**CLICK ON PICS TO ENLARGE AND CLICK AGAIN TO SUPERSIZE**

This weekend, got the AC dryer mounted so I could determine where to mount the high output alternator fuse block. Got the block mounted as well as cutting and terminating the #4 alternator feed wire and covered it's clear jacket with black heat shrink along with the jumper wire up to the starter solenoid. Also shot a few pics of the process just so you guys know I'm really doing something.....
 
 
 
 
 

Next weekend, I'll blast and detail the AC dryer and get a few more little things checked off the TO DO list. I also have a body guy coming by to have a look and give me some numbers for the final body and paint. Fingers crossed it doesn't cut too deeply into the savings account!!!!

Been another couple weeks since I last updated so here's what's happened....

Weekend before last, I talked with the former painter at Far From Factory about final paint and bodywork and got the numbers to get her straight and shot, got the high output alternator charging cables....
 


the cruise control servo bracket reinstalled...
 
 


and blasted and painted the AC dryer.
 
 
 
 


Then home for date night with my lovely wife!

Last weekend, I trimmed and fit the battery mat to the tray and got a list together for the hardware I needed to order from AMK Products.

The hardware arrived from AML last week,
 


so this weekend, so I started pulling everything back apart to get the correct hardware installed and take care of any unresolved issues. First on the agenda was to get the fender to door opening filler panels taken care of, I created the templates to cut the rubber seals to close up the gap between the Torino fender profile and the Cougar panel profile and designed a retainer clip to secure the top of the fillers to the fender retention slotted opening....
 
 
 
 


Next week I hope to get the seals and clips cut so I can get the fenders rehung and the headlight buckets and header panel installed.
