Looks like I am headed towards a roadworthy vehicle soon!

- Installed a seatbelt on the rear seat. Adjusted the driver's side muffler hanger
- Drove over to the local tennis courts to pick up my 9 year-old son. He enjoyed the ride home. However,
the muffler hanger on the driver's side failed on the way home (I knew it was flakey) So now I need to
buy one of those.
- Installed the Pass side roof weatherstrip moulding (the stainless part that the roof weatherstrip installs
- Installed the Pass side roof weatherstrip
- Installed Pass door weatherstrip
- Fabricated a couple of brackets to support the grill from the radiator support. I removed the existing
bracket as the fiberglass hood has a little larger overbite than the original hood. I think I will fab a small
sheet of aluminum. I am thinking of getting it engraved with some details on the restoration!

My progress doesn't seem like much for last evening, but my hands sure show it (3M black weatherstrip adhesive all over them- SWMBO says 'Don't touch me! Hehehe)
