got to work on my baby again tonight so i decide i might as well paint my door jams,so i sanded them all down with 600 then 800 wet sanding,and layed 3 coats of cbalt blue metallic then 2 coats of clearcoat,so now i can move onto my hood and fenders also need to be sanded and sprayed cobalt blue metallic,i will be dropping my engine in this week if everything goes as planned.and i can find a good 4 speed tranny for the right price.if not im just gonna go with a 350 turbo for now and collect all the parts for my tko 600 swap.

Looking good. Cant wait to see the power plant. 350 turbo tranny is a work horse. Ive had one in my 68 for about 15 years. Still going strong.

BTW - Noticed in your pictures the wrinkles in the fire wall above the transmission tunnel - I have seen this on a lot if not all 79's I assume it was purposely done by GM to add strength and give it a crush point. After looking at mine for months ok ….. More than a couple years during my rebuild it was driving me nuts and I decided to smooth it out.

This is great! May I ask what products you are using? Looking to get myself a 2nd gen project as well.

Are you painting this by spray can?
Sanding by hand?

It is looking great!
