Thank you all for looking and the kind words, 

Rob , I am really hoping and should be done by then ( Eastern meet) , or at least respectfully done enough to get it there.

I can relate to what you're doing on this car. Great job!

I did my son's car a few years ago. I painted it black, too.

Dan,

I hope you can bring at least one, if not both of them to the Eastern Meet in Carlisle in June.  We are shooting for over 50 First Gen Monte's in attendance for the 50 Anniversary of Monte Carlo

Dan,

I hope mine comes out looking as good as yours ( sons)  it looks great! The pics look very similar to what I am going through. I really hope to be there in Carlisle and meet a lot of the folks on here and their cars.

You should try and make Syracuse next year too, there was about 10 of us there this year and got some new members there. My brother is going to the Curtis lumber show this weekend (weather permitting) with his roadster. I won't be able to make it down for that.

Steve,

Syracuse is also on my list and hope I can make a lot of other shows next year. As for the Curtis Lumber show, did realize they were having one this weekend , especially with the Lake George show going on this weekend didn't think many others would be happening.

Hey all,

Just another update , now that main part of car is painted can start some work on other things. Started putting in headliner let it sit over night ( glad I didn't glue it yet ) needs to be tightened up more after setting overnight even after leaving in the sun before hand. Will take pics of that when I am done. Also painted the doors, trunk ,taillight extensions and door hinges here are a few pics. Thanks for looking.

 

Here are a few pics applying the black epoxy primer/sealer.

And got them clear coated today little dust but cant complain , a little wet sand and buff and should be good.

Got the taillight extensions on last night and finally got the headliner glued in , just need to clean up and tuck in edges and install wind lace. Will post pic of taillights later .. didn't want to paint the silver on so I used HVAC Foil tape ( the real duct tape) . I think it will be a little more reflective and the temp is 600-800 deg which shouldn't be an issue. Here are a couple pics of the headliner maybe a little wrinkle here or there but happy with how it came out for a first time doing it. A little sun and /or massaging with the heat gun cautiously may help also. As always thanks for looking

Looks great, I need to replace my headliner, I'm not sure if I have the guts to do it myself. Where did you buy yours??

I grabbed it from Summit ,its PUI Brand with the sail panels and some extra fabric for visors, It was like $107 shipped. I watched a couple videos on line , and with patients with a bunch of binder clips to help hold it as you work and stretch it . I put it in the best I could , let it sit overnight came back on Sunday played with it a little more and then on Tuesday glued it in ,I got the good weldwood landau top and trim glue , brushed that around the metal and on the headliner waited a few minutes and started sticking it . As I glued it I popped off about a quarter of the clips , worked in that area and then did another quarter and so on. I will say I think having it sit in there a couple days with clips made it easier when I glued it .I felt like it went into place and  when it came to gluing it was much easier to work and tweak then I thought.
