Chop Shop | Almost there…

EDIT P1050772

Time for the interior of the A pillar to get the same treatment.

EDIT P1050789

See what I mean… Almost there.

EDIT P1050791

After a couple hours of buffing… I thought a good cleaning was in order…

EDIT P1050798

Everything’s nice and organized… =)

Chop Shop | Scrubbin’

That’s pretty much all I’ve been doing.

EDIT P1050772

So here’s the inside of the A pillar… It was more pitted than the exterior side…

EDIT P1050774

Close up – before.

EDIT P1050778

After an hour of scrubbin… I laid down some polish to see how far along I was.

EDIT P1050781

Better… but still not there.

Chop Shop | Summer Shoes

So they’re finally on… I’m prit-tay prit-tay happy.

Notice the cozy for my sewing machine… yeah… that’s what I wanted to focus on.

EDIT P1050753

I like.

EDIT P1050765

On another note… I’m almost done one A pillar… almost…

Chop Shop | Gouge is gone

EDIT P1050724

So I did a lil’ bit of sanding and polishing yesterday…

EDIT P1050725

5 mins in…

EDIT P1050727

10 – 15 mins in… my arms were prettay prettay tired.

EDIT P1050730

Almost there!… Although I do like the satin finish… I believe the factory finish was mirror… or at least very close to mirror… getting it to that finish will kind of suck.

EDIT P1050733

And… it’s gone.

Sightings | James Cameron…

“Curiousity… it’s the most powerful thing you own… Imagination… is a force that can actually manifest a reality…… Don’t put limitations on yourself… other people will do that for you… don’t do that to yourself… don’t bet against yourself… and… and… take risks… Nasa has this phrase that they like…”failure’s not an option”… but failure HAS to be an option… in art and in exploration… because it’s a leap of faith… and no important endeavor that required innovation was done without risk… you have to be willing to take those risks… so.. that’s the thought I would leave you with… is that in whatever you’re doing… Failure IS an option… but Fear is not.”

Chop Shop | Off…

With a lot of convincing, the frame’s finally off…

EDIT P1050638

This is what 43 years looks like… what a mess.

EDIT P1050640

Now time for cleaning…

EDIT P1050651

and fixing…lots of nicks and scratches… or gouges and bends… however you choose to look at it…

EDIT P1050657

The aftermath… everything’s on the table… Can’t wait to get the front end back together.
