    • So I had some time to fill tonight,so I worked on the Corvette
      so I threw on some filler

      I don't know how there managed to be a low spot here, but alas a bit of fill and all is good


      it's important to note that when you fill over the door seam; you should not get too distracted otherwise problems may occur


      and yes, I did cut it open in time on this side.... the otherside I was a bit late.

                I wonder how many people even know what that is anymore.... didn't Disney stop with the tickets in the 70s?

                  • I'm so used to winter mixes that I wasted about half a sheet of filler.... whoops


                    but got a few more spots done... I can really start roughing it in this week then start with the high build coats and guide coats...


                    again, this is filler work but every minute I spend on it is one minute less to completion...

                      • sanded on it a bit more, I need to order some high-build primer


                        I also need to finalize the door edges and for that I may have to get clever.... tbc

                        • time to start the car - that means I need gauges


                          wiring instructions... ugh



                          and control for the various systems


                          the first switch is to power the ignition, the column switch will turn on the non-engine functions.

                            • So I got some work done on the Corvette, however this fiberglass was jamming up my lift

                              it's a 818 kit car. it was assembled by an amateur and while it is dangerous, it also doesn't fit worth anything either.... however, this little thing is blindingly fast. It has a WRX motor in the back - making it a mid-engine car. The guy who built it bought a lot of good parts - and fortunately the builder, Factory Five (the kit builders) made it well enough that even the most amateur is safe....ish. Tighten bolts people... just sayin'

                              anyway, outside of a bit of help on that,

                              my most hated task... wiring


                              I need to have gauges to start it, since my lathe isn't done, I can't finish the rear install nor the front suspension.... so this is the task that is most ready to move forward


                              beside that, the sanding continues.

                                then work on wiring.
