This work thing is really starting to interfere with my car repairs.

Installed my rear glass - by myself. took under an hour. I was surprised at how easy it went in.....makes me wonder if I did something wrong LOL. probably the P gods giving me a little gift so that I have the courage to tackle the brakes next week.

Ordered the remaining missing parts of my interior trim and installing visors today. interior is really starting to come together.

Impressive installation by yourself. Usually takes two.

Here are the promised pics

Impressive indeed, but count yourself lucky that you didn't have a defroster on the window with the wires, accck, that was a handful or three to do alone on mine!

Great progress, super unique!

My rear quarters also have the exterior trim reveal more and more as they get to the front B pillar.

I think I was able to do the rear alone because my pop outs were out and I didn't have defrost wires.

I put the pinch weld around the pop out windows tonight - looks fantastic. Thanks all for the photos and help sourcing the parts that were missing. Also put a little oil on the chrome and the rubber which helped a great deal with closure. As soon as the triangular spacers arrive, I think I will have achieved a better fit.

Installed the visors, but had ordered the wrong coat hooks. Had to drill new holes for the visors and had a little trouble fitting them, but finally got them to work.

Continuing to replace rubber throughout as it arrives. With the amount of rain we get here in New Orleans, Tilda needs to be rain tight.

Putting this front trim is a beast. brand new trim is sharp and stiff.

I'm not positive, but doesn't the trim act as a wedge to lock the windshield in and therefore go in after the glass is installed? I'm looking forward to pulling my glass soon too so would be great to know the correct sequence.

no, it's something that would be next to impossible to achieve once the glass is in place. I didn't want the visible trim and I used a very thick very firm plastic wedge wire used for weed whackers for my car because I wanted the smooth look. I did it after the glass was in place and that was difficult enough to slip in. couldn't imagine trying the same thing with the metal trim.

You are correct, it acts as a wedge, but yes Queenie is doing it correctly it goes in first.

Got it. Thanks for the clarification. Carry on Queenie! BTW, LOVE the cowhide. I have a customer who upholstered chairs in his office with it.

Q-

Just wanted to say “thanks” for the info and heads up on the “Tandy Leather Chain” thanks to your little info nugget and a color reference from another member, I was able to score two large pieces of a now discontinued type and color I needed for our door caps and possibly a dash re-cover too. Been meaning to say thanks all week but been crazy busy at work.

There was a rather funny twist on how I actually found the color but it’s kinda long. Bottom line, I have it and life is good.

Cheers B

I just discovered this thread and want to thank you for sharing your project. In a time when many are going "original", it's nice to see some fun old school individuality!

Beautiful car, and you inspire me to tackle new projects! Go Queen Go!!!!

Gee -Thanks guys - you made my day! This forum is so helpful for me.

We actually had snow here in the swamp today for the first time in 7 years. No progress outside ----too brrrrr cold.

Continuing to spray the stuck brake lines with PB Buster (thanks Tony), cleaned and fixed (!) my beautiful new to me tach (thanks Rick), and worked a little on my 3.2 (it has heat).

Here is the new green tach with the fantastic LED lights in "retro white". They look great to me...not too white but nice and bright. I added these when I refused the dash.

Trying to figure out how to incorporate the red into the dash area on the 3.2.....open for ideas. Anyone?

The Queen customizes her 3.2

Queenie, outside of a straight acetone/transmission fluid mix, Kroil seems to be the best performing penetrant. I've been using since the 90s, back when it was unheard of outside professional shops. Becoming more prevelant now.

As soon as it warms a little bit I will try those fittings again. If they still don't budge ordering the Kroll. Even if I replace my hard lines too, I need to get those off the main. Thanks

Got my front windshield in. 10 minutes max, by myself. No kidding. How is it that the jobs I am expecting to take forever take the shortest time while the "simple" ones take me days and several additional part orders?
