Doing interior work today, and failing miserably. Headliner bows won't slide in, the "pockets" are too small. Oh well... some updated pictures in the meantime.

I kind of got sidetracked with other things. This car is a hard starting SOB. I need to figure out why. It will not start cold unless I spray starting fluid into the carburetor. Once running, it's great. Also, having issues getting fluid to the front calipers. I am going to start working on it again this weekend. It's so close, but being a royal thorn in my side.

I was able to resolve the hard start issue, finally found the proper choke rod and box through a vendor. Trouble shot the brakes, loose fitting on the proportioning valve and a bad master cylinder. Now, trying to figure out where the draw in the electrical system is. I also removed the 3.07 geared rear axle and swapped in a freshly rebuilt 3.55 unit.
