    Small progress

    Update: slow week, removed both fr t/s assemblies to rewire and repair grounds, also removed both headlamp assemblies to check wiring and grounds. Attempted to remove floor panel to check out master cylinder, all the bolts holding it came out, but realized I needed to disconnect throttle linkage. didn't want to jack vehicle up yet.
  3. My book shows 217.8 cu. in comp ratio: 46-48 = 6.8 to 1, 49-52 = 7.0 to 1, 53-54 = 7.1 to 1

    Small progress

    Inhibited by 4 weeks of hernia recovery time, I am limited to lite duty repairs on the car. So far I have repaired and painted the steering wheel, installed period correct headlamp relay, repair LF +LR lower inner door panels, removed cluster to clean old black material from glass, disassembled dash lite dimmer to clean contacts, today I removed the fuel sender(was stuck on full) , removed rust, cleaned contact and siphoned fuel from tank, reinstalled sender, also removed R. t/l assembly to clean ground surface for proper operation. Baby steps until I get the OK to dive in!!!
  7. I installed a period correct relay(Blue Streak) with a minor change. The relay is between the light switch and dimmer as opposed to between the dimmer and hi beam only lights. This way it works for low and hi beam. During the process I found the nut securing the bat feed to the light switch was LOOSE!!!! Did not have to cut or modify any existing wires or terminals, just added a ground and feed wire for the system.
  8. I retired after 45 yrs. as a Nissan technician. In the short time I have joined this group, I have gathered more useful info in preparation of getting my Plymouth road worthy than I could ever imagined. You guys are great. Thank you

    Door panels

    Thanks Sniper, I googled it and it took me to the video which gave the info where to order them. I'll have plenty if anyone needs any. they look a lot easier to use than the original clips.
  12. Thanks guys for all the help. I ended up w/ Rustoleum French Beige and then satin clear coat. I'll get some pictures after I get it back in the car.
