    The hood pad was installed. Its a brand new hood pad the original was trashy so there was no way of saving and using it

    I just started on the engine compartment. I will also be converting to front disc brakes on the car. My front brakes locked and the only to stop this is put front disc brakes on the car. My previous '61 had front disc brakes and I never had this problem

    To any one who is on forward look web site I am using a Mac book air now and I have no way to resize the photos of my progress and post them there on the site and in my folder. You do have my permission to copy these photos and post them there to show the progress
