Nice progress. I was able to install a front cable on a '68 with the fenders installed by fishing a heavy gauge wire through from the interior side, through the hole and down the firewall. I tied the end of the wire to the leading end of the brake cable, and pulled the wire through from the interior side until the cable emerged. Not the easiest thing to do, but not terribly bad either. Good luck!

Thanks for the tip on that, we did discuss the idea of using and electricians fish tape so we'll give that a shot at a later date.
Got more done today, installed the Ray Bryant bumper decal, installed package tray reusing the original jute padding, got my restored trunk divider back in place and installed the rear inner panels and seat back. Tomorrow is carpet, door panels, seats, and hopefully a little test drive!

Default I think we're going to make it!

There's a lot of "tweaking" to do but we've gotten enough done to take it to the Nationals - display only. After the show, I have plenty to tidy up. Tomorrow night is cleaning up and getting the hub caps installed, Tuesday is load 'er up time to head east.

One of the best things about this project is the great people I've met in this hobby. For those members here whom I've never met, if you are attending the Nationals, please stop by and introduce yourself, I would love to meet you.
Despite my brother's tremendous help and a marathon 5 days of working well into the evenings and all weekend, the car is not done yet, but done enough to bring it out - hopefully see some of you this weekend!
