    The drivers side of a forward look sitting very patiently in a garage waiting for the engine to be stated but the electronic ignition needs to be installed I even purchased a forward look license plate for the front and I got it from the forward look website store or should I put the Alabama Crimson tide plate on instead.
    I will admit seeing this car black is starting to give me closure on the 1 that burned . I even told my dad he could take it to Florida for a car show but he does not want to tow a car on the trailer because of the fuel economy.

    My inner drivers door handle will not return to its place after I open the door. I was told the spring is broken does any one here have a spare spring they can sell and please let my know the price plus shipping. I am talking about the inner door handle not the outer. Here is a video showing what I am talking about it will show my hand pulling the inner door handle and me manually putting it back in its place https://youtu.be/suLN0mMV_ME

    This might need some thinking on what's wrong with it because those for handles work in two directions. While in the car in order to lock the door, you pushed the handle forward and it would spring back to a center position, then to open the door you would pull the handle back and it would spring back to the same center position.
    Better check the FSM.

    My dad checked it and the spring is broken. It needs to be replaced with another 1

    Its being taken with a camera from iPhone, I do not have the extra funds for a camera right now . I noticed the drivers spear is back on . The chrome I was missing came for the windshield and watch the 1 I lost turns up

    The Journey on this forward look is almost complete I got to get the wipers put back on the car the weather stripping for the doors and the roof rail . I got to start the engine yet but the bumpers are back on the car . The journey began back in 2014 but some time in the future I will need to get my rear bumper straightened and re chromed

    Thank You Will and it almost looks identical as my last '61 except this 1 has PS and PB and added AC but I am not sure if the AC works or not

    The Wiper arms are back on the car and so are the Fury Scripts on each front fender. I am waiting for the wiring harness for the electronic ignition the 1 I had would not connect so it had to be sent back to were I got it from

    Waiting to be started and for the wiring harness for the electronic ignition . I have a bottle of ethanol treatment in the trunk of this forward look so I can run Shell V power in it ( 93 octane) There are some electrical issues that need to be taken care of before the car goes back on the road

    I thought the V-Power was ethanol free. It is up here.

    Are you a shell Fuel rewards member? If you have a iPhone or smart phone you can down load the app and your phone # will be your alt id and it all save .05 a gallon and when you purchase merchandise at any participating shell let the cashier know you have a fuel rewards card and how you are paying . You can also link the fuel rewards to your credit or debit card. When you get up to 25.00 you get another .05 off your fuel
