Will the painting never end!

Rad frame. Just needs cleaning, sanding and paint.

Power Steering control with fresh coat of Tremclad Rust primer.

Bumper brackets and rad frame primed. As you can see I have a Studebaker thermometer. This was made up by a club member who restores a lot of old gas pumps and other memorabilia.

Got them hanging wherever I can. Hard to see, but there are two grille and front sheet metal supports and the gas pedal linkage. I don’t mind painting smaller parts by hand as long as they are not visible. That said I did paint the top of the rad and the hood latch with POR15 epoxy paint. It can come out not too bad as long as you use a fine art hair brush and lay it on fairly thickly.

Hard to get a good shot of shiny black paint.

Bumper brackets, PS control valve and rad support all done.

Next will be the trans work.
