Installing the front and back window is something I wanted someone with experience to do. With the ease of messing things up and having leaks later, or damaged trim, I figured I would be better off with a pro. Unfortunately, even a pro can’t correct for bad reproduction parts.
I have a number of small things to button up as I move on to the next big project for the interior. The first is to get the washer pump pedal installed, securing the passenger side of the firewall insulation as well.

It’s been a while since I have been able to spend much time on the 67. Partly because I have been busy, and partly due to my tendency to over analyze when it comes time to spend money. Wheels and tires are some coin, so I had to do my thing and over analyze it. In the end, I think it was worth it.
The plan for the seats is to remove the original upholstery and padding, blast the frames, then powder coat them. By the end, I hope to have no trace of the old smell and hopefully get rid of any squeaking as well. As an added bonus, the surface rust should be cleaned up and the frames protected from future rust.

The mother-load of parts has arrived this week. I just finished installing the fuel tank, so now I can continue on to the reverse lights, rear valance, and finally the rear bumper. This project will finish my exterior assembly behind the rear window, leaving fuel lines and electrical, plus the cosmetics inside the trunk.
While in between bigger projects, I have been doing little things like the tail lights. It would be nice to see the whole rear exterior together again, and looking like it should. At least then when the garage door is open, people may think its a finished car. If they don’t notice the lack of wheels under it. Continue reading “Tail lights”
