Mine has the cutout with the lone ACCEL lever but I've never seen that bracket. By the position in the parts catalog it seems the bracket would interfere with the installation in the dash. I have an extra 69 dash that I picked up and it has the lever but not the bracket.

Thanks gents...I think we beat this one to death.

I'm quite confident that what I have now is a correct configuration for the 69 US model GTV.

Thanks Xenios....that's pretty much exactly what the end result of what mine looks like now.

Progress report (no pics)...

so I installed all the gauges, the dashboard lights, headlights and fog lights and have got them all working...finally! I won't say it was straightforward because it wasn't! Lots of trouble shooting required with the relays, switches, grounds, courtesy lights etc. and lots of disassembly and re-assembly to get them right. One thing I noted though is that the FOG lights don't seem to turn on any dashboard mounted indicator light when switched on (such as what the high/low beam lights have)......is this correct?

I managed to find an 18" piece of braided rubber hose that I lost track and was searching high and low for a while now. It's one that Papajam provided to me years ago at the time when I purchased one of his rebuilt MC's.

I've seen similar products on ebay...but just not this exact material spec. I don't know exactly what the rubber is...but since it came from Papajam...I know it must be correct for the brake reservoir hoses. With that I was finally able to reconnect all the new hydraulic reservoirs to the new brake lines.......

Thanks for the confirmation. I suppose that since the fogs can't be turned on without the low beam lights activated....a separate warning light for the fogs would really be redundant anyways.

ok. Getting really close now. Half the bb is going to want to attend the starting ceremony.

What's left, anyway? I can remember when I was close to the end on my Jr. Z build I had been spending so much time zooming in on details that I nearly forgot that I was working on a car!

cheers,
Brian

Believe me....I wish that day was tomorrow! But no such luck...I tried not look too far ahead too many times on this project (I didn't want to get overwhelmed). I can say though that I've started in some way or another on every aspect of the remaining tasks....drivetrain, engine, interior and suspension.

Nice JrZ by BTW.....had my Montreal not happened along...that is one model I was going to look as a next project candidate.

if you google the DIN nr is on the brake hose provided by papajam (DIN73378) it comes clear that its a hose with nylon in it, so brake fluid resistant

OK ....a very small update. I restarted my plating system after months of it being stored out of the way. So I zinc plated the OE license plate mount bracket that Nakagtv provided to me. Thank you Zaza!

Looks great! I got a Eastwood tin/zinc anode and some of their plating solution and it works well. More of a I wanna see what it does than anything else.

Time for a small update. I 'm finally at the point of reassembling some of the other systems...like the fuel lines. I stayed with steel as the material of choice...with the added benefit that these come copper lined. It's a rather simple task of using the originals as the template for the new.

New grommets from gprocket worked like a charm to hold the lines firmly in position. I also kept the foam/rubber coverings....corrosion is not an issue to me since this car won't be driven very often (if at all) in poor weather conditions.....but the foam protect the line from potential stone fragment punctures.

I also finally got around to applying rocker guard undercoating all underneath the car.

This is another one of those tasks that would have been ideally done when I had the car in the paint shop. But I managed to get it done regardless. I was quite happy with how it turned out after all that effort.
