Smile Plumbing #101

So tonight marked the official end of "dis-assembly" and the beginning of "re-assembly". The drives side firewall area, being quite congested seemed like a good palce to start.

Looks great! I replaced all the hard line and I do mean ALL in my wife's 69 Grande that has a 351 and FMX with stainless steel lines. That was fun snaking them with the engine and trans in place.

I assumed the OP was doing a '68. Being somewhat anal, I try to duplicate original appearance. MCA judging says hood hinges & springs should be natural or phosphate & oil,1964 1/2 can be black or natural. (1968 underhood bolts should be cad.)
