    With the right dies, that tool/fixture certainly looks like it could help me (if I only had one)..

    Thanks, Doug

    More than anything it takes a two handed task (hammer and punch) and makes it a one-handed operation to leave one hand free for positioning or holding the trim.


    I had a request to show more detail on the trim tool we've been using, so thought I'd share it here as well. The gentleman that made it for me advised the other day (as I had requests to see if he had more available) that he is long since retired, and anyone is more than welcome to use the details shown to make their own.

    Hi Robert,
    Yep, that does make sense now!

    Not many pictures to show on our wagon progress, the body has been blocked out and Brandon is getting some touch ups done to get ready for one final epoxy sprayout..





    Vince has been given the thankless task of media blasting some of the remaining bare steel components so we can get some painting done of piece parts on this end. The condenser mount was media blasted, epoxy used to seal the wired edge, and some Evercoat 416 added and sanded smooth to form a slight radius fillet to finish it off.. We should be priming this coming week..

    Vince has been getting all the core support parts prepped this past week, so last night was paint night, time for some epoxy primer..









    After epoxy:







    Even got some epoxy on the low-rider wagon's rear axles.

    Today Vince was doing more media blasting of additional interior pieces as well as some hand painting on the parking brake for the wagon. It had some bare steel still so he got most of that covered. The ratchet/gear was left alone as we thought the epoxy would anchor it permanently..





    Mike blocked out the pieces we primed last week, drilled some holes we'll need for the fan shroud, and got pieces hung up for the next round of epoxy primer.





    ….and please don't tell anyone you've seen her patio table in the paint booth!

    On another note, our resident shop ghost who likes to hide things has done something with the stainless trim door points. So I had put in a call to Mikey at The Stainless Shoppe. He had some original take offs in stock, and even polished them up for us. Now we have our work cut out for us in matching these!!

    Do you think she won't notice when you put the patio table back on the patio? LOL

    It had been put away for winter. I still get grief over using her carving knife out of the kitchen on seat foam!
