Separate names with a comma.
Will, I am always amazed at the level of restoration that you do to every single project you ever work on!!!!
Me to Bob. I have to stop that. I think the mental doctors have a name for it. Julian has it to, worse than me.
I have to agree with you Will. Lol
Another week dedicated to Virgil. The front fenders, inner fenders, core support and other misc parts are now in filler primer ready to be blocked. Next week will be hood, deck lid and doors. The body shell is close. Some final work on the trunk floor, a few last repair items, body sealer and the entire bottom will be finished. Original was gray primer with overspray body color, (white), I'll resist the temptation to over restore and paint it all white.
Once we get past all that the Stub frame w/engine and trans can be bolted back and the rear axle, springs etc. go back and Virgil will be a roller, for the final time.
I maped the rear dual antenna mount area without the aid of a template. Had to guess a lot. I wouldn't recommend this for the weak of heart. LOL. Also had to map and drill the holes for the remote left mirror and mount holes for the right mirror as well.
The fenders came off a Savoy so I had to map and drill holes for the fender molding and Fury emblems.
I just spent a intense week prepping Virgil's firewall and under body for final paint.
Sanded the etch primer, sprayed a heavy coat of filler primer, sanded that. Made some final repairs. Sprayed the final white primer. Sanded that. The finish body color base/clear went on this morning.
I think my fingers are shorter now!
I'll head back up there after the Ocola show and start the final reassembly of the engine/stub frame and rear axle. this will be the 4th and final time assembling to a roller.
it's hard to believe I'm at a point where I can start assembling now.
Geeze, Wil. Amazing work. I feel like such a piker. . .
Just beautiful Will!
I can't wait to see it at Carlisle maybe.
And hope to get a ride in it.....
Nice job Will!
I’m excited for ya Will.. can’t wait for that First ride as well..
NICE! Just.of curiosity where are the the frame reinforcements for conv located? Or are they the same as the other models?
Just heavy duty torque box's Ken. All else is the same.
Your detail is impeccable, beautiful work Will.
Interesting enough, while perusing my 1966 service manual last night I found a template for a rear power antenna. There was a time early on in the restoration I though about adding option, so cool the '61 Fury had 2.
Thanks Mike. The dual antenna accessory on the 61 Plymouth were non-power. Although both are functional via a splitter.
