Did a little clean-up of the Fury! I had one of my friends (a professional detailer) use a heavy-duty cutting compound on it to get rid of some of the oxidation on the paint and bring back the color. I think he did a fantastic! You can see the difference between the hood's left side and the right side. I'll post a picture when I get a chance of what it looks like now that a lot of the color is back!
Apparently, the door latch return spring that operates the lever broke in my driver-side door. I can't get in or out of my driver's side without diving in through my window or awkwardly climbing and falling out of the window. I took off the top half of the interior panel to open the door from the mechanism itself, first with my hand and then with a screwdriver. It hurt. And, it didn't work! Looks like the seats are coming out. I have a replacement latch; I just need to get to where I can replace the one that broke.
We're facing facing a real tragedy here with my '76 Sport Fury... or maybe I'm dramatic... but, the paint on my hood and trunk is gone, and it's starting to rust. I need to know what the paint code is, the factory wrote "emerald green" underneath the hood. I have my fender tag (there's two of them), but I don't know how to decode them. Thanks in advance!
Here are the pictures of the fender tags that were in the original post. If you guys need clearer pictures, just let me know!
