This gotta be a turning point. First part assembled back to the body.
Bottom of the car looks good.
Now I am going to get it back on its wheels so it could be trailered to a paint shop.

Started to make some tin-work. I attend to use bondo as little as possible. Tempereture in my barn varies from -30 to over 100 F. Also I want that no one needs to do this job again for this car. Doing it right is not that hard it just takes more time than doing it with plastic fillers etc.

Well, not so much progress during the summer. I have mostly enjoyed summer by fixing the roof (wich was leaking)and sealings of my summerhouse by the lake.
At the garage I have fixed, sandplasted and painted loose parts and so on, even got exhaust headers welded and blasted - very little. But now when the fall comes, I think I will spent more time indoors (means garage).

Last weekend I took a trip with my New Yorker and drove to country side to several paint job guys to ask an offer of painting my 300 and I was kinda lucky. One of them was really anxious to take it with really reasonable price. And I know this guy is very skillfull and done several show quality cars.
In my city all kind of fender benders and small collisions occur for cars and mopedcars that all car paint shops in town do only those. They charge 500-1000 euros for fixing small dent and cratch. (perhaps a ½day job) Easy money for them
I do not mind trailering my car 70 kms to the paint job.

So My target is to get it on its wheels rolling before the winter comes and get it to paintshop. Then I start to rebuild engine and tranny, dashboard and so on and car can just sit and dry

This is a spooky story.
Last friday night I was working at the carage. It was dark dark windy night, occasionally full moon showed up between the clouds.
I was drinking few beers and grining paint off of my G:s roof. Anyone who has done that knows that paint doest not get off smoothly when you use power grinders. at the beginnig surface looks pretty spotty becouse of multible paint layers, some spots buff off easier than othres. It is also boring time consuming job

Here is the spooky part, more I buffed, more I saw four figures like skulls or heads. Paint just did not want to get off from certain spots.
Finally I was able to see four heads, like a family, Dad, mother, boy child and a baby.
Dad is laughing, mon crying, child is like in in Edward Muncs painting "scream", baby is sleeping...

I went back to house but I was not able to sleep. I was thinging who the hell they are. Did family died in this car or was killed by this car...

Next mornig I went back to carage and... they were gone.

I guess this car has to be a rat rod now, flat black with skulls all over it

G as a rat rod - mmm. Not so good idea even I like rat rods as well as restored or show cars. I managed to buff them all off but what if..
If they'll some day, I mean night, show up again and want to step in, on the lonely road dozens of miles from the nearest house

Might not have any choice in wether the skuls are there or not

They may be slight indentations on the roof that show in the paint when you look at it just right

Plenty of high fill primmer on the roof to keep them buried

It is on its wheels, Yeeeah.
Actually those are not its own wheels, they are chevy winter wheels with spacers.
Anyway its rolling now and ready to move anywhere.

I have forced to make some compromises with body and paint work. (in order to save money and time) I do my self all I can and wich can be done at my own paint booth of my carage. So I finish bottom of the body, frame, axles etc components. Also firewall, luggage compartment, innerside of lids and doors. I remove the old paint and spray epoxy primer. Rest, wich means those surfaces wich are critical and where top quality is needed are done in better facilities by a very best professional.
It means lots of tapeing and covering already painted areas but I think it will be worth of it.

I started to restore steering box. Very simple Actually its about 10 years when I last touched Mopar steering box and
learned everything from them - and forgot :).
On thing is very frustrating in these boxes, when you pull out sector saft, next thing you usually see
are bearing pins all around table or floor. It happened this time too. Oil washes vaseline out off the bearings and the pins are
guite loose and drop when teher is no axle to keep them on their place.
Then one thing raised a guestion. In the repair kit instructions I have, it has piston sealing ring. WTF:n piston sealing ring.
There is only piston ring??
Anyone knows what this is? Am I mistaken??

Last I spoke with Magnus he said that he had done some steering wheels for US guys, so I guess that it's a yes on the first question. As I see it, the shipping will be the problem, because you must send a core over to Sweden and then pay for the return shipment. If you would like to contact Magnus, you could send him a mail at stade.b@telia.com

Time to do some interior work. Door panels are really beaten. Aluminum panels turned out not so good in closer inspection, expecially at the drivers door. rears are not so bad.
I have seen repros for sale in Power Meet. Whos doing them? Swedes please let me know.

Bought a chinese made radio to make FM conversion to original AM Golden Touch radio.
It was more time consuming than I frist thought.

Buy the way, I tested it and it works, all knobs works. I was un able to test how to electroluminence lights work becouse I did not have working powerpack (oscillator). That darn thing was broken
There is no CD player but USB is a cool thing. Small front dispaly is easy to hide anywhere and still be handy to use. I'll fabricate a cover box for it later. Cable is about 1 meter in lenght now but will cut it to lenght needed when I know the place for the display.

That's a neat idea to convert the radio. So did you use the new tuning shafts and adapt them to the old knobs? I assume that is how you did it to match up the inputs properly. I guess Pyle isn't a pyle of crap after all.

Edit: Also, could you elaborate on why you needed to make a new tuner shaft?

Yes, thats what I did. Both tuning shafts are form Pyle. I Had to extend sation tuning shaft inside the box about 3/4 inches. You can hardly see it in the picture. I fabricated it from brake lining material.
On/off knob was mostly bolt on and glued spacers.
Pyle says it has 2 x 80W in power. Anyway its much better than AM radio wich has no use at all. I appreciate USB and memorycard, I can carry tons of music very easily, I Do not miss DC's at all. I actually hate them lying around the seats, dash and clove compartment.

I got a call from the machine shop last week. Engine block needs to be bored and about everything done I examined heads, few valves did not want to come off some were really loose. heads also need to be machined and everything new. Camsaft was also worn... Thats gonna take XXXX€:s. Should I buy aftermarket heads? Might be much cheaper than fix the old ones.

Disk brakes are super nice. Investing them could be smart idea. Blueprinted engine will have better heads, camsaft, igniton... meaning more power, more burning rubber

Very nice work you are doing but I have to laugh.....you are doing things like a full rotisserie cleanup, new floors, new steering wheel....then you are sad that you will need a new cam! Around here, no one would reuse an old cam anyway, plus they are cheap and easy to replace. I'll tell you what - you come over and redo my floors and I will buy you a cam!

Well, purist must act a part New cam is alreay in the engine with other new parts. I think I will be very satisfied with it someday. Replacing a cam to ram engine is not that simple becouse of ram induction. Wrong timing or cam separation could couse power loss, torque/rpm change, too high cylinder pressure... problems.
I found only one cam with more lift and duration wich was close to original specs (timing wise) when retarded.
I might visit Texas next spring or fall, if a plan of the roundtrip from west to east with my eldest son comes true. We drive from city to city, He s gonna teach breakdance at danceschools - I might repair floors while that
