          After I block sanded the body I found a few areas that needed a little more work.







          I had forgotten how hard it is to see any imperfections in white primer. I should have sprayed gray and the white just before spraying orange.

          Two more coats of epoxy

              Today Brian cleaned all that nasty mess from under the windshield.

              No rust in the right windshield pillar.



              He found this on the drivers side.



              Brian cut out the rust and welded in a patch.

                  Excellent progress Rusty, got a question for ya, I have a 70 Mach, earlier this year I had to have the rear window removed for a headliner replace, the shop that did the glass, an established one, is having a bear of a time getting it to seal. I've returned it 3 times so far, still leaks at the top. Any suggestions for me??? I'm getting a bit worried as it is doing a number on the trim from the many removals and installs. Your thoughts???

                    I'm sorry but I don't have any good answers for you. We don't install glass. Was there any rust up there?

                    • Yesterday before Brian went home he got the body ready for paint. Finished taping, moved it in the booth and wiped it down with SPI wax and grease remover.





                      I got up early and was at the shop at 5:30 and mixed up a cup of reduced SPI white epoxy and sprayed a sealer coat. Around 9 I will start spraying orange.
