Progress on the daily :-)

I made a mad dash to ole red alertís last night to pick up a few parts I wanted to install before the body goes back on the frame.

I swapped the Clutch fork and installed the z bar again... each time getting closer to stock.

I started looking at the OEM shifter Nick Morocco rebuilt recently.

The resto shop will have the hood stripes on tomorrow and may paint the bottoms of the quarters tomorrow..... they body schutzíed the rear wheel wells.

Getting closer and closer.

This is my first time :-)

I have never done most of this stuff and I love it!!!

I feel confident that I can succeed! (I have had significant periods of time when my confidence was very low.... but with tremendous support on a daily/hourly basis I have progressed)

Excited to put the body back on the frame is a ludicrous understatement!!

PS: I was able to re and re the driveshaft, trans, mount, Bell housing, fork, throw out bearing, and fork boot in a couple hours.... it took me a couple months the first time :-)

This car has not had stripes since 197-1-2-3. (Very early in life) Al ordered the car with out stripes but the dealer was not able to delete them so he picked black stripes on dark green paint. From 15 feet away you canít see them 🙂
