The forgotten Beige 69 510 build *Pics fixed through page 8*

Recommended Posts

Some may have see my post in the 510 section about this car and a black dime I picked up. I figured I would start a build thread for this one as I will start trying to get this one back on the road first. Long story short, I found this car for sale and it's been stored in a barn since the 80's. It's got a few bruises but it's pretty rust free. The previous owner bought it and was starting to strip it to turn it into a race car. Bad news is they stripped out some of the 69 specific parts, good news is what is left is in good shape.

 

Here is the post in the 510 section:

Diamonds in the rough!

There was a little bit of surface rust hiding under the sound insulation. Overall, it's just a few spots which I'll probably wire brush and spot treat. Then paint the entire floor. Not sure of the steps I am going to take to to do this exactly.. but for the rust spots I'll probably use some POR 15.

As far as removing the sound deadening.. I didn't move it over the trans tunnel as I figured there isn't going to be any rust under there.. My plan is to treat the floors and then apply some tite seal/fat mat/peal n seal... I would probably just go over the factory deadening on the tunnel. If there is any reason I shouldn't do that.. let me know. I'm sure there is no issues under the deadening material.

Doesn't work good as a deadener or something else?

It can make your doors go thunk, but I didnt notice any difference in road noise. And that is about what my research on the topic has lead to. Also, if you ever need to remove it, get yourself a bottle vodka or something.

I would paint the entire floor with Zero rust.

A few new pictures. I picked up this seat locally. Here is what it looked like when I got it.

can't tell by your picks but do you need a door with black or stainless verticle trim for the rear door as I have 2 sets of rear doors one set has stainless the other has black

It's stainless. I'd be interested but I'm afraid shipping will be horrendous.

Are 4dr and wagon pieces the same? I really want stainless ones. Like really want.

Front doors are the same, but rear doors are different.

though since it looks like I might be parting out my 510 I can strip down the one set of doors and remove the stainless strips, but if your doors already have the stainless strip I can tell you how to remove it to transfer over.

Front doors dont have the window divider...

 

We are talking about the vertical trim between the quarter windows and door window. 68/69 is Stainless, 70+ is Black.

But you asked if the 4dr and wagon doors were the same... The rears are different regardless of year.

Actually.. Fronts differ a bit as well. There is a post on here that shows the difference. I believe the difference was the window frame height. They do fit, but the window frame is shorter. I believe the post was from Mklotz with pics and measurements to boot.

That's weird that they would be different. It only makes sense tooling wise to be the same for b-pillar forward for all 510s.

We had a goon front pass door on our 4-door and it wouldn't open when I installed a set of racks on the car.  It was just slightly taller.  Weird, but true.  Worked fine without the racks on though.

I always thought 4 door and goon doors(front) were the same, but it turns out goon doors are about 1/4 or so of an inch taller

This car is in great shape, those floor pans look awesome!  I would kill to have ones that were half as good.  Mine are so rusted, I'll be replacing all 4 sections.
