Oh boy.... pink?
The mighty 270ci
One year only glove box handle. It's busted in three pieces :(
Ummm, is this a front bumper?
The frame was for a fuel tank
Hope the front porch is better!
If it don't close, SLAM it!
Clutch pedal rod through the floorboard
Three of the original braces were rusted through, so it's time to fabricate some new ones
This is the sheet of 16ga we'll be using
Used thick paper to make a template and traced the pattern
Rough cut out
I finished the shape with our vertical disc sander
Marked the holes and the bend
Center-punched the hole locations
Yep, got it right :)
Black will make a nice contrast
Installed with stainless machine screws. I like it!
Original worn rubber 'spring' in the taillight buckets changed to new stainless spring and contacts
This old stuff isn't right
Fresh solder and sealant lined shrink tube for a nice weather-tight seal
Sealed against leaks
Restored taillight bucket with nicely shielded wiring
Time to dust off the frame and measure for the new wood
The new white oak bed has arrived!
It fits :)
This bed is only for show, so a simple clear varnish was used.
One down, 7 more...
This is starting to look good
Ugh, trying to adapt a new 13-wire harness to a 3-wire switch.
It took three latch mechanisms to make one good one, installed with stainless mounting hardware
Managed to salvage one mirror bracket to use as a pattern for some new ones
Test fitting the new weather strip.
That looks right. Time to glue it in place.
Taping off the area for weather strip adhesive. NO SMEARING!!!
Trimmed to perfection. Hope I can stand back up!
Time for some new door glass
