Wheel Opening Moldings

The rotisory made this job a lot easier!

Amazing what just a little chrome does to dress everything up!

With the shell rotated upside down, drop in the gas tank.

Experienced gas tank!

Tank vent line routing in trunk.
Instead of a normal mat between the tank top and the trunk, Paul used strips of DynaMat left over from Gary's Windsor. Thank's Gary!

See what you can do with 45 year old rusty parts.
Nice view showing fuel line connection to the sender and the two tank vents.

Sound proofing



Paul decided to replace the old factory firewall padding with DynaLiner. We discussed covering the floor as well, but concluded a quiet convertible just isn't going to happen.
Besides, road and wind noise is half the fun of driving a drop top!

Emergency Brake


Dress up the foot pedals!

A few years prior, I ran across some well used pedals in Seatle. I bought them hoping the chrome was usable and would work on my car. Fury III's didn't rate such fancy stuff! Paul polished everything and only found one bad spot, the lower right corner of the brake pedal was worn right through. Looks just fine to my eye!
