Well, with Knott's only 48 hours away, I've still got some more wrenching to do. I will be cutting off the board at noon today and getting done. See you all there on Sunday.

Last night I played with the alternator (see other post) and completed installation of the dash pad, completed by upholstery of the interior of the glovebox, installed the glovebox, glovebox door and adjusted the door. Interior looks really nice now.

Items left to compete: Pick up and install hood
Fabricate and install hood scoop screen
Install driver's side tailpipe hanger
Vacuum interior (I'm getting those new carpet fuzzbunnies)
Polish driver's side wheels
Try to adjust passenger side view mirror
Select some cassettes and CDs for the 500 miles I will put on the car this weekend.
Clean up car

Hey Steve, I look forward to seeing you at the show, can't wait to see your ride.
By the way that 64 Imperial with the pushbutton trans was traded for a '71 coupe last friday. It is is now my daily driver.(after shocks, motor mount, door handle and door alighnment.) I think it was a good deal, a crappy Mopar for a decent Mustang.

Those Imperials are really M60 Tanks in disguise. they siply kick ass in demolition derbies. Also, I have always considered a convertible BFMopar as a vegas Cruise machine hehehe. Remember, everything has its purpose.

Steve,

Your car is looking fantastic. You must be the fastest mechanic in the West, or you are putting in more hours than the law will allow on this thing.

You say you are doing something with the hood? "Pick up and install hood" What is that?

Not Knotts, but our big show up here is Mustang Round-up in July (1800 Stangs last year!). My goal for completing my 66 was the Friday pony trails cruise of the show. I was up half the night finishing up, but I made it! Kept my fingers crossed throught ~200 miles of cruizing (would have been embarrasing to break down in front of the other ~220 stangs on the cruize), but she made it the whole way! Good luck, and keep your fingers crossed!

By the way, I've said it before and I'll say it again, the color combo you picked for your coupe is absolutely stunning without going overboard. Good job!
