Used to live up in NE Wisconsin for a couple years back in the late 90's. Yeah, it was cold for sure. Couldn't get my wife back to Texas fast enough lol.

How bad is the harness? Do you have pics? It might be easier to repair than spend the money on the new harness.

FIRST PICTURE is before picture, Since that one I removed it all off and started round two today

Well swamp A$$ weather finally Left Northern Illinois and was able to get busy on the Fiberglass hood project and make it look actually like a blind person didn't glass it in, I have several things to do to it BUT at least now it don't look half bad.
I AM ACTUALLY contemplating leaving the front Part of stinger closed I kinda like it that way now still up in arms about it though and Kevin Stroh I got the front peak looking more like it belongs instead of an afterthought ..... Have some sanding then glass bondo then more sanding sanding sanding
.
I made kinda patches over the dzus fastener holes since I removed them tomorrow I am gonna flip it over and fill the holes then Go spend the day with family Watching my Oldest Daughter trade her Diploma for an SE Title She did so good ended with a 3.5 GPA
.
I thought was a 3.2 but surprise 😮 then to Dinner with Family so that Monday I can get back on it sanding I will be sanding the top side of patch flat

Congrats on the daughter graduating with a 3.5! I bet she is stoked about getting the title to the car.

Are you working with a OEM steel hood or an aftermarket fiberglass hood?

Thank you my friend and yes she is Stoked for sure... And its a Fiberglass hood that had a Hole cut in it and why I went looking for a scoop and found the Stinger scoop for it the first attempt looked like hell and didn't like it what so ever so peeled off the Glass which was NOT AN EASY TASK to say the least grinding pilling more grinding and even more grinding then more pulling and you guessed it more grinding LOL

I flipped it earlier this morning and put JB Weld in the old dzuz fastener holes so it will dry and set to sand by tomorrow Hopefully, I am torn between re opening the front or glassing it shut with a little push in sorta

The hood will turn out great either way you go. If you keep it closed it will be one of a kind for sure. If you open it back up, you'll definitely have a recognizable hood prowling the streets.

Sell the Swivels I said get new Seats I said, Well I will dammed if that didn't open the biggest can of worms I have ever seen, The Previous Owner had Inner Outer Wheelhouse's and rear 1/4's put on by a Body shop in Derby Kansas in 2014 2015 time frame and they never put any seam sealer in to help seal the Joints.
.
Also old owner must have cut the seat bracket to change something BUT passed away sadly while working on it and cut thru the floor right next to it (its small enuf to flatten up and apply some panel bond and seal it up no biggee.
.
I will be spending my time over next few days Instead of Installing new seats I will be removing all the interior and power washing the Interior DAMM I didn't want to do that yet BUT Its apart and it needs it BADLY I filled a Half of a 32 gallon trach can with Just gravel dust Back seat insulation and Old package tray WHAT A MESS SO FAR SO GOOD NO RUST in package tray BUT found the Leak in rear window by a Previous or continued retry to seal the back window I will need to get that addressed also before all said and done

No that's a mixture of NEVER being washed and the Body Shop NOT taping a dam thing up when they sprayed filler primer and sealer on the car before I got it, Richard the Previous owner lived on a gravel road in Kansas I don't think he ever washed the car what so ever

Yea they sure did buddy but If i would not have tore it this Far I would NEVER have found the Lack luster of the Body Shop shortcomings of no sealer for the new metal So Its a Blessing in disguise for finding the Little hole from Old Owner So will be good as new showrtly

Yeah, most of the cars I've purchased that had body work done to them were a mess. Very few times you'll find repairs done "correctly". But that's what we do, we make 'em right.

Well went to reinstall the opera window after it gingerly fell out of its home LOL I was mocking up the seat I got from Nick Wellik and clipped it and it fell out to the inside of car thankfully, Anywho I clean up the glass and then got a Wild hair you know where and decided to Pull the rear window chrome I know there was a Leak there already so had to be done.
.
What I seen next made my heart fall out of chest in shear shock, Ok lets do this go grab vacuum and start fearing the worst as I say a Prayer under my breath, I vacuum the channel out yup your right I found the leak, BUT Wait Just wait a minute I am not seeing any holes yet well Ok then.
.
So I start messing with the glass and notice some of the Butyl tape has urethane squeezed between the glass and tape 2 maybe 3 time's, No at this Point if your still reading which I hope you are anyway. Now I start lifting up on the glass with my windshield tool and Low and behold and it wants to come out, WELL I WILL BE DIPPED at this time I am calling my friend
Samuelson John Cruztow ( has a yard with glass BUT doesn't have it inventoried yet)  so I know LKQ just got a Lemans of 1977 Flavor in the yard so I keep going at the glass ever so gently and Low and behold it comes Out in Perfect condition Not a chip anywhere YAY
.
NOW FOR THE REST OF THE STORY I am 2 for 2 on windshield channels THERE IS NO RUST THRU ON FRONT OR REAR WINDSHIELD CHANNEL'S  thank you for reading if you came this far I am really really happy with this esp after finding all that dirt and crap in the channel

If you go with Por-15 follow the directions to a "T". I believe its a 3 step process for it to work properly.

I dont know if the end result would outlast anything.  If it were me, Id go with these two choices.

1. Best would be dustless blast, (no soda blasting because there could be issues with contaminants if not cleaned properly when done).  Clean with mineral based wax/grease remover then clean with water based wax/grease remover.  Wipe the are with each for at least a minute or two.  Then shoot some 2k epoxy.

2.  Second choice (which I recommend in your situation) is to clean the area, wire wheel it best you can to remove as much rust as possible, then grab a red scotch brite pad and some OSPHO.  Wear gloves and glasses.  Use the pad to scrub and keep the area wet with ospho for a minute or two.  Dont let it dry it has to be kept wet.  Then get some clean water and wipe the area down real good to remove any Ospho.  Then I would shoot some 2k primer but in your case Id use some spray max 2k spray can since its a smaller area.  Spray max 2k is good stuff.  The spraymax only lasts about 3-4 days once activated.  But if you put it in the freezer when done, you can get about 2 weeks out of the can.  https://www.amazon.com/SprayMax-3680033-Rust-Cure-Primer-Aerosol/dp/B07CVPGQGF/ref=pd_lpo_2?pd_rd_i=B07CVPGQGF&th=1

BTW, the OSPHO goes a long way. If you have any left over, put it in a separate jar and use it on something else later on.
