Been doing body work now that the humidity isn't so bad. Passenger side quarter and deck lid are pretty much done. Working on the passenger side fender currently. Also been hand sanding all of the hard to get to areas... drip rails, a pillars, etc. Fun... Not.









I hate body work.

Put a new battery in mine.
The last optima went 7 years...so got another yellow top.
I need to re fit the hood and paint it.
The weather is starting to cool a tad to where body work is bearable.
Still havent put the front door panels on yet...why i dont remember.

Finished the passenger side fender Monday. Haven't been able to get to it since. Kind of dragging my feet, waiting for lower humidity weather. I want this thing to be right.

Default Bit more work done.

Hood was re test fitted then primed and blocked.
Then painted on the underside.
Flipped it over and did the top side then sanded 800 grit
The stencil kit was a pain..but got laid and masked.
Shot the white base..then unmasked for 3 coats clear.
Cut and buff in a few days.
Next project is to replace the antenna wire..its not making contact.
Then the gages on the cowl need moved and lines rerouted.
Perhaps some wiper arms.
A few pics.
