wow!

hey great link! thank you!,,,,,,,,,,,here's a short story(yeah right),i painted a cherry `granny car' for a local school teacher=66 malibu or was it a chevelle? a 4 door,the husband had smeared an inch of clear silicone on the top of the windsheild moulding/paint,,,witch i removed,did the paint while they were gone on a holiday,then got in a bind for time trying to get the crap off and just grabbed what i thought were `all the same' mouldings out of the pile figuring i would clean up the goop later,,,the gist of the story is=4 door mouldings are different,the verticle bars are shorter and the upper horizontals have a dif. curve to the corners,,just in case you're eyeing a 4 door for parts,,,,,,,,,,at one time i had several sets of W/S moulds,back in the real early 80's you could buy GTO's for nearly nothing,had 5 `66 and `7's at one point,well,best stop right there,,,,,,,,,,,,,as for pics,here's where i'm at=i'm not computer literate,yes i play with eviel bay but ya see when we got computerised i spent all my time fishing that's my esape from bondo fumes,i live ten minutes from the Rogue River in southern oregon and in fact had worked up to being a licensed and active fishing guide for salmon and steelhead,why am i rambling all this?,well in the fishing world it's goes like this,bring the fish to hand take a pic go strait home post on the net LOOK AT ME!,,,,,they call it `fish porn' ,,,,,,,,that's not WHY i fish,i fish to get away from stress not to feel obligated to all this new technology and the `net,so yeah when i'm ready i'll open up the crap at photobucket and get `real good' at it,prolly this winter,i like being illiterate HAHAHAHA!,or in denial i guess ,,well, have to go prep an `07 F=350 for color and blocksand a `72 ghia,,

thank you!

i certainly need to keep all 3 carbs wide open and get my old tiger back under me,,,hopefully i won't come on to strong for the site and `P' anybody off along the way,this weekend would be a big fishing weekend,i'd normally be rowing my brains out for chinook broiling in the sun as people visiting relatives from cal come up to visit but these days but i've backed off as the numbers of salmon coming in from salt are few and far between,,,so let's jump on those old horses while we can and get em up!(before the fish come in) ,,,,,,,,,already found a great parts link so i'd say i love the place!

Hey Hammer welcome to the site. Hey don't feel bad with your restoration. I've been working on my 70 GTO for 2 years and barely have the body work complete. I'm just now starting the 120 grit phase of the board sanding, so I have still alot to do. Hey as long as we work on them some time we'll get them done and be able to enjoy finally driving them like they were meant to be driven.

catch a fish on me.

let `em breath!

let the primer dry well,,,the problem is the prices go up so fast on body materials it's unreal,,,,,,,,my `67 when i did it in 80 it cost 175.00 to totally strip the car and build it back up and put lacquer back on it,,,it's blistered and needs redone that's for sure (after 27 years),i'm figuring 1500 in materials now and just hope i can get the base clear to match exactly the shade it has to be,meaning not to dark at a distance and have the proper look under all light conditions,,it's torquoise,,THAT torquoise that i've seen 28 `67 cars painted with on eBay(rare color=?) and no two seem to be the same shade,,yeah i'm gonna be anal about it ,,,stay on it!sand till your fingers bleed, go fish and drink lots of healing fluids then come back on it
