Finally have a weekend w/o snow, rain, or tornadoes. :bananasmi
Saturday, giving the Rumble Bee a long over do inside/outside wash.
Sunday, cruising the Cuda

The Moog front end rebuild kit arrived.  Figure that it will take longer than a weekend to install. So, enjoying the car before she's on jacks for a month or two. :faint:

I have a million little things things to do this weekend.  I need to make and install a gas tank filler tube to body gasket so my trim ring fits snugly.  Then replace the filler tube to tank seal.  Also I need to clean out the trunk and look into fixing a cracked filler tube trunk seal.  Then paint the flip top gas cap base black.  Under the car I need to fix up my kickdown linkage and install the spring up by the carb.  Up front I need to put on the new lug nuts and unilug spacers for my Keystone Klassics.    After all that I need to install the drivers side front turn signal lens, and paint the rear spoiler.  While the pain is in the gun I'll paint the grille black ala R/T after I polish the shiny bits.  If I have time I need to repaint the black on my rims.  Then....  take apart and inspect my remote mirror to see if I can get it to work.  Then I'll do the tighten up on the pass side mirror so it stays in place.  I also need to install my Grans Spaulding Dodge lic plate frame and Scat Pack decals in the qtr windows.  If I have the time I'll check out the leak by the trans, and install a shift kit and change the trans fluid.  Also add a qt of oil while the hood is up.  While I am down by the lic plate I need to install the right hardware for my rear valence.  It's loose on one end and fitting poorly.

I hope I can get some of that stuff done this weekend.  I'll need to get a MC ride in as well.  It's supposed to be nice at the beach and that means the bikinis will be out in force.   :cooldancing:

Well, this morning I got my new heater core for the 73, took some parts off the S.E., removed the windshield and dash assembly out of the 70 R/T (so nobody steals the VIN tag or speaker grilles) and tried to decide how to juggle all the wheels I want to keep/not keep on the cars I'll be selling.

If it doesn't rain, I'll be bleeding brakes and installing an antenna on the 73.

Front valance and parking lights went in last week.

after who knows how long of having a duchman panel that I got from clown, i finally found a use for it. we replace a good section of the rear winshield channel from the extra area that he included. Thank you so much clown, you really saved my butt.

now i just have three pin head sized holes from under the vinyl top to fix and all the metal work on my car is done!!!

Pulled the small dent out at the drivers mirror using stud gun.
Fabbed quarter panel corner to match up correctly to the top of door.
Goodmark...ya know! Alot of grinding and welding to get these just right.

Aligned door lines to quarter panel. then tried to get fender aligned to door. Called it a day. OMG this alignment work is brutal.
