Did't want to use a hood prop so got some cables to hold up the glass hood.



Wanted to change the height of the scoop so made up another air cleaner base.

So you have to put these on when you want the hood to stay up? Where do you store them?

The end toward the rear is attached to the hinge so it just stays there. The front loop just slides over the notched part of the hinge to keep the hood open.

Filled some holes in the engine bay, smoothed then out and painted it satin black. Almost ready to drop the engine back in, just gotta run the new fuel line, battery cables to the trunk, route new speedo cable for the 4-speed toploader and a few other items on the list.

I'm in competition with Klutch to see which of us gets our car primered first. I built my mini spray booth today. Paint tomorrow.

I intalled all the door and roof seals. Then assembled the drivers side door. I hope the seals break in a little. The doors are a bit snug. I took her for a number of short rides to work out and try to find troubles. It runs good, but if I punch the gas it misses a bit then when the RPMs get going it seems to go well. Any thoughts. I also found a little oil leak. But she is getting closer. Still dusty.

Finally got it cleared off and the battery charged. Cranked and cranked - finally threw some lawn mower gas down the carb. and it fired right up.....then died. I know it has gas in the tank and I see some in the clear filter before the fuel pump - but still it won't run! I guess more work is required - lol.


The good news is that I get to figure out how to reattach the gas pedal. It's never been off before - but I knocked it off today - I found a funny looking bolt laying on what is left of the floor board - so I have a starting point.......for another day - haha.

Is there no "part of me" that says wait until late fall to "rotisserize" it? Enjoy it for a while. My resto took 6 years, once I made the decision.
