    Thanks for the help guys. This really helps. This little tab is missing from the spacer piece. I would think it helps hold the hinge up and tighter in the retainer?[​IMG]

    Wow, how did I miss this thread? VERY nice work, the shots of the body on the chassis look spot on, thanks for sharing.

    It is. Anvil is the name of the color. I've never been one to name a vehicle, but this one will appropriately be called
    'Anvil'

    The Fisher tag was one of very few items that remained on the first body.
    It's a small move but a cool little detail. [​IMG]
    On the topic of things that were missing, would this style Chevy window rubber come with or without a lip on the outside? I'm getting ready to buy the rubber needed from I&I

    The description for I&I has a choice with or without the lip according to what style Chevy you have. This ad is from Steele rubber. I would think the lip would obviously help seal better? Just want to make sure. [​IMG]

    And it gets tricky with the the front windshield area. The dash panel, windshield/rubber, wind lace/material and headliner all need to go in at the same time.
    Which makes it difficult to put in steering, wiring and gauges ect? I'm thinking about making disconnect terminals for gauges and electrical and move dash back as needed for interior and glass install? Boohoo, huh?

  17. i was able to pull the windshield without removing the dash, as a matter of fact the windshield hides the screw to remove the dash. the windlace gets held by the garnish molding and the head liner on my car sits well above the garnish moulding. there is a filler/header panel that was attached with velcro so access to the wiper motor can be easy.

    Hey guys I was looking back in some previous pictures trying to see how your cowl lacing attached? Looks like rivets in this pic.
    I have these but can't quite remember if it originally held the lacing? Do they look familiar to anyone?[​IMG]
    I have the j-hooks also. I did a search and found where 33anda3rd posted about it also being retained with wire? Any pics are welcome. Thanks guys

  20. Those parts don't look familiar to me. My lacing was originally held in with wire. I'm not sure if I have any pics but I'll try to look tomorrow.

  21. I'm the worst for not documenting with pics as I disassemble stuff - plus my memory is not so good anymore...:D

    Not sure about the upper pieces but the bottom piece looks to be the piece that goes over the split on the inside window garnish moldings. (see attached pic) As far as the wire, I used small rivets to secure mine.

    These pics really help, I also see on the radiator support rods that bolt in the cowl there's a gasket or grommet. This is something I didn't know I needed.
    But makes sense

    Thanks for the help and comments guys. (Especially the Chevrolet support)

    Getting ready to stack out the doors. I felt like the doors need a little more sound deadening . I've used this material on other projects with no issues. And I've never smelled it once glued in place

    Its roofing material, it goes in the valleys of a roof. Very sticky. It's .050 thick. I use 3 pieces making it .150 when it's all applied. And my buddy gives it to me. I think it's about a $100 a roll. I also use spray adhesive on both sides to the door. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    I try to save $ where I can. It all adds up in the end

  28. Like how understated the color and car is. Sometimes less is more and this has it in spades.

    I've been working with the rear of the car, mocking up the rear bumper. And comparing it to the original look of the car with a spare tire covering the rear panel. Thinking there was a lot of space I started to think what I could do to kinda fill it up?
    [​IMG]
    And found pictures of some rear bumper mount racks
    [​IMG]
    I found a section of a rack from something, and played around with it then added some stainless stock that I polished out. Ornamental but functional [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
