The back side of the right fender had plastic inserts holding the emblem on
Got the majority of the undercoating off of the passenger side inner fender Found a few surprises
Is there anyone who rebuilds the hood hinges I haven't been able to find new ones
Is this the section I need from AMD to repair the area with the large hole It looks like it is one piece on the car
looks right, but unless you are changing the inner fender, I would probably just patch the hole with a scrap of metal.
I have to rebuild the upper section also I have a huge piece of 20 gauge sheet metal I'm going to start rebuilding the front sheet metal of the car next week. First item is the lower radiator support.
Started to tear the engine down to see how bad it really is. Found a torn up cam bearing. Damage to no 5 and no 8 connecting rod bearings. A small chip in a crank connecting rod journal. The oil pump has some damage to it. Only 5 of the lifters had the plungers that worked. The rest I had to take a punch and drive the plungers down so I could use the removal tool to get them out.
If the engine was original to the car I would see if the block could be saved. I got lucky today AMD still has fenders so I ordered up a right front fender. I won't have to mess with that rusty right side one now. Looks like metal also got into the main bearings. The number 3 and 4 main bearings got tore up a little bit. Number 3 cap bearing just outside of the oil groove is messed up and the number 4 main cap bearing has been damaged also. Just got the crank out found slivers of metal on the main bearings on the engine side. I'm thinking this metal and damage came from the poor welds that someone did inside the oil pan. When the welds broke the little pieces were sucked up in the oil pump and caused the damage I found. The carbon and the issues in the cylinder walls are separate issues from the other damage. What are your opinions?
The block is going to the scrap yard. The crankshaft I'm not sure if that could be saved or not
Removing more of that crap that is covering the floor. I'm just going to get the crap off of the perimeter of the floor pan and where the floor is welded to the floor supports and crossmembers. Got an old Airtex fuel pump that was screwed to the floor removed. Question does the floor over lap the sheetmetal piece that goes under the rear seat? There is a seam under the car just in front of the rear frame rails. Is that the under the rear seat piece that the passenger floor is spot welded to? The floor looks like it is welded on top of it
While uncovering the spot welds for the floor and removing the seam sealer I found that the passenger side floorboard sits a good 3/8 of an inch above the firewall in the corner. It is still spot welded on that side It appears that the seam sealer was used to not only fill in the seam but to fill in the gap between the floor and the firewall. The passenger side floor pan is spot welded from the floor pan to the firewall below the seam and on the drivers side is spot welded from the firewall to the floor above the seam Still have to uncover the spot welds on the trans tunnel and on either side of the tunnel.
Looks like it used to be deep sherwood metallic.
Fender tag is G 8 with A 1 G 6 interior Metal part of Dash is listed as just Green
yup, G8 is Deep Sherwood Metallic!
Once I get a small shelter up I will move the Coronet into the shelter and move the Duster in the Garage. I will pickup one of those shelters from Harbor Freight
Uncovering the spot welds for the floor/ bench seat supports on the drivers side. More body filler in the floor. Where can I get the wire holders that are attached to the floor that hold the wire harnesses down
Don't know if anyone sells them. A piece of sheet metal and Plasti-Dip the ends...
Sherwood is a beautiful color when fresh and shiny, my moms Imperial is that color.
These are pictures of the area under the rear seat and side panels. Is this goo seam sealer? Also in the pictures there are 2 small holes one on each side under the rear seat area. Does anyone know what those holes are for? It appears that I will have to remove the side vent window to get the old floor pan out and the new one in.
The goo is seam sealer, not sure about the holes.
Pic is a little close for perspective, but I think you are looking at the bolt hole for the seat back
And yes, the gobs of gooey gunk is seam sealer. They laid that stuff in heavy.
Thanks guys/Gals I appreciate it. Got the trans out today since my son was off he helped me remove it from the car. Someone used a piece of rubber as a gasket between the tailshaft and trans housing The floor came today also
