That is what it is for.
And I certainly hope so.


Thank you. :D

My second set of coupe quarter window garnishes were finally delivered today. FedEx tracking has had them "in transit" in Portland for a week. I bought a second dash cap on eBay a week after I bought these, and it arrived from the east faster by the USPS, and they have a boss that is sabotaging the operation. (Enough of political stuff...)

Anyway, the new quarter window parts are in about the same shape as the rest of the body. No cancer, but a fair amount of surface rust. The plan is to fit them to look as close to the original standard coupe installation as possible. The rest of the quarter area will be "flat/smooth" for lack of a better term. I did find some complete outer skins from a sport coupe, but they were cost prohibitive to say the least. Like almost as much as I paid for the shell to start with. Pic 1 is on eBay for just under $400. So, I found some pictures that will help me match things up. It will be a bit of work, but I like the challenge.

Now to wait for the next dry spell to take the thing apart and get it inside to work on.

Its all inside except for the sub-floor rails. Hopefully, much panel straightening and customizing will happen over the winter. I found some more clear pictures of the couple quarter windows that will help. Here's one.

Still adjusting to the change in weather. So...

Thinking about the quarter window challenge, I spent some R&D time the last couple days. YouTube fab vids, and paper and pencil time. The pieces I am working with are not exactly designed to do what I want to do with them, but I think I have a plan worked out to turn the inside panel into an outside panel.

Bad Chad is crazy, but some of his fab methods work.

Fitzee's Fabrications is interesting and different. I am considering some of his ideas. More complex, but may be worth the extra work.

I'm still around, but I am having serious motivational issues. Starting to think I needed to start with something more. I always do this basackwards. Too impulsive.

And its cold and wet. Waaa... :D



Anyway, hang in there, gang.

I'm glad you are back. Maybe you'll find some motivation here.
