What?????? You're not going to buy and restore an old Indy car and trailer to pull around? Razzer

You know though, that would be one heck of a show-stopper!

Tom,

Your car looks great!!! We are about in the same phase you are with your car. Installing some of the stuff like weather-strip and window felts that don't fit worth a darn. I'm still waiting on the large order from Vintage Camaro. Will follow up with more shared parts knowledge and pics when the parts arrive.

Hey Tom,
Car looks great!
I was wondering what steering box you used. I was thinking of changing my car to power steering too.
Thanks.

Hi Eric. I scored this box long ago. It had a tag on it that superceeded back to 67 application and the casting is correct with 5691676. I remember checking the ration lock to lock against a 67 ps box I had and it was real close.. the only mystery is the casting date 7B4 which I think is like 1974 or 1984 but not feb 4th 1967 like I wish it were Roll Eyes

I few things: noticing that some stuff that is seemingly easy slows you down to a crawl for a spell. Setting the windshield and getting the polished trim in place turned a little sour.. The conv top moulding is just a little bit off being a repro.. Where it covers over the wide stainless in the outside pillar post the curve is off so I tweaked the moldings to fit under the top chrome better.. that created a cascade effect where the windshield molding now looked recessed and the trim wasn't flush with each other.. to resolve that I had to remove each clip and elongate the screw holes to raise the clips from the windshield pinch channel... it sucked and was time consuming not to mention the multiple test fits created the risk of scratching the freshly redone stainless.. I got the pass side pretty sweet but the drivers leaves a little to be desired.. I had to stop tweaking as it was a few days wasted and the clock she is a tickin' Roll Eyes

Setting the windshield is cake.. the disappointing part is that you set the butyle tape down perfectly but then you have to apply some uneven pressure to get the glass to seal to it.. This distorts the bead and looking through the glass its kinda wavy and doesn't look pretty.. not sure how to avoid that without first painting the back of the glass black like late model cars do Frowner
confused

I'm taking other steps backwards as well.. The seat tracks etc were rusty per usual so I dipped them in my Evapor-rust bath. Comes out great but then needs to be oiled etc.. WAY better than beadblasting and getting sand all in there.. The stuff used to work amazing but its 5 years old now and loaded with contaminants.. well worth it initially for like 100 bucks
