I got a few used parts to put on the car. You can't have a race car without a few used parts. In my car I always have something in it that is from my lost friend and partner in crime, Jerry Newsom. I saved myself a few bucks but the best part was the waking and searching.

Surprise, I found a serial # on the car in two places. Had local dealership punch it in and zero information returned. Its like it never was made

Now entering the phase of, is this protected enough from potential over spray. Is this tight and finished or do I need to revisit.

A tip of the hat to my parts guy at the local dealership. He has helped me find the unusual parts, like the threaded backup plate for the hood hinges.

Goal today: fused test wiring harness for the car.

We have brakes and got the passenger window adjusted so the window fits inside the weather striping. That was all the "fun" a person wanted to have in an afternoon. I had to retrain the plastic windows.
