  2. Hey y'all, I finally escaped from Devil's Island (where I work) and am now happily at home enjoying a brewskie and contemplating the coming week's tasks. I got to briefly say hello to the GP today as it was trucked from the mechanic to the upholsterer. The front of the car is now 2" lower than stock as God intended and no longer scraping the ground, so it's lost a little attitude but at least i can live with it if I ever come across a speed hump. So, I have a question. Upholsterer is going to fit new headlining and sail panels. Does anyone know how the sail panels actually attach to

  3. A little more progress. 17” Derale clutch fan with a shroud made from old metal shelves. Modified the stock headlight bar and custom made the headlight stands to fit the Guide 682-C headlights. Installed the tach and β€˜55 DeSoto gauges.

  4. Thanks fellas. Mine's the same, but there is definite provision for the centre of the panel to be anchored to the metal strip that screws to the inside of the pillar. After more research, it seems that the original panels have cutouts that accommodate door panel clips that slide into the panel and then snap into place into that metal strip. I'll figure it out. One more interior question: the trim that goes underneath the inside rear window: mine was never there. What goes there? I've been looking at stroker kits in anticipation of engine teardown, and there's plenty out there but Tin Indi

  7. I don't know if yours will be the same as mine bud, but mine looks like this and the chrome holds it on along with a couple of screws that go through the chrome moldings going thought the left over fabric. Not sure if its "factory correct" or not. But that how mine was before I ripped it out. There's also a piece of molding that goes on the bottom that's not installed in the picture.

  12. Lookin good bro On mine its justa piece of chrome that's actually connected to the panel bro. Unless you mean under the back glass and I misunderstood. In which case its call a package tray, its basically think cardboard with fabric over it. I can get you a picture of it to if you'd like. I like the stroker idea

  15. Those rubber brake lines need more slack than that. Have you tried to turn the wheel completely in both directions? ESP now before you make your hardlines. Might Justa be the pic, but it don't look right. Both sides. Drivers side rubber will hit the ball joint shaft for sure N cut it. That needs to be behind the A Arm and clear from hitting/rubbing on anything. Pass/side looks too short. Where are you planning to mount your proportioning valve? Should be on the frame under the booster. Not pickin ya apart buddy, trying to save ya some $$ and heartache if the brakes fail.

  16. Got some time to finish the front suspension, almost, still need to make the brake lines. Anybody else got problems with aftermarket parts that don't fit or look exactly like the originals? Had to make the sway bar bushings fit, way to tall so i had to sand them down on the belt sander at work and then the hole was to small so out comes the die grinder, checked online and apparently a common problem? anybody else? Inner tie rods/steering rods, originals came with the grease fittings on the end but the new ones that came with the car had them on the back, also a common problem i guess? th

  20. Not sure what the spray can paint is like or if it’s even the same product, but the Hammerite I have used since the early β€œ70”s is goooood sh%#! Tough as a rock and pretty much impervious to most all chemicals after it’s cured! The Hammerite I use is a brush on that you can spray, but it takes a pretty high psi to do that. Inner fender in Hammerite undercarriage in Hammerite rocker cover bracket in Hammerite you can hardly mare this paint with a hammer!

  21. Yeah, right. Can you post a pic of the product when you get around to it? It sounds like a very worthwhile substance.
