Looks good Pixie.
The door panels look like they came out real nice.
Never enough time in the day to do all the things you want. Glad you found some time for your car and to share some pictures.

Since she's back in school and band all week...I'll answer for her...

We have two 318 engines in the garage.  We're putting the original one back in there. That will be plenty for her.  Maybe in the future when she's a bit more skilled at driving, she can get an upgrade like a 360.  The other 318 she is going to rebuild for her Senior Project next year.

Looks great! Wish my parents showed me how to work on cars when I was younger! Your parents are cool!


Why thank you SB72!

Post by: Rev-It-Up on October 19, 2005 - 05:28:53 PM
Well...they look good from 20 feet.  The rear ones are fine, but the front ones where we did the vinyl repair is not that fantastic.  I keep having to remind myself...this is not the challenger....we are NOT spending a fortune on this duster....she can always upgrade in the future...it's fine for a great looking driver! 
Title: Re: Update on Pixie Duster
Post by: Mr. 6pak2go on October 19, 2005 - 06:58:36 PM
yea mine was the same way!! the repairs didnt look great! but they turned out ok!! im like you im not spending a fortune on a 75 dart! lol oh by the way your challey is done! I pmed you a while back im not sure if you every repleyed or got it! but im kinda dissapointed with it the drivers side looks great but the passenger side grrrr... iv been tryn to paych it up the best i could i guess im gonna give up and mail it to you im sure your wanting bad by now lol its been what/ 6 months sorry its takin so long!! later Kevin

Hey long time no see....glad your making better progress than i am on your duster......so far....i've just gotten my stripped and thats it....i sent it to a guy 2 months a go to put quarters on and i haven't seen it since....soo yeah its takeing him awhile but i figured i'd let him do it sinceh es done it before and hes going to do it cheap so i'll just have to be patient...
Title: Re: Update on Pixie Duster
Post by: Pixie_Duster on October 20, 2005 - 09:43:34 PM
we were so blessed to find a duster that's body was it pretty decent shape. As we are stripping the car down, we're finding spots of bondo... but thats repairable. I'm just glad we are able to do almost all the work ourselves. I don't know if i could handle 2 months without any work on my car.  :( But i'm sure yours will turn out great!!
Title: Re: Update on Pixie Duster
Post by: DodgeFreak on October 23, 2005 - 10:07:13 PM
yeah waiting sucks and i could of done the quarters my self (with help of dad) but we are so swamped with our own stuff it would of took longer (i've had the quarters for about a year now) lol....have you made and more progress??  what year was it again?? mines a 74...

Well its been a while, BUT- we're about 90% done with paint on the car. We're moving along quite well with the sanding in the engine bay. After this, we'll be doing touch ups on some minor dents and stuff of that sort, and thats when she'll be ready for PAINT!!! Also my Dad and I finished taking out the floorboards today and the next step is to weld the new ones in! Many hours were spent today sanding and sandblasting. We also used an "air chisel" to get the floorboards out, and MAN! Those things are crazy to use! Well here are some pictures of todays adventure with the Pixie Duster!

~P.D. :bananasmi

Oh- and the picture of the "orbe" like room in our garage is our huge blasting cabinet for the engine bay. :clapping:

Pixie, I mentioned this to your dad a while ago, but I do have a ralley dash out of a Dodge demon.  I bought one when I was 16 and it came with an extra ralley dash in the parts box he gave me. There was also interior panels and stuff, all green though. I think the dash even had the tach. These parts are about 5000km away from me now, and I'm not sure if my brother(who I sold the car to) will let them go. But keep me in mind when the time comes and I'll see what I can do.

Looks great!  :woohoo:

All I can say is I'm impressed ! Can I ask you what really got you "into" cars.
It's not just that your " 'rents" :grinno: are into cars.
I'm a car nut, but I think my 10 year old son and 12 year old daughter could care less.
At least that's my impression.
Is it because your closer to driving age maybe?
Just curious what I can do to get 'em more interested....keep up the good work ! :thumbsup:

Boy that blasting makes me remember all the mess it made for me to clean up after blasting my engine bay. I wish more girls would get involved with the hobby as even I find great satisfaction in seeing what can be done to a Mopar if you set your mind on it and do it. You will also love what you end up with when your Duster is completed. Keep us posted on your progress.

Pix, your an inspiration to the hobby, I wished any of my four kids would have been into cars other than running around in them. Your a special young lady. Someone asked why/how you were into the hobby like you are, it may sound corny but yes having parents like you do does help, but seriously there also just has to be something "inside" that drives you on, ...........going to Carlisle dosen't hurt either  :clapping:

When you see, hear, and "feel" a Mopar and you have tears in your eyes there just has to be something more than just likeing a car..........call it what you like, to me it is a passion from within. Pixie, I beleive you have that and I hope you never loose it. You got what it takes young lady !  :bigsmile:

Post by: Pixie_Duster on January 07, 2006 - 03:11:39 PM
I really appreciate being called an inspiration. It means a lot. And the thing that got me "into" cars was I think my uncle. He had his old trucks when I was younger and we'd go to shows in Florida with him whenever we visited. I grew up around 'em and loved 'em ever since! What got me into Dusters was just the car itself.

Again, thanks for all the great comments! I'll keep you updated on whats next!

(As for today, Dad and I started to try and weld the floorboards in, but we ran out of time. Oh well! More time tomorrow! And Mom finished stripping the paint off of the hood! We're getting closer!!!)

I've been looking at your car JS...very similar.  Pixie's will have a white vinyl canopy top and white interior.  Legendary made us a white bench seat cover since they didn't come in white in 74.  We need to take that gold dash out and dye it black.  Soooo much to do!!  We will put in another bunch of hours tomorrow.

At least you've been there before and know what's involved. The light is shining at the end of the tunnel for you.

This dash had no woodgrain on it before either, or A/C for that matter. :bigsmile:

The paint code I have from sikkens is POR009 color map was 43F.
They call the color karminrot and was a 72-73 color.

In low light conditions the color looks exactly the same as FM3, but in daylight it is much lighter.
Title: Re: Update on Pixie Duster
Post by: Rev-It-Up on January 08, 2006 - 06:30:25 PM
Look at the different pinks!  Now JS27NOB's dart is a porsche color, the next two are Pink Ice's and we know they painted their's FM3, and then April's car.  Now granted lighting makes a big difference, but two of them are in direct sunlight. It looks like pink ice's is under flourescents.  I guess we're just going to have to mix up some mopar and some porsche and see how they look.

no matter what, FM3 on that duster is fitting, do you really want a Porsche color?  It is your decision, but FM3 with a clearcoat will give you nice results.

Clearly the color choice is going to be a hard decision- but I will be sure to keep you all informed on which color I choose!   :dunno: :crying:

Yesterday- My Best friend came over to help with some stuff on the car- (you may remember her from the pictures in the very beginning of this thread). She and my mom started stripping the paint off under the hood. Its a tricky piece!!

My Dad and I started welding! It was a lot of fun! Hopefully those floorboards will be in soon- (like by the end of the day!!)  :clapping: :crazy: :jumping: :swaying: :cooldancing: :woo:

Today will be a busy day-  so I better get a move on!

Wow. I've really been busy since the last time I worked on the car, and I know I promised the pictures of what we did. So Finally..... Here they are!

And- I didn't know how heavy the steering column was, and I certainly didn't expect it to be as heavy as it was! And getting the windshield out is really exciting!! And the dash is out.... So...whats left? Floor, Trunk, and yes of course...more sandblasting. Mom has taken over sandblasting for a while! She's doin great!  :clapping: :woo:

More work to be done soon! Which means more pictures!  :clapping: :woohoo:

So today was Day Two of SPRING BREAK '06: Special Car Edition!

so i know its been like two months since i posted pictures but i've been workin on her. This week we will get leaps ahead and hopefully i'll have new updates everyday!

Last week Dad took out the rusted spare tire well, and welded in the new one!!

Today, we stripped more paint, filled more holes with lead-free solder, and mom sand blasted (like she's been doing for what seems to be F O R E V E R...).

Its getting more fun as the days go by!

 :woohoo:

~P.D. :bananasmi

And there is a picture of my new bumper sticker...unfortunately i had to put it on the chevy cavalier... But i figured it fits so well in my life right now...  :swaying:

Thanks for the update PD, looking good, at this rate you will have that hot little ride out running around in no time. Gotta tell you we almost named our white Siberian Husky Pixie Duster, at least we were considering it. She is a little ripper, she won't set still and is always doing something to get into trouble. Her brothers are Hemi, Kuda and Kita. We ended up naming her Haylo. Kind of an oxy moron, in Eskimo "Hay" is snow and my wife and daughter liked Halo so I added the y and everyone is happy.
Keep up the good work Pixie, nice famly project!

its rough trying to keep my sanity through what mom calls the "dull stage".

Its been 2 hours, and the same paint spots are still there on the trunk lid. Its so annoying, but i just can't wait till we get it all finished.

Mom said before we started today that she was GOING TO FINISH THAT FIREWALL!

ha- i think she's more bored than i am.... but oh well. I have some pictures already... but i'll have some more later tonight!

~P.D.

 :bananasmi

Oh- we might have a dilema. We bought a pint of FM3 PPG paint. But the paint chip we saw looked really more like a purpley-fuschia color... we're gonna test it on something, and see what it looks like. I'll have pictures later...

Panther Pink does have a bit of a purple hue to it. It also looks very different depending on the lighting.

Check this link;

http://www.pantherpink.com/ken.htm

There are several photos of the same car in different lighting, it is a good example.

Did Mom get the firewall done yet? Or is she  :banghead:

Best of luck with it,

The week days are rough because dad has work till around dinner, and so we only get his handy work after around 8 pm. So we're gonna put in about another 2 hours or so, and then i'll have pictures.

Alaskan- thanks for that website!! I saw those pictures and thought... well that looks kinda dark, but then went back to when my mom made a "collage" of those seperate cars with similar paint colors (page 6), and the one on that challenger is almost exactly the same as the one on the car that we liked. So thanks for the verification. I feel a lot more confident now!!

Be back later with those pics!

Today was Day 3 of Spring Break '06: Special Car Edition

'Twas a long day today,
just workin in the garage.
After a hard days work,
i need a good massage!!

My fingers are black
from all that grit and grime,
but we got a lot done,
in 10 hours time.

I stripped some paint,
from the cowl,
it just peeled off,
and it wasn't that foul.

The trunk lid, though,
did not cooperate,
it just sat there
and decided to vegitate.

it made me angry
so i moved along,
to a more delightful job,
i had waited for so long!

I got to primer the trunk
with dull ebony paint,
the fumes were so strong,
they almost made me faint!

After this
we took a break,
to regain some strength
and become more awake.

We ate dinner
and watched tv
and soon got up
with much glee

Dad and I soldered several holes,
and mom sand blasted,
i'm glad we're done for the night,
'cause i wouldn't have lasted.

Tomorrow I'll wake up,
and do some more work,
Because I have to finish,
or i'll go berserk!

The End!

-P.D.

I don't know how Pixie has had more time to be on the board than I have!!  :banghead:  I FINALLY finished sandblasting the engine bay.  I never would have thought it would take so long, but there were at least 4 layers of paint and some really hard stuff like truck bedliner spray.   It was awful!  Anyway...here's my days and days and days worth of work.  The good part is, there wasn't an ounce of rust anywhere!  :clapping:

This thread is starting to make me laugh. Alaskan TA you must have way to much time on your hands but it's great for a laugh. I hope Pixie gets here Duster done for Carlisle as I've never been there but this maybe the year I go and i will want to see Pixies Duster if I make it there.

Well i certainly don't want to disappoint anyone.... I mean... especially that old lady. Did you tell her to keep her dentures...? I'm sure she'll need them!!

So i guess the "fever" means that i gotta get a move on with the Duster...

Thanks Alaskan for alll the laughs! That was great!!  :roflsmiley: :woohoo: :clapping:

Goin to get some more work done.. Sorry the pictures haven't been flowing in like I had hoped. What we've been doing lately is the same things... stripping paint.. sand blasting other parts, and just reallly boring stuff like that. But we are makin a lot of progress. Today i'll probably seam seal the trunk.... whatever that thing is called that holds the tire... and hopefully we can finish all other little jobs that are on a list... its only got like 10 things on it... but you finish that and make another one... and that means progress!  ;D

Gotta get to work!
Pixie's coming to Carlisle!!

Don't get me wrong, a lot of members here are doing some great resto jobs, but for a Dad, Mom and daughter to do this caliber of work in their home garage is just super, AND your doing super work. And ya know what, I just bet this project will be just as nicely done as the Challenger, not because it's Heather's car, but because that's obviously the way you do things. I appreciate that...............and I appreciate the Davis family.  :clapping:  :clapping:  :clapping:  :clapping:  :clapping:

I agree though, the fact that you guys are doing this all as a family, and the ammount of work you're putting into it is just amazing. If every family was like that, the world would be a peaceful happy place with lots of perfect muscle cars!  ;D

How about just PIXIE, that would be nice. Heather, have you thought of (perhaps down the "road") any personalized graphic vinyl decals? Something with "Pixie Duster" or something along such themes? With the FM3 a gold flaked stripe with the swirling "pixie dust" on the rear quarters, something along the lines of the original Gold Duster decal.  :dunno:

I like all the ideas that are comin' in. The Pixie decal will probably have to be the last thing on the car, which possibly means going to Carlisle without it. But- at least she'd be there... right?

Anyway- we're makin a lot of progress. The engine is "buttoned-up" as dad would say.  Mom and I are in the process of painting all of the interior parts black or white. We're working on the dash and pretty much the whole front console, getting it all pretty and clean.

If you haven't already, you should visit my Pixie Duster's website and check out all the new stuff thats goin on.

http://www.pixieduster.ridesthatrock.com/ 

But for now, here's some pics of the engine as she sits and waits for her installation.


ALSO- crcarch donated to the Pixie Duster a thermoquad carburetor and a high performance intake.

Thanks crcarch!!!!   :clapping:

You're very welcome!  Besides, a 2V just wouldn't do her justice.  Anything that pretty in pink demands a 4V. Can't wait to hear the Pixie Duster fire up!

...The Pixie decal will probably have to be the last thing on the car, which possibly means going to Carlisle without it.

Testors makes a decal kit for model cars that comes with software, 5X8 decal sheets and a small spray can of clear sealer so that you can make your own decals using a computer printer.  I picked up a kit at Hobby Lobby for less than $10. You might want to check it out.

Most sign shops can take any computer image and make a "Pixie" out of die cut 3M vinyl too, and in any size you like.

Best of luck with it, you are all making great progress.

Post by: RedLine on June 06, 2006 - 11:22:26 PM
Pixie Duster and Rev-it-up have been real busy these last few weeks!  The entire body is finished being sand blasted and sanded. All holes have been filled with body solder.  The floors and other rust prone areas have been covered with POR-15.  Pixie has prepped the drive shaft for paint...   The 904 trans is being rebuilt.... Several carb rebuilds are underway.  Redline has finished welding in new pegs on the roof for the vinyl trim clips.  The fenders, hood, deck lid and doors have all been sanded ready for epoxy primer.  Our home-made dust-free environment has been assembled - it will be fully utilized soon. We also made an unfortunate discovery. here are a few pics

Post by: Pixie_Duster on June 09, 2006 - 03:57:29 PM
Thank you guys for all the encouraging words!! They really mean a lot to me.

Today went from good to....well in my words..."disastrous".

The good part was that I got my Grant steering wheel today, and yesterday I got my new air filter. Things were looking up. Today, mom and I cleaned up the steering column just in time for the steering wheel to arrive. Its all painted and it was lookin good. Then we decided to work on reupholstering the seats. I was so excited.

We pulled the leather out of the box, and VOILA! A cream color was unveiled. Much to my surprise, I ask mom if she thought the color was white or cream... and she said... ehh... it looks a little cream like. So I went to get a white dyed door panel to compare, and just as we thought, the seat covers were and still are a cream color.

Mom and I then decided that the ONLY thing we could do was to dye them white with the SEM dye, because if we got them sent back and new ones sent this way- we probably wouldn't make it to carlisle.  :( So off we went to buy some cans of dye.

When we got back we took out all the seat covers to find the correct seat cover for the seat we were going to then cover (I hope that you could follow that sentence. It was really confusing). Thats when we saw that we got bucket seat covers and not front split bench seat covers.

 :'( :crying: :22yikes: :faint: :o :'( :walkaway:

*sigh* So I will keep everyone posted on what will happen about our seats. 

As Ron Burgundy once said "I'm in a glass case of emotion!"

.... Truer words were never spoken.  :iagree: There were many a times I thought I was dead in the water. You think for a day or two, and come back with plan "B". There has to be a way to get seat covers ASAP. Or buy a pair of bucket seats.  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

Well we contacted the vendor- but past 5pm--- we'll have to wait till Monday to work it out.  Honestly, when we got the box I just cracked it open a bit an pulled one of the vinyl pieces out a few inches (the back bench bottom) and it looked white in the light I was in, so just put it right back in the box and put it up in storage with the rest of the panels.  Today was a big surprise-  Im sure we'll get something going on Monday.    Anyway some more pics: 
1) Panels Rev-it-up and PixieDuster Dyed
2) Pixie's Air Cleaner
3) Pixie's VERY COOL white steering wheel

Post by: Alaskan_TA on June 27, 2006 - 11:01:50 PM
I am hoping too, but every once in a while reality pegs our hopes to a piece of cardboard with a sticky tack.  :pullinghair:

This may be one of those times.  :banghead:

As of now the Pixie Duster is a "Primer Duster" if you will, but fear not. The Davis clan is hard at work inside the cocoon, and once the caterpillar is ready to evolve it will sprout wings and leave the cocoon as the Pixie Duster. It will be brightly colored and light as a spring breeze, bearing the hopes and dreams of the Davis clan and Pixie Duster fans everywhere along with it in it's flight.

Evolving from a Primer to a Pixie is not an exact science, this could take a while. Dusters are soooooo unpredictable.  And moody. :walkaway:

That said, I offer every encouragement to the hardworking crew, and we will be ready to receive the progress reports, setbacks and all as they come. The support staff can not always be right there to help, but we are here for you in more ways than you know.

Goals and dreams seldom run by our schedules, any worthwhile goal is obtainable, dreams are meant to be followed. 

Follow your hopes and dreams kids, even if they run a little late from time to time.......

 :wow:

I'd like to say that all your messages are truly encouraging! It just makes me sad to know that it won't get done in time for Carlisle. It would have been great, but we were pushin' it even if we were done by now. But you know I think it's better this way.

Even if I finish like a week or two after Carlisle, it'll still be amazing that we finished it in less than a year! And that was truly my goal. Then i'll be able to go to shows and we will definately have lots of pictures to show of her. The process isn't done. We'll still be working strong till Carlisle, but the Duster won't be there. We might even have PINK by the end of the week and thats something to look forward to by itself.

So, thanks guys for all your ecouraging words. I hope none of you are really disappointed because you know next year is gonna be great. Cudaguy will be there and the pixie will be there. So next year is really something to look forward to.

But for now, we all can just look forward to a great vacation with MOPARS!!  :woohoo:  It's probably the best vacation ever! And to all those who can't make it this year- we'll miss you. Hopefully you'll be able to come out next year, cause I PROMISE "THE PIXIE DUSTER" will be there in 2007.

Again, thanks guys for all your kind and encouraging words. I really appreciate them! But the journey isn't anywhere near over! So- keep 'em coming. I'll need them to finish the car!  :bigsmile:

Sorry it won't be done for Carlisle but it's better not to rush it as many others have said.

You've done more in a year than I'll every get done!  You and your family should be proud, Pixie!  :thumbsup:

It's just awe inspiring seeing how the whole family is pitching in together to make this all happen!

Pixie,

  You definitely don't want to rush it. It is a long haul to Carlisle, and I'm guessing the Challenger will be on the trailer.  :grinyes: What I'm getting at is there will be a few bugs for sure to work out before you take it on a long trip. Heck, it took me 2 years to get the bugs out of my car to go to Carlisle(so I thought)  :swear: . I still had to get towed home the last 68 miles.  :eek4: Last year was the first time I didn't do any tow truck miles.  :jumping:  :bananasmi

I know the disappointment you are feeling right now. I was hoping to have the Charger ready for our show on the 9th. Even though it is now painted I still have to put in the interior and all the exterior trims plus I have some mechanical problems to iron out. I looked at the calendar and there just isn't enough time. I will say it is really encouraging though to see the colour on the Charger. I have a picture on the computer at work and when I am getting frustrated at work I look at it and my spirits are raised. Yours will be too especially when the colour of pink is on your car. Good things come to her who waits.

Nice progress even up to this point, Pixie and the gang. (hey, that sounds like a new '80s band. lol)  It kinda sucks you won't have it ready for Carlisle, but the progress you've made on it is phenomenal!!  I had been wanting to finish my Challenger up for Carlisle '07, but I seem to keep on getting bounced back another year after the reality of school comes to play.  It's best not to rush things and do it all the way you want it done the first time through.  There's always room for minor improvements along the way with it, but get it set up right and to your liking then go from there. :cheers: :wave:

While at Carlisle I made a solo pigramage to the A-body section (via the smoothie booth) to Duster Row . . . and began studying the Masters.  I studied.  And I studied.  I took the pictures below....   Standing amidst such pefection,  I closed my eyes.  It might have looked strange to those around me as my hands slowly traced in the air both the rough and smooth contours of Pixie Duster's body lines that I've come to know so well,  envisioning them in some future state as liquid glass, flowing gracefully, catching the light and reflecting back only those special hues found in FM3...   I resolved then to never surrender, never give up.  The quest for perfection must not end. . .

 :faint:

Maybe I should just get back down to the garage and get back to work -- put some more filler on there and get sanding again.

Post by: RedLine on September 27, 2006 - 05:11:33 PM
After the Guide coat, 320 sanding, pinhole filling and another 2K coat.  After the pics we showed yesterday, we applied a guide coat and using our trusty paint sticks and 320 grit, cut the 2K down to even the highs out to the lows.  I guess we probably did 1 to 2 mil leveling, since the 2 previous coats of 2K were probably 3 mil thick, and in a couple of tiny areas the size of a quarter we got into the top epoxy layer.  Then we filled the remaining pin holes, sanded that down, and we just shot another layer of 2K.  These pics are one hour dry, and before we hit it with 600.  I love the way the light hits this primer with a satin finish.

We still have the ones legendary sent us that we weren't happy with.  We'll eventually put those on ebay and try to recoup some of our money.  The seats in the pictures above were done at a local upholstery shop and they turned out beautiful.  They are really soft and the white is bright like what we were looking for.  Plus, we were able to add the black piping which adds a touch of class.

 :ylsuper: Pixie duster is looking awesome.i see you made a make shift paint both,are you running any kind of fans to suck out the overspray.say like into a furnace filter or something like that to filter it outdoors?i was thinking about doing something like that,anyone else try this?pixie duster looks like it will be ready for carlisle 2007.  :2thumbs: --dave--

Yes MP, 4 fans.  two inputs, two outputs.  We use 2x2 AC filters to trap particles.  you can adjust the fan speeds to get the right "bubble" inside.

A different center cap might be cool if possible-  we'll see what PD says if she wants something else.

Heres two more pics as of today-- wet sanding the sealer

Thanks everyone!  Your encouragement means alot.  We are working hard -- trying to keep the momentum up --   we rolled the Duster outside to look at the color in the sun and decided 3 coats of base was enough, Pixie approved the color-  so we put one coat of clear on to lock it in.  here's a few pics -- love the way clear really brings out the color!

Thanks Mopar Fanatic,  we changed the plastic out when we were finished with epoxy primer and 2K, takes 1/2 hour to repalce everything and start fresh for the color and clear.   And Total BS, you are right - we hope to get the panels on by Sunday-- the pace will pick up then for assembly.  FFF, that pink grows on you- especially when its in the sun.  Tom, imagine white top and stripe against that pink-  blacked out front grill-- cragar wheels....  :droolingbounce:

Today we rolled the Duster into the other garage so we could get started on the 6 main pieces.  Metal work and then epoxy priming

It's really not that bad when you take it step by step.  Right now they're gray, tonight they'll be yellow, tomorrow they'll be grey again and hopefully on Saturday, they'll be pink!

Side note...the other night we ordered pizza (just too tired to cook after working on the car all day). Of course the chally is outside.

On Friday night at Carlisle, tradition is to order pizza and we all sit out in the parking lot and hang out together.  So, I call pizza hut to order 10 pizzas and he gives me a price.  I divide the amount by the number of folks there and collect money to pay for the pizza.  I get to pizza hut and go to pay the bill and the guy tacks on an extra $40 to the bill saying "oh, I'm sorry, the guy taking your order didn't enter it in correctly".  I explain the situation of how I collected money based on their quote to me and that I needed those 10 pizza's for that price. He wouldn't budge.  It went back and forth about 5 minutes when he said "lady, you're wasting my time here...you have to pay the extra $40".  I asked him if he would actually choose to make a customer extremely mad, not take responsibility for his employees mistake and to eat the cost of the pizza instead of cutting me a deal for the $40.  He said "absolutley"!  So, I walked out fuming and having to find another pizza place.   :stomp: :stomp: :stomp:

Hello everyone!! Thanks for all the comments about the Pixie. I'm so glad everyone likes the color. I fall even more in love with it everytime I walk in the garage!

The past two weeks have been pretty hectic for me! Not only am I in the thick of competition season- but i've had just about everyone at my school congradulate me on my article and i've had a couple oppotunities pop up from different people around Atlanta. I can't say too much now- because all the details haven't been worked out- but when we figure it all out- we'll let you know.  :picture: :money: :crazy: :jumping: :swaying:

Anyway- I miss everyone- and i assure you- when band is over- i'll be back on a normal basis (well whenever we aren't greasin up and puttin bolts back into the Duster!) :grinno:

So- she should be coming along nicely as soon as Dad gets home from Belgium.. which is today! yay! :woohoo:

I'll be around! Hope everyone is well! Take care! God Bless!

I am building my cuda now which will be my sons when he is older and the next project will be a challenger for my daughter. Can you guess what color? I hope she will be in to cars as much as you.

If I can talk my wife into it my next mopar project will be painted pink. I love the color and think it is a stand out in a crowd of cars.

Title: Re: Update on Pixie Duster
Post by: Rev-It-Up on October 23, 2006 - 01:41:10 PM
Pixie hasn't had time to post an update...so I'll do it for her.  There's been a few new things happening since the article in the paper a few weeks ago.  We've gotten two calls. One from the owner of MAADA (Metro Atlanta Automobile Dealers Association).  He has offered his facilities and technicians for us to use for anything we need done.  We're going over Wednesday to visit the facility.  They will probably take the duster over there and finish/repaint to get a professional quality paintjob.  :clapping: They also have an airbrush artist over there so Heather will be talking with him about her "pixie" ideas.  That is very exciting for us. :grinyes:  He also invited Heather to showcase the Pixie Duster in the spring AJC Autoshow which they co-sponsor.   http://www.maada.com/ajc_autoshow.html  It's a 9 day international car show held at the Georgia World Congress Center.  Very cool stuff!   

The other call was from a guy from AutoScoop which is a TV show on CW TV (the old UPN and WB out of Atlanta).  They want to do a segment on her and the car on this Friday's (10/27) show.   They were at the Football game Friday night filming and will be following her around school Wednesay and coming to the house for pictures of the duster afterwards.  Wednesday will be a very busy day.  But that's the update.  Since we heard from MAADA, we've stopped all progress on the paint. I think we have the car at a great place for a professional to just take it over and finish...we'll let you know what happens Wednesday.   :jumping: :jumping:

....The other call was from a guy from AutoScoop which is a TV show on CW TV (the old UPN and WB out of Atlanta).  They want to do a segment on her and the car on this Friday's (10/27) show...

I've got the TiVo all set.  :popcorn:

With all that's happening, I'm willing to bet that Pixie's senior photo will have a caption saying something to the effect of, "First to be Famous".  Too Cool!  :ylsuper:

...Next thing you know Chip Foose will show up at your door and want to two-tone the Duster....

Wow!  what a day for Pixie Duster and THE Pixie Duster... both were in the spotlight, so to speak, today.   TV crew filmed at the High School and then did an interview with Heather in our garage!  Pics below of the crew setting up lights, microphones, etc and getting ready to "roll tape".  Heather has some pics from the school shoot of her doing an AP Biology Lab.  the segment air's this Friday at 10am on CWTV Auto Scoop.  Would be great if someone with the techie gee whiz stuff can get it as a Windows Media file or Mpeg we can post.  :dunno: anyone?

I've got it set to record this Friday.  The PC saves it as a MPEG file, but they're too big to post.  I'll see if I can edit it down to size using the video editing software that came with my PC.  If I can't, I'll burn it to a DVD and get it to you.

A little bit of news...but it's not good.  Talked with MAADA yesterday (they finally called us back).  They've decided they don't want to be involved anymore with the duster...they have too many things going on. So for three months they have had us waiting for an answer with all progress stopped, and they have the nerve to say..."oh, I guess that's our fault for not calling you back".   :villagers: :villagers:  So...now we need to put together another plan of attack, but we're not sure what that's gonna be yet.  :scared:

But before beating yourselves up too much about the time lost, look on the bright side. First; the family bonding will continue.
Second; You may not think so, but you'll probably do a better job, because you care about not only what's seen, but what lies beneath. And finally; You'll also be able to say, "We did absolutely EVERYTHING ourselves!"  I know that in the end it will be, JOB WELL DONE!  :2thumbs:

Sorry about them leaving you out in the dark. I would tell everyone I new in the area what happened. Something will come along and you will get it painted. Whatever happens take plenty of pictures so we can all have a look at the progress.

 :walkaway: Sadly even in Gerogia this time of year it is a bit cool and damp to start painting in your garage. It should be at least a constant 70* to do any serious paint work. That means late spring at best and that puts a preimum on time to paint and reassemble the car before Carlisle. You know anyone personally who has a paint booth/shop ? I guess the old addage............"If it sounds too good to be true..........................." Keep your head up Pixie, somehow you guys will get the Duster done and done right, ya all are a great team  :2thumbs:

Well...what goes around, comes around.  Latest article in the AJC about the Pixie Duster...

COBB COUNTY: Monkey wrench thrown into teen's car show plans

By Marcus K. Garner
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Published on: 02/11/07

Heather Davis expected to be reassembling her 1974 Panther Pink Plymouth Duster through the winter months after having finished all the painting.

But an unkept promise made by the Metro Atlanta Automobile Dealers Association to let her use its paint facilities may make it impossible for her to complete her project in time for the car shows that start in the spring.

"I'm pretty upset about where we are," Davis said. "I feel like I'll be leaving it here for my parents" when she goes away to college.

The association offered to let her use its facilities and even offered assistance and guidance with the hopes of entering the car in the AJC Auto Show in March. But she waited three months to hear any word that the association would follow through on its offer.

As a result, she missed her window of opportunity to follow her initial plan and paint the car herself at her family's makeshift painting garage. The MAADA paint facility would employ heat lamps that would speed up a drying process that otherwise would have required sunny, dry weather and 24 hours of at least 70-degree temperatures to air-dry each layer of the paint.

Heather's father, Chris Davis, said just before Thanksgiving, MAADA President Shayne Wilson said he would let the family know how the group was going to help Heather Davis. But he says no one from MAADA contacted the family, even after Chris Davis made repeated phone calls, until two weeks ago.

Wilson did not return repeated calls to his office.

Before the setback, Heather Davis was on pace to finish painting, reassembling and testing her Duster in time to make the rounds at several regional car shows in the spring. The Wheeler High School senior will graduate in May and start classes at Valdosta State College in the fall.

"I was getting discouraged waiting for [MAADA]," she said. "So finally, January comes around and it's way too cold to paint."

Chris Davis admitted that he's upset with himself for depending on MAADA, but he said he's more angry that the association disappointed his daughter.

"They could've come back after Thanksgiving and said 'we overestimated' or 'we overcommitted,' but they didn't," he said. "We could've been long done [painting] over the Thanksgiving break, but we basically stopped everything at the offer of this company."

Now, Heather Davis must wait until April at the latest to pick up where she left off. And she'll have to juggle working on the car with completing senior projects, studying for final exams and just getting the most out of her last days in high school.

"I was trying to get the car done relatively soon so that I could spend the last little bit of time I have here with friends," she said.

Sounds like the MAADA  really screwed up and then wouldn't admit to anything.   :faint:  The car will just have to wait until the weather is better and things  can get in line to be done. Sometimes things happen for a reason too.  We just don't understand most of the time.  Keep the faith..........David

You know what, this thread has taken an interesting twist.  :naughty: It wasn't a bad car to begin with, I think it sits in primer now. Any parts needed can't be that expensive for a Duster of that year, I would think. The plan was to drop a 318 in it. I know the engine was already painted and ready to go. I think the interior problems were ironed out.  :dunno:

I'm up for donating to a worthy cause.  :2thumbs:

Hello all!!

I can't believe it has been over 10 Years since I started this thread!! Just wanted to update everyone on the status of the Duster! She's about to come back to life! She's been resting for a good long time, and is ready to come out and be seen again!! We are anticipating her return in the next few weeks! She is in almost the same state she was when I went away to school! She's just about ready to be assembled, besides the body work and paint. That is the next BIG hurdle to overcome!

I hope you all will welcome me back with open arms and know that I have missed this community! We're startinng to have Carlisle on our minds!!  :woohoo: :wave:  :jumping: :crazy: :bananasmi
