Alright watchers.. here's what's new.. new brakelines.. exciting, huh? Actually, although 50 years old, California was good to her. the 3rd member came out for a thorough once-over.. found out the only reason the pinion was hard to turn, was because the axle bearings were junk.. the 3rd member is perfect.. a P-Case posi is in the future--when I find a decent one.. (anyone got one?) just a shot of the front before the front end starts back together.. the drivers side door had been popped at one time.. my dad was able to fix it.. the door lines up almost perfect again, and closes really nice.. rear gap area. front door gap.. nice.. passenger rear fender to door gap.. passenger fender mounted.. (FWIW-- the thought had passed to go ahead and re-blacken the fenderwells and radiator support.. but, i decided to pass until the car comes apart next year for a proper 'resto') ...closer.. and closer.. (dad spent a bit of time on the lower bumper to grill filler panel to straighten it out.. was a little tweaked.. not to mention the typically wasted lower valances--haven't got pictures of those yet..) had to order some more of these headlight adjusters.. Thanks Classic Industries (dang shipping is more than the cost of the kit!) I've still got the original T-3 Lights for it--they should all be good still, got a few at my house too just in case.. radiator mounted.. Griffon 'muscle car' unit--nice 4-row radiator.. Thanks to Summit for most of my stuff I've been getting for this girl.. Flex-a-lite 16" puller fan.. Painless thermostatic switch kits on the way for this and the trans cooler (remoted mounted Hayden unit with a fan) and, here is the big show.. New Stewart Warner gauges (made in Mexico?? yup- was looking at some old used ones, but I can trust the new ones hopefully) . Just an Oil Pressure, Water Temp, and Volt gauge. Still looking for an old Tach for mounting on the column. And the ass end.. Ordered new units from Impalas.com to include the seals, new bezels, lenses, etc. Anyone know why they didn't put a bulb holder in the center but rather just had the decklid mounted lights as mere decoration?? Still on the way is some rubber from Steel Rubber, an Optima 910 CA Red Top battery to be mounted in an old Econoline battery box in the trunk, some welding cable for the battery, and some other odds and ends.. Getting closer.. Still need a windshield.. dammit.
