    Thanks for the information mate - that will be a very useful reference for the future. maybe it should be a little technical thread on it's own.

    Thanks Guys! Glad you like it!

    After waiting several weeks I got the call that the Oval Air cleaners were finished and fully restored. Took my breath away when I got home and put them on. I just had to see what it looked like! Nothing beats original OEM parts brought back to better than new condition. I had no intentions of putting the stickers on since assembly line Christine did't have them. I also got a set of washer bag brackets from John Fowlie and wasted no time in getting them straightened, cleaned and coated. The motor has been dialed in and the cam has been broken in as well. I'll be back at her next spring and hope to drive her next summer. :)

    Nice photos mate - great reference for the rest of us to do our own detailing.

    Where did you get the washer bag from?

    Amazing photos!! I'm going to have to go through your thread in check this car out!!

    Like Whizzy said, where did the Jiffy Jet bag come from? Repop?

    Glad you like it. :) The washer bag is a reproduction I bought from Gary Goers. He also supplied the new washer bag cap. The only negative so far is the exhaust manifold coating. It failed and they've already started rusting after running the motor in. I'll have to find a better alternative down the road.

    In case anyone's interested my car has her own facebook page now..

    As soon as things thaw out here from the long cold winter I'll be kicking this build into overdrive and updating the FB page regularly. Please "Like & Share"!!!
    She's close to completion now and a concerted effort should get her 100% completed by this spring/summer.

    Here's the "To Do" list...

    2.) R&R rear leaf springs. (One failed and is sagging)

    3.) Complete rear disc brake conversion, bleed brakes and inspect system.

    4.) Order new tires from Universal Vintage Tire (2 1/4" Whitewall 800R14 American Classic bias look radial tires SKU# U700302)

    5.) R&R push button shifter cable for correct length reproduction cable.

    6.) Final fitment and adjustment of exhaust system.

    7.) Install rear glass

    8.) Send out anodized parts for restoration & install.

    9.) Rechrome bumpers and Wings & install.

    10.) Install sport tone trim, hood emblem, fender spears & remaining stainless.

    11.) Alignment.

    12.) Custom interior design and installation (Using complete original fury interior for patterns.)

    13.) Test Drive

    15.) Hunt down the shitters...
