We're creeping closer to completion of the "Bad Brit" ........... into the stage of finding out which of our great ideas don't really fit or line up exactly as we had planned

Wiring, wiring, wiring ..........

Since we have decided for an "old" style hot rod, we have some extra things to accomplish ........... correct speedo gear for the tranny (since we are using an old style speedo rather than an electronic) ........ oil pressure line for non-electronic gauge, etc., etc. ........... steering has all been re-installed and adjustments made for proper handling

Fiberglas Trends nose has been mounted and semi-positioned ......... positioning straps have been fabricated and installed .......... back side of nose has been sprayed with Dynamat

Posted Image

Grills have all been attached and lined up ............ all lights have been mounted, wired, and tested .......... the headlights have not been adjusted yet ........ that won't happen until everything is shimmed into proper alignment

Final adjustments have been made to the interior panels ......... only the header panel above the windshield remains to be fabricated and painted

We still have some problem areas which we will be adressing this week ......... the left door continues to hit the door jamb ......... Josh will remove the hinges and modify them to allow for more adjustment ..... that means the hinges will have to be repainted ............ the windshield and door glass will be installed and the urethane will be allowed to cure for 48 hours ........... then the gauges can all be hooked up and the dash installed .......... I am going to have to install a new pan gasket on the Turbo-Hydro 350 as it has started leaking (will do a rubber gasket this time instead of a cork) ........... still have to install the drop-down license plate holder ........... adjust all the door fasteners and pole braces ......... the final assembly check list is five typewritten pages long ............ but hopefully we'll be through this month **)

I don't know about the Camaro .......... was originally intended to be a Pro Street ......... then it got put on a back burner because of the '32 five window .?. .?.
