Time to make a couple grills.

I picked the car up from polishing and dropped it off to get the side windows installed.

So the side windows are now installed and the buffing is as good as its going to get. Time to get after it and get this thing together.

My progress so far. I知 worried about the oil pressure. I知 installing a SW Green-line mechanical oil pressure gauge.

Why not connect a direct reading gauge where the electrical sending unit goes, crank it up & see what oil pressure is. That will give you a reference for the dash gauge reading.

Bracket needs to be moved to the left 5/8 for hood lock to work. Dynacorn radiator support. Bracket needs to be moved 5/8. So grill and hood lock can work. Another setback.

Sorry for your trouble.
This is a good example for others that you should assemble the body before paint to be sure that every thing fits and has good gap margins.
