Finally put the starter back in the 72' today. Went back in WAY easier than it came out.

Also dug out a spare 71' Lemans door we had at the shop, scavenged the latch out of it for the 69'. Put some better roll arounds on the rear of the 69'.

I finished mom's siding now. I got one more room to tile and I am free. With no further delays maybe I can get this thing painted before winter. Income taxes came so right now I am a kid in a candy store. I got to pay a couple bills with it but i got enough to buy some car stuff. I thinkin steering wheel and SS chrome for the horn button. Dash pad and finish the dash. New bezel, SS dash piece. Weather stripping and the top. That ought to keep me busy a while after it is painted. Get the wiring and heater/air cond core back in.

I have owned 68-69's before I know one thing that is getting improved on from factory on this car. Dash gauges and radio are held in by the plastic dash bezel. Which is why they crack and fall apart. I had 68's turn the ignition off if they started to wheel hop before from this. I going to make bracing that goes from the firewall to the back of the gauges and radio. And from the metal dash where the steering column bolts on up to them. Give these parts some support so they can't just flop around anymore.

Was cleaning the back glass and once it was clean I noticed someone in the cars past apparently used a grinder to get ice off of the window. Not really but it has scratches in a pattern consistent with ice scraping.
So I just ordered a felt pad and cerium oxide powder to buff it some. They are not bad you can't see them unless your right up on it and looking. Even a foot away they gone. But i would rather they are not there at all.

Always nice to get one project out of the way and move back to the Chevelle.

Chevelle will be getting driven today, maybe a car show tomorrow. Might even turn 300 miles on it today. Hasn't seen much driving in the last 2 1/2 years.

Joins some friends for coffee this morning.

Great weather Ray for the Chevelle ride!!! At least here in SeaTac.
Saw a mid '50s two tone Merc and a teal '63 Impala 4dr w/skirts drive down International Blvd earlier this afternoon...heading South.
Cool.
