Finally have a week or so that I'm free to work on my car, I hope to get the front fenders and deck lid primed, I started today on tightening up the front bumper similar to what I did on the rear. Here are some pics and I will add more as I get stuff done.

Here is the refit bumper, the last pieces will be welded in once I put the bumper on the bench

Thanks guys, appreciate the cudos.



Blocked the high build down with 180 and put two final light coats. I will block the entire car a final time with 400 right before spraying color.

I will however be jamming it (painting the jambs, under the deck lid and behind the doors) and attach the deck lid and fenders for the last time before final blocking and color.

Deck lid is blocked and primed ready for final blocking with 400. It was the easiest part, no through rust, only a couple tiny dings.

Next few days gonna try and get the car jammed.

My brother and a buddy of his came by and called it "Kermit" it is a serious shade of Green.

Got the jambs done and the bottom of the deck lid, trunk bolts are painted but will need to cure for a week before install them.

Looks awesome, after a few days I will mount the front fenders for the last time, then work up the energy to start the final blocking of the entire car.

there used to be a late '70s Dodge stepside Power Wagon around here with a pic of Kermit on the doors, sweet looking truck, and your car will be too.

Got the driver side jamb shot, and made two risers or benches to stand on to shoot the roof, put 4' flouresent lamp to add light at the rocker level.

Thanks guys, only had a day left before I'm back at work to 70 hour weeks, so I won't get much more done for a couple three months.

But I decided to start on my hood, since the big block with an rpm intake won't fit under the flat hood and I don't want the same Ole scoop that everyone else has on my car, a little fab work was in order.

The doner: wrecked 70 Challenger hood

Some slicing and dicing, measuring once and cutting thrice, some tape and green paint I have half of what I'm going for, working hard on keeping it from looking Pontiacish.

Once I get both sides mocked up I'll decide if I like it enough to do the bodywork to finish.

That would be a lot of welding.

I can't convince myself that it is going to look good. Any comments?
