Most of the car is in epoxy now and I’m just trying to get the panels as straight as possible within my skill set. I had a huge (3/4”) panel gap between the right front fender and the door. My solution was to add some length to the fender with some fiberglass. I had no issues with the drivers side. 

 

How she sits now.

No before photo of gap but here is the fiberglass extension.

Gap closed. The guide coat makes it look larger at the bottom.

A couple weeks ago it was too hot to work in the garage, so I moved progress indoors and replaced the seat inserts of one of my OMP Classic seats with a fabric by one of my favorite mid century designers; Alexander Girard. I think it gives it a vintage Motorsport look.

Lastly, I tackled the interior sound deadening. I used the dry ice method and it was pretty easy. I used 30lbs of dry ice and filled 3 large ziplock bags. Let it chill for about 25 minutes and banged away. Easy-Peasy.
