One more project to move on out. The 1947 Farmall A tractor. I will find someone for that project also.

Leaves me with the Monza Coupe numerous open tasks, The Big Valve Engine, The Mouse House 110 & the 68 Camaro Coupe to put the interior back in.

Never did hear again from the buyer of the motorcycle. So before we left for vacation, we moved the Greenbrier into the carport ready to be worked again. We will work it again and do final tasks to get it running soon.

A new task arose on it. The gas pedal is very difficult to move. It seems to be frozen up in the front. The van has the newer style throttle system at the front floorboard. Anyone seen this before and have any tips to clear the issue?

I have picked up the FC windshield I committed to buy back in March. I have the seal and stainless retainers stored in the van already. We will contact a friend to arrange installation when we get back home.

Picked up the FC gas tank from Caveman Pete today. I have given up on the person who was all talk about trading an LS engine/tranny package for the van. Never heard a peep from him again. Work will continue on van after Mouse House 110 engine has been run. I will get windshield installed following our return home.

We pulled the windshield out of the van last week. Need to treat and paint dash and window gram area. No rust on frame but 3 colors of paint. There is surface rust on dash by windshield edge.

Also received kit from Clark's to install gas tank.

We did paint the dash a nice brush nickel finish which is close to the original fawn that was on the dash. That was done a few weeks ago when it was warm. Today it was warm enough to paint the windshield frame a Garnet Red. Something that at least has some look to it instead of that dull burgundy. Windshield rubber will cover 99% of the new paint. We are planning windshield install next week.

Junkman:

Mine is available. Still not finished, but not that far away from running road worthy vehicle.

See what has been done by reading through the below link. It also says what has to be done. I have a spread sheet of parts that have been installed. That is removed, reconditioned and reinstalled or new parts installed.

Installed seal and trim on new windshield. It will be installed today by a professional and myself. At least the professional has experience with rubber seal windshield installations. I have no experience. But Donna and I did figure out how the seal and trim went on using Dave Motohead's video.

After several scheduling attempts, finally got the professional here for install. Took some time but we slowly got the windshield installed. I still need one trim clip for the left side. A piece of aluminum tape is used in place fight now.

Next is the gas tank and clean out the fuel line.
