After working for 16 straight days, I finally have more than a few off to get some real progress done on the car. My plan right now is to try and get most of the body sanding completed and maybe, just maybe put down some more primer. Although that may be shooting at the moon.
Anyway, I spent today working on getting all of my panels aligned and in their final place. I had already had gotten the driver side door and fender where I wanted it. That left the passenger side door and fender, hood and trunk lid. I pretty much got everything where I want it, except for the height of the hood near the cowl, a headlight bucket and one of the quarter panel extensions.
The passenger side headlight bucket has about an 1/8"-1/4" mismatch to the fender. The bucket isn't bent and I'm not sure if the fender was bent somehow? It's hard to tell on the picture since it isn't tight, bit about right in the middle is where the mismatch is.
Not the quarter panel extension gap is off about 1/4". My best guess is that I didn't double check the fitment when I installed my quarter panels, the passenger side is spot on and couldn't be any better.
If anyone has any suggestions on how to get these aligned better, I'd appreciate it.
One last picture before I tuck her in for the night!
