For piece of mind I would DEFINETELY pull the kick panels.....you do not want to be
driving your car with a good possibility of having mice feces in the kick panels.....plus there is certainly other debris inside the kick panels after 50 years. Pull them and give them a good cleaning.

No, the carpet tucks behind the kick panel.

No not at all. I normally install all my carpet last so as to not damage it by laying and walking on it if installing everything after and it is not an issue if done correctly and with some handy tools.

Thanks Rick and Dan!!

I have some heavy hitters keeping a close eye on me :-)

I was able to reach inside the passenger side with the front clip off and the heater box off but the drivers side is not accessible.

I agree good plan to re-and-resto/clean-and-re.

I will fit it in.

I hope to get to the interior shop today to firm up plans for the first two weeks of September.

Firmed up with the exhaust shop, the roller will go for exhaust OTW to the interior shop.

PS: simply cleaning the car was very motivating.

Pull the kick panels Grasshopper. It’ll be one of those things that you’ll be glad you did. Likely a mess behind them and you will have learned another “how to” in GM restos. Remember what I said years ago.....do it nice, not twice.

Will Do!

I may do the passenger side now (as the heater box is out) and the drivers before I hook up the parking brake.

I am trying to stay on schedule!!

I started fitting the shifter “hump”.

I removed items so the car is ready for interior, seats, seatbelts, rear door panels, package shelf panel and insulation, panel behind the rear seat back, etc. Cleaned and cleaned.

Started cleaning the trunk lid and removing some sound deadning that has come loose.

Maybe picking up tires on Wednesday.... TBD.

My next Inline Tube Order is ready.

Pressing forward.

I ordered a bunch of odds and ends my Inkine Tube Order keeps getting larger.

I media blasted most of the fasteners for the front clip.

Moving forward.

I have a work weekend Aug 23-24-25-26 planned to install the front clip. (I am preparing for the front clip and for the exhaust shop Aug 31st, and then to the interior shop Aug 31.

I had a nice chat with Lynn Stager tonight, they are planning an action packed weekend in Chicago-Land. Hop on hop off buss tour, museums, MCACN, you name it.

I need to find a few more hours in the day for my hunny, our new plan is to excercise together at 9:00 PM which is good for many reasons and some time to chat.

So I love mat clear !!!

Wow the original fasteners look awesome!!

Every day I have a new baggie of fasteners and odds and aids and clips to prepare.

I even prepared the headlight rings with an SOS pad in the kitchen sink... I had to do the dishes to get clearance to land that flight. They look great.

I need the seals to put the heater core in the heater box... I am on the hunt!!

I am restoring the small filler panels at the front of each fender and in the middle of the grilles.
