There seems to be a little flu bug going around these days. I've managed to avoid it so far, but my son has it now. I'm hoping lots of vitamin C and hand washing will keep it at bay so I can reach my target finish date of July 27th.
I picked up my readjusted vent window from John at Maltby Glass on Wednesday as promised, and price on target. He will be putting in my front and back windshields in the next few weeks. In the mean time I can now install my door windows.
I had the glass cut for the doors years ago. I sent in the old window frames and they sent back new windows installed and cut vent windows. The vent windows were loose as the chrome frames were in such bad shape I thought I would have to replace them, but my neighbor Steve, who wrenches on a 1936 Dodge told me about Specialty Platting up by Mt. Vernon. They did magic on my parts as well as turned them around in less than 2 weeks.

*I've been soaking the regulators in "TriFlow" lubricant and I could just wait for it to penetrate more and get more give out of the unit to adjust better.

BTW: We did manage to get to the Duvall Auto Swap Meet last Sunday. I brought my son and his little friend Layla with me. I gave them some food money and a little extra cash to get a car part they might like for a "rugrat - rod". They spent it all on hot wheels. After we ate at the one last food concession open, I took them to meet some of the folks at Rat Bastards Car club. I bought a "T" shirt for my daughter and picked up a 3/18" brake line flair bit I was missing from my kit.
