spent some time working on the speedo today.the speedo was opened before the bezel was a bit rough.anyway opened it up there was a rubber gasket missing around the glass,i went to the local gasket shop they made some for me in various thicknesses cause i wasnt sure what would work.eventually settled on 2.5mm thick.cleaned the face and sanded it with 1200 grit cleaned it again..put a new decal on,would have been happy with the originals but it would look odd against the dual gauges.plan for tomorrow is paint the interior cream and see is i can get some rings cut to help me get the bezel back in shape with some gentle persuasion.tonite ill strip down and clean the cup,give it a shot of etch primer.got my seat back and sat it in .will have to make some small adjustments but it will work for the present
inside on the back of the face there were two dates written in pencil 1-19-48 and 2-11-56. rebuild dates ?

|Leakie||It always goes that way, if you plan on one day better figure it will take a week. That is why I keep putting off my interior so I can still drive it.|

why does it always snowball?
So I figured I would just knock out the front half and firewall.
Next thing ya know, the back seat etc. is out.
Why does this stuff always snowball, from a quick afternoon job, into a couple week project?
I am sure it will be worth it in the long run

This is what the tool looks like to remove the crank handle clips.... I have had mine for years , not sure where I got it,, it is a K-D tool. I believe I have seen them on EBay, not sure if Mac or Snapon would have them.

Should there be some kind of a gasket/seal on the old batt box cover?
It fits nice and tight, and I want to still be able to use it if needed (i don't know why)

Step 2) remove - bottom of back seat, front kick panels, and carpet (+pad and thin insulation).
Good news= still very soild, only some clean up needed.
Bad news = I have a bunch of little holes etc. to weld up.
