Back Up the Hill to the Javelin

A little hardware and window stuff was all I could get this trip. If I had brought a chainsaw I would have been able to cut the tree on the passenger side and maybe cut the hinges. Oh well... at least Augie had fun jumping from roof to roof and trunk lid to trunk lid on our way back down the hill.

Good Boy!

More Mud

Suspension products - leaf springs and bushings came in Tuesday. Technically my first real new part purchase other than the windshield I bought two years ago.

Two applications of body filler felt pretty good to me but Gary, the award winning restoration guy, stopped on his way home from work and advised me that I need another pull and some serious hand sanding (20 minutes cure time) before he would be happy.

Side shot shows problems when joining Javelin roof with AMX roof (AMX roof has ridge).

Right side door needs some tapping and another full pull of filler (don't forget the tape on the center line). I can't wait...
