I used 3M-8329 controlled flow 2 part seam sealer for the drip rails. The stuff is really nice. I first cleaned the drip rails, then epoxy sealed the with PPG DP90LF. The roof, rear deck panel, edges of the trunk jam and the rockers have 3 coats of PPG K36 urethane high build primer on them and they have been guide coated. They will be block sanded by hand with 320 and possibly re-coated if need be.

I still look at every update on this thread...very nice job you're doing! Why no subframe connectors if you plan on racing it some? Or is this a numbers matching drivetrain car still?

I do want sub frame connectors but i don't want anything welded in. I did see U.S car tool had bolt in ones. if they don't bolt in i won't have them. I do plan on making some passes at the track though. The car isn't going to be really crazy.

Thanks Ron. I haven't really been into the hobby much and have been wondering lately why I am doing this car. The state of the hobby is not what it used to be and I just have not seen any value in doing this stuff anymore, add the fact that there is no one my age doing the stuff I do around here anymore. I will finish my car but Have no idea what I will do with it when I am finished.

I hear you on that, I get burnt out from time to time myself. I think when you have the finished product in front of you you'll get a new jolt!!

Mike I really hear what your saying, I read your other post too. Walk away for a short time and go to some events and look at the junk that's out there winning trophies. Go the the A/C auction in two weeks and see what the word of flippers are selling and at what $$$$$. You'll get a good laugh and hopefully come home and continue with this Standout Car!!!!
Aftermarket parts have to be bought right before using because they are mostly junk! Don't let that part of the hobby kill it for you. Wait until you take this perfect Black Runner out of the garage and it gets dust on it in 13 seconds before you quit the hobby!!! J/K

thanks Ron. I just can't stomach this hobby any longer. theres no one in my area who does what i do. i'm all alone. car shows suck! and man the parts are garbage. i am sick and tired of spending my hard earned money on this crap. everyone and anyone who knows anything about building these cars knows it does not happen over night. the morons who sell these parts tell you, oh sorry its garbage but you've had it over a year! it was crap over a year ago. its brand new and doesn't work! what the hell is the difference. you took my money. there ought to be a freakin law! i cant stand it anymore. now that i want to sell it ill have every flipper and moron over trying to talk me down. as far as i am concerned it can sit in the garage and go to hell there before i deal with a flipper.sorry but am i the only guy who sees this????? im over it all. 25k and ill continue give you every last piece i have for a b body! yeah its apart but buy one and do the work that has been done to this car and let me know how much was spent. its all there restored except the windshield. sorry for the rant but wake up parts guys and manufacturers.you keep loosing guys and you might as well shut up shop. i don't see anyone cashing in their retirement to buy cars anymore much less restore them

I had a hard time with car shows last year myself. I find the hobby has a bunch of do nothings in it now that buy a so so car and drive into a show expecting to go home with a trophy. I mean what does it say about your car if you win a trophy without opening the hood or trunk??? It wasn't judged you were given a participation award.

I spend time before a show getting the car polished just right and time after I come home getting the car polished just right but since it's not a loud color it just goes unnoticed. The sense of pride/workmanship is not a priority like it was 20 years ago.

With a car like yours that countless hours are spent on you will need to take it to Large shows with like minded people in attendance. Or do what I do on many weekends just cruise it around with no place to go.

The repro. industry was always hit and miss, your car can't use those pieces. You have gone to the next level where you have to send your original pieces out to specialized people to redo them.

Take a cooling off period.
Ron
