I had a couple of original style A/C sets that I took out of wrecking yards back in the 90's so I went back original except for the compressor - sanden and bought a new/larger condenser, evaporator and heater core.
The electrical problems ended up being the tail lights were not grounded properly.
The electric steering assist and hydraulic clutch work great so far, but I have not driven it more than 10 feet as of yet.
I have Army duty the next two weeks, so July should be the test drive month! I should have the seats in by that time.
OK so Monday night after work I am driving down to my parents and Tuesday I am going to test drive the car.
I really need to get it running and drive it a little to make sure the transmission, brakes, engine are all good. Last time the car ran was 16 months ago! that is when I drove it out of the shop onto a trailer to take it back to the paint shop to get the fenders/hood/ etc. painted and put on.
The lower back panel (finned aluminum piece) is not painted yet so the tail lights are setting in the trunk.
I have been busier than a one legged man at a butt kicking contest for 3 years now - and I work with my wife (also the other veterinarian and business partner - BTW never sleep with your business partner.) 😂
I have all kinds of opportunities to get into trouble and be assigned honeydews" 24/7.
My friend has multiple high dollar cars that he is also currently working on so my stuff has been on a back burner the last year.
He is doing a great job with the paint and I really appreciate his attention to detail, but I have got to get the car back. I can only get down there once every few months to work on the interior so it has been going slowly.
He really is a great person and does immaculate work. It is one of the top 10 shops in the country for 1920-1930's Rolls Royce, Bentley, Auburn and Cords.
I am just anxious to get the car back and finish the project.
I will take a video of her running and try to get a good photo with the new wheels on.
