First up is tires, alignment, and fluid changes. Got the coolant flushed
and filled.

As to the body work, there is some deep corrosion along the top of
the rear window and and that hole it the passenger door. The
rest of the rust is superficial scuffing, mostly in the bed. What
am I looking at, $, Walt?

Exactly what happened to me this past August. A quarter mile from my house. I was very lucky to walk away from this one.



A true "cornfield meet." Glad you were OK.

But, she's been replaced with something better. This one is fully loaded, power everything. She'll get new headlights and tail lights, and switched over to LEDs. Just got back from a 350 mile round trip without trouble.

Well, Chops... Good paint materials are quite expensive but worth buying. There are some cheaper paints available . The labor is everything though. How much time and effort to get the car ready for paint. I use sandblasting for removing rust. Makes the metal chemically clean. Rust holes I cut out around the hole and make a metal replacement piece to fit in the hole and weld neatly in... I'd say using PPG primers and paint with clear coat, you'd have close to $1000 in materials... I love doing these projects! It's one of my hobbies! Love your little truck!

A friend of mine hit a deer recently. New hood was over $600.00 so he ask if I could straighten this one. Pics are b4 I ground off the front paint and added just a skim of body filler to catch any imperfection. Hard to believe how straight the hood come out in just the metal work stage... Also replaced the whole front rubber nose & grill...

Thank you, Walt, for the estimate on the body work. This gives me a
good reference point where I need to be on this project.

Chops, that Ranchero is awesome! I'd daily drive that thing as is, for a while anyway. If you end up getting the bodywork done, I'm sure we'd all love to see pics. It's been a couple years since I've had the AMC on the road, hopefully this summer.

LOL, Alex, I still remember when I got my learners permit, and how the time flew by....in a few days, I will have had my drivers license for a year.

Well, today was one of the most exciting days in my life so far, as I drove over an hour to Lancaster PA along with my Dad, where ultimately I made the decision to trade in my car for my new daily driver -- a 2011 Ford Ranger!!!! With only 34k miles, this truck is practically Mint, and is exactly what I always dreamed of driving, before I even bought my car over a year ago. The price was right, the time was right, and the truck is beyond my wildest expectations. I'm still shocked a little bit, at how amazingly my dream actually came to fruition, and I'm sure, without a shadow of a doubt, that this truck will serve me well for a long, long, long time.


I was inspired to take this photo as soon as we parked outside the dealer's office. I'm super glad I did, as after one of the owners took my car for a short drive for appraisal, it was parked in a different part of the lot, away from my soon-to-be Ranger.

Not my daily driver but a nice 1960 Studebaker Lark I am preparing paint for a friend. Lower half will be black and the center above the stainless trim will be the crazy hot race red by Ford... It's in pretty nice condition right now. I hope I am able to do this till I'm 80! What fun! The PPG Race Red is $360.. a QUART for the basecoat.
Ouch !

Yes, Jeff. Rust free car. Just a lot of leveling some less than perfect work done by the last body person. Car looked pretty good before I started. The red should make this thing look sick... Not far away from paint.... This business/hobby is why my train table gets so little attention...

Made some updates to my GT.

Added the Mach 1 chin spoiler as well as tail-lights and deck lid panel. Since my birthday is right around the corner I'm going to gift myself a set of flow-masters! After that it will be onto the suspension! The only other thing I have left to do regarding the exterior is to replace the headlights with the retro round headlights from Raxiom.

That red color looks so sick, Walt!

Busss, no unfortunately, I had to get a new plate when trading in my car, as the state of PA has a special tag for trucks, with higher registration costs as well.

Should I even ask how much paint you need for the entire car? Is it expensive because of the particular pigment used, or...? Granted, a couple grand in materials for a high quality paint job on a classic car doesn't seem too bad.

I’ll probably use 2 quarts of each color, Erik. I have both red and a black sealer to coat it with right before I paint that gives it the initial collar it will become. I like using house of Kolor Clearcoat with Hardner and reducer because it has a lot of UV Sunray protection. The clearcoat with additives cost about 350 bucks a gallon.

Ah, that's not so bad then. I figured it would have taken a gallon or so. I'm sure we'd all love to see pictures of the finished car!

Actually Erik, it is a gallon of color(s) two quarts each color. The clearcoat is also a gallon plus the hardeners and reducers. It is an expensive deal, but I spend a lot of extra time on a project to make sure it is as nice as it can be. The paint especially the black, hides nothing. I will get some pics up when painting, which I hope to about next week...

Good work is worth every penny. I'm looking forward to pictures!
