    Only a few thing's left to paint. Like hood. But waiting to assemble part's and check what I have to do to the hood to make sure every thing will work like striker and hood latch. Still have to paint Miss. parts like nut's and bolt's. One hinge spring and door hinge's. So will start to cut and buff all the part's. Here is the header and the Lower Grill painted. Also the hood hinge's and one Hood hinge spring. Just to show their done. IMG_0101 (1).JPG IMG_0102 (1).JPG IMG_0103 (1).JPG IMG_0105 (1).JPG

    Thanks Guys. Still a while before putting part's on the car. Odd's and end's just to paint now. All the big pieces are done YEA!!!!!! Oh like I said the hood is left. Bummer. Got to test fit it to make any changes to the striker and hood catch. Hope it fit's well so I don't have to drill or weld any thing. Russ.

    Don’t use a gloss color cause I used a gloss black and every time I drive it on a sunny day I have to lay a towel over the dash cause of the reflection of the sun

    Here is the easiest method for restoring the interior metal, vinyl, plastic, etc parts so that they come out looking like they did when the car was brand new. First sand everything (the metal parts), then any decent primer applied that can be sanded smooth. Then apply light textured paint (from Home Depot). I have all black interior, so I used light textured black paint. It goes on very easy. You can get a perfect color match from Herbs Parts (https://www.herbsparts.com/). I got the black (purchased a dozen cans). After applying the light texture then go over everything with the Herbs product, it comes out looking and feeling exactly the way it was when brand new - absolutely zero glare. The top of the dash is difficult to paint with the windshield in place. I painted the dash when the glass was out of the car. The Herbs product can be painted on any product, from metal to vinyl to leather and so on. I painted the upper and lower pads with the same product. It does not wear off and won't crack or fade. I also painted all the plastic parts (A pillars and kick panels).

    Thanks for the input. The dash frame is out of the car still. So issue on painting it. Every thing is new going into the car. Did not have the door panels or any thing this car was stripped pretty much so in side the car. I will Keep this in mind when any thing comes up. Jww69rrpost thanks again.
    Russ.

    You are welcome Russ69Runner. Attached is a photo of the glovebox lid and lower pad section after painting with the Herbs product. The entire interior looks the same

    I replaced the original glove box in mine with an OE. Before I installed it, given that it is just cardboard, I sprayed the entire thing with a light coat of spray in bed liner... just to give it a little more rigidity.
