haha....yeah man....get those diapers ready! Not only that,
but strap on a full on gas mask when changing. It's like nothing
you've ever witnessed. I'm long passed that stuff with my daughter,
but I will never forget the smell :shock:

Anyway, congrats in advance Ken. You'll make a great father,
and we all know that when your kid is 16, they'll most likely have the coolest car on the block :lol:

All of the guide tubes are changed now, thanks to some help from Keith (riffraff)! That was a major pain, but I think it will be worth it when it comes to re-assembly time. Thanks for your help, I would not have been able to do that job alone. That took longer than taking the body off the chassis.

Just the rear tophat, a couple little touch ups, and she's good to go for Friday.


what was you solution to the tube that fits inside the tophat shift rod hole
curious to your solution to that

I ended up cutting the originals out and using them. The top hats that Klassicfab makes now, include them.

For no reason other than for the hell of it decided to kick back and re-brows this thread today.

Kick - ass the one bit I took from this was the coated OG hardwear part and popped it on my 60' :D

Kick ass - looking forward to the 23 :D
