Sanded Rocker areas and blocked.
Did some other things too. Running out of stuff to chase on the outer body finally.

Next week end I buy the materials to start painting. I'm going to build a booth so it'll be a while till the outer body gets done.

Complete dash finished, new wiring harness installed by Master Jedi father in law ,repainted the guage needles, and installed all new light bulbs and the radio. We will reinstall after reworking the pedal assembly. I was surpeised how well the new dash pad fit Kudo's to Dave at Roseville.

Oil change, a little cleaning, tune carb and check timing.  Weather is a little suspect so may as well get prepared for the ride to Carlisle(457 miles+-) each way.

Going to be a crazy week this week, work has been very busy and I'm going to be putting 12hr days in all week so just resting up today.

Good to hear it fit well! I just got a dash pad from Dave too! Post up some pictures!

Took a ride down to the fox lake show. Talked with Mike about his EFI setup... nice! Then with Brad and Glen for awhile. Saw the pic of the 71 Brad bought... also nice! Headed back home, pulled up to my garage , put NIKKI in park... clunk (with kind of an echoing ring to it). Now what......?  Right now I dont even want to know.   :nono:

Pulled the radiator, shroud, alternator, and water pump.  Cleaned out and painted the radiator.  Stripped the paint off the shroud and took it back to bare plastic.  This week I will clean and detail everything up and put it all back together with new gaskets, belts, and hoses.

I got to drive it after about 7 months of storage!!!  :woohoo:

 :burnout: I didnt check the trans fluid before leaving and it was a gallon low!! Talk about slippage.  :faint:

I topped it off to within a quart low at Home Depot and i was on from there, loved the ride!! Looks awesome with my new wheels, need to find a better 4th dog dish cap and they can go on.  :bigsmile:

Installing the insulation and carpet, ordering some parts, beg wifey for new front seat covers Leathers, ( hopeless but worth a shot ) then install the dash. I got the pedal assembly , stud bracket and Booster reinstalled correctly this time, who knows maybe I will install the windshield. Even if I only get 10% of this accomplished I will be happy as Pie!!
