Walked out to the garage, opened the door and turned on the lights. Cars are still there. Turned off the lights and closed the door. Waiting on parts sucks.

Removed front bumper from mock-up, straightened out headlight buckets, which included rust removal; sorted out rings, mounted headlamps: bumber brackets sorted, mocked hideaway grilles, need to repair broken mounting "ear". PROGRESS, slow, but progress.

I realized that the previous shop had spray bombed black over rust on my front license plate bracket. So, I dragged out the blasting cabinet, stripped it to bare metal, and gave it a coat of rustoleum. After that, four coats of Plasti-Dip.

The Coronet hasn't started in two months. Turn the key and everything goes dead, like someone disconnected the battery. Wouldn't start when jumping the starter relay. Wife and I had been busy replacing the downstairs carpet with LVP (luxury vinyl plank) every weekend so the car sat. Project is now finished so today I pulled the ignition switch and bench tested it with an ohm meter for continuity. Each terminal has continuity but the resistance seemed high - over 0.1 ohm.
I pulled the key tumbler and cleaned the contact point and smeared on dielectric grease. The bottom of the ignition switch barrel and the tumbler contact point were covered in a black soot, felt like fossilized grease. After cleaning and assembling, the switch bench tested something like 0.04 ohms. Reinstalled the switch and she fired right up. I love cheap, simple fixes!
