Stans buddy, Lance, turned me onto a cache of 62 parts, including a bunch of new Gary Goers stuff.  I'm chasing this stuff now.

Gary G's stuff is spot on, he started out restoring Richard Carpenter's 300s.

Thanks Tom.
 
It's a 62 Chrysler Blue.  DD1  It looks real good in the Nasson 2K Poly.  Changes color in different light.  I'm thinking a nice set of wheels with white walls will do just right.  1" white is period correct, but maybe a wider white.  That color, the white roof and a good looking set of wheels and WOW

Snotty   I forgot about that damage on the front fender, I got it all straightened out.  Miminal amount of plastic.  Other than that, I want my money back!  You said the car was never hit.  I found BONDO in the front fender and one of the body pieces in the front was a different color!  You fraud. . .

Looking good Steve.
Good idea on the hood bolts repair.
When you have 36 square feet of sheetmetal to prep and paint,it is best to pieces one at a time.
Any mistakes can be fixed with ease compared to a 6 foot run in the paint,IMO.

Boy...It must be a real treat to work with rust free sheetmetal.
I am used to working with sheetmetal---and ALL the rust IS FREE!!!

The bad news for today is I bent the hood. 
 
It seems the hinges were siezed and with very little effort, the hood bent.  I can save it, and I think I already have, but the hinges are toast.  My buddy and I worked on the hinges for an hour after that, ducking a hinge spring in the process.  But they are bent now too.  The rust just poured out when we hit them with some PB.  I am so upset. 
 

 

 

 

 
The good part of the day is I have the left front fender into prime already.  Found this black paint comes off faster by hand than with the DA Sander.  120 Grit does better than 60, but clogs too fast on the sander.  Guess I'll be working my arms.

 The Blue with the white top should have a very nice pop to it in the sun, I would go with a wider white wall IMHO

Bents and dents are still easier to fix than rust..
Chin up Steve.
Just remind yourself not to put the cart in front of the donkey.

You bring up Donkey while I watch Schrek 2.  LOL
 
I got the hood fixed.  I just came in from it.  It needs a dot, literally of Bondo on the hood now after beating it flat.  I put a slight ding in it with a bolck of wood.  But the edge is nice and straight. 
 
I have to wait for a new set of hinges now.  I'll put the hinges on one at a time with the hood in place this time.  The good thing is it looks like the hood is in perfect alignment.  Nice straight line along the cowel and it's flat.  Other than some paint damage under the hood, it will be fine.  It's hiding the paint damage that will be a PITA.
 
I hadn't oiled the hinges yet because of the painting still in progress.  I didn't want any oil for obvious reasons.
 
Irronically, the hinges are working good now.  I wonder if I can get the spring back on the one hinge. . . . .

Man that sucks Steve....I probably would have done the same thing, you just assume hinges work.  I've never seen a set seized before.  Hope the hood is salvageable.
