Yeah I'm pretty set on doing it that way. Going to pick me up a body chassis and use that.

Re: My 1964 Chevelle SS

Have you had a chance to look at your frame yet? it may need it also. I've done the windshield channel, dash portion , pretty much straight forward.

May need blasting? I'm going to blast and powder my frame when I get the body off pretty much the same weekend. (fingers crossed).

I'm not so much worried about the dash as I am the back window section on the right. Hopefully it doesn't get much worse.

Re: My 1964 Chevelle SS

Made some good progress in my opinion. Got the body off during this weekend with the help of my family. Managed to snag some photos of the progress.








Frame is already at my shop ready to get blasted and powdered. Should be fun!

Re: My 1964 Chevelle SS

A little progress here and there. Got the frame in the blaster




Noticed a kink in the rear of the frame, so got that fixed and ground down some of that nasty factory splatter.



Ended up replacing the rear panel since it was too dinged up for my liking.



Prepared the frame for boxing

Re: My 1964 Chevelle SS




Came time to get it all smooth and powder






It dulled out a hair once it cooled down from it's hour long oven cook. Threw it on a trailer and took it over to the two post where it will be assembled. Gave it the lovely birthday gift (If anyone noticed the frame's birthday is 4/14/18 (Today) with some rear end components.





For the most part it was a smooth day, except for lucky me learning that the rear end upper control arm bushing is a single year O.D. bushing, to which Chevelle forums saved me and gave me an Autozone Part Number (FB295) saved me and allowed me to continue installing.

Not bad progress today.

Called up Hotchkis today and they actually gave me the same part number to the Duralast Cross Reference part of FB295 (For anyone else curious). I called up Energy Suspension today to get those two bushings in polyurethane so I'll just press out the rubber and install the poly into the metal can and throw it back in. Shouldn't be too hard. Probably didn't need to do it but I figured I'm here and I'm working above the car so why struggle 25 years down the road trying to replace it. I'm only 20 and plan to hold onto it for a while longer.

Re: My 1964 Chevelle SS

Haven't had (What I felt) is a crazy amount of progress, but I'm getting there!







Figuring it out a bit by my lonesome here and there, but for the most part seems like it's going smoothly.

Re: My 1964 Chevelle SS

Good to see your progress! I hadn't checked in for a while. You don't know how lucky you are being able to blast and powdercoat everything!

I haven't posted any progress photos of the whole front end and what not like I should have.

Sadly had to put on my big boy pants when I turned 21 and get on a steady career path as a project estimator in San Francisco, so I'm no longer seeing all my parts that I still had ready to get to powder. BUT very much so it is on my mind. Found a body shop in Auburn, CA that I very much intend to bring my pile to when the time comes, but until then I chip slowly away during the weekends.
