Something's missing...

The engine will be done soon enough. By then, everything will be finished, pop that puppy in and break it in driving Rocky Mountain highways.

Newly powder coated engine brace and pulley cover, re-plated hardware, new bushings.

I'm going with yellow zinc spring plates and caps, pop it with some bling, keeping refurbished originals in original parts box for next owner.



Is there a sticker missing from the empty panel?

rear rotors

I don't know about this one...had the rotors and parking brake surfaces turned and then painted them the same as heat exchangers, VHT aluminum. Is it just me, or does it look strange? Should they be darker grey or black? Does it really matter?



VHT paint than bake at 400 in the grill for a few hours.


I looked at some in the catalogue. These will pass.

progress

The rear hubs are complete, re-plated calipers, rock guards, trailing arms, hardware; new brake lines and fittings, new traiing arm bushings and bearings.

I had to grind the ends of the shoes, removing 4-5 mm of material, to make room for the adjusters. The rotors slid right on.








Next up; install torsion bar and spring plates

Stopped by Storz to see the engine

Thanks. It all started with the squeaking trailing arm bushings and kind of grew legs. Funny, how quickly the madness takes over.

I keep thinking, how can this tank keep weeping oil, a year later?

Oil Tank leak

Hopefully its just the sending unit gasket. Same one as the the fuel gauge takes. You can change it without removing the oil tank though..
Good luck

It was not leaking prior to disassemby, I think it's just residual oil, but an amazing amount of time for it to drip out.

Here's a glam shot to plug Tru-6, I am very happy about this work.

Thanks. So far so good, eh?

The engine is getting close, 4-6 weeks. I'm not ready for it. Been spending too much time gardening and just avoiding Red. I only have to rebuild the pedal assembly, install torsion bars and spring plates, put the rocker panel trim back on, bleed the brakes, and my part is done. Procrastinating the end.

I pulled the carpet to work on the pedals, two months ago. I'm pretty sure it is the original carpeting the car was born with. Should I keep it for posterity?

Out with the old, in with the NOS.

Ken, not trying to divert you or give you another project, but I've decided to put coil overs on my '69. I decided after the guy who owns the shop I take my car to (who has a '76 w/ a 3.2) said he was going to do his. He says it improves ride & handling and makes setting the ride height really easy - plus I've done the torsion bar adjustment a few times & just don't want to do it again. Others I talked to said it reduces the cost of corner balancing. The parts aren't too expensive, but there are a few things about the '69 -'71 cars that are different from later cars.

Thanks for the tip. No diversions for me, I'm too close to being done, done.

You got me. San Diego area? Should be done by end of summer, maybe by end of July.

Looks great Ken. All your hard work's paying off. That first drive's going to be amazing. Also the second, third, fourth drive, etc.

Leave the pedal rebuild for next owner.

I put it back together and on to the spring plates and rear torsion bars.

NOS carpet pads


COCO mats


Rebuilt driver's seat, new seat belts, new MOMO Prototipo

Spring plates

I bought some yellow zinc coated ones on an impulse. I like shiny things.

Shiny and showy vs invisible?
