  Hello everyone. This page is for the special events, happenings, and "Out Of The Circle" of the restoration. Although the events here are part of the restoration history, they do not directly relate to the restoration itself unless it's something that had to be built first in order to continue with the restoration.

AND, it also can be something like car shows the 62 attended. What is here is also in the LogBook pages to keep within the history line of this car. So, here's some special things of note, of interest that happened on the way to the current state this car is.

  Sonic Meet. The 62 and a 55 Fairlane. Hopefully, when I'm done mine will look as clean as Vic's. The first unoffical 62's car meet before any body work was started.

  The working table. Pinging, hammering, bending table. Will need this for making the dogleg areas, and the trunk and the fenders... Probally, in other places too... Make a nice work table also for other things to come. Heavy, and sturdy...

  My pile of the material used for Bill Boards. This will make a good spray room, booth, area.... if I do it good, I can even use it to garage the car too.

Comment:
  This is the rear of the booth. Notice the fan houseing. The air will be passing through to remove the over spray. If I had money to do it absolute correct. The floor where the car sits on should be where the air is pulled out. The whole floor should be a giant air duct. But this will work just as good. Espically with the air filters.

  The sun cover completed... Could also double as a rain cover, but, it don't have sides. The purpose is to keep me from getting sun burn, and not as hot as last summer, even though I lost weight last summer.
