Keep up the good work Jason. Forgive me for asking - the screen is part of the oil filtration system? I am not familiar with this, but enjoy the chance to learn!

Thanks! On these engines they do not have an oil filter as we think of it today but instead had a kind of filtration / sediment capture system that kept the debris and particles from circulating within the engine.

Here s an ad for it from back then.

Well if you didn't know this finding parts for a 41 Pontiac is more than a little tough. However when you have a partner like my dad amazing things can happen. Here are exhaust hangars from scratch and their install.

Thanks, it is taking awhile and my Dad is doing most of the work at the moment as he has the car in Tennessee while I live in Alaska. I hope to have it done this year.

Jason, I noticed on your original pictures there is no medallion in the center of your rear bumper, can`t tell if the hole is there or if it`s been welded up. Do you have one? There is one listed on ebay item #142312297479, looks pretty good, missing some paint, and bit pricey. There was actually two options for the center of the rear bumper, the medallion, and a flip down center guard. Have you ever seen one? They`re both really rare items..  Tom

Tom,

   I'm sorry for such a late response for some reason I am not getting notifications on this post. I have the flip down Center Guard that you were talking about. It came installed on my car.

Finally making some more progress, got the new wiring harness installed for the front, got the engine to start and run, installed the left fender, the trunk lid and it's braces, and got the dash and all the surrounds finished.
