Spent yesterday fitting the metal trim molding and the metal roof trim panels.

Also still working on the fit of the rear deck. Screws will be replaced with machine bolts once I get the edges sanded so it fits better.

Are you going to screw the delete panel into the side panels? Are you going to use nutserts or ?

I may 'glass in some tabs or something on mine.

For now, I'm just screwing into the lip on the side trim panels.

The ledge that the seat-delete sits on is only 3/4" wide, so I didn't want to have to drill too big a hole for the rubber nutserts to sit in.

When I take the car apart, I'll glass in some metal tabs for the screws to have something stronger to bit into.

Test fit the shifter and cut a bit of sheet metal so I'd have 1/2" of clearance.





Had to see how the Hurst stick looked on it.


The shifter is tapped for 5/16" bolts but the handle has holes for 3/8" bolts. Wonder if I can find a collar to take up the gap?

Gonna have to figure out which shift boot & trim ring to use..I don't think the stock sized one won't fit around the Pro5.0 shifter. That's a challenge for a day far off in the future

Finished the glassing/filling/fitting/sanding of the rear seat delete.

Going to wait until I'm ready to install it for the final time before I sand it further and recoat it with Monstaliner (roll on textured bedliner) to get the even texture back.




Big cash outlay today...ordered my AC from Classic Auto Air. I looked at all the systems repeatedly and kept coming back to them because of recommendations here. I ordered the Perfect Fit setup for a 65, but with a larger condenser and universal line kit. Didn't get the pulleys/brackets/compressor since I have those components already.

Fit & Welded the rear valance to the car.
Since I'm doing a tight fit fiberglass bumper, I welded the bumper extension holes too.

Still have some finishing work to do (sand/fill/sand/etc).







I'm also going to fill in the quarter panel to rocker seam. The quarters are repops, but the rockers are original and I fear the metal might be a bit thin for welding (the car was sandblasted before I got it). I could use all-metal filler, but I really don't want to risk it cracking down the road, so I will most likely figure out how to weld it without blowing it apart.

Maybe if I used a thin metal rod to sit in the seam and then tacked that in place...anyone have any tips?

Looking good Dan! Where did you get the bumper?

I picked up a carbon fiber maier racing one second hand from another member for a good price. Plan on painting it body color.

Waiting to get some bumper brackets to mount it (didn't like maier's method of mounting it).

I wish MTF would make a number that fort the stock quarter extensions...talked to them last week and asked if that was planned, but not yet.
