Can't get the door panels to fit the way I like them. Fixing lots of little issues. Vertually anything that could leak did. Fixed all those. The meter valve I rebuilt for the brakes failed. It's at Mike's (the booster guy) to see what I did wrong. Had to take the console out which is a pain in a th400 car. Had to take the front bumper back off as it had a little flaw in the paint. Taking the wheels back for rebalance as they put stick on weights on the wheels. I only have about 100 days to get this dialed in. Seem like a lot but it's sneaking by real quick. Sorry to leave everybody hanging but I'm still working on it. Thank you, Joe

I haven't had much for pictures lately but the engine compartment is coming together. Not much room left after everything is in place. Sorting out a/c & heater hoses. Haven't been sitting around much. Just lots of small stuff that needs attention...Joe

Went to bleed the brakes & the metering valve decided to exit stage right. I had Mike Gibbons restore it. Just arrived today. He does nice work. I'm almost ready to take it for a ride

Mike (Muncie Mike) does do great work. He did a 69 M22 for me. Larry
