Re: Intro and Some Photos of my '63 Project

After being way over center on my door adjustments trying to make the aftermarket door weatherstrip work, I installed a Honda push-on weatherstrip, removed all of the shims from the hinges, and adjusted all four hinge mounts and striker. Finally, success and the door opens and closes with ease...

Re: Intro and Some Photos of my '63 Project

My powder coater said that he could match my paint color for a few smaller items. So, I handed him parts of my Chassisworks dual 15 lbs. nitrous bottle bracket:

Re: Intro and Some Photos of my '63 Project

When there's a heatwave in my area, for some reason my parts are ready for paint and body work...ugh. Finished my little dash extension for the A/C vents and a couple of other items to be named later...

Re: Intro and Some Photos of my '63 Project

Thanks! I mocked up my old Chevrolet Deluxe tissue dispenser...I had thought of selling it over the years, but I think I'll keep it for the truck...

Re: Intro and Some Photos of my '63 Project

Thank you! I got some stuff back from coating and started to mock tank and bottle placements. Some calculation suggested I had a couple of gallons of air volume for the air suspension, so I need to locate the 3 gal. tank to the converted 15 lb. nitrous bottle to an air tank:

Re: Intro and Some Photos of my '63 Project

Thanks! I had to shift focus on my '63 Tempest convertible project since I got the Pontiac Trophy 4 (half a 389) 195 ci machining done, a cam from Bullet Racing delivered, and some goodies from Crower.

Re: Intro and Some Photos of my '63 Project

The storms and heavy rain have me working on the C10 this weekend. I was able to set the wing window and door glass and get the Nu Relics power unit installed and tested.
