Needed to reduce the size of the wheel for comfort and aesthetics. The 69 horn obviously didn't fit on the 68 either causing the horn to suspiciously not work. Works perfect after change.

I know you might not be a fan of plastidip, but it sure made a difference in the look of the front bumper/grill and rear bumper. And when I'm tired of it, I peel it off. Totally worth the $15 and time.

Quite possibly a time warp of dirt that I started with here!
Honestly didn't think I even had a tag on it it was so buried...

Not perfect, but I found the tag and the OG paint! 2.79 gears FWIW

Apparently I overlooked the before pictures in the front. Previous owner put in the Granada disc brakes.

After front brakes paint, I have always brushed mine on, but did spray the rear black. The red is brushed.
