One thing at a time all in due time. I'm looking for a inside storage place my self.
The material was ordered this morning. There is no turning back now.Can you post a magnified picture of the material that you need? I was able to source the correct material from one of the restoration companies when I had the headliner done for my 1969 Cadillac. Most materials are still available if you know where to look for them.
Yep, and the wire colours in the wiring diagrams are only a suggestion.....The only sure way to track down superiors wiring is to start at one end and haing on all the way to the other. Every one i got into was wired with the same white wire threw out.
I agree. A good example is that in my car, there is a common ground wire in the wire loom for the front, rear, and side red flashing lights for a total of maybe 30 feet. This ground wire is connected to one light and all of the other lights are grounded directly to the body. This is OEM as there are no splices in this common ground wire except for that one light.The excess to me is the part i don't understand. In places it in the yard stick range. Lot of money there wasted.
i see you have the important tools for any home garage mechanic...a can of WD40 and a big hammer. Love it!Last summer I acquired some rear bumper bits and pieces.

The two pieces where the tail lights are located are in better shape than the ones currently on the car, so I will swap them when I get back to the car's bumper.
Two center plates were Included in the package. One with some damage, but with the end caps, the other one with no damage, but only one end cap. One of the center plate is longer than the other. Looking at original photos of my car, the proper center plate is the narrowere one.

The end caps will have to be sent to be rechromed and one will have to be fixed.

I do not know yet. There used to be s place in Halifax I used when I was restoring the 67, but I do not know if they are still open.Where do you get your chrome work done at? Are they reasonable? I'm paying $125/hr now at the place I use in Victoria. 1 hour minimum on any piece.
And a piece of pipe for when the breaker bar is not enough...i see you have the important tools for any home garage mechanic...a can of WD40 and a big hammer. Love it!
I contacted what i believe is the only place east of Québec that does this work and they do not do bumpers either. They would have to be sent to Québec or Ontario. I will send them detailed pictures of what I want done and they will give me a quote.None of it is cheap. The place i use averages out to around 125 a piece. But but he doesn't do bumpers. So they got sent to a place in Mn that only does bumpers. I paid less for a whole car and drove it home. That was after i fixed the damage on the rear one and cut it down from the stock to CB.
