MGB restoration, 7 months into a 3 month project 12-11-2015

For the past week I have been getting up at 5a.m. for the purpose of working on these videos for youtube. Glory Days Automotive Restoration has documented the restoration of this 1963 MG MGB roadster in great detail. In the beginning the customer expressed that his desires for his car, was for it to have no ripples, no waves, and no orange peel. His desire is for a near perfect paint finish, and that is our goal. Throughout the entire course of this project the customer has been adamant about the fact that the sheet metal work was done, the body work was done or at least was very close. In fact the car already had primer on it. In our original conversations it was discussed that we would start our process by block sanding the car with a 180 grit sand paper, continuing the work others had done prior to us. Unfortunately from the very first day we started working on this car. We have had to take steps backwards to rework many of the previous repairs that have been performed on this car. The purpose of this videos series is to show the viewers the amount of work that had to go into this car in order for Glory Days Automotive Restoration to deliver the laser straight finish the customer desires.

 

McPherson College C.A.R.S. club car show

On the first Saturday in May each year, McPherson college students enrolled in the automotive restoration program host a very impressive car show. This show is always something special. For me it is more of a social event because I get to see friend who I attended college with. This year was no different. Except this was the first car show that I had a car at….Well, sort of. Because it took me an hour and a half to load Kacy’s pickup on to our car trailer by myself, I was not very eager to unload the truck at the show, So I pulled the truck around to a parking lot were it was visible to those in attendance. The important part was more that Kacy and her family all got to see and enjoy the truck. Project Eugene received many complements and was major boost to my ego, now I am extremely excited to get this project through to completion.

Below are the photos I took at the car show. I do apologize, I missed a lot of the show because of talking with old friends. There were many terrific automobiles in attendance that I did not get the chance to look at.
