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

Looking good! Remind me - is that the original paint?

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.

Thanks! Not many comment so I'm never sure if its worth continuing the thread at times. But I just try to keep marching through all the small projects that will hopefully end with a completed major project.

Next updates are the reassembly process for the firewall components, harness, dash items etc. All in all everything is gong back together smoothly.


Photos 542 - 546 - Fuse block installed, along with gas pedal and throttle arm.

Photos 547 - 548 - Next were the Astro Vent duct work and the bezels & balls

Photos 549 - 551 - Using my Harbor Freight special da polisher I run over the dash face with some Mequiars 105 since I had previously had #7 soaked into the paint prior.

Photos 552 - 555 - Installation of the drop down brackets, pedal assembly and clutch rod along with its boot.

Photos 556 - 559 - Dimmer switch, ignition, headlight, wiper and cig lighter switches installed

Photo 560 - Shot from the outside of firewall. Also installed correct 4 rib washer nozzle hoses.



Complete steering column teardown and go through hopefully in the next couple of weeks.
