Rochester is about a 2 hour drive West from here on the New York State Thruway (I-90).  The Delco plant, however, has long been abandoned...

Then after applying a phosphating primer, applying a white primer inside the room as well as on the upright.

Good evening everyone, here is the rest of the work.
So after finishing the small details and sanding everything, I painted the location of the hinges so that it was painted behind the hinges when reassembled
