Re: Update on my car and a Questions



I did clean the radiator out when I pulled it, ran water through it & I "did the twist" with water in it to get out the last little bit of crud.  Good idea to take it to the radiator shop and have them check it out, thanks for that Jim.  Some time the obvious escapes me.  The media blaster guy came today, I got a quote of $850 for the whole car, trunk, inner and outer fenders, cowl and about 1/3 of the front floor underneath.  Eric Hayes told me just to do the parts with the rust, cowl, hood, front floor, trunk and leave the body as it's easy to remove the paint.  I thought paying to have it done was easy.  He told me if they do it wrong it will warp the body from the heat of media blasting.  I forgot about that.  So I will do as he says as he is the painter.  But I'm going to have them blast the hell out of the sub frame.  I purple stuff cleaned it and pressure washed it yesterday, turned out good, but since they are coming why not.  I got the cherry picker (that thing is a monster) and stand all set up.  I just need to get some bolts for the motor to be held to the stand.  Shouldn't be too hard to find.  All in all a busy day.  

I'm so happy to be working on my car again, I thought I'd never get to play with it again.  I will rethink the por 15 stuff.  The car lasted 54 years with only minor paint removal from the sub frame.  As you guys have said if the prep is good the rest will be good.  

Thanks for the ideas and suggestions. 

Eric.

Instead of Por15 (good product, absolutely will get it on you...), I used High Temp Primer and High Temp Engine rattle can. Came out great and is durable. The key to any of it is prep!

Question first.  I seem to remember reading that a radiator can not be stored empty or dry with out it falling apart.  I've had mine out of my car and standing next to a wall in my garage for the past 3 years....I think.  So my question is have I screwed myself?  There was nothing wrong with it before....or is it just a myth that a radiator will rot sitting empty.  

Next question.....I'm taking my motor off the sub frame so I can repaint the sub frame, put in all new bushings and all that, so should I por-15 it and then just use a spray can of semi gloss to protect it?  Or should I just paint it and be done with it?

Next Question, While the motor is on the stand I'm going to replace the water pump (it's original) the intake, exhaust, carb, gaskets.  Should I also replace the oil pan gasket and front and read main seals or just leave those be?  What gaskets should I use?  A kit or just buy the ones I need?  It is not leaking anything but the gaskets are nearly 54 years old now.  I was also going to replace all the freeze plugs, since it will be easy to do.

Progress update.....

I've taken the summer off from work as it was a bit much for me anyway.  I've ripped the work room wall out the my garage so I can fit the whole car inside in one piece.  It's been in my garage but the sub frame was in my driveway.  So now I can work on the motor, sub frame, the body (cowl mostly) and then put them back together so my car will be able to move under it's own power by the end of October if not sooner. 

I had meeting with Eric Hayes today.  A very good friend and chrome repair and polisher near where I live.  We have been "discussing" the color to paint my car for years.  I told him if he was going to paint my car he could paint it the org color.  It's taken me several years to get him to agree to paint my car and he has...He's a perfectionist and does outstanding work...but he doesn't paint cars anymore but mine ;)  This is the color combo it's going to be.  This car is so elegant, sexy, pretty, bad ass and all the rest I just love it.  https://www.mecum.com/lot-detail/WA0615-215167/0/1962-Chrysler-300H-Convertible/Automatic/  

I will post some pics in the next day or two to show my progress.  Thanks guys & gals
