Going to pick up the brake fluid as we speak. This is always a stressful part of the build for me... fingers crossed!

Thank goodness for the internet! My lower steering column bushing was shot & I really didn't want to replace the column so I scoured the net & finally found one that works. Ain't easy findin' parts for a '64 Rambler!

Got the brake & gas lines run, engine compartment prepped & ready to stab the engine/tranny for the last time. This Winter blast has held me up but it's supposed to warm up starting this weekend! I don't see how you guys up north do it!

Our secret Tripper, is a heated shop. And it warmed up here too this week-end. It was melting today.

My shop is heated and cooled, just at the wrong times. Hot in summer and cold in winter!
