    Yep, didn't want to go crazy. I can get my arm to the elbow, and shop vac all the way across. Can always make it bigger!

    Weather is trying not to cooperate Monday!! Grrr, its been 85 and sunny for the last couple weeks.... Overnight rain is going to make humidity tough, and its not warming up till late afternoon now.

    But I got about 15 mins in the garage after packing up for the weekend.

    Got fittings and a whip made up for my new desiccant dryer. Have a 1/2" air line I will run out to the gun. (its all 3/8 to the filters tho)

    [​IMG]

    And got a gallon of this stuff! Probably way more than I need, but 3 quarts was almost the same price.

    I have painted a few of mine my self,its not hard.Dont mix a lot of paint and just do something small the first time for practice.I have a metal man door in my garage,it has many coats of different color paint,I use it to set up the gun and to practice on.

    Yep I have sprayed bumpers etc, but nothing this big! Planning to do it in the driveway for the epoxy. Kinda nervous, but I'll make it work! Was going to mix half gallon. Had 8 hour pot life.

    If you are shooting epoxy don't use a good guy,it will destroy it.Buy a cheap gun for epoxy only.I use old style suction guns,one for epoxy,one for building primer and a good gun for paint.

    Try to go from end of panel to end without stopping,and remember epoxy is very hard to sand,so smoother the better.

    Two stepladders and a good extention plank or some solid 2x8/2x10's over milk crates. Should be able to walk along and lay it down pretty quickly.

    Very good ideas,but I don't have the parts! I have a 3' plank, I can reach most of it from that I think. I can just about hit the middle with the bags dumped. We will see shortly. Have to air back up for the rockers

    All Gray!! Mixed up too much paint... Roof was a bitch, Couldn't reach the whole thing, and the middle is a stretch.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    So I think I went a bit dry, its a little rough, and where I was down low trying to get the rockers it seems smooth and shinier. You can see the reflection a bit here.

    [​IMG]

    Its lumpy...

    [​IMG]

    Little run action

    [​IMG]

    Desiccant seemed to work, went from blue top pink?

    [​IMG]

    Since I was painting I hit the door handles with some gloss black, and clear. Clear ran on me, but its not terrible.

    Now on the running and driving front. How is the kick down lever supposed to work? This one has a bolt that is suspiciously not factory looking so it starts moving immediately with the throttle? There is a lot of throw in the system however.

    Started on the EFI and wiring last night.

    Step one, find a spot to drill a 2" hole in the firewall. The factory AC EATs a lot of space behind the dash. My lord its huge. All the heater ducts have become paper scraps and slinkys also....

    [​IMG]

    Probably didn't need the "long" harness LOL

    [​IMG]

    Octopus spread out, ignition control and coil mounted

    [​IMG]

    Crimped up some new battery leads, engine ground and starter cable. All 4ga thin stranded copper.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    All in place, just need to hook up the factory stuff now. I need coil + and the starter circuit to the solenoid.

    [​IMG]



    Then I mounted one of the collectors..... Exhaust is going to be a challenge.... Literally on the engine crossmember.

    [​IMG]

    Is this a valve cover vent? Threads are correct, and its curved the right kinda direction.

    OK but it is more or less a valve cover vent? Just goes into the air cleaner?

    I am wondering if the PO put my valve covers on the wrong sides.... The hole in the valve cover that screws into is on the passenger side, more towards the rear. And the oil filler is right by the master cylinder in a hard to use spot.... Hmmmmm flip them side to side??

    Using The stock manifolds... Do those three bolt ones move the outlet back at all?

    Yep! Its happily living on the floorboards now :D

    My engine was replaced at some point in its life. I have those threaded connections on both valve covers with the oil fill on the passenger side. Not sure if the three hole manifolds move things back. You could probably ask that question over in General Tech for the differences.
