seat gets glassed to the seat rails. It looks and seems so
easy, but it ain't. The seat has to be positioned in the frame
so it will actually slide between the two mounts, which is
almost a zero tolerance fit, in most cases.
done a superb job gluing the seat to the frame. You can see
on the front and the back, there is a mat patch that secures
the seat. The blue and green tape protects the satin black
paint. After the seat is sanded, it is primed in urethane
primer. The seat will be upholstered and then hand painted
restored the horn and is testing it to make sure it beeps.
the headers are installed, we apply a layer of heat proof
material. This keeps the fiberglass from burning. In the old
days, this material wasn't used and after awhile, guess what
running the oil breather lines from the oil tank to the engine.
The oil filter housing (grenade filter) is installed and the
tach drive has also been installed. It's easier to do this
after the engine is in place.
preparing the oil tank for installation, checking welds, weld
fittings, mounts, etc. The tank will be hand polished (not
machine because of the shine).
