    ok i got the driver side door handle shaved. but i cant figure out the god damn rod that goes down to the latch and up to the lock.

    ive bent it about a million times and it always binds or jams. ive pretty much lost all my patients wiht this shit. im half tempted to use my god damn hatch solenid to pop it, i can get two more from a guy i know for reaaaaaal cheap.

    guys who did the key trick post up and get some pics or just help me out.

    umm ill get pics soon but

    update:

    today i finally sanded down the hood and primered it, also i got my spray gun all dialed in, so i couple more spots on the truck and i can get ready for paint.

    also this doesnt really pertain to body but i also finished cleaning up my frame in the engine bay, and painted it black. and got my new 2.8 mounts bolted in.

    and i got the wheel wells all cleaned up and undercoated my upper and half my lower ca's cleaned and painted silver, and the rest of my cv shalfs taken out and the end bolted back on for the rear bearings.

    not long now.

    uppppdateeeeeeeee



    i finally grew some balls and started to paint!

    nothing big just my wiper cowl. i wanted to get a feel for the paint and get my mixtures right, from what i can tell i have some orange peel, i think i have to much pressure tho. but its a shiny.

    ill get pics as soon as i get batteriers.

    and i decided to by the shaved door kit because im sick of fucking with the lock.

    i tried to make a pully system as 98inthedirt said but i failed and when it did manage to open it was hard as hell on the key so im forkin over 150 of my 350 rebuild money:(

    your paint

    hey man like what your doing keep up the good work but if you are geting alot of orange peel it is because your pressure is to low crank it up a little or because your not using the right size nozzel on the gun if you wanna hit me up on aim thechamp3103 i could help you out wit that but keep up the work man it looks great:bigthumb:

    will do man, porbably order it monday and should be a week or two.

    and sprayingsmooth, do you or anyone know what the pressure should be, right now its set at 40 psi. im thinking its more like 35.

    but the reason i was getting such a orangish peel was because i found out i actually had it set on 85 psi. i still got some tweaking to do.

    thanks for the comments.

    and as far as nozzel size i have no clue what the fucking thing has or if my dad even has any others for it.

    well if you are really shooting at 85 maby your problem is that your not getting enough paint on the panel try shooting at 25 to 30 that should put in on plenty smooth man
