Need the following items please
« on: October 09, 2013, 01:51:55 PM »
1) Plastic "cover" that attaches to the bottom of the dash beneath the glove box. This part hides the factory A/C parts.
2) Cigarette lighter - JUST the handle and element with complete chrome - don't care if it's dirty, I'll clean it up; I have a NOS enclosure and door, and a good electrical contact, I just need the handle/element.
 
Thank you.

Good to see you're still out there and working on your car. It must be
getting close. I've got a lighter if you send me your address, I'll send it
to you. I've probably got your address somewhere, but it would be easier
if you just pm me.

Hi Chris!
 
Welcome back!  If you're down to looking for a cigarette lighter, you must have that wagon just about finished!  Would love to see some photos of the finished product!

Hi guys:
  Yeah, been two years since I have been out here, progress is very slow but sure. This is my active time with the weather cooperative (too hot in Summer).
  A quick synopsis of where I am at - I'll post pics later to Photobucket.
1) EXTERIOR:  Bodywork is 95% complete. All body panels are on the car again, but all windows are out. The drivers side, hood and rear door have been painted - allowing me to get an idea of what I missed during prime/block/sand (a few spots); I will paint the rest of it within a few weeks. Then, I will repair, resand, and send to a GOOD painter who has the proper facilities for final coat.
2) INTERIOR:
a) The dashboard goes in this weekend. It is fitted with NOS outlets, NOS control for the heat and A/C, a NOS dashcap, NOS ashtray assembly, and NOS speaker. It's absolutely beautiful.
b) Floor, roof, and side panels have been lined with Fatmat Extreme. All other interior surfaces have been repainted to correct factory color.
c) New headliner goes in within two weeks.
d) NOS windshield goes in after headliner.
3) MECHANICAL:
a) Car came with horrible and falling apart dealer installed A/C. Found a rotten '74 wagon that had factory A/C and we pulled the whole unit, ductwork, restored everything, and installed it in my wagon. It will be powered with a NEW compressor.
b) Rear end!! The only thing that remains to be restored. Need new springs and have to restore the housing.
This has been a five year project so far - as close to "frame off (LOL)" as you can get. Looking back I would NOT have picked this car but I have fought through it. Paid way to much for it to begin with, but I'll be very proud of it when it's done.
Thanks guys.
