Fixing Things

The past couple of weeks have been busy, first polishing, then un-polishing and fixing some hiccups.

I started by polishing the body.  Doesn't it look nice?

Just don't look at the spots I messed up, like this one.


I also found that the sway bar didn't fit properly.

So... back to fixing things!

First, I fixed the sway bar mount underneath the car.  I had to move the mount where it attached to the frame.  This meant cutting, re-welding, primer, base and clear so it almost looks like nothing ever happened.  Now, it fits.  

Then, I fixed all the little spots that I messed up... the firewall was the biggest one, but there were a couple of other small ones that weren't very noticeable (but I noticed!).

Then I sanded the body back down to 2000 grit and also tackled the wings.


Oh, and did I mention I got tires?  UniRoyal Tiger Paw 155/80 R13.

They look sooooooo good.

Next weekend--finish sanding and cut/polish everything, and maybe even get some wiring and the rear axle assembled.  Once the axle's on the car, I can put it on its wheels for the first time since 2004.

Wish me luck!
