I'll bet Stuff is getting harder and harder to fine. Used to be able to walk in local parts store and get everything you needed.

Well, I got my doors and rear quarter windows stripped apart and gutted. Getting the rear windows out, turned out to be a bit tricky.

Good news is all the window regulators and both door release mechanisms are nice and tight and not wobbly. Just need a good cleaning. Also a plus, all the nylon window rollers are still intact and in good shape. There again just need a good cleaning. That's a big relief to not have to buy this stuff also. Now to take them to work and run them through the jet cleaner. Here are some pics.

Here are some pics of what I have to fix on the dash. Pretty heavily pitted, but no holes rusted through.

Well, I got my NiCopp brake "lines" today, along with the stainless steel tubing, er uh, I mean "brake line" nuts! I got both 3/16" and 1/4" tubing.

I also received a gift package from a member of the PY board today, filled with all kinds of things I will use on my car, so it was like Christmas again!

This thing might actually get running in the near future at this rate.

Got all my door and rear 1/4 window tracks and regulators cleaned up. Got the rusty stuff bead blasted to look like new. Now to paint stuff and re-coat the rubber ends on the steel window stops.

Well, I found a good deal on a Victor intake that was like new, and a mega brace, lifter bore brace, at Pontiac Heaven yesterday. More parts and pieces to add to my car parts collection.

Well I tried to open a Photo Bucket account and it said I already had an account! Forgot all about it. Signed in and now I'm going to try to get this link thing to work. Here goes.

Wow, that worked! That is the dash after I sanded all the paint and primer off of it and scuffed up the rust. Next week I will get it POR15'nd and epoxy primed so I can fill the pits and get it ready for paint.

I was going to say the dash and under the dash should be sand blasted. But it makes such a freaking mess and you will have sand falling out of every little spot it collects for years and years.
The phosphoric acid in a spray bottle should get all those hard to reach spots.

Well, my centerlink arrived today. Looks like a nice piece. Got it from Southwest Speed for $99 + shipping which came to $112 total. $13 shipping, not bad!

Was digging through stuff and found a brand new, still partially shrink wrapped, Hurst shifter handle. Forgot I had it.

Ran across the tach and gauges I cleaned up back in the 90's and wrapped in plastic bags to keep clean.

Ran across the heater control I restored back in the 90's also. I tried to match the gauge color by mixing metallic green and Pontiac silver/blue metallic engine paint. Not quite a match, but looks good anyway. Controls work super smooth and easy now.
