Having called the bodyshop yesterday and learning that the car still off the lift, work on the hydraulic and fuel systems was postponed. So it was on to the cooling system.

Fan, shroud, radiator in radiator hoses going in.

On to removing the old heater box (ugh!) to facilitate easier installation of the new heater hoses. A previously rebuilt heater box will be installed at a later date. A new return hose and grommet being installed.

I can't stress enough the importance of taking pictures, no matter how large or small the project, before anything is taken apart. This was invaluable for me to determine which of the three small holes in the supply hose grommet through which the speedometer cable needed to go.

Final pics of the day include new fluid reservoirs for the master cylinders (and a well-deserved sugar break ).

Indeed it was a well deserved break. You're fortunate as well that you have use of the facility on the weekend to complete all that work....there aren't many generous folks like that left.

The tricolore cam cover bolts are a cool, but subtle touch.

Although the posting of progress pics has been a bit lax, car assembly continues at a regular pace.
The day before Christmas saw the changing out of the original 4-wire, external regulator alternator for a newer 2-wire internal reg unit.

The last say of the year involved removal of the wiring harness and installation of the refurb'd heater box and new sunvisors.

Wish you were working on mine--somebody needs to. White cam cover--pretty sporty to keep clean?

New Years day was spent cleaning and repairing the wiring harness in preparation for it's modification. Mods included removal of a number of circuits that were no longer needed such as rear window defogger, key buzzer, low fuel pressure light, external voltage regulator, toggle switch fog light control, etc. I thought it better to unwrap the harness (for complete inspection as well) and remove the unneeded wires rather than pull a DPO hack job and cut them.
This also allowed for the addition of a few new circuits; a 2-wire turn signal flasher (replacing the old 4-wire unit) and accommodation for separate left and right turn signal indicators. The center toggle switch on the console will now power an auxiliary electric fuelpump (the 'main' pump is a standard mechanical pump mounted on the timing cover).
