Updated on January 1st, 2017.
Progress is steady but slow going due to the holidays and all the rain we been receiving lately.  Here are the latest pics.



Selecting only the best tail lights that I have.  All bulbs replaced and lubed with anti corrosion grease.  Lenses were also cleaned from the inside.





































All glass cleaned and ready for tinting.



















Ready to assemble the passenger door right in my living room.  Stay tuned!

Nice! What brand of weather strip is that? Do you know where I could get it from?

All the weather strip I have comes from S12's that were located at the local yards.

Dude, you giving me a serious case of ENVY! That is looking great! You sure picked some good parts from the junk yard dogs out there.

Progress is slow but steady.   Just a couple of more things to do on the outside then on to the engine bay.



Preparing to install hatch glass.







Aligning door with floor jack.





Bought these lift supports on ebay.



No more broom stick to hold this hatch open.





Connecting the rear wiper motor.







Both the plastic stoppers broke so I used the original screw and added a washer, nut and rubber grommet.























You can still buy this canister on ebay.  The bolts to mount the bracket for the canister are the same bolts to mount the driver side headlight assembly.























Stay tuned for the next phase.
