After several years of sitting and waiting for its turn in the garage, Mary's 69 Squareback is now running and on the road. With much help from Pete, Cool the mechanicals are good and now we just need to work on exterior and replacement of seals.

Mary says we also need to make having tunes a priority. party0006

No way to get the car there. If I have time, I will pull the rotors and bring them with me.

After installing new front brakes, the brake lights wouldn't work. I checked the fuse box and it was in need of serious cleaning. Broke out the Dremel and cleaned holders and fuses. Put it back together and all the lights work great including the turn signals that had been giving me trouble. Very Happy

Exactly what Jon needs some boom boom Twisted Evil I think the mudflap installation is a lot higher on the list though.

As some of you may know from other posts my wife's daily driver is an automatic 69 Squareback. She has driven it for over a year without complaint about its outward appearance. Well, its time has come and it is at the body shop now. We went to visit it today and I took a few pictures. When it went in, the plan was just to mask windows and lights before spraying. As you will see, the body man decided that wasn't good enough; the doors are off and windows are out.

His sign isn't much, but his work is great.



Yes it has the dealer AC vents.








When it is done, no more red hinges. Very Happy


We have several NOS parts we have been saving to put on once it is painted. I can't wait to have Mary rolling in a car that looks as good as she does. Very Happy

You have first shot at them. I was going to put them on the Samba, but would rather you get them.
