I have been trying to figure out how to remove the Pontiac emblem from the hood of my '64 Tempest since it is not accessible from the back side. Does it just pry off (i.e. no hidden nuts)?

Very nice paint by the way

Phil

Hey all, thanks for the views and comments!

64Phil,

The front stud on the emblem is a stamped nut that you take off, the rear stud is pressed into a stamped insert. From the bottom of the hood you can put a little leverage on the emblem stud and the hood frame. Here is a picture I took while trying to figure it out as well:



The toughest part was getting it moving, just remember the emblem can be replaced, the hood is a bit more expensive...

Thanks very much for the detailed explanation Thor. Now I am less likely to break anything

Thor,

Your car looks great! I've been following this thread for a while, but just joined the forum. I've just been reunited with my Tempest after having it stored in my grandfather's garage for 10 years. I'm hoping to start doing some work soon. Keep up the good posts. They're inspiring me to get my hands dirty.

Thor, your car is going to look great. Great color on the hood, trunk etc. Suggestion: make sure hood is very secure when latched after your work is done. Mine has cracked a bit where the front latch is near the emblem. It could be from slight hood movement while driving. Getting repaired thru my painter's warranty.

Paint on

Hey All,

Its been a bit since I've posted. I've been progressing slowly, typically a couple steps forward then a few backward. Here's how it looks now:











I did take everyone's advice and buy a new heater core and fan since it was exposed and will save me the misery of taking it all apart again:



Carms64, thanks for the compliments, I'm glad you have found the thread enjoyable!

Dave, I'll make sure I get it clamped down, sorry to hear about the paint issue. Nice the painter is covering it though.
