Worked on the drivers side rear quarter….the body line was wobbly and not straight, plus I did rust repair at the bottom. So I had to redo the surface shaping….got it straight…..

Also got the passenger rear quarter reworked, and started on the quarter patch…the door really needs to come off and get finished and hinge rebuilt first….

Been working on compressor, it was not plumbed well and started spitting water…I added more piping and 4 drops with drains…also building lights for the paint booth we will build in the fall…testing them out for coverage, I have 18 lights total.

I wetsanded down the rear primer, it looks pretty good and needs minimal respray.

tonight, in just a few hours, I removed front bumper, grill, valance, front fenders and doors. The doors and hinges are next on the rebuild list, followed by refit of fenders. With hood.

I have a curious problem, one side of the car is 1/2 inch shorter than the other, so I need to cheat the spaces and gaps to work that out….

Did primer today on doors, hinges and misc parts…beat the rain and the lawn guy that showers my house with debris ever Saturday. Will wet sand and evaluate, and rebuild the door hinges….
