Thumbs up Hi Guys!!!

Hawkrod - Harley,

I always love to get in on new forums. I like to see attachments like the picture of your parts car.

I hope to put some of my 62 on soon. It kind of looks real bad, but its registeded and insured .. I can drive it around!!!..

I put a lot of time and $$$ into this bird and never really new if I could get it pass the DMV. The last time it was registered was in 1982, and that fellows passed away 5 years ago. Great feeling to know it's really yours.

Finally got the brakes completly redone, new tires, totaly rebuilt the front end, trans shifting right, leaks cleaned up, top works great and the 3 x 2 carbs are in tune... the car runs great (and fast).

Next steps:
1 paint (the body work is 95% complete)
2 chrome
3 new top
4 new seat covers rugs, door panels, etc, etc.
5 the million little things that must be done to make it right.

Just wondering what's the best order to do these things in?

Thanks Guys,

Lets spread the word of this new forum!

cool a big howdy from out west!

:s3 and welcome to our small group! i have been ringing the bell and really want to get these forums going as i think they are some of the best formated forums i have found. your 62 sounds like mine. mine was off the road since 77 and i got it on the road last week. i am still waiting for clearance to continue to use the famous black and yellow california plates! let me know if you need any of my parts. i actually have two parts cars and so i have a ton of good stuff. i have rust free everything and then some! you need fenders? i got 'em. you need doors? i got 'em. you need qtr's? i got em. by the way i am happy to trade parts as well. right now i could use an A/C center vent and dash aluminum (my car is not A/C but i want to hide some radio stuff and will make a fold down cover! i really hated to cut the parts car but i can't save them all. spread the word and we can have a nice thing here. hawkrod

My car was partially disassembled when I purchased it. The are very few 61-63 Tbirds in this area. I have not seen one of these monsters close up since 1969 when I had a 63 convert. I have Larry’s BIG bird book, is this the same as the body assembly manuals I see adverised? I'm not sure how some of the engine compartment wiring is suposed to be routed. Everthing works fine, but I would like it to look correct.
