher, real-estate agent, I buy houses and rehab them, I coach 2 sports, and my wife is 6 months pregnant. I spend my off time selling showing or working on houses and don't get home until 8:00pm most nights. This is why when I took the car to ken I explained I wasn't goint to be there to babysit this project. And as far as the time issue goes you of all people should understand my concern.

I hear you on the time issue. 

Given the difficulties, and what I heard, a visit sounds like a good idea.

This 'HOUND will move on, I have no dog in this fight. (pun intended)

Take care,

Ken, have you set up a booth to shoot Eric's car in?  Let me know if you need me to set up that booth I used.  I don't know what he will charge to rent it but I am sure it would be reasonable.

 This is a big bump! But I think it will help some of the people here! I will all so add it is one of the reason I gave up on cars for 8 years!

 Long story made short, Eric came up to pick up the AMX and did not take it to the body shop I had arranged for uses of the booth. He said the traffic was to bad!  shruggy I used or spent $500.00 or so in supplies and never saw a dime!

 He took it to another shop and had it sprayed and was told it came out pretty good.

 41 Husk and Eric are no longer friends, but Allen and I still are!  2thumbs

 What I did wrong? I was going to do the car in 1 month, pretty much a Wham Bam Thank You Mam. But I could not do it to a AMX so I took 4 months. What can I say?  shruggy

 I hope this bump will help some people here.

 I have found renew interest in saving my 68 Road Runner that I have owned for 40 years now. The AMX is one of the reason the Mopar Fire went out.

 As you can see she will need some TLC.

 Main thing is getting her going again and I am working on that!

 I will add I was mussed and dishearten that when the AMX pictures where taken, my beard had no white in it!  brickwall Getting Old Sucks!  lol
