Sanded out the runs on the driver door skin. I will paint it first thing in the morning. I had installed the passenger door skin on my car. I had to remove it to replace the little retainer clip on the locks arm. I wasn't able to get it on the arm while mounted on the door frame. The heat is crazy out there this evening.

Driver side door is painted. I will let it cure until Monday to add the decal and door handle.

Humidity is a killer in my garage already this morning. I'll put up a picture later in the afternoon of the door skin. Finished for the day.

Single stage Kirker Acrylic Urethane. I got it threw WWW.AutoBodyToolMart.com I used their Perfect Prime two part primer. Easy to sand, and has great filler properties. I found it necessary to use a cap full of reducer with one cup of mixed paint to stop orange peal. I had to buff some of the first pieces I painted. But after the reducer arrived, I am shooting good smooth top coat with a $40.00 Harbor Freight HVLP paint gun.

Thanks for the info. The single stage paint appears very glossy. I am reluctant to respray my car using clear coat because of what the sun here does to the clear. Being acrylic urethane, I imagine the paint will be very durable and chip resistant. Did you have to use a flex agent with the plastic panels?

Also added the little silver GM square emblems:

Painted the outside mirrors housings and the engine vent grates gloss black this morning. I will put the glass parts back in the housings tomorrow, and put them back on the doors. One day out in the Texas sunshine for a good drying. They came out pretty darn good

I'll put up a picture later today.

I dropped one of the mirror housings yesterday and ruined the paint job. Sanded and re painted it after work today.

I hooked up my vacuum pump to the AC and attempted to pull a vacuum. No deal. I remembered later that I had added the new under car AC lines, and did not replace one O ring. Removed the line and sure enough, no O ring there. I will replace it and try it again tomorrow.

I was able to get the drivers side door put back together yesterday including re aligning the door skin. Looks real nice when I was finished. I installed the right side out side mirror before knocking off for the day. Gonna finish up the passengers side door tomorow.

Sanded both rocker panels, drip rails and engine vent screen thingy. I also did the windshield wiper cover. All pieces primed. I will hit all pieces with a 3M gray scuff pad after around 3-4 hours of sitting out in the Texas sun. All will get 2 good coats of gloss black tomorrow morning before the heat arrives.

I was looking for problems with my AC system and found loose connections where the hoses thread onto the gage set, and the 134A connectors connect to the hoses. All tightened down and a nice vacuum pulling down in the garage right now. I'll check it in an hour.

When I moved my 88 out of the garage to prime the parts it was the first time I had ever driven the car with a complete interior. It was a lot quieter than I had been used to .

Busy morning here. I scuffed the rocker panels, and the other small parts I primed yesterday. Washed all with 'JOY' dish soap and water. Painted all pieces gloss black.

All pieces out in the Texas sun baking until 5pm. Back on the car tomorrow.

Added the drip moldings to the forward roof section. Buffed out both quarter panels so I wouldn't get any thing on the newly painted rockers.

Added the driver side rocker panel on the car after work today. It was 99 in teh garage. One was all I wanted to mess with. Humidity is around 90%. One added and I was soaking wet with sweat. I am gonna do the passenger side tomorrow AM. Add the tail lights back on the car also so we can take a little ride with the interior all intact. . Might be able to see how quiet is is with the windows all up.

It looks sweet in the garage wit the rockers back on!

I got up early and put the right side rocker back on the car, I assembled the right side tail light , and started to install it. Noticed that the black paint was pretty thin Decided to repaint the blacked out parts on both rear tail lights. Back on the car tomorrow AM.

Wow Joe, finally finished this thread. The car looks great and you have me thinking of a 3.4 for one of my cars. Whenever I get a garage I will probably pick your brain on how you did some of this stuff.

Ben I located a box about the right size today for your 120 Speedometer. I will take it to the post office tomorrow.

I am pretty happy with the 3.4. I am thinking about a 4T60 overdrive for an over the winter project. I am turning 3000 rpm at 70 MPH. Our Malibu is only running around 1800 rpm for the same speed. I think you will be happy with the 3.4.

I plan to swap the engine and trans out at the same time. I think a 3.4 would be good for Becca's car because she likes the look of the stock 2.8 and was fine with the power her auto had. I figure a 3.4 and newer auto trans would work will for her 84.

Best that you locate a parts car for the swap. One you can keep near. You can't remember how stuff was installed or indexed until it is crunch time. You will discover a thousand things and fasteners you need when you get to installing it back in the car. Poe has been my best friend for the last year and a half. Take lot and lots pictures of everything before you remove them.

This is on my 'To Do' list. I have a friend who does this for a living. I am gonna take it to him and let him put in the UV dye. I purchased me a good 51 bulb UV flashlight for $13.00 at Amazon.com.

I ordered me a new 3 row Champion radiator today after work.

I am not sure the factory cooling system is 100 % right now. I did notice the cooling temperature was running around 208 * Sunday while cruising. This was my first time to drive it with the complete interior in the car. Ambient temperature was around 96-97* I had never driven the car with it this hot outside.

I'll post a picture of the new radiator when it gets here one day next week.

I was up at 7:00 am on my day off. I installed the rack back in the car. It was sweat city outside by 9:00 am. I am at a good point to stop for today and will re attach all the tie rods and such tomorrow morning at 7.

When I got home from work yesterday it was 110* in the garage. To hot to try to get anything done week days.

I haven't done any work on the Coupe this week. I torqued and lubed the outer tie rods this morning, and put both front wheels back on the car. I will try to get the front end aligned this week.

I will change the oil and filter for the 500 mile after engine overhaul Saturday morning. I am gonna replace one AC seal where the hoses connect to the two long lines behind the drivers seat while I have it up in the air for the oil change.

For a good seal, use Nylog on the O-rings.
