Ran out of daylight where I was working last night. Managed to tackthe radiator core support back together. Will weld it up and reinforce the lower portion. Screenshot_20210831-013311.jpg

Had a successful trip to John's Salvage. Not a RR hood but got a 68-69 belveder/satelite hood for $175.00 + tax. 20210910_165508.jpg
Also got fuel filler neck $25.00, inside door handle $2.50 & working 2 door window regulator $45.00.

Did you check your hood yet for fitment. Early 69 takes a 68 hood. Latter 69 is a different hood. The hood latch bar is in a different place and the hood safety latch is the same way. The one thing you would have to get from a junk yard may be the door latch and handle mech. Filler necks are new for sale. So are door handles. Classic sell new window regulator's. So are you doing a total restore or just trying to get it into a driver.

East wood sells a revert for rust. Shot it in all areas after cleaning out those with fish tape that either had a bottle wire brush on it or some jack chain. Rotated it with a drill in and out of the inner frame rails and other frame rails. Also the rockers. Was able to buy a under bedding gun with extensions wand's 360 degree tip's. Could reach into hard to reach area's but think I got most all of them covered. Just was wondering on your plan. Your making progress. It is slow and tedious work for sure. Wish you the best of luck on the project.

Very cool to save it. I save mine from the crusher. Best part, it was given to me for free. He couldn't believe anyone would want it. It must have been a parts car at one time. I am slapping it all back together and driving it as is.
