Nice find!!

Up on top the road is actually above the clouds!



Probably about 40 miles of twisties

and then coming back down through the clouds:



Man am I glad I did that.

Yes exactly, it was Memorial Day so the shooting range was getting a lot of use.

The hood is in Oakland waiting for a bus with lots of room that is heading south. Once it gets to Santa Barbara you can expect a lot of new photos! Can't wait

I need to find my old pictures of similar view. Mountains look like islands surrounded by clouds .. I miss that drive... except when the road got washed away and wife and I had to go through Buelton to get to SB ..50miles each way.... that was not fun.

Cant wait to see pictures!

I love tower paint. Be sure and spray it nice and thick, but don't run it!

if you do get runs, grab a tube of glazing putty, when your paint is ready to be wet sanded, skim over the run with glazing putty to surround the run, then wet sand on that until the putty is gone, that way you really only sand on the high of the run and wont burn through surrounding paint.

Waiting on the paint to arrive for the hood. In the mean time a few parts that I ordered from VP showed up:



This is the little plastic trim that goes above the dash. You can tell that mine was really shot.

I also ordered new door switches so that the overhead lights would work as designed...



Not so fast, the new parts wont fit in the doors and take two wires instead of the single that came on the car. Gotta decide what to do now.

Both the contacts on that switch go to ground with the door open. The single terminal switch is NLA, so you have to use the later switch that has 2 terminals. One is for the dome light, the other is for the seat belt interlock system which your car doesn't have.

I appreciate that Marc, but since I already have these I will probably just continue on that route!

Finally had some free time to paint the new hood.



I still need to sand and polish but I want to give the new paint to really dry before I start working on it. Its a really good match for the factory paint:

I wet sanded it with 1500 which left me with a relatively flat surface. I ordered some 3000 so I can work on getting it to shine
