Had one of those kinda dents on the montego hood. It was from someone trying to pry it open.

**CLICK ON PICS TO ENLARGE AND CLICK AGAIN TO SUPERSIZE**
 
Productive day today... got the underside of the hood
 


and deck lid coated
 

with Ospho as well as both headlight buckets,
 
 

the grill header and front bumper steel sight shield.
 

Also painted a couple brackets and pulled out the NOS C6 cooling pan I got this week...
 
 
 
 

NICE!

Next, I'll flip the hood and deck lid and coat the top sides with Ospho and start gathering up the hardware to start rehanging the sheet metal for the trip to the body shop.

**CLICK ON PICS TO ENLARGE AND CLICK AGAIN TO SUPERSIZE**
 
Last weekend, I took a little hiatus to run up to North Canton, Ohio to pick up this little filly and bring her home with me...
 
 

Made a bit more progress this weekend as I got the top side of the hood and deck lid, along with the rest (98%??) of the sheet metal, prepped with Ospho...
 
 
 
 

Now the snipe hunt begins to find all the fasteners to get the panels rehung and the Tomato off to the body shop!

i had hoped you put them in ziplock bags and wrote on them with a sharpie? some laughed at my idea but it pays dividends at a time like this!!! and keep all the bags in one big box Wink

I either ziplock and tag them or leave them threaded into the part, but I remember taking the large fender washers and bolts out as I was prepping the fenders and not too sure where I put them. Pretty sure I have already blasted them so I'll spend this weekend getting all the hardware and associated bracketry located and laid out for rehanging the sheet metal.
