|496CHEVY3100||Make a paste with White vinegar and baking soda.use a small brush rince with warm water,it will look like new,,also works great on corroded electrical connections|

Get yourself a ball hone and a bucket of vinegar. After it is cleaned up rinse it with hot water followed by denatured alcohol or acetone. When it is dry paint it with some fuel proof paint on the inside or have it coated with a ceramic.
Caution: most paint is not fuel safe and fewer are safe with alcohol.

lets keep pushing.....radiator in and bonnet on.....
and heres the sweet spot for the lower radiator hose clamp
i had drilled the small hole into each hinge plate when i had the bonnet aligned before disassembly and it worked great, tomorrow i will fine tune the plunger rod alignment
give it a quick buff its been alone by itself for a while
the moment of truth and probably 30 feet of edges to chip

pick some more easy stuff of the low hanging fruit tree......fasten pipes to bulkhead, snap two wiring harnesses together, route safety gauge tubes
make life easy on your self and take your time sorting out the wires so they are nice and straight and then line up the striped wires so you can see both sides of the connector for easy identification in the future
i am plumbing the capillary tube up by the wiring harness it looks cleaner to me.
and lastly can some one confirm that the big fat 3/8 spade connector is for the heavy gauge solid yellow wire to "D" and that the small 1/4" spade connector is for the yellow/green wire to "F"

vacation, house projects and family events have had me preoccupied....
so today lets grab a low hanging fruit and get back in the swing of things....the horn install
we test every thing
put bullet connectors on
and done.....where the wires are exposed at the last 6 inches or so i used shrink tubing on it zip tied closed at the ends

|37ford4dr||thanks guys......all the body bolts are in, I had to use some contact cement on the lock washer and the nut for the front radiator duct panel body bolts....playing gumby at almost 59 with those front body bolts was challenging.....|

the body weighs about 375 lbs so its not too heavy the saw horse and jack stands looked scarier then it actually is
well my three week push to get the body on the chassis has come to a happy end....time to take a break for a little while and recharge the batteries
today i put most of the body bolts in , the gas tank is in and i got the brake master cylinder bracketry/pedals and MC in that is a PITA.
