I closed it but I can't find a way to remove it. I will check with the Administrators and see if there is a way..

Re: pdx-sanity66

Would one of the administrators remove the poll from my thread. It is depressing to keep looking at the lack of response to this.
I've been working on some bodywork lately. I've done the final smoothing of the hood and it's ready for one more coat of epoxy. The pass. fender has been taken off (again). Final smoothing and ready for one more coat of epoxy. Now that I have the pass. door aligned, it will be taken off for final smoothing out and one more coat of epoxy. I hope to get this spraying done tomorrow. Once that is done I will be working on final work on the roof and side panels to prep for another coat of slick sand, prep, and paint. Then get the windshield and rear glass installed. I am ordering my wood bed kit from Mar-k today. Things are moving along pretty well now that the Monsoon season is over and the daytime temps have cooled down to the 80s. I'll post some pics later.

Re: pdx-sanity66

Looking great! Personally I think the C60 grill chromed or not would be a great choice and different.

Re: pdx-sanity66

Thanks TJ. I have decided to use the C60 grill. It's in great shape and I've always liked them. I'm still deciding what to do with the center opening. I can't decide whether to keep the bow tie or put the Chevrolet script in the center. I've also considered having the script chromed. The grill will be painted white.

Re: pdx-sanity66

The chrome Chevrolet letters in the center makes me think of the 61 grilles. I think that would be a great look

Re: pdx-sanity66

It'd be neat to figure a way to do the script and keep the bowtie as well to me.

The script though would be sweet.

I agree with you. Now I just need to make it happen.

I will definitely keep the bow tie and use it somewhere but probably not on the grill.

Thanks man. I am getting real close to paint. I just need to figure out when to stop and turn it over to a shop for minor blocking and paint. I'm having a real hard time letting go.

I got the final epoxy on the hood and pass. side door and front fender. I'm hoping to get some slick sand sprayed today. Pics to come.

Re: pdx-sanity66

If you aren't running a radio, maybe you could incorporate the bowtie into a radio delete plate?

That would be cool but I'm keeping the very nice delete plate. Maybe I can incorporate it in the the interior somewhere.

I think it's something that all if us that have followed along with a build for awhile like to see it finished, and for me it's a motivator to keep busy.

Well. I got the epoxy and a coat of slick sand sprayed and have the driver door off to finish the bottom and prep for epoxy along with the left fender.

Re: pdx-sanity66

Yesterday I also took my C60 grill apart to get ready for media blasting. I also removed the driver door and fender to finish up the door bottom and finish both like the passenger side.

Re: pdx-sanity66

Okay, back to what is going on now. I took the drivers door and fender off to finish the bottom of the door and give them both a coat of slick sand. I did a little more smoothing of both doors lower pillars and they are ready for another coat of epoxy. I also have a stripped bolt hole on the passenger lower hinge nuts It looks as though I can retap it like I did on the drivers side. Then reassemble the fenders and doors, hopefully for the last time until paint. As usual, I'm also working on a couple of other things. I have the roof pillars slick sanded and smoothed up. I have started prepping the roof for a coat of slick sand and finishing. The roof is in excellent shape. It was prepped and epoxy primed a while ago, so it is ready to seam seal and finish up. Then get the top painted at least so I can get the glass in.

Good to make a list like that, you'll be adding small stuff along the way but the it's good to do especially for planning and keeping up with purchasing.

I agree, I've kept most receipts except on consumables but I haven't looked at it in a while. The budget on this project went out the window a long time ago.

Just an update. I've got both of the door jams epoxied with just a couple of small spots that will need further attention. The driver door and fender have been removed and smoothed up. They didn't need much attention so I gave them one more coat of epoxy and sanded smooth. The pass. door and fender were sanded smooth after a coat of slick sand and only have a couple of very small spots that one more coat should easily take care of. So, both doors and both fenders are ready for slick sand. I am hoping to do both of the cowl extension and the cowl while I am at it. They only need some light sanding first. This is some pretty boring stuff right now but hopefully I'll have the doors and fenders and stuff back on the truck in about a week for the last time until I find a painter.

That's for sure, I've been hanging around for 10 yrs. or so and I've seen it more times than I can count. I love it.

well, I ordered my bed wood kit a couple of days ago from Mar-K and I'm really excited. I'm about to finish the body work on the front end as far as I'm going before turning it over to the professionals for prep ad paint, so The bed is the last to deal with. If I can get the bed I can get it set up to drill the holes and finish it. I got polished stainless strips and hardware and I'm going with white oak for the wood. I'll be doing some research on finishes very soon. I've got a bunch of small pieces and the center console structure are ready for paint. I'm using Eastwood's ceramic chassis black. I'v also got the tool box part ready for paint, also. I'm going for the hammered look so I'll be trying that first on the bottom of the box to see if I'm going to like it. I've also got the roof and side panels ready for a coat of sick sand along with the cowl vent and cowl extensions.

I love getting new parts but I'm not lacking for things to do. All of this primering and sanding is getting old but hopefully I'll be done with the cab by the time the bed stuff gets here. This is the time of year down here that the temp is just right for body work so I'm trying to get the cab done before the weather gets cooler. I just have a hard time figuring out how much should I do before leaving it to professionals to block out and paint. I'm hoping to get the roof masked off and sprayed with the final coat of slick sand, then prep and paint.

Thanks, my friend.
I'm getting ready to put the last coat of high build on the roof today. Everything is set up, I just have to give it one more wipe down with pre-prep and get down to spraying. The roof will be ready for paint prep after this and then get the windshield and rear glass installed FINALLY.
