Re: Having a lot of trouble aligning fender skirts and radiator

I'm scratching my head as to what would cause of the misalignment. By playing with all of the adjustments you mentioned you should be able to get it aligned properly. I don't know if this is even possible, or if it would even create an issue, but is there any chance you switched the control arms (pu...

Re: Front body panel separation. Suggestions?

It looks like the body panel may have debonded from the bonding strip but, boy, that would be an odd occurrence. It would take a lot of stress to cause that to happen.

Re: Cleaning the firewall

I used a sander to get the worst stuff off, too. For the nooks and crannies I scraped as much as I could out with a putty knife and a flat head screwdriver. I probably didn't get all of it out - did the best I could.

Sweet pic, I bet that was fun!

I wish I could drive mine. Unfortunately it's still in far too many pieces. It's getting close though! :thumbs:

So if nobody finishes their project, does somebody win? And how do you declare a winner in a race that nobody finishes? :scrazy: :ROFL:

Re: razor blade paint removal

I used simple steel razor blades. Worked like a charm taking off the top coat. It didn't do as well with the primer though. Either way, I'd definitely do it again. Just be very careful not to gouge the underlying fiberglass. :thumbs:

Re: 71 Sees Daylight After 21 Years!

What a pain, ceased bolts are a total pain. I've never had much luck drilling them out either. It's too bad you had to sacrifice the manifold but at least you saved the head. I ended up breaking one of my manifolds tearing the engine down too. All that heat just really accelerates the corrosion proc...
