I finished up the manual steering box and installed it.

I threw out that piece of shit can of BoeShield! 30 bucks for an impotent can of nothing :-(

Bought Crown rust prevention spray and did the brake and fuel lines and clips and popped them all in :-) looks great.

Put the parking brake cables back together.

Ordered parts:
American Auto Wire harnesses for the front lights, engine bay, + and - battery cables. Thanks Dan V, for the tips and for the specifics from El Malo

Ordered some Fusicks items, jack sleeve, jack hook rubber pad, screw kit for the headlight area, and rubber plugs for the trunk drops.

Started to restore my rag joint.... I bought a complete spare steering box and rag joint and it is in similar condition so for now I will see how the original turns out. (I looked at repop but they look different and cost 70 USD.... I need some options.....)

The resto shop painted the bottoms of the quarters and has put the body on the hoist so they can paint the small patches where the rotisserie was bolted to the body. They are ready for Saturday.

I tried to set it up that the chassis and body combo could go straight to the exhaust shop but the Saturday timing and my inability to predict when we could drop off made this a no go.... :-( I am still thinking..... Hmm...

Got an email from Lynn Stager that she will go through thier photo albums to double check if they have any “fossil photos” (wouldn’t that be a nice touch!!!)

Today was a roaring success!!! The chassis and body are one unit again with no issues. The original owners were with us to tighten the bolts. We all headed out for lunch together as the marriage was completed in less than 2 hours including transportation to and from the resto shop. Thanks B&G Mark Burns and Brodie Gibson, and Terry Reeves tilt load guy, Shane Peter photo guy, of course Lynn and Al Stager (original owners) and last but not least Amy Weaver (She convinced me to buy the car) Life is GOOD!!

Too cool Ryan and what a great day for everyone, car included!
Congrats how much you've progressed and looking forward to seeing more pics and details.
The whole blended thing looks great from here also love how subtle the black stripes are w/ the green!

First: it was so nice to see you guys recently!!! (More often is appropriate)

Second: I am so happy with all the work you described, the paint guy did a few nice job blending old and new paint, his area has no scratches and dents... maybe I should age it to match?

I told the Stager’s you say hi yesterday.

Shane Peter thanks so much for documenting our day of returning the body to the frame yesterday. The pictures are professional and will keep these special W31 memories safe.
