Wow, that's not much time. Be careful and don't damage anything. I hope you have trustworthy friends to help.

beautiful resto! the door panels made me jealous! I bought TMIs best offering and they did them 3 times for me and I am still disappointed with quality and how many times I've had had to install them and yet your originals are "pristine" my Z is a 09C so this is a great date resto to look at thank you!!

Glad you're enjoying the thread. I'm trying to document as many details as I can, some people are into it, others aren't - I'm fine either way.

My brother and I spent another 5 hours on the car tonight - had to wait out a local tornado that touched down about 20 miles from us. Anyway, got the engine compartment finished up for the most part and fired the engine up to verify we were leak free. All was good. Air cleaner is a "runner", have a vintage fly eye for it. We have a few more exterior items to address then we're down to the interior.

Underside wrapped up for now. E-brake cabling will have to be "post-Nationals" as the front cable installation with inner fender in place will be a time consuming challenge.
Driveshaft loop is the one that was on the car in 1971.

Getting the front e-cable to bend tight enough from the firewall to subframe is a challenge without the inner in place...

Car looks awesome.

The alt harness seems odd to me. Is that how they ran in '69 with the side switch from left in '67-68 ?
