Recommended Posts

Now that the car was up on it's side I got busy sanding and repairing the left quarter. Then I finished up with priming,under coating then painting it satin black. It felt good to get something completed.

Well it's back on the ground. Time to move on to the next thing. The trunk and tail light panel. But before I can remove the tail panel I had to call in the pro, my brother.:cool: At some point the car got bumped in the right quarter. So before I can remove the tail panel It needed a little hammer and dolly work to put the quarter put back where it belonged. Since he was over the house I had him take care of my screw up. When wielding in the patch on the left quarter I got it to hot and warped the panel.:s It only took Him a few minuets with a torch and a slap file fix my screw up. Before he left he gave me a tip about removing the tail panel. He recommended not drilling out the spot welds on trunk corner drip rails so not to loose their integrity. But to grind the panel off from the backside.

Some more pics of my tail light panel install to get my build thread caught up.

 

With mocking up the tail light panel I found out that the end cap from the sprint fit like crap. Called Don from OMS and he sent me out one that fit much better. Thanks again Don.

That's high quality work. Car looks great! Are you taking on final paint yourself? I noticed the truck weatherstrip wasn't in since its not time yet but do you find it pushes up the trunk lid out of alignment with the end caps? i experienced that with my 68 build but before i made any adjustments i pushed the car into the hot sun with the lid open. seemed to help but then there aren't any decals on my 68 that go across the trunk and end cap. i will however have to contend with this dilemma with the 71 after its painted. I think i will put that decal on the day before i unveil the car.
