went much much better this time around even though it doesnt show well in pics. Spent the morning sanding everything then i hit it with 3 coats. Amazing what setting your gun to the proper operating PSI will do. I also remember to actually mix the paint before mixing it with hardner and such. So the sheen is way different. I still have to paint the scoop inserts but they need some work as well as the inner areas of the trunk and fenders.

Massive difference! Bet it gave you a good feeling after that forced sanding session.

Im thinking about doing the Mach hood decal/paint with matte black on this satin black. Idea is to use tape to line it out without the little outline and hit it with plasti dip. Its kinda going to be like a ghost look. Just slightly dull in comparison so may be hard to tell unless you look or it may stand out more then i think.

Thoughts?

Blacked out the inner areas for hood and trunk. Nothing crazy. Also some misc parts were painted. Gonna start on the intake and carb next week

Finally got back to work. So i was all ready to go and remove the intake and it was a giant pain in the butt!!! The distributor is stuck, everything is in the way. I had to use a pry bar to break the manifold free. But ive got it off and cleaned. Next comes installing it but i need to wait on a couple parts. 

Can someone help me with what all the vacuum lines go to? I have 3 on the intake that split off the break booster. Then i guess its one, that screw on right below the carbs choke? WTF? Lines everywhere!! lol

Any i can just get rid of?

On the bright side..Engine looks clean

got a little more done. Modified the throttle cable bracket to where it will work. Then made a return spring bracket. Still have a way to o, including some new hoses and fluids. Hopefully ill get her started soon. Need to find a new C clip for the throttle cable as mine is missing.

Finally got a little more done. After ripping some threads out of my aluminum intake I found a longer screw for the one corner. Then I realized I didnt need the bracket I made so I setup my spring system. Pulled off the fuel filter and started shaking it and rust just started coming out. So I'll be replacing it. I then installed the trunk finally. It was int he way I was starting to think I'd scratch it. I cant bekieve what a pain in the ass it was then get lined up. It's still too far to one side but without being able to shim it I dont know how to adjust that.

Well did a few more things on the engine and its nearly ready to get started and tuned. I moved on to the leaf springs. What a pain! I broke the bolt off one shock and had to cut the shackle bolt on the passenger side. Then on top of it the poly bushing I guess I ordered are a pain!! Plus the exhaust is in the way. I did change over to 5 leaf springs and I added a 1"

You sleep in your garage or something?
