    Just a little update.    Restored the semaphores, stripped dash back to original paint.

    And oh ya. I’m gonna ship that torsion bar and a few bucks to you.      When in Colorado, I installed the right spring plate upside down (notch was downward). so the grooves barely were hooked onto the torsion bar since they were on outer half.  So, the spring plate slipped off of the grooves created that issue  4C819CB2-1360-4253-AA4A-A7BC6497760B0CE68BF5-73E9-4F70-A975-54DBF4149CFA55CF54E6-5920-4655-B88C-43B73D39A948I took it apart, flipped spring plate and it was fixed quickly.

    Next:

    I have an idea, let’s redo my windows on the kitchen counter.

     

    Where else would you do them???

    Is there a “kit” you can buy to redo the front window?

    Front window frames are as fun as getting teeth pulled… 😎

    The harder I work, the better I feel, sorta 😎

    I’m glad I didn’t know how monotonous this window rubber was before I started ……..or else 4A6B0009-652B-4EBC-BFC5-2A1FCD5CAB30I would have never done it.   But now I’m in too deep.  This is rubber for one bus door   Jesus   I have no idea how Kcw can install all this without killing a new paint job     12771EF3-B340-40EA-B0BA-45433464EA31

    Haha! “You can do it” I remember hearing that many times last year.

    Are you going to put the correct rivets in??!? 🙂

    One window down. One to go.  Yeh, Franz.  I replaced the correct rivets.    Used a ball pean hammer and nail set to round over.  7EE96DF1-396A-4DDB-813E-D2F3554A600FE453C2F3-FDC7-49BF-94CA-ED03EF1810CC
