Excellent taste in color! Needs something to set it off though...hopefully the shiny, big wheels will do that!

The paint looks great, it's good to see that you can see light at the end of the tunnel, and know it's not an oncoming train.

I like what you did with the quarter windows. The "bar" eliminates the need to fold the end over. Great idea!

Nice job. Very.

Bump and long overdue update!!!!! Work has been slow over the last few months as it is still winter here but, the car is I would safely say 80% percent done now. Today I got a bunch more interior done adding the seat belts and tucking and fitting wire bundles in places that they didn't exist before the 3800 went in. Sail panels are pre fabed and waiting for warm weather to install, sail panel trim pieces are all riveted and bonded now just need to wait for warm weather to paint them and other bits made too. Pretty happy with how it's going together so far and hopefully the weather starts getting nicer so I can pull it out of the garage and have more room to work on it. I think this week I should have the rest of the interior in and them time to modify all the trim plates o their new look. I am on the fence yet about the door panels if I want to leather wrap them or not I might not have enough material so I will explore that in a few more weeks when it warms up so I can do it in the sun when it is best to stretch the leatheret.

Had a bad day with the car, so the gel coat is letting go off the fiberglass in places on the nose and looks like there was lots of air pockets under it in the fiberglass so, we need to repaint it now after the sun hit it for a few hours. . Pissing me off big time. This nose has been a pain in the ass from day one. Hope we have enough paint left to fix it.

Wow, it is coming along nicely! SImply amazing.....

I would loved to watch the full video, but I could not hear the narration due to the music, and I could not take more than 30 seconds of that "music" before I had to stop it Like a kinder gardener learning to play the flute for the first time, and only knows 5 notes at that hahahh!

I just hate poor fiberglass work, there is no excuse for air entrapment. That bumper came for Whodeani, right? Sucks that you have rework this late in the game...

The car looks great. Sorry about the bumper issue. Just think of what you will have soon in your hands. A Nice set of keys to an awesome car.

Even more wide spread than I first noticed. I let it sit out in the sun and every place it has gel coat had same issues. now I am redoing the rear hips, the door tops and the front bumper. Luckily I had removed most of the gel coat off the hips when I added them so it was isolated to a few small spots same with the door tops. As much as it sucks I will not let the car leave here till I am satisfied it would be good enough for me if someone was doing it for me. It will get fixed just a little set back. Since I am grinding down the nose I am really considering adding the missing screw ledge along the top of it that on a stock bumper allows it to be closer to the hood without the hood rubbing on the screws when it opens. On a stock bumper if you look it overlaps the vertical part a bit that attaches to the metal frame. this bumper did not have that extension and to close up the hood gas we had to sacrifice the hood opening all the way to the second latch point. so maybe this was the excuse I needed to fix something that has bugged me from day 1

Nose in high build fill primer




Front fenders in high build fill primer.



I need to primer the roof, hood, back bumper, door skins and engine lid yet. Got too windy and was afraid id over spray the neighborhood so had to stop for the day. These were the biggest concern parts for me tho besides the door skins. There is a ton of pin holes in the gel coat I need to deal with but with the build primer on now it is a lot easier to see and fix before I sand it all down to its final state before paint. Happy Independence day A day late! Was kinda busy with family to post yesterday but here ya go!!



The irony in this post back then I saw some of the problems in the gel coat who knew there was even more hiding...

Ugh, what a freakin' pain. If you have the time, get the car out in the sun for a couple of weeks, just let it bake. I just hate doing a job twice because of bad fiberglass.

Looks like my comment about a light at the end of the tunnel was dead wrong. Sorry if I jinxed you...

BTW, welcome to the construction zone...

Wow what a surprise! I almost freaked out when the thread was closed in general! So still popping bubbles. I will let the bumper sit out tommorow if it is not raining again but I think I have found most of the issues. Started repairing them and so far I think I got the hips taken care of and now working on the door tops I have a ford focus in the way of getting it out of the garage at moment as I had the ford scheduled to be here for a trani fix thinking Johns car would have been in Milwaukee this week getting its parts bolted on so, till I finish up the ford it is stuck in the garage. I should be good by Sunday I think tho if everything goes right with the ford I got the trani back in tonight had a bad slave cylinder. just need to bolt it down and get a new trani mount from the bone yard tomorrow as it is cracked and I dont want to give it back like that. One thing I have been working on while I cant do other things is figuring out a way to support the rear decklid and I have come up with a nice gas strut to hold it open that does not get in way of supercharger or anything else. I will post pics of it soon. Think I may have top get a stronger gas strut tho right now I have a 60lb one on it but with the wing I think i will have to step up to a 80 and I am going to get a locking one too so it can be mechanically locked open on windy days at car shows.

Nice work Jets, and nice car Johnny.


Decided to leave them open in case anything from the road gets stuck in them like roadkill. Dont need it smelling like death.

John!!! I know your off playing flying gas station but I really need that door ram!!!! lol!! Most of the repairs to the gel coat are done I just need to spot prime a few spots then wait for the never ending rain to stop so I can leave the nose out in the sun some more and wrap that mess up. Onward!!! Trunk lid gas strut setup I made works nice! Might have to do one in my car too!

Repairs coming along, lots and lots of pin holes in the fiberglass to fill now that I have the nose stripped bare of the bad gel coat/bubbly fiberglass mudded up and sanded. Sprayed a light coat of fill primer on it tonight to see where I was at with it and I am thinking with a few more days of work being very picky I should have it ready for repaint by next week if all goes well. The hips and door panels are also in fill prim and need final sanding again.... This has been a nightmare to fix. Burnt 200 bucks in material so far between sand paper fill primer and mud and still need to get more paint probably. Not cool not at all when I am on a very tight personal budget.

Finished the last bit of wiring tonight as I had to modify a harness for the power mirrors. the bumper is fixed and ready for a final coat of filler just to be safe. the door skins are sanded and ready for paint same with the hips. I have decided to not show pictures of the rework areas I want this to be a happy memory and seeing the car as you see it above it will be again in 2 weeks when it goes back to Milwaukee for repaint. For now I am fine tuning things that bothered me the first time around and made a few changes that hopefully make it all worth it.Right now I am looking for a stick on seal l shaped rubber quarter by quarter neoprene black gasket for the hood. I do not like the hood gap but need ot for the hood to properly work so the solution will be to do like they do on a lot of the newer cars and fill gaps with gaskets. then I can color match the gasket using grey rtv it is almost a exact match to this paint and smooths out like glass using a old aircraft sealing trick I learned years ago.

John got The rubber on the Wheels finally, Hopefully it cools down a bit so i can stand being in the Garage!! was 98 in there tonight but put them on and I discovered the offset is prob pretty good for the back but for sure the front is just way too far off to even consider using those rims as it is not a off road stadium truck. We need a good Inch and a half or more to make it look right. Other than that waiting on door ram I put old one back in it for now so it cant go by mark for repair paint and all the trim parts added. Was messing with a few other things too blacking out areas and just starting to clean it all up while I wait.

John you have been waiting a long ass time to see this..... It's time to reveal the interior Don't pay attention to the steering wheel we have a gt one for it just not installed yet.





Cover under dash not on yet I have to wire in a switch for fog lights




Oops forgot to put the lenses in Ill do that in a bit...


Temp seat covers till you can get the MR Mikes ones It would be cool if MR MIKE would donate some................





Nose is fixed just need to put fog lights back in and wire them






Looks good so far but now for the bad......
We need to respray the mirrors and the left rear quarter panel again as more blisters in the gel coat on the wide hip popped out again. We will be able to fix them pretty quick tho as they are not as bad as the others were Still annoying tho we want this thing done!!!!! Far as the rest things left : install big brakes I will prob do that this weekend, get hardware to final install rockers and fender bottoms, drill hols for clips for front wheel well liners when I have the tires off for the brakes and then detailing till it goes back to Mark to get the paint fixed again. Once at Marks the beltline trim will go on, the wing and that's it pretty much done except new wheels and a alignment. I polished the whole car Wednesday it looks nice so far! Oh I need to go buy a tube of trim glue too the windshield trim is being a stinker so I need to reglue it back down if I dont just go get a new one this one seems to be oily causing adhesion problems with the glue.

Wow, I am sorry to see so many fiberglass issues! Just when you think it is painted and done, tons more sanding and doing it all over again.........
Did Dean make that front bumper?

Great progress with the interior, it's really looking sharp!

Ya it's been a long haul with Johns constant deployments and very sparse funding. it has been a really slow project, getting close tho the light is def there at the end of the tunnel ahead.
