Happy Day

Well today we got the body removed to make it easier to track down my wiring issues.Thanks to fellow builders Henry and John they were able to discover the wiring problem. Since I have not wired any rear lighting yet the wiring was coiled up and laying on the gas tank and apparently a bare wire was contacting bare metal somewhere. Just pulling the wiring coils out and letting them hang down all problems disappeared. Wiring not being my strong suit by any means I am glad I had 2 knowledgeable friends that could figure it out. I'll get started connecting the lighting in the next few days. I'm a lot happier than I was a few days ago. Thanks again to Henry and John and my neighbor Rich.

Good seeing you JR.

We also found that the connector between the main harness and the front harness was mis-wired. As a result, every time JR turned on his parking lights his fan would come on. Once we re-pinned the connector, that problem was sorted. So when you're plugging in connectors, make sure the wires match up!

I'm unable to locate the mounting screws for the door latches. Can anyone clue me in as to where to look and/or what size they are? Thanks in advance.

Trying from memory;
Take off the chrome cover of the latch and see if there's a little bag of screws in there. They are pretty small

Thanks Dave. I think I may have found them. I have 15 #8x3/4 oval head screws in the bag with the leather check straps and acorn nuts. The #8x3/4 screws didn't look long enough especially with the 3/16" door latch spacers.

Fuel Fill Pipe Gasket

After reading a post on the other forum about a leak at the FFR provided fuel fill pipe gasket I checked mine and sure enough mine was torn/cut about half way around. I just got finished replacing the gasket with a Ford gasket. Much better now.

Good job JR. Thinking ahead was a good move. Think what that would have been like when you get it on the road and fill it up.

Finally got some cooler weather (less than 90*) and thanks to Phileas Fogg we were able to set rivnuts in the F panels for the Elephant ear install when the time comes. We used his rivnut setter and it worked perfectly. I may do more rivnuts now. We used 10-32 rivnuts 6 per F panel.

A couple more things accomplished today. The cover plate on top of the drivers foot box I used 3 rivnuts and I made a "gasket" for the plate from pvc sheet goods used for shower pan waterproofing. I also made a "dead pedal" from one of the hood pin brackets, sorry I can't remember the forum member who posted the idea in the last week or so.

Body Undercoating

I got the first coat of Duplicolor bed liner on the underside of the body with 1 more coat to go + a couple extra coats for the wheel wells. I used 2" chip brushes and it went pretty well. I stayed pretty clean and used rubber gloves. My elevated body buck is close to being fire wood.

I got the second coat of Duplicolor Bed Armor applied today. It went alot quicker due to it being much cooler than during first round. It was about 93 during the first coat today it was around 72 and cloudy. I still have the extra coats to do in the wheel wells which I plan on doing tomorrow.
