Re: ParB's 72 Orange Jimmy

I had plans to spend this past week working on a bunch of minor stuff for my Jimmy. But alas the real world made these plans irrelevant, as my mother in law passed away unexpectedly on June 30th. I spent all week making funeral arrangements, emptying her apartment and closing her affairs. She was 91 so it wasn't unexpected in the general sense, but it was sudden due to a heart attack.

I nonetheless have an update on the truck. Thomas of classic gauge and cluster had finished the rebuild of the instrument cluster. I think it came out really nice!

Re: ParB's 72 Orange Jimmy

This Jimmy came with the manual throttle option. I am preserving the option (but I left the throttle cable unattached). It installs into the hole at the upper right corner of the cluster.

Thomas does great work, I can't wait to see the cluster in person!

Re: ParB's 72 Orange Jimmy

Sorry to hear about the loss of your mother in law. Hope she didn't suffer.

Glad to see the updates. Tom does really good work.

Have the arms chromed and check out Electroplating of El Paso: good work fair prices.
