its been a while and mostly I havent done much to it but Im putting the side windows back in for safe keeping and Im trying to find a material that would work for the guide blocks. the old suff just disintegrated off. the brackets are perftctly fine just need the felt type stuff...has anyone found a good replacement for that or even the same material?

The fuzzy side of stick on Velcro works pretty good. I used it on the window guides on my '58 Plymouth Fury 12 years ago and it's still good to go.

I also got the windows in and like DaveFury suggested, used the fuzzy side of some industrial Velcro for the window guides, seemed to work really well.

been working on some interior stuff, recovering the dash pad with some vacuum form able vinyl I found a few years ago

75 el camino project.  - Page 5 Imgp5021

75 el camino project.  - Page 5 Imgp5022

made my own oven box lined with aluminum foil and a turbo heater to get it to about 285 degrees, probably not hot enough but more form able

thanks, making the hot box and the vacuum table are the easy part, but finding the vinyl to use is the hard if not impossible part, I tried looking for the material again but could not find it anywhere.

switching gears my seat covers came in from car upholstery guys. I already had the seats stripped and painted with some lacquer I had sitting on the shelf came out a pretty cool blue.

75 el camino project.  - Page 5 Imgp5032

75 el camino project.  - Page 5 Imgp5033

so started with the bottom seat

75 el camino project.  - Page 5 Imgp5034

one of the backrests

75 el camino project.  - Page 5 Imgp5036

so if anyone has taken their front seat apart and knows where the screws go or if the back part of the lower seat is not supposed to be straight across that back when there is an armrest

but in my hubris of "it wont be that long I'll remember" I didn't take any pictures of the disassembly and can't remember where 2 screws go, I think they are on the bottom seat but I am also wondering if the seat was done wrong, where the arm rest sits I remember there being sewn in sections that jutted out to make room for the seat to pin in.

Im pretty sure the 2 screws goes in the bottom seat, on top af the little raised back part. One in each corner i Think. Im not 100procent sure but i belive i have seen them sitting there when you lean the backrest forward.

Looks good! I agree with Limey, pretty ingenious setup for painting panels.

Very ingenious way of supporting parts and panels. The paint looks great. Thanks for sharing these pics. Hopefully it keeps the rest of us motivated. BTW, how did your dash pad turn out???
