The 80 Volare Coupe is getting some attention
« on: April 02, 2019, 18:37:50 »

Removed the 7.25 and gas tank.
Cleaned all the areas that would be difficult to get to with the rear end in.
Pulled all the brackets and straps and now are clean and painted in rust proof paint.
Treating the surface rust areas in rust converter and painting the same color as the car.
Installing a 8.25 Sure Grip, 5 Leaf Springs with new front and rear bushings and Polyurethane
ISO pads, Police sway bar with new mounting bushings and poly end links.
I'm starting at the rear and moving to the front.
Its amazing how clean it is between the body and tank.
It will be a slow process as time permits.

Set the 8.25 up with 11" rear brakes from a Truck 8.25.
New wheel cylinders, shoes, lug studs and nuts, Axle seals and all new brake hardware.

May reuse tank but it has a small dent on the outer corner.
If the M-Body is the same, I may use one I have already cleaned and painted.

Between body and tank is in excellent condition.
I was even able to remove the pad the sits between them in one piece.
Will use it as a template for new material.

I always cringe when removing a brake line fitting that's been on there since 1980.
Removed the bump stops and exhaust hanger.

  After wire brush and elbow grease.
After some hard to get to places it will be ready for the rust converter.
No Rot just surface rust.
