These are some of the piece, they came out a little too shiny for my liking but they will be fine.

Well I had to get out there for my five minutes so I got the chrome for the trim panels all cleaned up and installed them on the rears. You may notice a little discoloration on my trunk floor right in the center, it't tranny fluid from the friggin top pump! Damn think is leaking bad and I haven't been able to figure out where. It may be in a hose, CRAP.

Thanks. Yes it's paint... but it took me over 50 years of practice to get to this point. :-)~

Finally got around to building the inner firewall on the Austin. It's just had foil backed sound deadener on it all summer, and looked pretty tacky. I made cardboard templates to fit around everything, and then traced them to some 1/4" finished plywood. After cutting them out with the jigsaw I covere them with carpetting, and installed magnetic latches on the back. Then matching strikes on the firewall with clips to set the interior panels off about 1.5" from the firewall. Should also help insulate from heat and sound too.
I made them in 3 pieces so I can remove them easily for maintenance, or to run any further wiring I need behind them.
This winter I'll pull the seats back out and with the rest of the carpet remnant I bought, I'll cover the wool felt and sound deadener I have on the floors.

Ok, today I am trying to figure out where this tranny fluid is leaking out of my top motor or hoses. I put a perfectly clean, white paper towel under it, run the top up and down a few times and nothing, not a drip. Leave it for a while and check, again, nothing, not a spot on that paper towel. I leave it for a day and come back and the towel is soaked and half the fluid has drained out of the reservoir.

Any ideas? All I can think of is just checking it more, every hour or so, that is what I am doing right now.

Why don't you put the top partially up and leave it in that position. It should put more pressure on the system and maybe you'll see your leak.
If not, fill it with rice. It use to work on Model T radiators. Ought to work on a old Buick. BB

I think it's leaking internally from the reservoir to the electric motor, Looks like I will be pulling it apart again.

Haven't been working on anything automotive this summer. We bought an 18' pontoon boat and a 25' fifth wheel camper, (both used) so it has been a summer of fun for a retired couple. Of course, I did have to do a little work on both to bring them up to my high standards. Wife said that it has been the best summer of her life. Happy wife = happy life. BTW, I have been reading this post regularly to see what all you guys have been up to. Big Al
