New tail light mocked up on the fender....







And an overall shot with both in place, these are my final answer, no more changes from here on out!

Thanks guys, I always make a bunch of choices, and usually my first one stinks, that's why I ask for more eyes, because God knows I'm gonna goober it up if I get the chance! I got the steering column and wheel painted up, shifter installed, and foil around the base of the tail lights yesterday, here's some pics to enjoy!

And of course, it wouldn't be me if something didn't go horribly wrong near the end of the build. I was shaking up my Metalizer, and did not realize the lid wasn't fully tightened...next thing I know, I have Aluminum Plate all over my hand, and on the cab! Luckily, it didn't hit the wooden bed, which was right next to the cab, nor the boat, which was right behind it! Now for more re-painting, yay me!

would try a bit of mineral spirits on a q tip to rub off the metalizer first, if that doesnt cut it then i would think about a touch up on the paint

Wayne, it ate into the Candy Green, so a repaint is in order, no choice on that at all. The Metalizer is a bit too strong for it's own good! Gary, I used to let things like this bother me, but they happen just about every time, so I just regroup and do what I've gotta do to get it done! I had one custom that took 8 paint jobs, so I'm well versed in plowing ahead until the kit gives up and lets me win!

I got all the parts together for this one, and laid down more coats to fix my screw-up on the body, and got the bed parts painted too, but I forgot to take pics of the back fenders, but they came out great!. This should be re-masked and sprayed with some Candy Apple Green this weekend I hope!

A few more. I had to do a bit of fine sanding o the bed, tailgate and cab, but nothing major that will require more silver, thank God!

Thanks Wayne, I got the cab repainted with Candy Apple Green, along with the bed, fenders and tailgate, got some clear on the roof panel and bed cover, and re-sprayed some Candy Silver on the hood, hopefully I can get it masked and repainted with some Green later this week. So far, all looks great, so I may be in the home stretch on this baby finally!

Alrighty, we have more, better paint! The hod had to be sanded and resprayed in Candy Silver, but everything else is either in it's final color or already wearing it's Clear! I'll give the hood until Friday to cure, mask it off and throw the Candy Apple Green on it, and hopefully be able to Clear it next Sunday. The rest should be polished up and getting ready for assembly by Friday!

First up, the boat, finally in Clear!

And finally the bed cover, and all the parts in the dehydrator!

Wayne, I use it all the time, and even have a brand-new spare waiting for this old dog to fail eventually (It's only 9 years old!). Unfortunately on this build, the dehydrator is simply somewhere to put the arts while the paint hardens...too much filler to actually use the dehydrator without causing issues!

221 Re: 1965 Chevy Pickup & Hemi Hydro combo on Tue May 05, 2015 11:23 pm

I need to start doing that myself....I keep saying I'll do it on my next build, then forget about it until I've got it all sanded and ready for paint!

222 Re: 1965 Chevy Pickup & Hemi Hydro combo on Fri May 08, 2015 7:34 pm

Alright everyone, we have everything polished up and ready to go together...except the hood, it'll get masked and sprayed with some Candy Apple Green tomorrow. Enjoy the pics, lots more to come!

223 Re: 1965 Chevy Pickup & Hemi Hydro combo on Fri May 08, 2015 7:39 pm

The rear fenders didn't even need any polishing, I just hit 'em with some Meguiar's #7 and called 'em good!





The hole that the tailgate attachment pin uses cracked somehow, and left this beautiful looking missing area in its place...we'll see what I can do to either hide it or fix it....





And the cab. I'm very happy that I messed up the paint, it came out so much better the second time around!

224 Re: 1965 Chevy Pickup & Hemi Hydro combo on Fri May 08, 2015 7:44 pm

And in case I forgot to mention it, the boat is finished!

The braided line from the fresh-water pickup to the water pump was a royal PITA to get in place, but it finally gave in around 11:20 last night!





Pam's contribution to this build was this...some waxed thread for sewing leather! I removed as much wax as I could, added a hook, and put it on the reel...it actually works! I can hook it to the boat and crank the handle to pull the boat up, I didn't even plan that one, it just happened to work!

And the last bit of work I got in last night, a quick mock-up of the bed. The floor still fits perfectly, and the fenders and bed cover are also good to go!
