That car seems to have some super solid bones! Your milestone updates are great motivation for me to keep at my project... Thanks!

Thanks!  I wanted to be at this point last month, but I'm happy we are here now.  I've always said that a grown man will cry when the paint comes off a Coupe, but in this case, I can say that I have been very Blessed with a good car.  There are some minor pin holes in evidence after the blasting, but nothing at all serious.  Full steam ahead...

Well you can run the a/c ducts from the trunk through them.

Stinks the deck lid was cut for speakers.. oh well. 

 

 

I found some close matching grey speaker cloth (my interior's grey) and covered the whole back shelf in my NK with some decent 6x9's underneath. You don't see them unless you know they're there. 

 

Your car's going to come out better than the factory effort

Thanks, Nick. I need to sort something out. I have the single speaker in the dash for that sweet AM and SW monotone. I have a jack on the back of the Blaupunkt to hook up modern electronics.

That is one sweet Blaupunkt! 

 

Vern has speakers under the dash and back seat bulkhead, put there by a PO.

Athena has speakers in the front kick panels & rear parcel shelf, put there by a PO.

 

Upgraded all the speakers with Rockford Fosgates. Vern's system is all run through a Memphis Audio Amp.

Car now epoxy primed and has several coats of Lizard Skin sound deadener on the floors and heat resistant coating on the ceiling and firewall. Body work has commenced as well.

Are you doing the body prep and paint yourself or subbing it out?

That last pic is the absolute worst section on the car. It had a ton of filler from previous owner. Under that was a significant crease/dent. We replaced a large chunk of that with a W&N panel. Still it was ugly. Everything below the mid-bodyline was pushed in :(

The rest of the car is pretty minor in comparison.

I removed most of the paint with 3M discs on an angle grinder, then sent it out to be media blasted to remove paint in the hard to reach areas. 

 

My friend at this shop is painting the car. http://www.bloodshedmotors.com/
