We found some bad brassing on the hood that needed to be fixed.
We torched all the brass and lead off the hood so we could replace the bad parts of the hood with good metal.
All the bad metal was cut away so it could be replaced with new metal.
Here's a picture of the hood patching we did.
We had to grind both sides smooth to make the hood look right.
Look how much better that looks compared to lead or brass.
All bad spots are gone and the hood will be ready for paint.
All the body work has been done and the frame is ready to be removed from the body.
Frame is getting prepped for some primer.
The frame is primed and ready to go.
The body is prepped and primed too.
After removing the doors and deck lid from the body it's time for body work on door jambs and trunk lip.
All the doors were hung and primed too.
We even primed the inside of the doors to prevent any rust build up from happening.
After the body and doors are all primed it is time to put the frame back together.
Koopman wanted a Cadillac 50's style breather to go on his car.
Time to install the motor in the frame.
Looks like a nice fit.
Here is a view of the motor from the front.
