Tub's Face Lift - in process

By Car_Go

Filed under: 1980 Chevrolet El Camino (the "Tub")

As the Tub's info said - it went into a paint shop on July Fourth 2012 with the impression that it would take a week. Here we are on August second and spoke with the shop yesterday and it sounds like they are doing a serious rust removal project here.

However; looks like the Tub is getting some extra's too.
The shop owner said that since there were so many hiccups in getting it done ...
(moving the shop to bigger place and former shop occupant not getting out in time which delayed the setting up of the paint booth).

Looks like they are going to fix the exhaust leak on the passenger side (new gasket between motor and headers) and they are installing a liquid bed liner which saves me the head ache. The shop owner said it would be better to install it to the metal instead of over the painted surface.

Hopefully it'll be done soon!
