Hey Pete you're putting a lot of pressure on me!I do hope Rossano, you enter her in an appropriate concours competition as she is going to set a new record for score. Do you have to be invited to Pebble Beach?
You guys are too much!Just my thoughts, but I think rossano could study up on YouTube on how to be a heart surgeon.And he'd be a great one!!! (These are the things one conjures up during a tornado warning!!)
Rich...I'm sure your cars have held up their hoods proudly in a few concours already. Plus...I look forward to the day when they can be displayed together in the same event....that would be a real treat! Maybe your recent 69 GTV acquisition from Vy will be ready around the same time as mine?Please let me know when you do enter the Concours so I can pull out ...
Basically just the rails sliding one t'other ...which is a rather crude design and with not even a wooden roller in the mix. I tried applying just a very light coat of regular grease...but it was not very successful in creating a smooth action. I didn't want to go too heavy with it so as to not end up trapping a lot of grime and dust between the sliders. So I'm open to suggestions on improving this.Excellent progress since I last checked in....One thing I'm wondering about is how best to clean and lube the seat rails without doing a full disassembly. I read that earlier cars had wooden rollers at some point; mine appeared on cursory inspection to have ball bearings. What was used in '69?
Thank you for the kind words. Keeping the thread going is helping me to keep going on the car too.......Threads like this make me so thankful that I am only having to clean, lubricate and remove a little surface rust from most parts to bring things back to near-new condition. I remain in awe of your determination and resourcefulness, and dedication to documenting everything here for our benefit.

I'm thinking that since 1969 was the year EPA and DOT started clamping down on emissions, the manufacturers may have had to pay more attention to ensuring these were installed and delivered with the vehicles.on my 67 Duetto the only sticker was the black lubes one, placed haphazardly on the passenger side above the middle.
I'm literally tingly with anticipation. See the thread link below.Continuing with re installation of components in engine bay....
Question on hood sticker placement....where might they have been originally placed from factory or dealership for that matter?
