    fiberglass bumper I made from pieces of a busted up bumper that i reworked to fit the car and re designed. it's about 70% hand made 30% pieces from the bumper I salvaged some parts from.

    here's an update from today.. i got the mold ready for fiberglass finally so i should have it in primer this weekend and get my replacement doors on the car. to bad I'm not making import wars this Sunday though But my last hope for running the car down the track is Cecil County so hopefully everything works out fine. Hopefully everyone like's my interpritation on the DC yellowbird hood.

    Re: 87 CSX #175 project log

    wow looks like i let this thread slip a bit.. but I cought a nasty stomach virus or something that kicked my butt for a week or so and i'm now just getting over a headcold... grrrr.. the hood is almost ready for primer now.. would've had it yesterday but some drunk --- totalled his dad's pathfinder into the pole in front of my parent's house where i work on my car and needless to say ripped the powerlines off the house and made a huge mess.. so this weekend got shot to pieces but what else is new with my luck ..lol.. this pic is from like 2 weeks ago when i laid a skimcoat of body filler over the hood to take care of the small stuff (most of it comes off when I'm done). the hood has been way more work than i thought but I'm really happy with the way it's coming out.
    here's a few pics from over the last few weeks.. the dark green filler is evercoat short hair fiberglass filler, the yellowish stuff is evercoat lightwieght body filler.

    Re: 87 CSX #175 project log

    well sorry this plog got put off for a while and slipped way back in pages but that mess that happened when some drunk kid hit the pole and ripped down the powerline to the house also ripped the power meter off the house too and broke the electrical box too.. so 2 weeks or so for that go get all sorted out sucked and that nasty cold i had lasted for almost a month then my dad got really sick for a while, actually ended up in the hospital over it too.. then the hot water heater let go.. it's like really? this is bullsh!T already.. then work wasn't going good so i went back to my old job and atleast that got my free time stable. but after way too long i was able to actually work on my car again today and got the hood just about ready for a guide coat, so I expect to actually have my hood in primer this coming week. gotta finish some body work on the doors and a couple odds and ends and be rolling soon. warm weather will be here soon enough and i got to get ready for it. I decided to just roll with my interior the way it is for now, and maybe putting the cage back in next winter depending on how the season goes..

    Re: 87 CSX #175 project log

    made more progress this weekend and i'm on the home stretch now! got the replacement doors painted and made my blends into the fenders and quarters, although come to find out because the car was almost never in the sun the paint match was dead on perfect but after doing all that prep work i said screw it i'm gonna blend it anyway..lol.. the car is almost completely water sanded so i'll finish the last quarter tomorrow and hopefully start buffing the hood. here's a couple pics of the painting, enjoy.
