    That white is just brilliant, Good for you on the rewire being done.
    You show photos from the rear, with the sticker, does your body end up square, straight and flush with the rear cross member?
    I have to mount a replacement body this spring and I did NOT take photos. I took the old body off years ago.

    Rear crossmember does not sit square with the body.

    It's offset for the license plate.

    The one with the clear lens? Just a cheap set of flood lights I found at the store (other one went on the trailer).

    Nope, that's them old fashioned mile thingies they used back in the last century :twisted:

    Actually that's mileage since we got him back in '90, the speedo cable cable was disconnected somewheres around the 5 mile mark when he got zambonie-fied.:)

    More progress made- won't be long now :)


    Some of you may remember my take on a dual master cylinder installation-

    [​IMG]


    I finally, after *WAY* too much fabrication work, got the remote reservoir installed :)


    [​IMG]

    and plumbed-

    [​IMG]



    Now, at this point I'd like to say I *KNOW* I bought a &^%$ bleeder kit, I *KNOW* I saw the &^%$ bleeder kit not too long ago, but do you think I could *FIND* the &^%$ bleeder kit today? mehh

    Well, I got most of the air out, it will have to wait until I get some help for the rest of it. :rofl:

    Tomorrow it's the final electrical work & finish up rebuilding the vacuum wiper motors.



    That is all- please return to your regularly scheduled threads :)

    Looks fantastic! Love the plumbing and wiring ... Looks better than professional.

    What do you call those brass fittings you have on the bottom of your MC? And where can I get two of em?
