AMERICAN METAL PRODUCTS (AMP) CAR PROJECT

A photo album of the life and resurrection of the American Metal Products car, (or AMP CAR), built and submitted to Kaiser-Frazer in 1948, which resulted in the design and production of Kaiser's "Henry J" model. Why not learn more about Henry J. cars and the Kaiser-Frazer Owner's club? go to: http://members.tripod.com/~ben1937/kfoci.htm tw....... Update, October 22, 2005: Final painting has begun...go to last page! Update, Nov. 14, 2005 = All of the panels are painted, albeit with some really bad runs on the fenders and doors, likely due to inadequate lighting and zealous carelessness on the part of the AMPster "director." Further sanding is being done on the two rear fenders, the worst panels, and they are almost ready to be reprimed and painted again. VALUABLE LESSON: Don't try to paint more than about two panels at a time - (but have another one prepped and ready to paint in case I have too much paint left in the gun - this stuff has a short "pot life!" tjw.....CHATROOM FOR THIS PROJECT IS: - -- (Because of an insideous recurring spam advertisement, the chatroom for this site has been changed to ; http://www.theautochannel.com/cgi/chatengine?chatname=bigrigs&Submit=Go+there%21&frame=frameset ).. - June 2, 2006, Except for interior wall and door upholstery and headliner, and some horn switch troubleshooting and a few other minor details, the AMP car is done today. Further work will have to be done at a later time, as time, parts, and finances become available. It has been seven long years, and many other projects await my attention. Thanks for visiting the AMP Car Project site!!
