    Next up: grille extensions and front park/turn lamps. The chrome-plated die cast trim panel gets bolted to the steel base plate, then the lamp is attached to the panel. The lamp housing attaches with studs, washers and nuts. I ran a tap through all the threaded holes to clean out all the excess copper and chrome plating from the threads. After assembling the lamp housing to the plate, it's on to the car: And repeat for the right side... Just SO cool.

    Check out Rhode Island wiring. They might have the Harness. The will send a diagram with it and if you have any questions they will help. If not there are mopar suppliers that have them. What you have is a fire waiting to happen. Be safe .

    Ok so I made a little progress. After a trip to the lumber yard for more flashing tape and paint, as well as a trip to the Hardware store to pickup up more finish nails (I know there is a box of them somewhere but I can't find it) and caulk as well as to see if they stocked the same color (which they don't) I did buy a black primer. The green will cover that much better than over the white. I did manage to get all 4 doors installed and shimmed. Now I need to paint them, which masking will be a pain in the butt. but spraying them will look much cleaner. I think if I cut paper inserts for masking the windows on my paper cutter, that will make it go a bit faster, plus I can slide a piece of cardboard behind the weatherstrip to paint the jambs so no taping there. Now we just need the wind and humidity to die down so I can get it all done. Once they are painted, I'll finish flashing them. Here is that match on paint. I sprayed right over the green with it as well. That spray out is with no primer and the semi gloss or satin clear over it, I couldn't believe the match was that good. Wouldn't have happened if I had been trying to paint a car fender. Oh about another 130.00 in Materials. The only good thing is I take the long way to the hardware store, about 6 extra miles and use the Hudson, so I atleast get to drive it. She likes stretching her legs outside of town with those tall gears. The windows have grilles for them as well. I just haven't installed them yet.

    Auburn that’s an intriguing question you ask. My opinion is that in an ideal world we would build them together quicker because we would be committed to each other, not to mention the several jobs that almost require two people to be reasonably done at all. But our world is not ideal. Life offers to us so many distractions to the extent that rare would be the time we would all be working together for any length of predictable time. I will say this though, when you and a talented friend are able to gang up on a project, it can be a very enjoyable time and it leaves you wishing for more of those moments. It may seem odd, but knowing I have friends here watching my project, inspires me to think creatively and hold the course.

    Also note above in the parts list, the High Speed Jets are not common in 4 to 6 Marvels yet the Marvel outside letter designation is common. So you could have the correct carb. or at least think you do but with the wrong jet. I'd bet there is more than one 6 running around (poorly) with a 4 cylinder jet but the correct letter housing. Thanks Marvel. The name Marvel reminds me of the sign on the way to work for Mr. Sparky the electrician chain. No thanks, but do you have the # for Mr. Safe-n-Licensed? Need to find the pic of the Model T Ford fire engine at the annual Old Car Festival at Greenfield Village with the sign, Same Day Service. Oh look, here comes the nurse with my pills . . .

    (1) Post this to the Durant forum here---Flint was one of Billy Durants cars---'m sure the Durant Club includes it, and will be the best source of help/advice/sympathy... (2) A couple of my better old catalogs imply (strongly) that the 6E was unique to the Flint, quite unusual for Cont'l... (3) Place to start for parts etc Monte's Eqpmt, NW of Chicago, dealer in obsolete Cont'l parts. garradmoon@montes@flash.net (Garrad (Gerry/Jerry Moon) or montesequipment.com.. (4) I have no idea how this script shifted over to italics, or how to get it back.......

    I think it would be good for someone contemplating buying a specific car yet never driven one, rent a similar car for a day and see if you still want one by the end of the day! I didn't read the fine print, this obviously assumes Hagerty offers a rental insurance policy to cover your car. Personally, I rarely have the occasion where a friend drives one of my cars, letting a stranger drive one doesn't work for me......

    I might be tempted to rent something if the price is not ridiculous. But I certainly would not be renting out my car. I don't need to get it back trashed.

    What an excellent looking Series 6-29A. Beautiful original looking colours. I see four things that are not stock but could be easily remedied. Anyone who buys this should know that my Series 6-30B has given me 59 years of excellent service on top of the 29 years of service that it gave my Grandfather. In the years that I have driven mine I have put 400,000+ miles on it and only been towed home once. In 99,000 miles my Grandfather was towed home once. I drive many miles at night and/or on the highway, usually cruising at 50-55 mph. A very easy care and easy to drive vehicle. I hope the person that buys it wants to drive it, not just take it to local shows.

    This wiring diagram is on eBay and is less than $12 including shipping. This would be a good start. Good luck.... https://www.ebay.com/itm/1972-Dodge-Dart-Demon-Wiring-Diagram-Manual/391731283706?hash=item5b350106fa:g:Z2cAAMXQHO9Rda7B

    The back of the harmonic balancer has a notched shutter ring that runs closely through a gap in the crankshaft position sensor. If grass got caught in the notched ring and pulled into the sensor it could move or damage the sensor.

    It still casts a shadow, what's wrong with it?

    The drivers side motor mount "tower" would need to be lowered to clear front exhaust manifold. Forgot to add that the way to gauge height of mount tower, is to turn the engine plate upside down and when bolted back on gives the height the tower needs to be at. Bolting the setup to a 263" engine, however, is not an issue, except if using a 1948 up chassis which changed the front motor mounts from the front timing cover plate to the four bolt mounts on both sides of engine.

    Us...... "Us dogs are like that" I still look behind a house in Athens and can still see a Condor Yellow with Baffin Green '54 2 dr Super that was parked there and never moved when I was in high school. Of course then I come out of my dream and wonder what ever happened to it.
