All side glass is now assembled. Next step windshiled and rear glass.
I also cut the carboard of hat shelf. I am going to hide rear speakers. I'm not gonna bolt them thru.
I might put the speaker/defoster frame to middle.

I have done some stainless resto every now and then. It is so time consuming job. Most of the pieces has deep cratches and dents. Car has been outside and barns dirty an dusty and stuff has been storaged on it. Windshield and rear glass trim are the worst.
After 9 or 10 step process pieces start to look good

Coming along nicely. This is going to be a spectacular car when done.

Jari, what material did you use for the hat shelf?

I am guessing this car came originally with the cane basket weave material on the shelf? (as did my Imperial)

For the Aussies watching this build, there is a manufacturer here making a vinyl basket weave look type material, which is UV resistant (made for early Holden resto's I think) which is what I used and looks pretty good.

Steve.

As Gary states on his site, he prefers communication through the mail. I know it's old-fashioned but he does communicate quickly through the mail. He even called me twice about my orders. I should have my 300F seat covers by the end of the year.

No.I have not used any GG parts parts at all, exept few left over rubber parts from previous projects. I had serious communication problem. He did not response.
Seat covers were made in Southern California years ago when I bought the car. Actually they made complete resto to seat frames, blasted and powder coated them and made everything, ready to put them on.
I got them in half price what it might cost in Finland.
There was nothing left from the seats exept frames and springs. Orginally G:s seats were tan with embossing. Black and red interior were option and seats were plain without embossings. Looks stubid to my eye so I ended up to F:s and H:s style, horisontal tuck'n roll.
Upholstery shop made a great job.

G is still at the paint shop. We got some troubles with the hood. There was a small spot needing a fix but when it was sanded down it turned out to rust spot that game from underneath (hided inside the hoods strenghning structions). Fixing that took lots of work and phases to do it.
While waiting I have restored stainless parts. Ihave my own version of 9 step prosess to fix the stanless.

This visit took 6 weeks. Picked up G from the paint shop today. It looks like this here today, snowy.
I was so anxious to see how the new chrome looks with new black surface, so I put few trims on.

Jari, first of all - your G looks really fantastic, congrats to a very special car!

The seal is called "Upper windshield post seal" Jari it's the same ones for all HT cars 60-64
KP has them, item # 69. The should have the weatherstrip over the windows as well, most probably item #W13

I was at KP's Place some years ago and the molded upper windshield post seals was very nice at that time. The pad was soft and flexible.

Hope this helps you out

I am missing few parts, if you can help me out with these:

Clove box "Chrysler" script
Clovebox light/switch
Antenna switch
trunk lid emblem (or a sticker from 300 club)
sill plate extensions
better sill plates (they are not so good what I have)
wiper blades (trico etc) I got the arms
300-badge between the rear seat back rests
Horns and brackets (I can also fabricate the brackets if someone provides me dimensions and some kind of photo)

I also might be interested in windshiled and rear glass interior trim (to be chormed)

I got a shipping adress in USA as well in EU so no extra shipping hassle.

There has'nt been much progress in this project lately. I'm suffering minor jetlag, returned from the trip to west-southwest USA week ago.
Found few interior pieces in Arizona but other swap meets in Califorinia were dissapointment Mopar-wise.

Adjusting doors and glass in order to get all caps looking nice is really time consuming. No idea how these cars left the factory, perhaps they did'nt care about them back then.

I am missing the nuts for the rear arm rests, anyone know where to get couple of these?

I just received my center console side moldings from the guy who does spectra chrome, macic chrome ... or what ever it is called.
Those parts were really busted with deep scratches and pin holes. When I removed the anodization from them with natrium hydroxide, holes and scratces crew even bigger.
So I just had go to paint , fil, sand many times around. I spent hours and hours sanding fillin and painting with them before I sent them to paint shop.

But result is really awesome! They are just like chromed. They look even better than original anodized moldings wich are little bit rough in the corners.
Over doing but what can you do

I have been doing carpeting lately. I got no original carpets left except some rags from center consoleI got from a friend of mine.
Years ago I got few rolls of tan showroom carpet that I used now to make templates for final versions.
I did first templates on plastic, then on tan carpet and when they were ok, I cut final versions out of black carpet

So so, it is so close now. Just bleeding the brakes, set the timing and get it running. Paint needs a buffing - but I do not want to hurry up now.
Besides I just received last friday a 69 coupe deville conv from Ca that i bought last winter. Its gonna be my pilsner bil for the summer but it needs registration and some TLC, just like my New Yorker does need some tuneup and almost every motorized vehicle I own. My summerhouse needs renovation too...

I made horn conversion this week end. Original horns were beyond restoraton. Used after market horns insted.
I fabricated new bracket sand used original cup, sand balsted and painted it. At first glance they loo just like originals,
Tone is little higher and stronger than original sound.

First starts with the engine got several things to happen.
Starter was weak but it was able to start it ten or fifteen times.
all exhaust gaskets shrunk and nuts got loose
carbs and ingnition worked fine
then old started totally melted, ordered a new modern one from Sweden (Thanks Magnus) it arrived in a week.
New starter really gave more boost for starting
Next time i drove engine warm noticed oli in the radiator!
WTF oil in coolant!
Thank God and mr. Murphy it was less expensive fail, It was transmission oil in the radiator and coolant in transmission.
Did not drive trans much, hopefully new oil is all I have to invest.

Proportion valve that came with AAJ brake kit, did not work, did not let enoug fluid to pass thru. Took it away and now brakepedal goes really down, so it wont work without eighter.

There is a tv-show in Finland called Strömsö. In Strömsö they do all kind of things very successfully, food, handcrafts, fixin furniture... what ever
When things go like they should not go or not go like they should, there is a say "did not go like in Strömsö"

This did not go like in Störmsö!

Few things has happened since I opened last time at this forum.
I got another radiator recored, now it has 100% more draws than original. It was really expensive but what can you do.
Changed trans oils.
Trans did not had reverse. I drowe on jack stands over 5 miles, adjusted reverse band, no help. Finally even cable did'nt want click to reverse.
Opened the oil pan and there it was. Little particles on oil filter from the broken clutch or band.
Everything in this car is rebuilded or repaired exept those I just cecked they were ok; starter, radiator, transmission, radiator. Now 3 of 4 of those has been blown.
It is frustrating to start reassemple almost finished car. I wish I could go back in time and get than transmission done when it was stored on garage floor

Thanks Sven!
Called couble transimission specialists. One of them estimated price for rebuild 2500-3000 and other 2100 - 2500 Euros with parts.
Thats quite a lot comparing to GM TH700 R4 boxes, about 3 times more

Mind that with "parts", they do not intend any hardware for the transmission - just the renovation kit.

I could do it for much less, but then there's the transport COSTs......... that will perhaps ruin a deal
