    Still lovely weather here in NZ, so I dragged the bonnet outside.
    Filled the repair:



    Bare-metalled the whole bonnet:



    And gave it a couple of nice coats of Etch-primer and left it to bake in the sun:

    Nah, not my thing.
    I'm thinking the new Hyundai grey/green, but it will probably end up white.

    Boot lid:



    "I'll just give it a buzz off then a coat or two of primer." Famous last words. The lid was quite rusty but had been coated (primed?) with some white stuff that was obviously made of unobtanium or similar.
    I tried everything: DA with 60-grit discs (this worked OK of sorts but would blunt the discs almost instantly), Sander with 60 grit sheet, sander with 40 grit sheet, grinder with flap-wheel. Nothing seemed to be truly effective so I resorted to 40 grit paper on a sanding block and then using just the edge. It took about 6 hours to get it down to clean-ish metal, then I realised that these holes:



    Weren't a spoiler mount but had been drilled to pull out the dent in that area. Out with the TIG and welded them up:



    Not pretty due to the thickness of the metal etc, but sealed up none-the less.

    A quick skim of filler and it was evident that the depression in the boot was quite large. Very shallow, but large:



    So after a quick spray over with rust inhibitor it was time for a couple of coats of etch primer.



    Had I been in the US I would have trashed it in an instant and been down to NPD before it hit the scrap pile, but I'm in NZ where these things just aren't plentiful.
    I might see the logistics of replacing it after lock-down, but for now at least it's presentable.

    Same deal with the roof today.
    Rubbed out, coat of rust inhibitor, 2 coats of etch primer and 2 coats of hi-build primer.
    From this:



    To this:

    More boring bodywork, but this time with modifications!

    After stripping the wings, a few holes became evident. These ones obviously from a side-repeater light:



    And this one at the base of the wing from???? Possible a trim piece or mud flap:



    After a bit of TIGgery, grindery and beatery:





    And then a small skim of filler-y:





    At this point I'd normally blab on about etch primer, but unfortunately I've run out!
    Leaving me the last resort of Red-Oxide primer:



    This will be coated with hi-build primer once it's fully cured.

    Love it dude. I like the purple as something a bit different. If you’re looking for conversion mounts sump and headers they turn up quite often on the 429/460 page on Facebook.

    The RH wing went very similar to the LH one, except for the humungous series of holes that was the aerial mount:



    I don't know why Ford saw fit to bolt half a ton of (ugly) metal to the top of the wing just to mount the aerial. Even back in the 70's there must have been better options.
    Anyhoo, bare metal goodness:



    Followed by the usual weld, grind, red oxide and then a few coats of hi-build primer. Front end now has no side marker holes, trim holes or aerial hole:



    Apparently the weather is due to change a bit tomorrow, so the next step will be removing the doors to bare-metal & prime under cover.
