Carb soaking in cleaner tonight. Kit on bench awaiting clean carb. new points installed. bought wrong condenser...dang it. Tried to finalize the remaining parts list for ordering.

And What did I find tonight? The motorcycle I'd like this car to purchase for me.
and even better is that it is within about 3 hours of home instead of CA, TX, or GA.

Time to keep cracking away on this to replace the funds I deeply desire to deplete to get that bike.

just placed a HUGE order of parts to bring this thing up to par and make it ready for a car show. Lots of bang for the buck I think. Complete new interior, some rebuild kits for hard parts.
So far it was painless except to the plastic card and the balance in paypal. Now I only have to finish reassembling the carb, soak the fuel pump. yada yada yada...
lots of little stuff I can do until the parts arrive.

sizing up for the 2nd order of parts to bring it closer to the finish line.
Got to love a sale...with no sales tax....and FREE shipping over $99.

Living in the furthest place that supplies anything remotely correct for this car...its great to have the 'net' for shopping and have places that can and are willing to provide us 'geographically challenged' customers an extremely competitive deal.


Tires are the next to last 'major' purchase. Thought I could use some tires I had but they really are a tad too large. I'm not cutting fenders to make them fit.

carb rebuilt.
fuel pump rebuilt.
distributor rebuilt.
plugs wires and cap being installed.

Complete interior being replaced. Starting by removing old interior. Giving it a real good deep cleaning.

Brake system parts still in transit. So I have time to make it run, and clean up the fuel tank.
