After just cleaning the original under carriage of Norwood built '69, I must say, that looks spot on! Nice job!

It looks good James. Was there a windshield/dash leak at one point? (looks like silicone in that area?)

Charlie asked the same thing on Yenko...
No there is no silicone, it was stripped of all original seam sealer dustless glass blasted and then rolled around on the rotisserie with epoxy coming out of every where before seam sealing.
It's the stupid 2 part beige automix seam sealer...
I was talked into coming into the 2000's and hounded to stop using "old technology". 



PROBLEM is it doesn't look like the original and it doesn't tool ANYWHERE CLOSE to how the original stuff tools.
I only left it there because it is better RE weather sealing, and because it is covered by trim.  everwhere it's visible I removed it and went with 3m fast & firm beige....

Shooting some tests for the asphalt heavy build sound deadener/undercoating...
Less pressure = thicker coating and more surface texture.


Drivers door skin was replaced with a NOS one in the early 70's but never sound deadened/undercoated


Inside the trunk on the quarters - sound deadener/undercoat


Inside the rear wheel wells

Great paint overspray details. In the second photo, is the body plug in the trunk floor 'recess up', or 'recess down'?

Great pics James. Great detail, and an eye for it. How many guys have cars lined up trying to get into your shop? :D

I've got a waiting list which is already longer than I would like... 
a 69 vette and two Z28's.

I was working in a much much smaller area for the previous 15 years (2 car garage with a set of pallet racks down one wall) This forced me to become VERY efficient, suddenly being spread out has cost me SO much time looking for tools and supplies in the last 6 months that I bought numerous tools AGAIN and doubled up on all kinds of thinners, catalysts, flatteners, etc - 

FWIW Retrieving supplies and tools from where they belong is great, ONCE you know where they are located.

Well you look like you get a lot of satisfaction out of your work, and I think in time that shop will be ideal. WTG
