Primer is sanded and cleaned twice with wax and grease remover.  Spraying black tomorrow night. I did a lot of prep work and cleaning so hopefully it will turn out real nice.

I got my original hood back from the fiberglass guru.  No plans to get it on the car right away.  It turned out very nice.  The top skin was separated from the frame and glued back together.

I used an anvil and a ball peen hammer to tighten the rivets and now the looseness in rivets and lateral movement is gone in my hood hinges.  I soaked them overnight in Super Klean and the black spray paint peeled right off and exposed some pretty nice phosphate.  I am pleased with the hinges, but I might look for a nicer hood latch since mine is a bit rusty.

I got my new engine harness installed and was able to reuse my original green connector.  I just hope everything works when I try it for the first time.  I am thinking about installing the battery and trying the lights before I install the instrument cluster and dash pad.  Not sure the best way to ground the wires that would be attached to engine block near alternator to do a test since engine isn't back yet.  Hmmm.

C clamp to chassis brackets ? It just has to be well grounded to the unibody someplace.
