We also did bedliner on the bottom but chose SEM, mostly because I have a distributor that's close to home. We did the lizard skin on the inside, get yourself an undercoat gun or use the bedliner gun to spray it on. I bought an undercoat gun. After we complete the paint we're going to be going heavy with body wax to give it an extra line of protection from rust.
Ok, so I have some good news and some bad news. Bad news is, we have had a lot going on and haven't had much time to work on the car - sooo, no new pictures. The good news is... yesterday my father in law took me to an auction that had a 68 fastback J code, along with some other old Ford's. Being the competitive person I am... well... I won the auction and am now welcoming a new pony into the stable- the hub was out of town this weekend so he definitely came home to a surprise. That will teach him to leave me at home alone for a few days! It has power disc brakes, tilt steering, power steering, A/C, fold down seat, auto trans. Here are some pictures:
Ha ha 69FB I will talk to your wife and yes andrewmp6 I have a sister but she's in to corvettes!
Well, the purpose of me going to the auction was to steal the car. But that was the intent of everyone else too. I got it at 6,000 and was not going a penny over. I think all in all it was a "good" deal, but certainly not a "steal." However, I had a magnet to check over all the panels - everything felt really good. All of the panels are original, stamped by the ford plant, including taillight, valance, fenders etc. That is cool to me. Plus the options that came on the car were pretty rare, including the tinted glass! I was told that the back windshield alone is worth $2,000. We are working to decode the engine block to see if its the original. We know the intake is correct, won't know about transmission until we get under the car. We aren't sure what we're gonna do with it yet. It may sit for a few years, but you all will be pleased to know that it will go back to original if we do restore it. We are 99% sure it was Lime Gold with the matching Ivy Gold two toned interior. Will order Marti Report eventually.
Hey guys thanks for all the compliments. As tempting as it is to put up progress pics, I'm holding out till we have something worth the post! I promise to have some new pics up Saturday or Sunday. We have to start priming the underneath before it gets too cold here so we'll be workin real hard this weekend!
Got a lot done today. We worked for almost 9 hours! The weather is getting colder here in Ohio and we wanted to get the underneath epoxy primed before it got under 60 degrees. Aaron was on the grinder almost all day, as well as sandblasting the surface rust off of what wasn't replaced. I want the bottom to look as good as the top so we are busting our hump. We got the priming done today, tomorrow we will begin to smooth the seams, and then hopefully Monday we will be able to prime over it again. After the second prime, we will be using U-pol Raptor or some kind of heavy duty bedliner. We will also get some seam sealer on the inside tomorrow. Unfortunately these pics were taken from my phone because I forgot my camera. Excuse the poor quality!
