Well I figured with the purchase of my dumpy hardtop, it was time for a build thread. It won't be a faced paced thread because my money has a lot of priories at the moment, but we started a major project this weekend, so it's time!
Bought a hard top!
Finally picked up a hardtop. It was a dumpy blue one I got on the cheap from a local legend. Needed a ton of work, but I'm up to the challenge..... I think.... probably not.
The color was "Nappa Blue" and it looked like total ****. No ***** were given when this car was sprayed, and it showed. All the seals were over sprayed and effectively ruined, even the clasps on the inside of the car somehow got paint on them.
Got a few too many "Gay Captain America" jokes on day one, so insecure me took a can of rustolium to the car, and made it black for a week or so. Looked OK..
We sanded that bitch till our eyes bled. All the way through the dirty blue, and the white below it.
Fortunately I have access to a very nice place to work.
Bondo Bondo everywhere.
Starting to come together.
Put a small hole in the top of the crack.... fill that bitch with fiberglass, and resin the **** out of it.
Hopefully that will all sand away sometime this century....
A **** ton more block sanding is needed, more work on the low spots is needed, and the fiberglass needs attention for sure. More work for next weekend.....
