Dave's Thoughts


                                 A small movie link


Some Views of next job. This is a very nice Amphi in many ways. It has sat for a few years and needs some t.l.c. . New owner wants a color change and of course those darned rear raised lip quarters need a bit of repair. Brakes will be rebuilt, grease and lube will be done with Amsoil, raised lip will be repaired with steel bent with my bead roller to assure proper fit. The car is coming apart nicely. No real surprises A little trouble on engine cover. But all in all an excellent car.

         Paint is mostly off of car. Trial run of red inside of trunk. Just one rust hole in rear quarter.

In takes practice to get parts made the way I want them. I do not like wrinkles and "puckers".  As you can see not finished but I am very happy with fit and finish. I will be using lead for seam. This repair should last a long time.

getting close to finish line! Just more sanding and buffing!!

Not perfect but very nice. Already installed some dents and scratches from rivers and car shows.
