  Here's a picture of the top side of the chromed bumper. This is where the rust mostly is and shows. I'll think about a fix. I tryed some steel wool in a small area. It works okay, and will be a small improvement. Probally go that route first.

  The front bumper, and the other associated front parts to be painted.

  The hardware wall to be painted. All wire brushed and ready. This is all of it so far. There will be more even after I prime/paint these. I am sure.

  Before painting the designation bags and writing will be covered.

  Here's the side that is being painted blue. Not much so far. But there will be more once I start to take the dash and inside mounting out.

  Today, after work I continued on the preping. Have the hood completed and ready for another priming. Took the front headlight houseings apart and tryed to clean them up. There are so many pressings on these, it is impossible to get into all the nooks and cranies to clean off the rust. Glad it's only surface rust on these.... I did the best I can. Chemicals and paint will need to do the rest. Found a spot in the spray booth for the houseings and the headlight holders for painting. It's getting a little crowded in there. But, still room to paint.

  I figured out a hanging arraingement, for the parts to be painted in one shot. I was hopeing to be able to hang the major parts in order to paint all in one shot. Better for the paint, and the part to be done in one shot rather than one side then the next. I made some hanging hooks that just fit right in. Nice.....

  The last picture is a interesting one. I wanted to show this. It's rare, and I bet there aren't anymore around like this... One side of the lighting on this car has the original (from the factory, is what I think) headlight bulbs. "Made for Ford". Cool huh?. Not today..... Well, thats it for today. I only have a few more parts to prep. After them, if there is time, I will start to remove some painted trim inside the car for painting. If not, whats in there gets painted this weekend. This process will take several days because of paint taking a while to dry.

  If this was regular car paint it would be dry in a 1/2 hour or so. But, RustOluem takes 4 hours to tac, and 24 to dry, and 2 weeks to cure. So, hopefully we'll be putting on coats each day, or close to it. For a few days. In the time the paint is curing or drying, I will be working on the doglegs and 1/4s. This is going to be an interesting repair.

  The little tiny portion of the hood that has these bumps. They were there when I got the car. I can not get inside to bump out, so I will have to use Bondo.

  The Bondo applied, and sanded for the primer.

Comment:
  The headlight houseing. This part of the car you can not see. It's inbeded behind all the trim and grille work on the car. These do need to be painted black. I removed all the rust I can, and used the rust inhibitor.

  The other side. There are two of these and 4 of the eye bulb cups.

Comment:
  See what I mean?. They needed some attention. Should look good when re painted.

  The houseings will need to be painted with the hardware. I will spray them first.,

Comment:
  Finally found the right placement for parts hanging for spraying. This should work out good.

  How about that?. An original working FoMoCo headlight.

  Well, well... Today I was able to put a single coat of primer on the stuff in the paint room. I missed a couple of things, and I have a few runs in the difficult areas on the underside of the hood. But, thats okay. I'll sand them out, along with a few other places. Been a while since I spray painted. I'll get the hang of it again. Primer is a good practice paint to re-learn how to spray. A lot of factors are involved. How fast your arm moves, fan of spray, how the paint is thinned.... The hood nooks and cranies, was a difficult area to paint.

  I missed one of the headlight cups, and a few sides of the hardware. I knew those hook type nuts were going to be difficult. But, all of those don't have to be show quality smooth. They won't be seen. Espically the seat springs. (Yes, they are still good). The most important thing is that stuff is protected against rust.

  I diden't have a lot of time in there before I lost my heat. Vic was outside the booth, he said I was in there painting for 2.5 hours!. Sooooo many little things to paint other than the trunk hood, hood, fenders.... Whew!. Just think I have to do it all again after I sand out all the runs.... LOL. Probally next Saturday. I'll be sanding during the week in prep. Tomorrow, I have a family function, and I won't be doing anything with the car.

  During the week I'll sand the runs, and get ready to do another coat. If all is good, I'll do a third coat. Then we'll be ready for the color. Depending on the weather depends on color and a third coat of primer. I do think there is enough of time (heat) for the second coat. But, time will tell. For today, here's some pictures...

  The trunk lid turned out nice. Needs a little bit of sanding (scuffing), and then cleaned and another coat of primer.

Comment:
  Top side of the trunk lid. This and the hood underside is the heardest to paint. Nooks and cranies.

  The hardware wall has been shot. Missed a few rows on the sides. But all is good so far. Diden't have to cover the designation bags. The part hanging to the right. Looks like a license plate. It's plastic I cut in the shape of a license plate. It will be black with "1962" stenciled on one side in the same blue color as the car... He, he, he. Should get some comments with it on the car....

  The other stuff for the car. Missed one headlight cup. Ran out of time, loosing the sun's heat.

  WOW! Look at that. One long spray session. Seems these filters need changing. I'll get new one's during the week. Get ready for the next session.
  it's almost time to get back to the car. After the stuff in the spray room is covered with primer, And, if there is time to do color.... Then it's the doglegs on the car. have to bring out the 1/4s and see where to pencil for cutting out the old doglegs, and make sure the center line is out the right size and not too far out. Almost to the point of the rear end work.

  There is a lot to remove from the rear of the car before the 1/4's go in, but, for the doglegs, I don't have to remove anything except the old dog leg areas. Then is fabrication time again. Hammering, bending, shaping. That will be happening soon I hope. For now, it's in the spray booth. Thats it for this time. See ya next time.... Chow.

  Today it started raining around 4PM. On and off. raining now at 9:30PM. Looking at the forecast for the rest of the week. Rain, with temps just below 60. Should be higher for painting.... I have some more work to do on the hood. I also have some prepping to do to the fenders before I spray another coat on everything in there. If not too cold, espically the metal I will continue on the hood. Specially, on those two little bump in's.   We'll see what temps and conditions are tomorrow after work. But, again, we are making progress. Seems every year this time. Rain, rain, rain... Okay, so, we do the waiting game. Don't want to start the doglegs until all the stuff in the room are sprayed, and sprayed with color. Till next time everyone.

  Today, I continued on the hood and the fender. The hood, I am trying to make the two dents perfectly fixed. Need more time for both. Seems to be filed okay, but I need to get the protuding correct. More time needed. The fender, I also need more time. This is because of the suns heat. By the time I get home, it's warm in there but dosent last more than a few hours until the metal gets cold. Mainly because I need to use water to clean the areas, and it's from the tap. So, more tomorrow after I get home. Pictures will follow later.
10-17-12
  Today when I came home I continued on the fenders, hood, and stuff... Remember the two inverted bumps in the hood. Fixed. And, there were also two small rust spots in the one fender. I also fixed them. They were very small, but were there. I had to make the holes a little bigger by removing the very rusted, and inverting the edges. I diden't weld in, because behind the spots are other parts of the fenders molding that really shoulden't be modifyed by heat or melted to the point of no return. So, rather than risk that, I desided to fill-patch. These holes are small enough that it's okay. You don't want to use Bondo in holes like the bottom part of the fender was to "Fill-Patch".   The hood inverts, I had to file around the curv of the inverted bump, so the Bondo has a "feather". So it is complete in both parts. The hood and the bumps. I also, prepped all of our parts for another shot of primer. Although, on the one fender I have to sand out the run (just below the crease) and sand where my shirt scraped the primer while drying. Yea, a mistake that will take a little time to fix before the next coat of primer. Not a big deal, but a stupid move. LOL.. get it?. Ha, Stupid Move?.... LOL.....

  I have the heat on in there. A space heater for a while tonight. Then probally on Saturday, I will open up the garage door and wet sand for another coat of primer. Maybe Sunday a coat of color. We shall see.... So, here's todays pictures. See ya next time.
