"The Orange"

    Recommended Posts

    FINALLY!  Orange paint.  This is great to see.  Parts are ready to install as soon as she arrives at my place.  Still probably going to be a few weeks.  Needs final body paint and color sand and polish.

    She's Orange!  Nice to have the paint done.  Will dry and then get color sand.  This might be at my place in a couple weeks.  I am so ready.

    Got most of the suspension in along with the rear diff and CV joints.  Also installed fuel and brake lines.

    Rich,

    What did you do to harness holders in the engine bay? Original? Redone?

    Hand painted with a small brush and gloss black paint.

    Very nice!

    Does it hold up to being closed onto the harness?

    Yes, it does fine. Same as the new paint.  I just paint the rubber portion.  Touch up if needed after bending over harness

    Looks fantastic.

    What paint was used? Acrylic enamel, like original? More modern base coat clear coat?

    More progress.  Got the drivetrain completely installed along with the E-brake and rear hatch.  Also installed the manifolds and carbs along with radiator and fan.

    Well this thread is amazing...

    but also makes you realize just how much work and attention to detail is involved and most importantly how far you have to go on your own project! 

    Really great work motorman. 

    What’s your rules for silver vs yellow plating? Looks like everything suspension/steering/drivetrain and engine bay gets yellow and silver for everything else?

    also how did you finish your halfshafts? Is it clear over aluminum paint? Looks quite striking, only ever seen black used. 

    Do you just wire wheel and clear coat the gearbox case?
