Saturday after running a few errands, I headed to the dealership and finished making the rear seat armrest brace and then sandblasted it. Learned that 16ga stainless steel is a bit tougher to bend than regular carbon steel but I think I did OK blacksmithing it!
 
 
 


On the Torino front, the guys ran into some surface rust on the roof skin that had gotten under the primer, so they are in the process of addressing and eliminating it prior to applying the skim coat.
 
 
 


Slow but sure progress none the less.

CJ, the plan is to work the sheetmetal until it's shiney, treat it with a rust converter, apply a coat of All Metal, dress it down, apply 3M Platinum Plus skim coat of body filler, block panel then epoxy primer.

right, just wondering if you used a sandable lacquer primer before, as it will allow moisture to penetrate!
 yep plan sounds good! just sand again over the areas treated with phosphoric acid again after it's treated the rust so the primer will adhere good!  if not i've seen masking tape pull paint and primer off down to the metal!!!ShockedOuch

While not a lot to show progress wise the last couple weeks, things are none the less moving forward. The guys are blocking the roof and it's proving to be a bit time consuming because not a lot of pressure can be put on the sanding block because of the flexing of the roof skin. but it's slowing coming around.
 
 
After the roof is all blocked out, they will move the car a bit to gain more room to work the lower driver side quarter and once it's wrapped up, the first coat of epoxy primer will be applied to the A pillars, roof, rear quarters and deck lid. Then the car will be turned around in the shop and the work on the doors, hood and front fenders will get underway.
 
Stopped in last weekend and test fit the rear seat arm rest panel and it slid into position nicely.....
 

I then went on into the dealership and pulled out my wheel lip molding to get it ready for shipping out for repair and refinishing then helped my buddy purge and relight the oil burner furnace in the shop area.
 
This weekend, I filled the weight bags with sand for use in weighting the doors for alignment with the quarters....
 
 
 

and then bubble wrapped the wheel lip trim and found a box to ship them in.
 
 
 

Next weekend I'll get the box padded and ready to ship.
