I had a nice fellow replace the spring on my garage door last night. A door that opens will help!!!

I have an evening of shuffling parts planned, fenders, hood, trunk lid, wheels, etc, etc

Raced around like a fool after work with my father in law, I now have my car in only 2 locations and Little is left at the Igloo.

I have no space!

The costs are really busting my balls, when I estimate 500 bucks it costs 1000...... I know y’all have done this before but I am no longer a resto-virgin.

I started calling interior shops, yet another one of my 50% estimates. A few people have given me great recommendations so I am headed in the right direction.

Front clip metal items are still awaiting powder coating.

I ordered tires from Rusty Small F70-14 Goodyear White stripe bias plys. I am very happy to support someone who contributes to our hobby/passion daily.

I firmed up general pricing and timing with an interior shop. I own various interior pieces so mostly the interior shop will install of course there will be some materials.

I received yet another exciting box-o-fun from Inline Tube... fan clutch, trunk weather strip, hood stops, master cylinder lid, rag
Joint, some fastener kits, clips, etc.

I picked up my rad, beautiful re-cored and ready.

I have to verify one dimension tonight so I can order some more Fusick items... the felt “seals” at four corners of the rad, and a few other goodies.

My driver is full of car parts, I couldn’t take even one passenger..... I better get out there and get organized!

On my Z, the insides of the inner fenders had a lot of undercoat. I stripped them using a course wire wheel on a 4.5 inch angle grinder. Once the wires start to bend a bit, flip it around but be VERY CAREFUL, as it will really bite for the first few minutes, until they start bending the other direction. Then turn it around again. Lather rinse repeat, or something like that. Sure tears that old dried up undercoat out in a hurry.

I will gently try some cleaning techniques.

Thanks

Ordered a set of T3 headlights, headed to Dan V for NOCC pick up.

Ordered Fusick plastic/rubber/felt “seals” for around the rad.

Ordered Inline Tube inner fender splash guards..... do they come with staples? They don’t sell them.... where do I get them?

Plus my powdercoating is done so I am racing over to get it before skateboard shopping with the lad :-)

PS: my “To Purchase” list is getting smaller, I need to introduce the “To Sell” list very shortly.
