Re: '65 Coupe Resto-Mod and '68 Full Custom Restoration

Another day in Charleston. Got a LOT done on the car today. Got the car into a sanding booth and we went over the entire car with 120 grit sandpaper. It looked far better to me after the whole car was sanded, but both John and Kerry (John's son and shop manager) identified a number of places that ne...

Re: '65 Coupe Resto-Mod and '68 Full Custom Restoration

Well, here is the good, the bad and the ugly. The Good ... I made it to Charleston without difficulty, except for a heated argument I had with my GPS. I wanted to go one way and it wanted me to go a different way. After a while, I won the argument, but it paid me back. I went to Charleston the way I...

If you are like the rest of us, you will know every nut, bolt, washer and screw on your car when you are finished. Nice to see it is moving along.

Re: '65 Coupe Resto-Mod and '68 Full Custom Restoration

Well, the truck is loaded, the '68 is out of the car trailer, the '65 is in the car trailer, all the parts are loaded, truck is gassed up and I am finally ready to hit the road tomorrow morning. Kind of a funny thing while trying to unload the '68. I backed up the trailer under my Dad's carport, uns...

Re: '65 Coupe Resto-Mod and '68 Full Custom Restoration

Tonight I load up the '65 for it's trip to Charleston. Getting it there will be a major milestone, and hopefully it will be practically finished soon. Don't know if they will be able to finish it before I need to leave or if I will have to leave it and make a second trip up to get it, either way, it...

Re: '65 Coupe Resto-Mod and '68 Full Custom Restoration

I just got off the phone with Jamison's in Charleston. Kerry said that the SEMA convention last week in Las Vegas was really great, even overwhelming. They curently have a bit of work in house and a little scheduled, but November - December is generally a very slack period for them. We decided that ...

Re: '65 Coupe Resto-Mod and '68 Full Custom Restoration

Starting to get really pissed about this windshield. I fixed the leak from around the vent door housing, but I still have a leak from under the left side of the dash from somewhere. It is a drip size leak, but if I don't find and stop it, something tells me it won't get better with age. Might wait u...

Re: '65 Coupe Resto-Mod and '68 Full Custom Restoration

Well,, put on the zuit-suit this morning and ground away all the areas needed to close in the ventilation door opening. Turned out to be pretty easy once I got all the wires out of the way. Ground all the broken glass away and cleaned up the filler piece I had made. The long screw is a handle for me...

Re: new member

I have a '95 Targa Top. a '68 convertible and a '65 coupe. Like the '65 coupe a lot, but still really enjoy driving the '68 with the top down, or at least I will once it's resto is finished. the most until returning home to Florida. Now I like the '65 coupe with air. '95 is not my best choice of all...
