Today I started removing the remainder of the sealer from the front windshield channel using a wire wheel in a drill.

Today I finished cleaning the rest of the sealer from the front windshield channel. Now I just need to repair a few rust holes in the l/s windshield post.

Over this past weekend I cleaned all the old gunk off the brackets for the bolt in windows & replaced all the plastic bushings, they are now ready to install.

Mike, it's been a month or so, did the weather up there get so bad you had to put it on hold for a while or have you been charging forward?

Was reading about that petronix looks like they have quite a product, like adding some electronic control to a manual distributor!

I am waiting on getting the engine back from the re-builder & it should be back to me in the next week or two, & my wife & I had some minor health issues. The health issues & the engine have slowed the progress to a slow crawl for now.

Yesterday I started welding in the patch pieces I made for the l./s windshield post & all was going good until I ran out of welding wire. Two more holes to fix, which will wait until next weekend.

I hate running out of wire and or gas! Since I live way back in the woods I like to keep a spare roll of wire and two smaller bottles of argon/c02 instead of one large bottle. With the two bottles I know when I need a refill so I wont run out in the middle of a weld!

Nice work thus far, keep it up!! keep at it!
