Glenn's 62 Parisienne Rebuild


Thought I'd start a new topic for this incase anyone wants to follow along and to help me find previous post on the topic.  The main floor pan has been in for a while, it was blasted, treated to 2 coats of POR-15 inside and out and the underside then had 2 finish coats of paint to match the body.  Pretty sure I posted this in the Lounge some time ago with photos but can do it here if need be.  The pan had to be modified by both toe kicks to make it fit but it's in and fits nice.  We are now working on the section where the spare tire goes.  The pan has a few cosmetic differences but it looks like it will fit without modifications.  The main trunk pan will need to be modified at the tail end.  Here are a few pic of the middle pan work that has been done to date.  I just bought a pneumatic planishing hammer from Princess Auto that should speed up the time to shape some of the wheel well work and give us a better finished product.

Thanks guys appreciate the comments.  Here are a couple of photos of the work we had to do to get the front pan to fit. You will see surface rust on the new metal in the left front corner. It demonstrates how quick things will rust in this part of the world. Have no fear, I glass blasted it and then it got treated with 2 coats of POR-15. The underside also had 2 coats POR-15 then 2 finish coats to match what will be the car colour, Ermine White aka Artic White.Front Floor Pan.jpgLeft Front Corner Modification.jpgPainted Underside fo Front Pan.jpg
