    Been all over the car today hooking things up. Putting parts on in general.

    JJ has been working on the nightmare kg style window trim rear window.

    Pat took tires for mounting this morning. They look great. Just like a tuxedo.

    I made seals for the air filter. It looks like ww has a decal in stock. Part number zvw26 is correct? Should we paint and install a new decal?

    Good of day today. Pat started on side glass too.

    At the end of the day we slapped the rear window in and pushed it out in the sun.

    One of us got our “right side” confused.

    Replacement dash grab handle gaskets made it. He even sent two….of the wrong side.🤢

    We got the quarter window glass in yesterday. CCBF4302-3D47-4B96-BD8E-FFBE31CFE52001D99FAC-F969-49ED-865C-2289CFFC9E46

    We were missing the divider bars for the quarters. JJ has a rough pair that we’ll use to get everything fit until replacements arrive.3D06FE7B-B33F-4FA4-8B7E-7CE570C1B7AE

    Moved onto window mechs. Looking through the manual we learned about something new. Anyone used brake cylinder paste before?5C0DF5B6-A8D6-48C4-B10F-ADED7EF35883

    Drivers side window mech was slightly bent and missing a roller. JJ had one of those in the stash also. 1D50177C-CFFF-42DE-A6BB-966E657002FBAB0DB818-D443-499E-A111-6F9A50A5A84D

    Were gettin’ there….Going to get door glass in today. ….We started talking about a first drive later this week!
