Sand blasted and painted some parts for mechanical assembly today.
The heat riser on the intake manifold was plugged with carbon…I busted it loose with a cable chucked in a drill.ColeBModeratorMay 24, 2022 at 8:09 amPost count: 2626

I finished polishing aprons, front fenders and front quarter panels yesterday. Every square inch of the external surface. Its a lot of work…but less than doing a paint job.
I assembled the transaxle and prepped for installed after that.John JonesModeratorMay 25, 2022 at 8:35 amPost count: 11184FranzParticipantMay 26, 2022 at 9:30 amPost count: 5386
Installed transaxle, adjusted/bleed brakes, cleaned the tarboard, adjusted hinges, and had to weld the hood striker back together.
Going to stack the engine tin next and get this machine running.FranzParticipantMay 27, 2022 at 10:19 pmPost count: 5386
We had a nicer rear bumper in our stash. I polished both the front and rear bumpers, along with cleaning all the OG paint brackets and hardware. Looking stellar! Engine assembly/install to go. I hope to be driving early next week.John JonesModeratorMay 28, 2022 at 7:07 amPost count: 11184
Them bumpers look sweet!!! and are OG as it gets!! That’s valuable to me!!! Better than any new “china” bumper…!! Nice Franz!! He cares…. Thats why he spends the time to find a NICER OG unit when he could have put the worse unit on and kept rolling…
Restoration and Preservation!!!

I think a new front windshield gasket with the trim in it would really add to this one.

Yeah, I want to do the windshield trim too….but need to finish up the original scope of the project and see where we are at.
I cleaned all of the engine tin and stacked the Painter’s Grinding rebuilt longblock yesterday. That is original paint engine tin!
