  2. 65 Coupe to Fastback "Phoenix"

    Well i finished sanding the exterior and found a little bondo at the bottom of the rear glass. Nothing crazy, a little surface rust on the roof. Afterwards it was time to replace the hinge on the bottom of the drivers door and adjust everything. I spent over an hour getting this gap and fitment right...IT is a pain in the ass!! On top of that the hinge gets hung if opened all the way and i have to tap it with a hammer to break free. Will a little grease fix that?

    Mike is right! I only used my plasma cutter to cut out rusted floor pans before it broke (Ebay Cheap). Its awesome for that because it makes quick work of it but in the long run they arent the best for a lot of stuff.

    Got a ton more fitment to do but im thinking i might just go ahead and run 80 grit over the whole car this weekend and get it sanded down somewhat even. So much stuff to do and my adhd has me all over as usual

    Ok i have it fitting better now. I actually didnt realize you could lower the hinge some. So its pretty even now except that bottom corner and i need to figure out how to get the drivers corner to fit better still. Ill probably have to cut the metal and raise it up a bit

    started fitting the duck tail. Looks like i got the Driver side rear a little off when i welded it in.

    Got this USC All Metal filler on the cowl and lead fill areas. Will need more on the top of the qtrs but a good start for now. The cowl area worked real good but i also used a 8" dry wall spreader on it. This stuff is a little weird to spread but it works pretty good. I should of used something small on the back part as i couldnt get it to even out how i wanted

    lol, well i went out yesterday and the garage still stunk of fumes but i decided to just clean the garage and organize a little then i added the second coat...Yeah, the garage is still reaking this morning

    Worked on more fitment today on the fender wells and got everything where i want it. Now i need to start prepping and get out the bondo to really start proper fitment. Also finally coated the actual inside of the trunk with Rust Encapsulator but my whole garage smells of fumes so im taking a break to let it air out a bit. Keeping the garage door closed due to the colder weather really kill it when your in the back

    Spent the day working on getting the front to fit better. Took Rich's advice from MTF and drilled out all the front spot welds and pushed the fenders out about 1/4" on the bottoms and now have a much better fit. Still going to need some filler and work but not nearly as much.
