Has been a while since I last worked on the Grabber Lime car, but it is time to get back at it and get it finished so I can start on the next restoration.    Axle was completed over the summer, so just got the new wheels/tires and all new brake components for the front brakes.   Needed to put factory type undercoating in the rear wheel wells, so the last restoration I finished I found that if I used 3M brushable sealer and dabbed it on with the end of a plumbing brush, then used rubberized undercoating over it, the texture came out closer to factory than any other way I tried.   Here are pictures of the seam sealer in gray, then the undercoating.   Not exactly like the factory, but appearance is close.   Should have the front brake parts on in the next week, so should be able to put the car on the ground for the first time in 5 years!!!

Very nice... I sure don't have the patience for a restoration!

Hopefully the US border will be fully open soon, i.e. NO PCR test before returning to Canada as I'm FULLY VACINATED so I can "kill two birds with one stone" so to speak and get to NPD and a visit your shop so I can see that beauty for myself. It is absolutely MY dream car, but way out of my reach.......... unless I win the lottery!!
