    Yeah no kidding. $0.70 per piece doesn’t sound like a lot of money...until you do the math. “Count the rivets”.

    FA436 or FA326 might work for your car too. I am not sure what you’ve got. Check out the catalog if you haven’t already.

    For the vent window gaskets try and find a car being parted out in a northern area of the world....somewhere that gets lots of rain and cold....the gaskets survive much better from these areas. I have read about people "rejuvenating" old gaskets with brake fluid??....but know nothing about the process.

    I too have to one day strip the old rock hard decals off my 68 T/C....glad to hear that the decal removal wheels work.

    Passenger side woodgrain is done for now.

    I found this double relay from passenger kickpanel. What is this for? I cant seem to find it from wiring diagrams. Rusted through and broken connectors.

    Installed a better 5th door handle too. Old one was badly pitted, shaft stuck and housing broken. I got the better from this forum, I can't remember who, but thanks :) Looks great and works smoothly now.

    Pitting looks like... war relic. Nice find.

    Dual relay - what has “twin” function? Electric windows? Tailgate? Better question - what stops working when relay is removed! Do you have a wiring diagram? Can you physically trace to fuse box? Color of wires?

    ...of course, in that condition, probably didn’t work before removal...
