Putting the R's all in there spots. .030 sure looks big once you get them away from each other.

Pic 1 Here is the air breather box for "Runt" this will have a two into one hose line hooking up the valve covers so the motor can breath. Pic 2 I had to get a 0/40 squarls tail brush today so I could do the out line of the black. This helps bring out the panels more but Curtis from RPM and I both agree it made it look a little off with the black. Pic 3 The only spot on the body its self that has a black paint other then the window trim, or in the engine bay area. Helps brake up the red and bronz so the spoiler can be seen from above.

Getting closer to having the clear coat put on. 1 to 2 more days of little fine detail work on the body and he will be heading in to get the greatest part of the painting done.

1st pic This part here goes in between the frame rails and hold the cross member and also exhaust in place. You can see the exhaust clamps bolted in and there is 2 per a side plus 2 bolts each. There will be two more per a side put on the rear crossmember.

2nd pic Showing the top of the crossmember as it has 4 3/4 bolts with washers in place. Plus there is 2 more at the end of the long drive shaft cover that bolts to the rear crossmember.

1st pic This is how bright it gets with a flash, Also now it is done for the first of the wet sanding and tomorrow I will put the black and rubber parts on the body to be clear coated 2 more times.


2nd pic Here is a pic with out a flash and this was what I was hoping for, The Rap in side the fenders was right with the shading of the body that will be seen more normal then with the flash of a camera.

put the black rubber around the rear and front windows. Also put down tape on the door to give it a diffrent textur to make it dull black. This all little detail will set the body off even more when it all comes together.

Pic 1 Rear seat being fitted in and having the center consel put in also.
Pic 2 With the rear seat in, I put the roll bars in to hook up the fire extinguisher and connect that to the rollbars.
Pic 3 The hood has been wet sanded and now i'm adding the gard to the front of the hood, yes this is normal tape as it gives off the same textur as what the gard does and this will have the chevy bow tie in it when i'm done.
