I swapped out the 69 pump reservoir for the 67. Fits like a glove.

I installed the rear interior panels, A/C, PS and alternator belts, the power window switches and the inner and outer fenders.

Adjusted the fenders and ended up with pretty nice gaps.

Keith,

Just read through your whole thread. Very nice work! Canít wait to see the finished product! Although seeing it come together is what I like the most.

Making slow but steady progress.

The valence and header needed a tiny bit of Dremel work to a few screw holes where everlapping metal was misaligned. The RS headlamp assemblies also needed slight tweaking to the fender mounting points.

The fold down seat went in easy.

Thanks! This car has not been driveable since 1981. So, I am pretty excited to see this one on the road!

Installed the fan shroud, light harness, voltage regulator, horn relay and RS relay board.

I inspected the original relays and they are in perfect condition. The contacts and armetures look brand new.

I also drilled all holes for the RS marker lamps.

I installed more A/C components, the headlamp doors and the hood. I have a bit of work to do on the hood alignment.

The hinges are tight as heck. I need to get some lithium grease on them.

Front clip alignment almost complete!

The front clip sheet metal was all from AMD. I had original metal, but it was pretty dinged up.

So, here is what I went through to get it aligned.

1. On initial fitment without hood, I had to shave of extra metal where fender lip was interfering with the doors from opening.

2. I had to dremel the fender hole that goes in door jamb.

3. At this point, the fenders went on but, I had big door to fender gaps. Especially, at top of doors.

I later found that installing hood reduced the upper gaps between doors and fenders.

4. i added several shims to fender to door jamb location. This opened the fender a bit. I also added extra shims to where fender meets upper cowl.

5. I loosened all bolts to sheetmetal and tightened the firewall fender bolts to reduce the door to fender gaps.

6. Once those gaps were good, I installed hinges and hood.

7. I had to remove some shims from cowl and door jambs to get alignment height of fenders to hood.

8. My hood was not square to fenders. Tweaking door jamb shims and removing radiator core support to frame bolts to shift front clip sheet metal squared my hood gaps.

9. Passenger hood to fender gap was 1/8 and driver side was 1/4. I had already adjusted hood hinge to hood positions all they could be adjusted. So, I shimmed the back passenger hinge where it met the fender and it fixed the issue. Hood gaps are equal.

I may dremel the hood hinge holes instead. I am not sure I like the shim method.

All that is left is to get the hood to drop lower. I am out of room to adjust hinges and need to dremel the low hood hinge holes.

Fun!!!

Re: My 67 Resto Mod Build

The hood can be adjusted sideways by moving the hood in the holes. Loosen one bolt at a time and pull the hinge left or right, tighten, do the other bolt. Hood hinges need to be rotated to raise or lower, not by moving the entire hinge up or down. I've never had to enlarge hood hinge holes.

I did follow the process you have mentioned. It may be that the powdercoated hinges are stiff. These are repop hinges.

I did not have this issue with my other car that used OEM parts.

I have been applying lithium grease which has helped get the hood down some.

Could very well be. Exactly why I only use GM hinges and have Willie rebuild them. I hate repro parts. You may have to open the slot like you said on the pieces of junk.

I'm not very happy with th repop hinges. I tried to find OEM but, at the time, I could not find any!
