Weather is supposed to turn cold here in Okieland, so I warmed up the garage today in order to finish the passenger side airbag cover airbrushing.

The idea is a "Fading Flag" graphic similar to what I want on the Panel PT.

And, I am happy!
It turned out pretty darn good for an amateur airbrusher.

Panel Cruiser went to airbrush guy on Monday.
Wifie is getting irritated at me cashing checks for these things!


I will take it as my Christmas Present; as she never buys me car stuff!

I finally got the Panel Cruiser back after the third body shop iteration.
This time, they Cleared the two panels on each side where the airbrush guy did a fading, waving flag for me.

There are also a few body color curls on the front doors and rear hatch.
There is a silver metallic beltline stripe between the Deep Ocean Blue and the Flat Gray Metallic.
I 've been waiting to take some pictures outside until I got this much done.
But, the weather here is not cooperating.

I will take more picture when the weather clears.
This will have to do for now.

I picked up a used under hood chrome panel for $50 from a guy who no longer wanted it.
It was in pretty good shape.
But, to me the simple "etched" flames weren't that exciting.
So, I am going to paint the flames a Metallic Blue, to match the top body color of the panel van.

Unfortunately, temps here won't even be in the 30's until next weekend.
So, it might be a while before it's painted.

THE PT IS NOT A SNOW PLOW!!!!!

So I have not had the Panel PT back from the body shop but maybe 3 weeks, and now I have something big to fix!


We've had the 2 rounds of snow here in Okieland with a little of the problems that Texas is encountering.
But, when the main road got cleared and drying I started going out to the store.
**The problem is, It really didn't sink in to me that I had lowered the Pteazer front end!
The higher snow between the wheel tracks on my secondary street must have refrozen a little my last time out.
You know, the thick places where your street intersects a plowed street.
Sure, I heard the rubbing!
But, I DID NOT EXPECT THIS...just after the car was repainted!!!



So! Now I have just one more PT project to work on this spring.
BUT....I will repair it in a way that will rebuff even concrete parking stops!
