Figured some of you would like to know how my repairs are coming. This is after an accident in Encinitas, California.

First, the steering box has been replaced by a new chrome Flaming River unit.. Thanks to Ted Brown, I put spacers in the front end components as required to releave a bind, Six total spacers installed, two on the drag link and 4 on the tierod. Made a new drag ling using the 1" stock I had. .250 wall DOM tubing.

Redid the portion of the body where the wood meets the fiberglass. Made two angles and screwed them into the firewall and the frame. Then I made rad supports from 1/2" lumnum solid stock. Drilled out two dowels and installed number 12 SS wood screws, then plugged with wood plugs. Headlight stand is done and tomorrow I pull new wires for headlights and park lights.

Newer Borgeson u-joints call for a chamfer on the set screw holes, did that. Set screws installed with blue Locktite and them cool lock nuts that are resuable up to 10 times.

New items include a hand laced leather limiter strap on the rear door and a battery cut-off switch.

Should be ready for a little cruise Saturday to a cool Irish Pub and restaurant. I'll get [ictures to Lumen Al and try to get them posted.

Good to hear, I especally like the Irish Pub idea. When I was in Ireland I found that the Pubs have the best food ( Pub Grub ).
And also, No more hard stops ... :hand:
