Wow. I'm finally back to working on this 67 GTO, at least more than I have been.
Since the last time I posted on here (and thank you for keeping this thread a sticky!)....
1. I've gotten married last spring.
2. Went on our first curise with Carnival on our honeymoon...loved it!
3. Bought my wife her favorite car. A 68 Camaro Convertible. So I've actually been working in it mostly trying to get it ready for paint this spring. It too is a project (since I can't afford to buy anything finished, haha). It's been a good project so far. Most of the sheetmetal work was done from the previous owner, but I did decide to replace the drivers 1/4 and wheel wheel. I've been stripping it, blasting, and primering and doing rough body work to it for now. Oh and I do have a great wife! She has been helping me with just about every step of the way. She loves to get her hands dirty and dig into it!
Now for the GTO...
1. I've gotten all the floor pans that needed replaced finished.
2. I had my local blaster come out to blast the body shell with his mobile unit. (before this winter set in so I could work on the rest of the sheetmetal over the winter.)
3. Right after that I DA'ed it down and epoxy primered everywhere.
4. Currently I'm still working on some trunk floor sheet metal and the rear trunk corner braces.
5. I also have to finish up some cowl area sheetmetal and a spot on the driver's front rocker panel.
6. I have to replace/repair the tail-light panel yet.
7. I removed the bushings and balljoints from all the a-arms. Going to take them and the frame to the blaster once the snow stops and the roads dry-up a little.
8. Last week I tore the motor down and sent it to the machine shop. Boy do I hope it's in good shape and not junk for being the original and "rarer" HO motor.
So, aside from being side-tracked a little with my new wife and her car, I have been working a little on my 67 GTO project. I'm gonna try to post up some pics here this weekend, but to be perfectly honest, we are in dire need of a new computer. So it doesn't want to coorperate (at least quickly) with much of anything.
Later guys! And thanks!
