Thanks guys. Still picking away at things. The front shocks are mounted, started plumbing the carbs, been working away at the wiring, gauges, headlight switch, dimmer switch, etc. I'm getting close.
I'm just not sure where to mount the old "four wheel brakes" emblem. Originally, I believe it was mounted inside the spare tire, along with the single tail light. I keep moving it around, but just not sure where it's going to end up. Hard to believe that that must have been bragging rights or a selling feature - "four wheel brakes!"

While it probably doesn't look like much, I am continuing to make progress. Finally found the parts I needed to complete the rear brakes, brake system is bled now, and I 'm continuing to work on the wiring. The goal is to be running and driving in the next two months, so I hope it all works out!

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Thanks Dozer. I've tied up lots of loose ends, getting real close to firing it up. Unfortunately, it looks like I'm going to have to use one of those accordion looking "multi fit" hoses for the lower rad hose.....just too many tight things in the way. Mostly wired up, hopefully have some fire in the pipes in the next week or two. I even mounted my rad emblem today

Default Little more progress

Thanks everyone. Some more progress to report - with the exception of a couple of gauges, my wiring seems to be complete.....and working! I haven't tried firing it up yet, I need to bolt up the torque converter first, and I'll be damned if I know what I did with the bolts. Here's a few pic's from yesterday, and an artsy one that turned out pretty cool

Bill, All three pics are artful. Of course, you have good subject matter with the Graham.
Are the orange pants a safety requirement in Canada?
