Got a BBQ to go to this afternoon but I got done what I needed to. The car is in the booth, prepped, primed, and ready for the final wetsand tomorrow morning, then will lay color. Tomorrow morning will be fun!

Where is our LM Sport Sedan lover "rnch" while all this is going on? I am posting this especially for him!

that will be a schweet looking, sharp edged more-door monza when you are done with it!


having contrasted primed and blocked out a couple of cars; i know how time consuming and tedious it can be.

but once the color & clear is laid on; you will be quite pleased with all the grunt work you did prepping this car.



thumbs up

Hmmmm, no paint photos . . . I guess it didn't happen.

Don't keep us all in suspense Ryan . . . post some photos. Or are you spending all your time at the Keg Fridge?

Sorry to keep everybody in suspense. Been working hard to get the car done before Saturdays car show. Ended up cutting 2 full coils out of the front and back springs to get her low like I wanted.

Saturday I will get better pictures when its in the sun, the paint is very very copper metallic-y and really sparkles in the sun. I had more dust end up in the paint then I would like to admit, I am having some paintbooth problems at the moment. Sanding out the dust doesnt help because it leaves little black spots. No clear here this is all single stage.

Long story short I will probably repaint it in a month or two once I get my booth issues solved. Especially now that I know it only takes about 3 hours to dissassemble the car.

Since my wife enjoys driving the car (her name is Carolyn) we have nicknamed the car "Carevair"

So it only made sense to have script made accordingly...

No issues with just me in the car, loaded with 4 people it could be another story will find out Saturday. I cleared the fender lips to help with this issue.

Ryan,

Photos look great . . . dust is always a problem, even in a professional booth.

Like the wheels and stance on the sedan, 4-doors Rock.

Thanks for bringing us up to date.

Woohoo, can't wait to cut the rear coils on mine. That looks awesome. Too bad about the dust.

I had to put an electric fuel pump on the car about this time last year due to the mechanical one crapping out. I suppose if I bought that one I wouldnt have to worry about it any more.

Ron L, 2 whole coils front and rear seems to be the right height for me, I started with 1.5 front and rear but it wasnt low enough...

As of 8 pm tonight I have finished what I have started. In less than 2 weeks I completely transformed my sedan to a show worthy car with plenty of style. Time to kick back with a cold brew from that famous beer fridge!

It's interesting how much more a wheel upgrade from 13" makes a difference on a 4 door vs 2 door. On a coupe it's a wheel swap, on a sedan it's a totally different car. Kind of the same effect on the new Charger and Magnum sedans.

More pics for my Corvair picture collection that's for sure.
