    The gauges are something else I just finished up, but hadn't posted about.
    The two outer ones are Glowshift oil pressure, and Volt meter. The center is my Innovate Air/Fuel ratio gauge. They are all mounted in Glowshift metal 2-1/16" pods. They have some plastic pods too, but they mount differently and would hang just a bit lower.
    Here's a couple more pics.

          Solved the leaks. I installed new lines that were perfectly straight going into the wheel cylinder, still leaking. I dug up the old lines and found they had an adapter. Tried the adapter, and voila!! No more leak.

              You’re right, it was kinked a little. I did use a bender, but with my lack of skill and it being such a tight space, I did a little persuasion by hand. I ended up getting longer lines and the bends look much better.

                the wife and I joined a drive-by birthday parade to celebrate a 100 year old Floyd’s birthday. He is a WWII veteran and his planned party was killed by the Wuhan virus. The VFW and American Legion put together a quickie parade and we had about 100 cars. Floyd sat out in his driveway with his family as we drove by waving and honking. The neighbors all came out to join in after they saw the commotion we made. Happy birthday Floyd and thanks for your service! BTW, we were in our 1967 Barracuda and we had the top down.

                  Damn Gerald, where did you find that 40 year old picture!!!!

                  Luckily I got a haircut right before all this started. I need one but I can go a little longer.

                    The wife “Mel” cut today in the driveway. Took me 10 minutes on full power of the blower to blow them damn curl’s away. Man, I feel better with a cut and shave!

                      Makes you wonder why I pay $15 for a cut every month. She did just as good if not better! You-tube can teach anything! We had the clipper stuff for at least 20 years and it survived a house fire to sit in the closet just to be used today!

                        Over the few Sunny Days that we have had so far..... Removed the Rally's from my 72 Dumpster, cleaned, sanded, spray painted with MOPAR Rally Silver and mounted them on the Dart, w/new acorn lugnuts. Finished upgrading Electronic ignition wiring under the hood, mounted spark unit, plugs, plug wires and installed electric choke. New motor mounts came in last week.

                              I’ve cut my own hair for more than 20 years. I don’t even think about barbers anymore. With a good set of clippers, a few mirrors, and some beers for courage, good to go!!

                                There is a Mopar Performance air cleaner lid (that I do not have...), but I found this "no logo" lid I prefer and custom ordered the "318 High Performance" decal for it...

                                          Got some MUCH needed seat time today. Pulled the Dart GT out of hibernation, checked all the fluids, aired up the tires and just drove around with no particular place to go (except the gas station).

                                            Went to my favorite speed shop and grabbed the last bit of stuff for my engine. My daughter came with me! She likes the Duster but wants a Challenger like her Grammas!
