302 Z28 Thank you Nathan, it was expected she was 89 years old and had a host of health problems.

AutoGear Vince;

Glad to see you're getting on it, so sorry to hear that your Mom passed away.
Please accept our sincere condolences from everyone here at A.G.

302 Z28 Finally got around to doing something about my hood ding. It has been a very hectic couple of months. My mom was real sick and in a nursing home and the wife and I had to keep running back and forth when she would take a turn for the worse. She finally passed last week and we have some decent weather for the next couple of days so I am getting after it. The plan is to hang masking sheeting from the garage ceiling and make an enclosed impromptu paint booth. I am going to rebase the entire section of the hood so I do not have to mess with spot painting. So far I have sanded the area down to bare metal. I was surprised at how little the dent actually was. This shot is the first coat of primer and has not been wet sanded yet.

302 Z28 Just want to pass along a little information about my suicide door locks. When I was building the car I never could get the solenoid operated door locks to operate with the Dakota Digital door lock controller so I gave up and was just using them manually. Well since I have been moving them I decided to revisit the Dakota Digital door lock controller. Turns out the solenoids on the door locks were bad, both of them. They are made by Rocky Hinge so I emailed them and asked what new solenoids would cost. $50 plus shipping for two of them. I started searching around and went to a car stereo installation shop to see what they had. They had some but were of a different design and I wasn't sure that they would work. Returned home and got online to and found some for $5.50 each for a total of $18 plus shipping. I figure what the heck I can take a chance on them working for $18. They required drilling new mounting holes on the lock bracket but work perfectly. So if your suicide door lock solenoids ever quit working do not go to the manufacturer for replacements or even to a local stereo shop.

killeratrod glad to here Gundy did their part. I have had them for almost 20 years. never had a claim . had a friend get rear ended and they paid out almost what he had in to his 57 chevy. they sold him the car back for $1,000. every thing from the back seat forward was still good.

302 Z28 Now I just need to fill the old holes and prep them for paint.

302 Z28 This shot is of the door jamb. You can see that moving the suicide pins up six inches allows the striker to fall further in on the door jamb.

302 Z28 This shot shows were the suicide safety pins were located and the new location, a full six inches higher.

Irelands child Vince - happy to hear that Grundy stepped up - makes me feel better as I only hear from them when the new yearly bill arrives. Now, show us some pictures of the hood repair and the safety pin installation
