We get the picture..... so to speak.
Here you go Joe Enjoy all.....
Looking good, that is a ton of work. Be sure to wear good eye protection. A true labor of love..
Looks pretty solid
Here is the original color of the underside of my car once the undercoat was removed. I found a close match to repaint the underside once I'm ready
Great job, Joe. The body cart looks like it'll work great. Cleaning the underside is alot of work, but necessary on a body off restoration. Keep up the good work and the pics are always appreciated by all.
It looks like maybe you could use one of these.
Thanks. That tilter would be handy.
Just got the dash restored. I think it came out great. A lot of work taping everything off to spray the chrome
Looks great, what did you use to clean them up?
I resprayed the black dash with SEM. I resprayed the chrome with this cool chrome paint I got online as the stuff in the auto stores is junk. I compound the woodgrain and then put 10 coats of hand rubbed carnauba wax on it letting it dry for a day in between coats. Alot of work but the pictures don't do it justice
Making some progress
Jordan, looks amazing, sounds GREAT. Fantastic attention to detail. You will have to have it finished by next June for the Eastern Meet it Carlisle, Pa and the 50th anniversary of Monte Carlo celebration
I'm on it Rob. Very pleased with the way it's coming out
After a starter change and changing out the battery cables to the reproduction ones she starts like a dream even when hot!
Chassis is pretty much done and engine running great. So put that in storage and brought the body home. Now to finish up the body work then mock it up on the chassis then send it out for paint. Gotta get this project back up and running
Looks awesome so far, can't wait to see the finished product !!! Great job
Found the original Classic Copper under the window tracks. Gonna get it computer matched.
See if this link works, its a spread sheet of actual 4" x 6" painted color panels from DuPont I have from the Automotive Paint lab when I worked there. Shows the DuPont numbers and names and what cars they went on.
DuPont color codes 1971 Chevy Pass Cars
Didn't see Classic Copper Bruce
The names listed were DuPont names. Chevy and other s like Pontiac also changed the names of the same colors.
I may not have EVERY color however but I thought I did. I will see if I fine it and scan it for you.
Can't find one panel that looks like the color in your picture or what I remember it to be.
I thought I had them all......
I still appreciate the effort Bruce
