How should I proceed?
Hey guys, it's been a minute since I've posted. I've gotten a lot of good stuff done on my 70', Thanks Rona'! Basically, I've gotten the frame complete with new stainless fuel and brake lines along with these braces that connect the upper and lower links. I also prepped and sprayed a two part epoxy (summit racing brand and it worked really nicely), seam sealed (AC Delco sealer, and at $14 / tube it was worth it) and then bed-liner (Rustoleum) on the bottom of my car. I think it all turned out fantastic. Should absorb lots of road noise and help with road debris.
I have a few loose ends to get together like the upper A-Pillars, cowl shoulders, and a few other spots that need attention with a grinder and welder before I proceed with body filler (not that this car will need much as all exterior panels are new)
Next up is buying doors, radiator core support, inner fenders, and fenders. Then getting them fit correctly before everything gets stripped of the EDP coating and sprayed with epoxy. Overall, super excited with the progress.
I'm wondering if I'm missing anything on how I should proceed? This feels like the next logical step to eventually getting bodywork and everything mocked up before paint. I've heard of some guys doing their engine work before paint but I'm furloughed right now (I fly buses..) and spending what I want to spend on an engine (and other related items) is a lot of wasted expense....at least right now.
But yeah, overall just looking for some wisdom on this.
