Mike is shipping our seals today priority mail… 😎 He said all but a couple will be in the first box! Sweet.. I need a few seals.. 😎
I did get those aluminum strips that go over head in the jamb for the top if the window seal. all sanded, and polished and cleaned up!! ready for unstall.. But I am pretty sure, there is a seal that goes under it also…. 😎 So, on to the next item today…. Maybe I will get the wiper motor cleaned up and ready to install… but I need some wiper grommets… 😎 Probably the same as type 1… I might be able to find some… 😎John JonesKeymasterJuly 1, 2019 at 11:18 amPost count: 6471
These parts will Keep me busy for a while…. 😎 door stuff, mech’s and strikers around, cables window mech’s and door bars… I see I am missing a little roller piece on the window mech.. I bet I can find one… or.. maybe they come with my seals?? doubt that…. 😎
I hate to blast some of this stuff.. and most of it you can’t see.. but it needs to look as good as the rest of the car!!!!!Juan 59 DDWTParticipantJuly 1, 2019 at 2:57 pmPost count: 297

Are the vent trim pieces on the dash something that’s reproduced?
Justin..... that's Justin in Spanish.John JonesKeymasterJuly 4, 2019 at 8:16 amPost count: 6471
Late 59 thing…. it would normally had the top of the dash covered also, and those trimmed it out… Juan decided against covering it… I probably should have filled those holes for the trim…. but it slipped my mind… I guess, I could go backwards and fill em…. and touch up some paint in them…. I thought I would paint them and install and see how they looked… I like em,
But honestly… I was hoping it would slip right by without question… 😎 Now the question is what Juan thinks??? 😎 😎Pat KKeymasterJuly 4, 2019 at 2:10 pmPost count: 1315
We had a couple discussion about this.
I feel you get the sexy early dash look and respect what was OG to the car.
We will build it if it comes.Juan 59 DDWTParticipantJuly 4, 2019 at 10:15 pmPost count: 297
This a 1960 dash.
John, could I call you tomorrow morning with some questions on early and late dashes before I decide what to do?Juan 59 DDWTParticipantJuly 5, 2019 at 11:58 amPost count: 297
After the call to John, I decided to leave the trim pieces on the dash,.. carry on with the rig,… 👍John JonesKeymasterJuly 6, 2019 at 10:35 amPost count: 6471
I tried to take a couple pics with better light… It’s kinda dark in the clean shop right where the car is… everything is going great…. More progress this week… I’m surprised the seals didn’t show up yet.. Monday…Juan 59 DDWTParticipantJuly 6, 2019 at 8:26 pmPost count: 297
