John,

Kinda looks as if it was hammered down for clearance of something once upon a time???

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.

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 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.

Have had somewhat of a necessary break in progress the past few weeks as I've had to stay home and keep an eye on my Mom who is slowly slipping away from us. But there has been some progress and I was able to go over today and do a bit of work on the Tomato....

Last weekend at home, I was able to get all the necessary pieces to assemble my temporary heater bypass hose...
 
 
 
 
 
and this weekend I was able to finally heat shrink the hose clamp and get the hose loosely fitted to the engine...
 
 


dry fit the driver side wheelhouse to the fender to get an idea of what hardware I need...
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 


painted the wheelhouse to fender washers...
 


blasted, wire wheeled and got the first coat of bluing on the headlight adjustment springs...
 
 
 
and cruise control mounting bracket nuts...
 

and got a coat of chassis black on the backside of the headlight buckets and grill header panel.
 


This week I'll order the necessary hardware I'll need to get the fenders, headlight buckets and header panel remounted to the car and I'll be one step closer to turning her back over to the body shop for final bodywork and paint!

Looks great man keep up the good work. I have done a couple of frame off resto's and it can get very overwhelming with all the parts getting cleaned and hardware to locate/clean. Can't wait to see it done!

Well after a short hiatus to deal with the loss of my Mom, I was able to get over to the dealership this weekend and do a little bit. I got the passenger door reinstalled and rehung both front wheelhouses and fenders....
 
 

Several loose ends to tie up before she'll be ready to head back for final bodywork and paint!

Looks awesome Joe!  Very sorry to hear about your mother.  I have been there and it's not easy.
 
What's the best way to remove the front and mount the front fenders?  Remove the fenders and wheelhouse as one unit, or separately?  I see you attached the wheelhouses before you put the fenders back on.

Vince, first thanks for your condolences. Mom lived with us so we're faced with the new norm everyday and it's still odd for her not to be around. Cry

During disassembly, I removed the fenders and left the wheelhouses in place. For the reassembly of the front sheet metal for delivery back to the body shop, on the driver side I hung the wheelhouse to the fender (loosely) and fit the assembly to the car (heavy!). On the passenger side, I fit the wheelhouse then maneuvered the fender into position (lighter but had to fight to align fender hardware).

Both ways were a chore hanging solo, but I think for final assembly, it would be preferred to hang the wheelhouse onto the fender loosely so all the fasteners into the fender can be started to alleviate alignment issues and scratching/damaging the final paint. PLUS, it's definitely a two man job!!
