    Good morning. Hope you had a merry Christmas Tom.

    Getting ready to order some parts today. Feel like weโ€™ve discussed most of the details. Although Iโ€™m not recalling any stereo talk.

    Do you want a stereo in this ride?

    Retro sound make some nice OG looking ones. Or we could do a hidden install and you can just Bluetooth from your phone?

    We will build it if it comes.

    I cleaned the all cable tubes really well with a wire/cloth and brake clean, so that they will function smooth as butter. Also, gathered up some missing hardware for clean up tomorrow.

    Gathered up seats this morning. Stripped then down for blasting. Few spring repairs along the way.ย 687B8AD7-A40F-42AB-B949-5FB794FD22DDA3AAE10F-8FBC-48E6-9D93-15173780EE63FA29509F-1B52-4332-88F3-50F90F6F2A11

    Dug seat side cover out of the KCW stash.ย 55563FCD-7B90-42F7-B453-9DEAA496B63F

    Your driver side seat back is incorrect. No lever or lug for the 66-67 side latch. Dug one out of my stash.

    WE NEED TO FIND a PASS side mech (latch, lever, & spring) . Can any one out there HELP???95D5F863-2BF6-4AF4-82AC-91FC63909A78

    Made it out to the booth and blasted everything. Paint tomorrow.ย 725A339A-75A7-464D-BF8F-FB1586F0CE8C9556F074-8935-4E21-9D49-B3097B22E90E

    Sand blasted and coated a bunch of original Kamax hardware. Itโ€™s going to be an epic assembly day tomorrow, Iโ€™m 100% prepared. Solid axle boots, FAG bearings.

    Our drag racing buddies, John Redding and Eric Madson have taught us to chamfer, round, and polish all of hard edges on the spade end of the axle. Thid is where they always break. Empi racing axles ready to go.

    The Bentley device book says to round the corners and edges of the fulcrum plates to prevent chipping. The plates with lines across the face are new over-sized. I will try to fit them first and measure clearance with a feeler gauge.
