Lots of progress this weekend.

Horns restored and installed.
Rad side tanks painted gloss black, side seals installed, rad installed, top plate installed.
Inner and outer heater boxes installed.
Grilles, headlight doors, cleaned ready to install, they may be too Patina.... TBD.
Inner fenders are yet another step closer, I cleaned them again and again..
Front bumper cleaned, back side ground down and painted dull Aluminum. (I accidentally ran the 4 inch wire wheel over my wrist when it kicked back... 5K RPM had to get big bandaids at Shoppers :-( a boo boo on the dumb dumb. Not a deep cut but the outline of the grinding wheel is clear on my arm.

To me this is a lot of progress, I am still deciding if I will go back to front or front to back. (After I use the never dull and Motherís chrome polish on the back bumper I will prep the lights mounted in the bumper and mount it.. I guess Back to front it is)

So I have a daily ritual now of cleaning my inner fenders... tomorrow they get a treatment.

I installed the grilles, headlight doors, etc, that makes quite a visual change.

I will hit my front bumper with never dull, then Mothers Chrome polish and then install it. The supports are all powdercoated and the fasteners are all restored.... I can wait to see that underbite!!!

You should always wear pants to hide the White Canadian Legs.....and to protect them

Get going on them bucket seats.....it's not good to store them folded as you have them.

Looking good

It was painted (all) in the early 70ís.

Only the jams etc are original paint.

I think my inner fender plates are done:-)

I started mounting up the bumper brackets.

I started restoring the fan, huge ugly defects... the paint doesnít like the blades... I will have to try again...

Big News: I have a small but mighty army visiting next weekend to install, align, adjust, polish, prep, eat steaks, repeat. Nick Morocco and Al Corporon have generously agreed to help me out!! I have refocused my time to buy clips,
Fasteners, bits and bites I need to try to minimize any waiting/thinking/delays.

I put in orders to Inline Tube and Fusicks.

I bought head light bezels... they look better than mine.

I did a few time consuming items today, help is OTW next weekend so I want to have as many restored prepared parts to install as possible. Removed the old mirrors, removed the exhaust manifolds (I stuck them on for the Dyno and never pulled them off for resto) bumpers, several items cooking in Evaporust

I am trying to go in a proper order but that is hard with zero experience so best to just work from front to back, bottom to top :-)
