    Thankless job….welding on rear fenders..but..I try and think..”THIS COULD BE LAST ONE”…


    Next…the rear fenders and rear pan…maybe 3M


    Finished welding solid the right fender..onward


    Painted the new floors with this KBS paint Sunny A. Recommended…looks really good..on quickly. .see how it cured tomorrow.


    Painted the firewall…progress…


    Installing the rear splash pan..hard to find item!


    Pan is bolted and tacked…waiting far a SUNNY day


    Whole back of the 46 is done…imagineer Sunny Ackermann volunteered his talent to massage the steel..on to the deck lid..rounded corners.

    Filling holes in the deck…Bill DeCarr told me he was the best in Barris shop..guys would pay him 5cents a hole to fill on ther job…less warping if he did the deed


    Long haul..but..deck lid on..rounding corners


    Upon installing the deck lid..gutter rail interface causing deck not to close tight.
    Sunny solution…move the drain rail…so….


    Bottom of deck lid trimmed and welded..corners rounded…looks good…time to finish it..


    Sunny did his thing on the deck lid…lots of tweeking but..yaho..tomorrow the latex goes on.

    Interesting build, not too many new built customs that gets a channelling job. I’m sure this will be a great looking custom when finished. Thanks a lot for taking the time to share all those photos.

    Whew! Thank you Rik for moving all these images over here where those of us who don’t “do” Facebook can appreciate Barry’s labours too. I’m looking forward to seeing this one through to the end as I think the Cliff Rackohn coupe was one of the best of that era. Keep plugging away Barry it’s looking good!

    Barry the door looks as it should after all of your attention! Those skirts look to fit real well too! ..but I especially like the gravel pan at the rear ;D !

    Dave

    p.s. For those reading this the gravel pan reference is because parts found their way to Barry in Florida from a donor car here in Saskatchewan.. Gotta help get those customs done – right?

    Jus' creepin' along..
