My original drums on my Bird

Does the car have steelies or road wheels? No drum red paint on steelies - just on "styled" wheels.

The engine ground strap (rear) was on the engine when it was painted and the terminal end was masked off....from my GTX

When I can I will have a look through your pics again.

Car looks great....I like R6!

I have been slack posting. Here are a few updates. Including cleaning the dash. Dave pointed out to me the date code on the rear end piece being very early in 68. Kind of throws out the window the theory of parts being within a 90 day window of assembly.

The image that looks like a paint spill is just that. When the rear end came out of the Evap o Rust there was a paint spill there. So I duplicated it.

I am still working on the dash, but it is cleaning up real nice. I ordered a Tic Tock Tach and once here will install that.
Thanks to A12 Pilot I have a brand new headlight vacuum line system for the headlight system. Very kind Pay Forward

Dash pics. The area of the dash below the VIN plate had a small amount of rust damage. The original windshield was in the car so I assume the seal failed allowing water to collect on this corner. I am treating it with Evap O Rust and a blue paper towel. The area is responding well. I will probably lightly sand that area and then shoot the corner with textured paint. Before I do that I am going to test it. If it looks worse with the paint I will leave well enough alone.

Woohoo! Good work Lawrence!! It'll be so rewarding when you turn that key. And if it's like me....it'll be a "click...click....click....."

Looking good man!

Cheers
Dave
