Been working on the front end stuff for the last few weeks. Bought some new front end trim pieces, grille, eyebrows, 327 script and below the headlight fill pieces. Not what I would call OEM quality at all, everything is REALLY THIN and bends with a touch. Also the fit leaves a lot to be desired. But what can you do? It is a driver anyway.
Still need to get an unbent front bumper, but this one is good enough for insurance sake.
Finished the scoop to hood work and got it painted, which shows areas needing a little more finish work. But it is on and covers the engine so - ok for now.
Turns out the power brake booster had a vacuum leak in it so had to send it out for a rebuild. If you need power brake work Karps Power Brake in Upland Ca. is family owned and been in business since 1984. They do it all including resleeveing of vintage 30's and up master cylinders and such.
Any once I get the booster back and in I can start on redoing the carb and timing of the engine with no vacuum leak to it.
Lately this thing has been Benjamin Franklin-ing me to death - way past the nickle and dime stage.
Also got the interior closer to done - it just goes on and on ........
