I have to agree. I haven't installed many so it's easy to get turned around.

Finished up the e-brake under the dash today and connected some more wiring. IU started connecting the heater cables as well. I need a chiropractor

Thanks. I sometimes wish I had bought your 70 Swinger. Wonder what it would have looked like fully restored

Here's this weeks update


Steering column finally in, wiring hooked up, mocked up steering wheel. The original is being restored

Awaiting the wingwindow guide seals the the slide glass goes in

I'll start checking all the circits to insure everything is connected electrically next week. Then if there's no problems where the dash has top come out the front and back glass goes in

Awaiting a plug n play dizzy from Firecore. I decided to go that way so I don't have a bunch of extra wiring to deal with. After that we fire the motor, take it out and seat the rings. After that it's all down hill

Here's an update. I'm ready for the interior. The guys in the sjhop helped me with the side glass and the front and rear glass was installed week before last. My buddy Nick and Neal went ahead and installed the bumble bee stripe.

The carpet is layed out and ready for install. I'll need to install the oil and water temp gauges this weekend. I shout have the interior pretty much buttoned up this week. Then it's prime and fire the motor.I

Thanks. This will probably be my last one. They are fun to work on but my old bod screams after a dat on my knees or framed under the dash. Better to buy a good done car and make
small tweaks to personalize

Gosh, beautiful car. One of my first '68 Darts were Sunfire Yellow. I really liked it. The car was a 2-door post with a slant six, AC, and a black vinyl top. I sort of miss that car and often wonder where it is.

I want to do an R/T, but we'll see. I'm just now getting the Bee driveable. Maybe that will give me something to keep my left foot occupied while I work on something else. But anyway, it really looks great!
