  Trim repair. Stainless steel and aluminum trim fix and buffing.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Re installing the buffed up headlight side trim. These clips were quite different from all the others.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Bumping out the dents and pings on the stainless trim. Also known as "Spears".

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Looking very good. Lots of scratches and pings, dents. I can't get to them all. Some are in places I can't get a tool in. Maybe in the future I can figure out a way to get a tool there without making more damage.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Making my own rounded trim clips. The old ones were so rusted. I can not use them.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  I used stainless screws and nuts. No rusting lines in the future.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Almost ready to snap it in place. Look on the end. That is where the homemade trim clips are.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Oh yea!. Trim looks good so far. On the rear doors. The aluminum is first, screw aluminum, then the bottom stainless, screw in also, then the top spear stainless.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  I really worked on this fin spear. It was in bad shape. Most people would look for a new one, but, time is all you need. After several days, I bumped, shaved, buffed back to almost new condition. The ripples is where it was pushed in all the way, and I can't shave no more because it's allready too thin. So, thats all we do on this area.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  The driver side is next but, not today..... There is still some prepperation to do for the driver side.

Prep For Painting 22


  It's the first of September. I was hoping to have the car painted by now. Guess my job demends more time. So, in trun, the car demands more time. It is possible to do some painting. It's not cold yet, and there is still almost a month until it really gets cold. I am saving my vacation time for painting, but I may also use it for prepping time. We shall see.

  I am soooo close. if it wasen't for the stainless and aluminum trim, the car would be well under way with painting. There is a little bit more trim to do. Plus, I still have to drill the holes for the bottom of the fender bolts. I am hoping to do that this week. I also discovered during the winter the new heater core is leaking under pressure. I have another new one to replace. The leaking one is under warranty. I will get another and put it in storage if the new one I got dosen't leak.

  I also have to tape. That will take some time, but I can also do that during the night. Might be another year. I do not want to rush. So, we continue with the buffing of the stainless that should go back on before painting.... Stay tuned, we are close. Hopefully, nothing comes up that delays the progress... See ya next time. Chow!.

  Today, we finished the fin trim and re installed the fin extension. For all 4 doors, the top stainless trim has been buffed and re installed. Still, more preporation before painting. This day off here is what was done to the 62. More to come. Stay tuned.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Thats all I can file. The stainless on the damaged area can not be shaved anymore. Too much will be removed for fear of going through. It does look good though.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  I fixed the one orniment. Re installing both orniments on each fender. They are also cleaned up. The pitting is there but not as bad. Future replacement down the road.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  The door trim has been buffed up and re installed. The video shows why we re install difficult trim before painting.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Still, a lot more stainless to go but, not now. While the car is cureing. I will do the rest of the stainless.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Nice. All the door trim is on except the post stainless. That is next. It will go on before painting.

  It's starting to get cool out for painting. There is a lot of sanding to do. Maybe I can at least get the inside painted and the roof. The rest of the body might have to wait. Only the future can tell the story. Hopefully, next day off I can get the sanding done at least for the inside... We will see... But it's getting close to no painting weather. If that happens, I can still buff the rest of the trim... But, for now, the following video is several days of work. The dash painted, the fin dash trim holes are drilled. This is where we are. See ya next time. Chow!.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Remember the old quarters?. I saved them just for this. We trim them down for the dash trim placement holes. The old 1/4 is our drilling templet.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Time to re install the fenders. trim is on because there is no access for the trim once on.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Adjusting for the spacing between the hod, cow, and femders.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  New metal on the bottom. This is where there is a hoop rising a inch or so. Mounting for the bottom part of the fender. Drilling this hole in the new fabricated metal.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Now that our templets are cut. We place them for copying the dash trim holes for mounting.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Masking the dash for painting. The cluster is outward about 1/2 inch for painting around where the cluster sits and is screwed in.
