Yeah Lea, heat has been discussed. . Problem is for painting, I'd need allot of heat.  To get that, I need forced air.  That would stir up allot of dust.  So I heat the car with the halogens, paint small areas at a time, and leave the halogens.  I am thinking of getting a couple of those vanity light bars, mounting them on a stand and filling them with heat lamp bulbs.Since there is a lack of room, I have to prep  big parts outside, 
 
The Hood will be next, then I can mount that.  Then the front fenders will be stripped and primed,  and I can edge them, hange them and paint them on the car.  I can strip the doors on the car, not the best way, but it can be done.  So I do is in little chunks at a time.  I plan on finishing the front completely and then taking the hood off again to do the motor.
 
By the way, I'm priming the car, then over coating with a god heavy filler primer, 320 that and get a glass finish.  That is if I can keep the dirt out.
 
I have a plan Stan

Heh
 
Between yesterday and today I managed to get the inside of the hood done.  Saturday, I hope, to put it back on the car.  That will get it out of the way and one more big piece prepped.
 
Well this morning, I checked the weather and it was to be in the 60's today and clear through tomorrow.  So I painted.  While I was painting, the sky started to cloud up.  I checked the weather again. . . RAIN!  I got some help just in time, but not before it got several dozen tiny drops on it.  But it's going to survive, I laid another coat on it after drying it out.  Looks like glass again.
 

 
This is an interesting spot.  When the chimps working on the car removed he hood, they broke all 4 bolts.  Then they tried to repair them, but drilled them off center taking the molded nut off the inside.  I ground the bolts down and drilled the whole area out with a 9/16 drill.  Then I took a 3/4 drill and counter sunk the hole.  I used 5/16 nits that are like washer head bolt, only solid and welded them in, penetrating down into the inner support piece.  Ground it down and whal-la.
 
 
 

 
This was taked right after it was painted.  still wet.
 

 
I didn't waste too much time on the center of the hood because it's getting a hood pad.  FACTORY PAINT JOB
 

 

 
This weekend I'm stripping the trim pieces off the front fenders, sanding and edging and getting them ready to mount.  I'll be fixing up the heater box too. 
 
I got my weather stripping and window track.  So the doors being edged will be the following project.  I keep going like this and I'll be putting the glass in by Christmas.  The goal is to have it completely painted to the rear quarters and assembled by spring.  Then I can focus on the engine and trans.  I have to turn the car around to finish the rear.
