big bee hood project

By jphillips

I have started to restore the hood on my 69 gtx ,(I needed a winter project),the hood had some fine cracks,and one nasty orange peel GASH !,,,so with a little bondo and lots of sanding,its almost ready for primer,,,I was looking for some advice on what kind of paint to use on the flat black part of the hood,,,so far the best match I found is a product called TRIM BLACK ,,,can anyone tell me of the proper paint to use or where to find it??,,,I will post some pics when finished,,thanks all.

BARN FIND !

By jphillips

I found this car in a w.virginia barn,,the farmer wanted it gone to make room for some farm eq,,,the old timer had rubbed her down with some kind of oil when he stored it back in 1988 !,,the oil bath seems to have preserved the car very well !,,I am not much of a ford man but I love the lines on this car,,,then I see it has a 429 cobra jet under the hood,,,SOLD !,,I wont even say what I paid for the car but I will tell you it was a deal I could not pass up,,,I cant wait to get into this car,,,I will keep my garage updated on what should be a very interesting project,,,,oh and if you look real hard ,you will see it comes complete with a BULLET HOLE !,,( maybe a old shine runner),,,,,,HEY I BETTER LOOK IN THE TRUNK !,,,

someones car is left out in the cold !!!

By jphillips

This is my wifes car,,,left out in the cold !,,(there is no more room in the garage),,I told her we should have built a bigger one,(he ,he,),,,all the classic iron is all tucked away and Toasty!,,but alas , one poor sedan is left to brave the storm,the moral of this blog is (BUILD IT BIGGER),,,,because the garage, in my opinion,should be bigger than the HOUSE,,,,,merry x-mas everyone........jerry.

From suburban to chevelle 454 is ready to rumble !

By jphillips

I purchsed this motor last year it was in a 1976 suburban,it was a real mess,,but after a little TLC and a bottom end rebuild its ready to go,,the next project will be to upgrade the drum breaks so I can get the thing STOPED !,,,,I was suprised how little modification is needed to go from the small block to the big block,,so if your thinking of a swap like this ,,dont be scared,,its not so bad.....thanks for looking and happy motoring!! ,,jerry.
