Very nice! My first was a '69 Coupe and I have always wanted to find a '69 Mach 1! Thank you for feeding into my addiction, I look forward to watching your progress on this beauty too!

Thank you.

We finally got back to this today. We stripped the trunk awhile back, epoxy primed, and seam sealed in attempt for a factory look. Today we sprayed more epoxy and sprayed some blue.

love that color! Since you seem to be loving the restoration process, and I don't have time to get to mine, how about I just drop it by one day and I'll pick it up when you're done with it??

Seriously, nice work.

You guys do very professional work. Is that what you do for work? (Sorry, I didn't read the entire thread). My brother rebuilds all types of classic & muscle cars and does it right like you do, on his spare time. It boggles my mind that work done so clean is done as a hobby and not a career. Just curious if its either of your careers?

No, we are just hobbyists. Thanks for the kind words!

And thanks, Racer Dave. You know I'm a sucker for a 67 fastback, drop her off anytime

Any updates?

Thx for sharing so much. Will you all be going to the Fall Super Swap? I'm thinking about heading over for it.

No updates right now. We just moved and will be bringing the car over soon. We now have a heated garage so we'll be at it all winter!

Awesome on the heated garage. Helping my brother move now to a new house that has a heated shop out back. Not needed as much here in Alabama as in Ohio I am sure.

Why did you strip the existing epoxy?

I'm not sure where you are referring to. The only areas we stripped were where there was NO epoxy sprayed.

We got the car home and lined up the sheet metal as well as we could. The previous owner had the car blasted and epoxied.

And how she sits today..




I though you bought it Epoxied, then stripped it off and re-Epoxied?

Either way that SPI black Epoxy looks great!!

When we bought it, it was epoxied (that's the white you see) and then he used featherfiller (which is black). We blocked the featherfill with 80 grit. Then, we sprayed black SPI epoxy over it. From here we will block the car with 180 to find more low spots and then proceed with some filler work. He did a very good job on the body work but there are some areas that need addressed, but nothing major. Hope that makes sense, sorry for the confusion.

Normally in the winter time we have very few days, if any, to work on the car at the shop. Well, after 4 years of this hobby and battling our Ohio winters we finally moved into a house with a heated garage. Eleanor will be joining her soon. So excited to be able to work on these beauties all winter. Woot wooooot.

Awesome garage. Now I'm not only jealous of the cars you have and the work you guys do, you now have the Garage Mahal to be jealous of too.

NoReigns, I love all your projects and your 71 Challenger. I hope to someday have a garage as big as your new one. I even like your car hauling trailer. My mechanic has one similar and the winch comes in very handy. Love this project since mine is on hold for a bit. Hope to get back to it soon though.

Looks like there's room for at least one racecar, a 67 fastback and a couple quarter midgets... We'll put your name on the cars for trade in heated shop space. Glad you'll be able to get to work on the cars this winter.
