Thought I'd put my 73 wagon here
« on: September 25, 2013, 07:21:28 PM »
In the welcome forums I've been posting my car, guess it should be here. It's closer to paint, maybe next week if I can finish all the dents, dings, and flaking paint. It turned out that someone, sometime must have painted this and the paint was cheap or not applied right. As I am sanding there are tons of flakes coming off. It's causing a heck of a lot of more work.

Well here's Milo!

That sucks, looks like it needs to be stripped to bare metal to do it right.

I some areas, mainly on the roof, hood and on the back of the wagon hatch on the top. The rocker panels are going to metal and the area where the paint is doing that I'll vibrate out with 80 grit and then 240 with the air grinder. I think that will get it perfect. This isn't a frame off restoration, just getting it to look new I guess or as close as I can. The Rambler is different, paint on it was good, just a lot of little dings and chips from being around in storage, for lack of a better term, and that's a pain. The Maverick needed more of all mechanical and stripped to metal and new floorboard for being in a field for 20 years.

LOL, how did I get myself into all of this ahahahaha

Another project.

http://www.fordpinto.com/fordpinto-com-welcomes-you!/hello-new-pinto-wagon-owner/30

Yeah, that's the resto of the Rambler. I have a long way to go. Motor and trans should be back next week. After that the brakes, then to a welder to cut out all the rust and finish the body work and shoot!

Maverick, total rebuild and should be back for stripping and painting in a few weeks also!

This is the car today so far, more to go but had to go food shopping! The rain gutter have rust in the, I'm thinking bondo or putty to fill it in when done.

Dave is coming to put in my door panels on Tuesday and check out the work so far. Pretty cool!

Thank you! I want it as perfect as I can get it, so taking me a LOT longer than I thought. Those spots all over the car are actually rust under the paint. I think someone painted it and never did it properly or primed it it looks like before curing the rust.

This one is a keeper. Now all of my cars are keepers :(

Well, taking your time to do it "right" the first time is better than rushing and have to do it twice...

Thanks for saying that! Just so much work on this, but it's an old timer and deserves the best I can give him :)

So it will look pretty cool when done! I can't wait, almost there now!

Thanks 74, this will be my first paint job on something this big like a car. I did my motorcycle and that was pretty darn perfect. But of course I'm worried about doing the car, so much to cover. This is going to be a single stage enamel and the Maverick two stage. The Rambler will be in Lacquer and would be the easiest since you can sand out your mistakes. I'm going to go slow on the paint though!

You're welcome, I'm sure it'll turn out great, looking forward to seeing it finished.

I'm hoping in two weeks. I am getting the Maverick back in two weeks, need that to drive while the car cures. I'm scrambling to get it completed/finished so I can have something to drive! But the Maverick needs to be sanded to metal and primed inside and out, so that has to be done before I can do the paint on the Pinto. I took on too many project cars at once, but I love everyone of them!

Thanks, I can't wait to finish it either!

The end  ::)

I'll post more later. Dave is getting me a steering wheel like he has, door handles, and some other parts.

Those black panels I had listed Dave has and will be giving them to someone for shipping.

Looking good! Dianne :)
I assume the blue 77-78 is Dave's?  nice looking car.  I have photos of my 77 I will scan and post soon.  It was Orange with Orange plaid interior, big glass sunroof and all glass hatch.  I never should of sold that car but I was young and foolish!  My Grandfather bought it for me for $500.00 as a wedding gift in 1987!  Man I miss that guy, he passed in 93, and a day does not pass that I dont think of him.

The blue is Dave's Pinto, the brown was his and I was lucky enough to get it! I'm trying to get it as close to new as I can. I had a Grabber Blue Boss 302, talk about wishing I still had that car :(

Sorry to hear about your grandfather. Post those pics :D

air shocks?????? whered you find those and do they have more?...

These were on ebay. Dave bought a pair today for 60 bucks, mine were NOS and around 55 when I got them, had to get an air kit also, while Dave's had the air kit with them!

Keep looking, they seem to turn up once in awhile. The ones I used were not for a wagon, but a 1 1/2" spacer did the trick actually and they fit like a glove after that!

So a direct bolt in for a wagon? Didn't know that. Next set I'll remember. But that's for a wagon only I guess?

Thanks,

Dianne
