The Dr is in surgery… 😎 We decided to wait on the battery tray and B pilar repair before we dust off where we worked on it.. So Pat’s fixing the dash at the moment… Fits ate tit’s… 😎YberParticipantOctober 30, 2019 at 9:47 amPost count: 157
Yeah! Looks like getting down to the last of the metal work!Pat KKeymasterOctober 30, 2019 at 12:35 pmPost count: 1315
Welded and dressed holes in the fresh airbox cover and disassembled vent windows this morning. Rounding up anything that needs to be blasted.
Just finish up dash repairs around the radio opening.
We will build it if it comes.YberParticipantOctober 30, 2019 at 12:43 pmPost count: 157
WOW – REALLY, REALLY nice work, Pat!!!
Sorry – I forgot to mention – I think the height of the radio opening was also increased a bit back when I installed a stereo…John JonesKeymasterNovember 1, 2019 at 7:34 amPost count: 6471

I was thinking the block off plate would cover that up… It is only a cunt hair more than 1/16″ off each side…. 😎 well try one… 😎
I’m hoping for some WolfsBurgWest metal to show up today… Get that last of the metal work done and dust things off, and start body work!!!!YberParticipantNovember 1, 2019 at 8:35 amPost count: 157
Yeah – probably the factory cover plate will cover that. I KNOW for sure the stainless plate I machined (slightly larger) will cover it, so if it’s too big a pain – skip it!
BTW – do you happen to know what insulation was used on Willbur’s 65 SO42? It looks real nice and I’d like to find out.Pat KKeymasterNovember 1, 2019 at 1:40 pmPost count: 1315
JJ has me working on some shop cleanup/organization today. Came across a block plate. Looks like it will do.
We will build it if it comes.YberParticipantNovember 1, 2019 at 2:52 pmPost count: 157
Very cool, Pat! If that block-off plate works – I’m sure the trim piece with the stock Motorola radio will also fit.
Thanks for checking that out!!
REALLY nice job fixing up the bad thing I did to that dash, Pat!!YberParticipantNovember 3, 2019 at 3:04 pmPost count: 157
Today was a GORGEOUS day in the San Luis Valley – so we took Lori’s 69 Ghia out for a Sunday drive and a nice lunch. Big smiles!!!John JonesKeymasterNovember 4, 2019 at 8:21 amPost count: 6471
Good looking ghia.. That interior looks all business!!!
Well, it’s time to do some more welding on this rig… I am gonna be all over it today!!! 😎 Our Wolfs Burg West order came in Saturday! 😎YberParticipantNovember 4, 2019 at 8:25 amPost count: 157

Well, I was going to say – hooray the metal work is done. But it sounds like the body work is no picnic…FranzKeymasterNovember 5, 2019 at 9:02 amPost count: 3476
