    That will be nice, new glass is a must! I can only hope to find NOS or that someone decides to repop glass for a Maverick as I get closer to finishing.

    The tint is going to look nice against the black on black, it makes it look even darker from the outside.

    Those 2 J hook shaped pieces for the back window look like they'll be fun to buff. I can't wait to see them finished.

    I always refer to stainless as poor man's chrome. Just think what Paul's plating would charge to strip, repair, & replate those if they were chrome.

    I consider myself pretty decent at buffing, but there really aren't any secrets to it, are they? Probably the best advice anyone could give you is --- get to it.


    At least the results from all the tedious labor are satisfying to say the least.

    I actually considered sending it to Paul’s and having them plate it but decided that if I damaged during installation I could easily repair stainless but I’d have to send them back the part for re-plating

    That's more like it, probably looks perfect from a few feet away.

    The original Inland shifter had a mechanical reverse lockout which was disengaged with the T handle. The Tremec 6 speed also has an reverse lockout, but it is operated by a 12v solenoid. So I modified a door jam domelight switch to fit inside and added a top spring to hold tension on the T handle. This will either directly operate the negative side of the solenoid or a relay? I haven’t quite decided how I will wire that in yet. I just need to add a slight dogleg bend to the shifter, weld on the 2x1x1/2” mount block and then send it out for Chrome;-)
    Thanks

    Lookin good brother! I like that you're keeping the inland shifter - most people punk out and just go to a Hurst

    I’m using the American Autowire classic update series harness. Very nice harness as it uses all of the original connectors. None of the ends are installed so you can adjust the length of the wires as you see fit, along with having all of the additional wires needed for a modern car such as electric fan, electric fuel pump, door locks, power seats and power windows. It looks original with the same color code, but with one nice addition all of the wires are labeled every 4 inches. Instrument panel worked out great!
    A few modifications along with a couple brackets I made to hold the new fuse box securely, with access from the glove box.
    Need to paint the gray plastic face plate black to finish it off.
    Thanks

    Started the restoration on the grill which is in very good condition but as with most Charger grills there are a few cracks that need to be repaired. After cleaning up and painting most of the hardware I started by fixing some of the cracks and broken parts using steel wire to get a mechanical fastener prior to using epoxy with chopped fibers.
    Thanks
