I'm obsessed with primer colors. Do you feel like the camera capture is pretty true to the appearance of the tunnel when you see it in person?

Thanks, Bill

I think the deep up in the transmission tunnel shots are the red/brown primer.

I will confirm next time I am under the car but I am fairly confident all the red you are seeing is Matador and not primer. Remember LOS cars were painted differently than NOR cars. My fathers green 68 (NOR) does have some primer but not as much in the tunnel area until you get closer to the rear axle area.

Last night I spent a few hours working on removing the black overspray off the top of the cowl and tulip areas. Word of advice, if you still have any MEK make sure you have whatever you are working on in a well ventilated area as you are gonna burn some brain cells.. I almost felt a buzz afterward and I had fans going in the garage. Either way it worked sorta well but I am going to try oven cleaner next. If you have any experience and success with spray bomb removal chime in as I am open to suggestions.

Photo 245 - Upper cowl after a few passes with MEK and a scotchbrite pad and a few with 800 grit paper.

Photo 246 - Fan shroud after cleaning. There was a ton of overspray on it and I still see spots I missed but I needed to "tap out" for the night and called it for now. Will show done done photos once I'm done done.. lol

Some progression although slow it is moving forward. Needed to continue with firewall cleaning and removal of old black spray bomb paint so I pulled the steering column, e-brake assembly and master, metering valve and distribution block for cleaning.

Photo 247 - Original e-brake assembly after removal

Photo 248 - 250 - E-brake assembly after soaking in Evaporust overnight. Also to note that the bottom tooth on the gear is also painted black as it follows the same line as the painted arm.


Next I pulled the master, metering valve and distribution block back off the car for cleaning and rebuilds.

Photo 251 - As found setup on the car.

Photo 252 - 254 - Metering valve during rebuild and after soaking in Evaporust. Date on valve is either 36 or 38. Original Bendix rubber cap over rear of valve shaft.

Photo 255 - 258 - Master will have to be sent off to be sleeved. I've used White Post in the past and will most likely use them again as the last one they did came back great and they left it unrestored as I requested. Ordered a rebuild kit for the distribution block last night and Scott (Muscle Car Research) sent me an email this morning and the kit will go out today. But everything has been cleaned and soaked in Evaporust and I stuck everything back together just to not have everything laying around to get lost or misplaced. Cast date on master is D1.

Photos 259 - 261 - Cleaned the master lid.

Received my distribution block rebuild kit from Musclecar Research a couple weeks ago and got it rebuilt. However upon installing the new seat; it failed to hold and pushed past the resting shoulder and became useless. Maybe I wasn't holding my mouth right when installing it but I pulled the new now damaged seat and reinstalled the old seat and it tightened up just like it should so that issue was corrected. Sorry I failed to get photos of the new o-rings on the piston but you get the idea as far as that goes.

Next on the multitude of things to do I decided to clean up the e-brake cable to go along with the e-brake assembly I previously cleaned.

Photos 269 - 271 - Before cleaning of e-brake cable

Photos 272 - 276 - Cable after cleaning. BTW the wet look on the cable is the RPM that hasn't dried yet.

Last thing for today was to get the kick panels cleaned up and ready to be installed once the time comes.
