Block sanding sucks. Spray it on, rub it off, repeat.

Don, it takes me at least 3 times to get things straight. Are you able to do it in less repetitions?

Looking good Don. Does this mean you are done with the metal work and now its on to paint or are you still doing some mods/repairs to it?

Not sure how you are coming along on the power windows but I had to go back to my buddies bone yard. The Lincoln SUV I grabbed this out of was a great option.
Track it simple two stud mount and two hole track for mounting window.

I have a friend in Pinckney who stops in often. He dropped off a pair of window units he bought and couldn't use in his car due to space constraints.
It took me all of an hour to bolt them into the wagon. Most of the time was spent drilling spot welds to remove the original stop brackets. I installed the switches in the console while the turkey was cooking yesterday. Anyway thanks for the info!

I have the mirrors mounted, the power window motors installed and I have been working on the console. Covering the console in 1/4 luaun so I can radius the edges for a softer look.

Good progress! I assume you had to work some to help the turkey disappear. Smile

I am really close to the paint stage so it was time to drill the holes for the molding clips. That way everything will get sealed with the final primer coat.
