Re: Attempting my first build 72 K5

We got the new body bushing kit from Wes and it now sits up much higher. The bracket I'm running along side the valve covers is still hitting the firewall so I'm going to find a different solution to routing the wires.

If anybody is on the fence of getting poly mounts or the ones made from Wes, do yourself a favor and go with the latter.

I forgot to take a pic when I was at the shop earlier of the wires hitting the fire wall but I have some other progress pics

Mounted the top to align doors, etc. and began repair work on many cracks (more than I originally thought). The windows have this aftermarket tint, but I'm going to remove it and leave it with the factory green tint.

Re: Attempting my first build 72 K5

The drivers side door towards the fender has an abnormal gap (maybe material missing? ) I made indentation marks where you can see the gap that I'm referring to. Other than this area the gaps are eve. We're kind of puzzled as to what gives.

Re: Attempting my first build 72 K5

Thumbs up Mike. I'm at a loss to explain the gap - maybe the door edge got slightly tweaked? I'd probably never notice it - will be lost in the beauty of the remainder.

Thanks Brad. We're starting to move. They want it out of the shop as much as I want to be driving it so we have motivation on both sides now!

Yeah, that could be. You can actually feel where the gap is and it sort of fades in like material was shaved off. I went back to look for an old pic and I can see the same size gap from before I tore it all apart. If they can't make any better by the weekend, I'm just going to say the hell with it. We're trying to get the exterior painted this week.

They should be able to fix that easily.
