These hinges are quite tight too. I had them rebuilt by Willie Wilson. I'll collapse them and shoot the exposed areas again today. Once the paint is thoroughly cured, I will lube them with Deep Creep.
I had Willie rebuild the hinges on the Chevelle too and that hood goes up and own so smooth !!! It lands in the same exact place on the bumpers every time it gets closed too. Crazy how tight hinges makes such an improvement in hood alignment .

My big work yesterday was getting the park lamp and signal lamp to work in the right front of the Gran Sport. I had my brother install the NOS 4way flasher I had bought decades ago for it when he went over it a few months ago. I couldn't believe when I put them on one day with it parked in the street and the right front didn't work, crap, so the blinkers weren't working. So I got that all fixed up, it was a bad ground in the socket to the reflector, just as my brother said it would be.

I spent a few minutes out in the shop today, finally. I was out of town for a couple of weeks, so dad's '57 sat on the lift while I was gone. He and my daughter picked up the wheels/tires from the shop right after I left town. I got them on, and had my daughter ride up the lift in the car so I could check the gas sending unit connection. The gauge is barely intermittent at best. The sender is grounded well, so that's not the issue. It is getting voltage to the wire, but the gauge needle didn't budge when I grounded it. I'll have to check it better when I can actually find one of my drop lights...

Well....................I don't know if I accomplished a thing today though I worked MANY hours on that hood. l have chopped many tops, did a VW Bug in one day, start to primer, done. I don't play around, my truck's roof was lengthened and I raked the windshield posts too to get the exact look I was after. That all being said, chopping the top is like making a paper airplane next to sectioning this hood!

I had a plan, was rolling with it, now I am thinking of going back to the original plan.

I am beat out of my mind right now, ready to collapse.

Brian

Spent an astonishing amount of time trying to replace the power antenna on my DD 1993 Lexus LS400. Sheesh! Talk about overbuilt!

Not sure how guys make this rust repair look so simple? I'm trudging along with all the rust and rot on my '39 Chevy and sometimes have to take a few days off just to give myself a break!
So far I have both door drops replaced, inner and outer. Also have almost got one 1/4 panel drop done. Still have the other 1/4 panel drop, and the trunk lip to repair. Then the floors, front and rear. I'm actually looking forward to the floors after these outer panels! Getting them as close to perfect has been a real challenge, and they'll still need some All Metal filler to get close enough for skim coats.
This rust repair is no fun at all! This is actually the "good" side!



And the bad side!



1/4 panel repair patches were super spendy so I bought a 4' piece of door skin patch panel and cutting about a foot off for each side. They still needed a little tweaking to contour to the curved body, but were easy to bend.



This is what I found when I cut the lower 1/4 panels open! Somebody's Bondo repair!



Patch panel almost done today.



Outside of door tacked in.



Inside drop of the driver's door tacked in, and later welded solid.



Driver's door got a skim coat of All Metal.



Going to do the inner and outer passenger side 1/4 tomorrow and then take a break for a few days. Maybe start the engine assembly as my Howards roller cam came in the mail and I'd like to do some mechanical for awhile!

I left at 10 pm Saturday night and drove to FL to look at a house Monday morning. Drove home yesterday, 25 hours straight thru and got here at 4:30 this morning.
Time to get back on the Camaro assembly...
