Damned fine job Charlie, I dig your ride. Night and day difference and every mod is period correct.
Thank you, Astro! She’s really coming along now that I’m in the home stretch of sorts.
I ordered the wood for the sub flooring today and went to pick it up. She has a chirping while driving and she isn’t shifting too well. I have a new filter and modulator for the transmission the next time I can get it on the lift. I hope the chirping is something rubbing but I’ll have to drive it without the dog house to see.
I’m going to ditch these cheesy universals mirrors. They get kind of flimsy at normal speed down a city street. I hand some Ford west coast mirrors fall into my lap that will accept my older box mirrors.
Filled her up with some 1/2” plywood and went back to start laying the floor out.
I have it pretty much how I want it, I’ll need some longer screws to secure it and I have mapped out the important stuff underneath. Paint has been ordered and I’ll be picking it up tomorrow. I found a nice single stage maroon with metallic flakes in it. It’ll have a black metallic strip following the flares and lower body line. Understated but going for a period look, nothing too wild. I also found a shop that will chrome the rear bumper for $400 so I’m going to pull that and arrange for a drop off with them.
I’m trying to secure a vintage sunroof just in case I go that route for the front but we’ll see what happens.
