Interior bits all sealed, and the pieces that will be visiblehave been painted and cleared. Getting so close I can taste it.

Spending some much needed time in the garage enjoying the awesome weather. making some progress. Completely disassembled the grille. Drilled out all the rivets and then riveted it back together.

Sorry for the crappy quality on these pics. I was in the garage and taking pics one handed with a potato.

The frame all cleaned, sanded, and re-painted

Slats laid on there loosely to make sure everything was still peachy

Brushed, finished, riveted, and feeling good about it. Of course it's not perfect, but this is the grille that came with the car and it had pitting and some scratches/blemishes that were just too deep to get out without completely killing the finish.

Still sexier than the chrome finish though IMO

And now that it's done, it's gonna have to be wall art until I get the car back and start putting it all back together.

Time to start on the next piece... This one could get interesting. Not sure if I'm leaving it bare metal or not yet. Time shall tell.

Rust sucks. It eats boot lids.

And when it's bad enough, you have to just completely replace the lid.

Rust eats doors, too.

But when it's all done and fixed, you get to do this.

Looking good.

When it is done I will trade you straight up for mine.

I don't know if I'll ever get rid of it after this.

I've been on vacay for a few days and now that I'm back, I can post some updates.

Fixed those nasty rusty doors and whatnot.

Final section of Lizard Skin sprayed on. This little piece is probably one of the most important ones. It should reduce heat significantly and a lot of the engine noise. Of course that beautiful carb noise will still make it through, but a lot less of the annoying frequencies.

Still wet and not color matched yet.

Oh... and speaking of color... here's the best part!

Thanks, Kyle (or is it "Funky Lex" haha). I'm really looking forward to seeing the whole car painted up. Should be coming relatively soon.

I don't know much about painting, but why not do the whole body and the door frames at the same time?
