Winters almost over, my plan for spring/summer is to get the shop finished on the inside. I have 2 walls out of 4 complete, insulated and drywall. I had some nice commercial grade insulation leftover from a couple of projects we did that completed about half of the ceiling. Now I need to get the rest of the insulation, then put up int. walls and a ceiling. My electrician was supposed to start in a few weeks running power to the building but he just found out he has prostrate cancer and is going to be off work after the middle of march for awhile. I would like to use a long tube radiant gas heater lengthwise with the building. Theyre not that expensive and I think its the best for the situation. I do have a slightly used oil furnace sitting in my upstairs doing nothing (I upgraded to propane a couple of years ago and this one was unhooked and left sitting) that I have contemplated using that instead.

I am looking forward to winter being over. This last week it has been unusually cold in Vegas, we even got a few dustings of snow. I have no reason to complain because it really not that big of deal compared to other parts of the country. Having a shop that is insulated and heated is a great thing to have during the winter months.

I'm surprised to see the t-top interior parts rusted up like that.  Doesn't seem like something that happens often, unless maybe its been sitting off the car?  Or...I guess if rodents get in there they can muck things up pretty good.  Is that the one you purchased?  Anyway, I'm glad to see its cleaning up OK.
Good luck with the new shop.  I'd like to see it in person some time.  I'm sorta handy with a hammer and drill.  If you want to make a push to get it buttoned up, I'd be happy to donate a couple hours.   The one and only advantage to my 1 car garage is that I can heat it with a couple 500 Watt work lights and a little Craftsman space heater.  You jealous? LOL.

Tom, when I see the space you have worked out of I am truly impressed beyond belief. My new shop was built primarily for my day business (contracting and woodworking) with a bay added on for the car. When I was a kid there was a local builder who did complete restorations, full paint, built motors, interior work, the whole nine yards. His finished cars were amazing. His shop was a one car garage under his bi level house. He later added a bay to make it 2 wide but didn't take out the wall so essentially it was 2 single car garages. One side even had a dirt floor that became so compact and oil covered it was about as hard as concrete.

Console was pretty bad, almost completely cracked in half. After reading that the aftermarkets weren't all that great I decided to give this a shot. Reinforced everything with fiberglass on the inside and used padded dash filler to repair the face. After a couple of coats sanding in between, I hit the entire thing with sem texture coating, then a few coats of sem warm grey (1583), then sem low lustre clear coat.

As part of my A.D.D. I have yet to finish the t top repairs. I was all but finished and had to put it aside to do some other work, then I started this. I ordered new rubber for them and hope to get back on that task this weekend. Then maybe start the rest of the plastic int. parts.

Got one top finished complete with new rubber from Steele. It does need a new handle though. I will check my stash before I order one. This one will go into 'cold storage' with the rest of my newly painted interior parts until the time they are needed. Now I need to go back and redo the first one. It needs the inside parts restored and new rubber.
Weather is starting to warm around here and it looks like I will be able to get back to the car itself soon and get some primer sprayed then start what minimal body work is needed. I really would like to have it painted a real colour by about june. We'll see!

Thanks. Now I would like to find a way to replicate the chrome banding on the trim parts. I use a silver leafing pen that does a really nice job, it just doesn't have the shine of the original chrome though.

Weather was summer like today, so I got primer shot on the bare shell! Also did the trunk lid, and dr. door. I have been waiting for quite awhile to get to this and with the weather starting to warm and moisture coming back I was afraid the bare car would start to flash rust. Pics to come.

I must say that it is amazing you were able to salvage the center console, and it turned out great. I remember a member Hitmans page doing amazing work like this on everything. Keepat was his name on there. he restored, I believe a 73? Anyways, it was always cool to watch everything he did because, like you, he pretty much fixed everything himself and like you, did amazing work.

Keep it up because it is very motivating and educational, and I know others like me appreciate!!

Amazing

Primer turned out pretty nice. I sanded with a 16" block and then a 6" block. Body is REALLY straight. Its nice to have such decent metal to work with for a change. Door was typically banged up pretty good, and I started doing some mud work. Got a couple of coats, letting the third sit until tomorrow. Only work on the dr side was the roof seam, pass side quarter had been replaced at some point so I have a bit more work to do along that seem. I had thought about replacing it but they actually did a pretty good job so it stays! Judging by the lack of rust on this car I surmise it was hit in the right side quarter.

Must feel good to get some primer laid down.  Looks great. 
I also can't believe you saved that console.   I don't think I would've even tried. It looks perfect from here!.  Nice job.

Thanks All!  I actually pulled the console out last winter and got ready to repair, saw how bad it was and decided to replace. I heard the new ones weren't right so I went back and decided to give it a try. Im actually pretty pleased with how it turned out.
Things are moving SLOW, but I don't really have that much time into it so far. Now that things are warming up I hope to put the hammer down! I want to top the rage filler off with some high build primer, maybe today or tomorrow after work. Once I get the body to where I like it, im gonna pull the front fenders and work on them and the pass side door at the same time.
   The first thing I did to the 77 was strip every part off the car, and I had stuff everywhere. Im approaching this one a bit different. I am leaving stuff as is until I need to work on it.

Picked up primer today, and some misc material to paint with. Supposed to be warmer tomorrow, gonna try and prime then. Talked to the store about mixing paint for me, they aren't 100% sure they can get it exact to what I want. I may end up with the premixed stuff that I used for the touch up.

Great work and great pictures. Love seeing them. I too was surprised how much room a car takes up when it's all apart. Looks like you have an excellent shop area.

I would think hard about the flat black Kerry, I think it looks great on your bike but not on a car.

DEF not on the car!!  My son dropped my bike a number of years ago and it was tore up pretty good. I rebuilt things myself. This was my first experience with automotive paint. I thought it would be easier to go flat black than a gloss and have to worry about buffing and all that stuff. I didn't know it was the same amount of work (less the buffing). End product turned out perfect and it grew on me. Paint was called something like hot rod black with a matte clear coat. Its supposed to be harder to clean but I just wash it off with soap and water every spring and it looks fine.

I love the look! Great looking bike! I think it was a great choice going with the matte clear coat and black.
