started off chasing electrical issues:

fixed the 4 ways


changed the low fuel light relay so it wasn't permanently illuminated

replaced the interior lights relay

adjusted the previously replaced brake light relay so they work after fixing the 4ways

Keep posting!
I have been/are doing improvements on my own '66 Town Landau, i.e in the throes of putting new intake gaskets and the original 4100 on it and then a new vacuum advance can on the distributor etc etc...

Got the steering wheel installed, I had to adjust the horn button contacts for the button to work, it was initially stuck on




And pulled the shift lever, beat up as I expected ( it would drop into reverse when I slid the column straight, came out pretty easy after I got annoyed and sprayed some wd-40 on the roll pin





Going to go get plates and a sticker for it today!
