Put lower shrouds back on Gem today.

Actually needed heater recently.

Tired of bellows failing on me.

Went with no damper doors.

It is good enough for CA.

In the last week, got the front struts rod bushings replaced, followed up with a 4 wheel alignment at the local small town tire and alignment shop. Handles much better and my tire wear should be more even.

Finished up the bench seats that came in Crusty.

Thanks to motohead for really nice seat tracks.

CA Corvair for the side trim and pivot covers.

Clark's provided all the pivot small pieces.

The pivot caps are tricky...easy does it!!

Rick stopped by to look over the brake installations on the More Door and help bleed and adjust the brakes. Found a couple of adjusters not working as well as they should. It took some time and swapping of parts with my loose parts to get them working.

Brakes were bled and final adjustments made to get better pedal, but pedal was still not right. We found the pedal was 1/4" off the bumper. Adjusted MC rod so there was 0.010" clearance to bumper. Pedal is now at expected height when depressed. Reset brake light switch for new pedal position.

Tires/wheels installed and hub caps installed.

Next up PG Shift Cable.
