New bushings and races in, races dropped right into the hubs, so I peened around the hub then put them in. Little rattle can to give me something to get dirty.

One day a week hasn't been cutting it on fixing my van. So lately I have been bringing my work home with me. It started with making door panels, then evolved into fixing the cracked vinyl top to the dog house and painting it to match the new black interior. It isn't perfect and I wasn't going for show quality but it is now a decent driver quality. The holes on top is where my drink holder goes, so it will be covered up.

It is a bit dusty at the moment but should be installed on Saturday this week after I insulate the dog house.

I just started painting my window wing frames and will polish the exposed aluminum this week. It already started to shine up very well with some 600 grit sandpaper.

I love using appliance epoxy paint because it goes on smooth with no primer and you don't need to sand. It is also very hard after setting overnight. I hit it a few times today while removing the old felt and never scratched it. I dropped about $400 in just rubber for the window and felt for the channel today. That doesn't even included the door rubbers and windshield gasket which should be done the same time as paint and body. (UUGH!)

I figured while the glass was out, what better time to start tinting them? It will be much easier to cut the film and install like this anyway. I have the original hardware pulled out. They could use a nice soak in some simply green and maybe some new nylon washers. I'm meeting with a guy on Saturday to pick up two new windows for the driver and passenger doors and one window vent. My original vent wing frames are so rusted and corroded, I an afraid they will break while trying to open them. I picked up some awesome vent frames from the high desert, but one was sans glass. But of course the vent glass has a very slight curve to it so a glass cutter wants a lot to do it. Thank god for used in good shape.

With any luck the rubber and felt should be here next week and I can finish up the frames for assembly for week after next or start of August. When that is all done and painted, I could even snap the door panels into place. Hrmmm, that would be a welcome sight!

Nice work man. Did you have as much of a pain in the ass time as I did getting those vent assemblies in and out?

I picked these up from a junker in Idaho earlier this year. I’m looking forward to wrangling my originals out of the door soon. Hahaha!

A friend of mine just picked this up for me last night. It was posted on Facebook marketplace as a ‘69 Ford grille. It looks extremely straight with just some rust stains on it.

The guy needed some quick money for it and sold it for $30. I figured I’ll clean it up and use this one on my van, flip the one I currently have and keep saving until I can get a Glory Grille after the paint and body is in way better shape.
