Parts arrive for both cars...

I finally found an early, correct rear hatch striker plate.

On the Ferris blog, I cover with a little more detail the other various parts I received today for both cars.

One nice thing is that in spite of the rapidly shrinking list of required parts, they seem to be getting a little easier to find.

A little patience, along with a long restoration process, has paid off with NOS parts.

I've got grand plans for getting things done on the car this weekend:

  • replace master cylinder
  • bleed brakes
  • replace shift arm on transmission
  • replace leaky axle boots
  • install fuel tank
  • install OEM muffler, heater boxes and elbows
  • alignment
  • fix rear seat
In a few days, the reality of what I've accomplished will hopefully match my ambition.

The second tail light should arrive in the next two to three days-I'm looking forward to how they'll look when installed together. 

More to come...
