68 Road Runner Gets it’s Beep Beep back!!

While trying to warn a real life coyote of his ‘rapid’ approach, Bill’s 1968 Road Runner (#ProjectBeepBeep) failed to  issue the famous BeepBeep, or was that just part the car’s instinctive DNA based response to coyotes in general?

Either way Bill tackles the problem.


Here’s a shot of the horn.

Project BeepBeep 68 Road Runner – Fender Brace Repair

Welcome back to #ProjectBeepBeep, Bill’s 1968 Road Runner.  Bill has been moving long with small projects on BeepBeep and I’m try to play catch up with will all my blogging.

While going over his car with magnifying glass Bill found a crack in one of the inner fender well brace.  Over time this can cause issues.  Here’s how the fix went.



Ok, so often when you are working on a project it, recording it has to take a back seat so it doesn’t slow progress and in this case doesn’t take up extra time when a friend is lending a hand.

After the welding there was a little bit of heat damage that needed to be tended too.  Check out the wrap up of this project:

So it’s been a while since Bill started his hunt for a MOPAR.  Following along his journey and offering my 2 cents whenever he called for it was fun and finally after spending hours editing video and posting up projects, I got a chance to sit behind the wheel of BeepBeep.

Thanks Bill for the seat time – now how about handing over the keys for a spin?

 

The car is beautiful and no matter how good the camera guy is, the rare paint color has to be seen in person!!!

So grab the next  few post and see what Bill’s been up to with #ProjectBeepBeep.

Project BeepBeep – 68 RoadRunner – Body Bumpers Kit

Bill takes a look at MOPAR Body Bumper Kit for #ProjectBeepBeep and shows a common mistake made when a car is painted.

 

Bill is correct that the bumper are painted over show an oversight that might just tank the value of your car. I grew up working in my Dad’s body shop and I can tell you that the chemicals in the automotive paint back then and now, will dry out rubber parts, making them brittle and they will crack and break as they did on Project BeepBeep.

Oh, if you were wondering how BeepBeep’s seats came out after the “restuffing”   (:^O)   here’s a shot.  AWESOME.
