Fabricated the 3/8 aluminum kill switch rod and installed today. Perfect fit.
Excellent work!Beautiful car! kill switch knob looks like one I had on an old riding mower.
—- Funny thing, It’s off my drill press! Got the proper one on order at Fastenal.
More time spent on the Dart on this day before Christmas. I sure dreaded doing this headliner install and still got to do some steaming. I feel like I just went a couple rounds with Mike Tyson! Damn roll bar made it X10 worse. Merry Christmas !
If you can get the ehadliner installed so well with a rollbar, you must be a whiz at it without. Looks great! Merry Christmas to you also! Bob
---- Merry Christmas Bob! Getting the roofliner over the bar with the bows was brutal. The sail panels ended up stuck together (they had 2 good coats of glue on them) going over the roll bar, and getting those pryed apart was a challenge. Glad nothing ripped! Just had to keep at it and eventually it came around. Trimming here, cutting back the listing there, it slowly came around. There's a few minor wrinkles and the steamer is going to take care of those. Sure glad the worst of the headliner is over now. Perfect Christmas gift to me! Oh and,
Last post for 2019 on the Dart. Here’s where I got to. Roof liner in, package tray in place, rear side windows installed. The original trunk board still has the assembly line chalk writing. No clue what it meant. Dash cap fit, installed. Front and rear window trim reinstalled. Side door glass and vent reinstalled. Long process to get it all fitting. And that’s it for this year. Jan 1, 2020. Getting close. Hemi time.
the roof/side shot just makes my heart go pitter/patter. it's so perfect...almost like you could reach down and pick it up. Magnificent work! A happy and healthy New Year to you!
Going together. Dash cap installed. Nice fit, neat. Spent time building a tach mount. Good and study, no wires across the dash. Thinking of finishing it in satin black rather than aluminum??? All original door panels re-used. All in mint shape. Everything tested and working. Next up, rug, and seat upholstery arrives this week.
I vote yes to satin black finish.
—- Thanks Abdywgn. I went with your choice. All ties together nicely now. much better.
Been working on the Dart as usual. Some pictures. Door panels on. These are the originals. Rug installed. Offset master cylinder fit, ready for bleeding. Digging into the seats, build sheet had a better day. Rear seat is finished and in place. New Foam for the front buckets going on. One bucket finished one to go. Old material sure tears easy with a good pull.
Looks great! Is that an air filter next to the sand blast cabinet?
--- Abdywgn that's soffit material, boxed in the stairs with it. Both buckets finished today. Refinished the bases, will be bolted on and seats in tomorrow.
Thank-you, I see that now but my imagination envisioned it as an air filter to remove any dust from the blast cabinet. Hmm, might be something I could incorporate in my garage...or just turn the fan on and open a window.
And that pretty much wraps up the interior. Buckets finished and installed. Door bars not a problem whatsoever Seat belt harnesses to go in and that's about it. AAR emailed today too, hood & scoop is ready to ship.
Today the rad got fit into place, transmission lines ran from cooler to trans position and horns relocated ahead of the rad support. AAR hood and hemi scoop is being shipped and is next Up on the list.
AAR hood and scoop showed up today. Time to get busy. Completely satisfied with this fiberglass. The front bumper got a new plate today.
Ready to sell yet? Lol!
are you taking reservations for rides?
Scoop install and hood fitting time. AAR. Fantastic fit. Supports install next up. Can't believe how well this fiberglass is made.
----- It will be a ride to remember abdywgn!
better get a passport! when does the rocket leave? Bob
---- No flights scheduled. I'm enjoying every step of the build and dragging it out.
Today the hood pins and height adjusters on all 4 corners got set and trim installed across the front. Went with 3 studs, I like the look and the more rigidity the better. Adjustable, collars will be made once final measurements are taken. Used JB weld to locate the studs to the underside of the scoop, tomorrow the scoop can come back off and the studs will get solidly escapulated into the scoop.
