Damn.  The hood on this car was was laser straight and had really great paint.  However, I was tweaking the fit a bit, and I managed to put a dent in it by pushing on the top of it a bit too hard.  It was repaired and repainted, and I wasn't happy with it so..

I pulled it outside today and got started on it.

I masked the underside off..

and sanded it one last time. 

 

Planning on re-shooting it next week.  Other than repairing some very minor scratches and paint baubles, the car is mostly done in San Diego.   I want to get it home, but I enjoy hanging our with the fellows down here a couple days a week.  I need another project to continue my time down here.  Nothing to the extent of this one, though...

It's finally done.  It is much better than last time.  If I damage it putting it on the car, I'm gonna eat my gun...

Pretty much, except for interior and some very minor things..

 

I'm considering selling it so I can turn the cash into Scientology teachings..... :crying:

Seems like I re-engineer everything on this project, but DAMN I'm happy with the parking brake..

The photos don't do it any justice, but the fit and operation of the parking brake is really nice.  At full lock, the handle is just a bit lower than the seat, so no worries about climbing over it when it's set.

The custom cabling I had made is a high quality piece and fits great.  I was also able to eliminate the big clunky factory handle under the dash, and the roller pulleys under the car.  It's just one cable straight to the rear axle.   

 

I can still use my refurbished center console, too

I only have so many hours per week to work on it.  I can do it right, or I can do it quickly.  I generally go with doing stuff right if at all possible..  I'd like to take it to JCCS, but I'm not rushing to half-ass it.

 

Anytime you want to come down to the shop, you let me know.  You can see it in person.

Well shit.  My last chore on this was to touch up a chip I put in the driver's side cowl.  After MUCH trial, error, and frustration, it appears I finally have a repeatable method for blending this paint.  Gonna sand it and polish it out tomorrow.

I need to get a hold of my insurance company this week.  Going to see if I can triple the value of my coverage, then start test driving it.

As it sits today..Ready to go!

Thanks Draker.  It's been a big, LONG project.  Far from perfect, but I did most of it myself..
