    I have mine back at the home garage, though these pics are taken at the secured spot, where the car sat for two nights.

    Everything did go flawlessly during the last two days. Friday I was at the monthly Vantaa cruise-in and yesterday at the annual Lakeside cruising.

    These photos are taken at the cruising after party, which was held at a local garage complex (three big garages).

    Each and everyone, who came at the last stop guessed the vehicle these parts are from and it was told later that night: a Dodge Fast Four from 1928.

    No correct guesses, later during the night the cruise leader (he led it for quite a length with his customized 52 Buick) sent a message to the owner of the parts.

    Nobody did win anything because the parts were there on the floor just to show them. One of the local hobbyists said that they should have taken bets as those parts were surprisingly interesting.

    Yesterday I&dad did go at the annual Yankee Car Show and Lahti cruising held almost every month. Later we teamed up with @Finn Yorker.

    Sorry but I've explained it a million times before... those for pieces of crap that are on ALL '73 Mopars DO NOT belong there! All it was, was an appeasement to the moronic dictates of the Fed's. They offer NO real protection in any type of crash. The design of the Imperial, Chryslers, Plymouth and Dodges' only suffer from those late, add on appendages.

    I have shown time and time again how awesome the design of the bumpers look without those pieces of crap bolted on, and i urge all owners of such cars to remove them and replace them with stainless or chrome bumper bolts as the designers truly meant them to be. FEDS BE DAMNED!
    Rant over.
    LOL.

    But it's handy when the gas cap is on top of either of the rear bumper guards. After refueling there's no need for stretching to the pavement. If the rears were on, the fronts should be on, too.

    I use the gas cap to prop the gas door/number plate open.

    I´ll install the "new" power steering pump once I find a correct pressure hose.

    2.10.2019 011.jpg
    It´ll be nicer because the pulley on it is smaller than on the old pump, which is shown below.

    The driver´s door panel came off as the side mirror is quite loosely attached its base.

    I don't know Jay... That pulley looks awfully small. You sure that's a good move? That pump will be spinning twice as fast as the old one.
