1967 Biscayne door removal
Permalink  
 


The Biscayne is disassembled for the rotisserie minus the doors - Before I just venture out on my own - what method of removal?

I intend on painting EVERY piece I can but don't want to create a huge cluster... involving door alignment going back together. They are both gapped as "new" - fit is great, no sag etc... I want that going back! so - that being said - do I unbolt the hinges from the cowl? or drive out the hinge pins? ( going to wet blast the car - if that makes any diff in procedure...) What is the "Standard" Procedure?

I like to use an 1/8" drill and drill 2 holes on opposite corners of the hinges on the door side. I leave the hinges on the body. Upon re assembly I use 1/8 rivets in the holes to line everything up to where I had it. Some people frown at my method as you are putting holes in the hinges and doors, they don't like the look or modifications lol.
We need pictures on your progress !!

I like the way you think...i could easily drill the holes w a #30 and then at put together time, use clecos to hold it in alignment , slap the bolts back in and tig the holes shut...or seam sealer...sumn like that. Don't wanna scorch my new paint. 
Here's some pics from Sunday.( be jealous of that spare...still has the nooglie lil titty dealies on it. I wonder if its been on the ground)

More has been done since..didnt think of takin pics today!

Just about ready to separate the frame. Need an hr or so...lol

That's a spiffy looking intake. LOVE the length of those runners. What size carb are you running on it? Conventional thinking would suggest a 750, yes?

It's a Victor Jr intake and a DC Carbs 750. (David Cook)he built it per my specs. Now then if Overhaulin would show up and get busy I could drive it sooner!

 Ha, no doubt. That would take all the build fun out of it tho. Mind you, I'd only let them in if Courtney or AJ (or BOTH) were with Foose. biggrin

no..no... think about Arianny Celeste for a sec...I could def look at Arianny workin on my car. uhm WOW!
but yeah - the doing it is all part of the pride later on. I was seriously going to farm out the paint and body and just do all the chassis/ engine work myself - good friend is a legend around here in the car builder arena - but - even tho I was going to drop the body w him already on the rotisserie - we were lookin at 20k... he does nothing half way - including discounts for friends lol... so... I got this! What the heck would we do without the internet? I can tell you that between this car and the old flathead I just am finishing - without the internet and help from good folks - it'd be a miracle anything ever got out of the garage!

 Yeah, she doesn't do it for me, BUT...the rest I can agree on. There's just something one feels when they look back at the process and recall all that was done to get it to the end result.

I have worked on many cars that I tried to get to the end result, so I am still waiting to experience that feeling. I do enjoy the process tho..to an extent. biggrin
