Not much progress this week as I worked on other items out in the garage but I did start on the tail light harness now that the other harnesses are just about ready to go.

Photos 510 - 511 - Before cleaning


Photos 512 - 517 - After citrus degreaser and then soaking the sockets in evaporust as they were pretty rusty. Cloth tape will be on order soon so I can repair the pieces missing as well as the clips.

Photos 518 - 523 - The tail light harness has now been repaired and unfortunately I ended up having to retape the majority of the harness. But original sockets etc so itíll have to do.

Some progress over last weekend. For accessibility I pulled the glove box and door. While it was removed I cleaned the box. Mostly just test fitting everything to make sure I'm not missing anything and of course there are a few odds and ends I have to locate in my parts stash but overall pretty straight forward.

Photo 524 - Before starting the test fitting.

Photos 525 - 526 - Glove box removed

Photos 527 - 530 - Glove box after cleaning

Photos 531 - 532 - Heater box with core installed from the interior.

Photos 533 - 536 - Cowl ducts installed

537 - 539 - Outer heater box installed and the rest of the firewall cleaned. BTW the MEK substitute works almost as good as the original stuff so that was nice to see. Also added the wiper transmission, wiper motor, cowl panel and harness (temporary).

Last item is another Day 2 piece secured from a member here. This car originally had tow tabs (homemade) welded to the front ears of the sub and later were removed. So I felt I should at least at something similar back to the car.

Photos 540 - 541 - Tow tabs

For the most part yes. The trunk lid and part of the pass quarter was repainted due to a fender bender and the addition of the spoiler. During its disassembly (long before my time) the pass fender, lower fender extensions & lower valance were stripped and primed. I have been looking for a pair of original fenders in red to keep from repainting but unfortunately I'll most likely will have to have the fenders, extensions & lower valance will have to be painted.
