I'd get the crepe off before it rains. That's more clean up if it does.

Hi Tbirds8!

Thanks! Yup, I will do that. The Bird is in it's nest outta the rain. On Saturday, it is supposed to be nice, and around 62 when we work on the Bird. One of the things I intend to do is to get that crepe off. Another is to look under the floor carpeting, and back seats, on top of the heater box, and see if I can find the Build sheet! I would love it if I can find it. It would be a great record to add to the original instruction booklet that came with the car.

Ray:

I just noticed that you live in San Antonio as I do.

Where abouts are you? I'm on Hwy 281 and Evans Rd.

If you want to talk on the phone, send me a PM.

Nice to have another Squarebird in the neighborhood -- finally.

Hi Bill,

It isn't to far from that temperature here today. I have kept me and Da Bird in Da Nest all day. It will be like that somewhat tomorrow also, but on Saturday, it should be fairly clear and in the 60's. Hopefully, we will get the new alternator on Da Bird and checked out. I have pulled that crepe paper off and will clean that area before putting the vinyl tape on. I hope to get to that while my mechanic is working on the front of the car.

I have found, through a new friend here, parts to do my exterior dress up with! Except for the back part. If anyone has a spare rear end dress up kit that replaces that area above the tail lights, please let me know. It looks like I will have all the front end parts taken care of. Ray

Hi Bill,

Yes, I was talking about those end pieces that are above the taillights, and around them on the left and right. I am aware they were dealer add-ons. I will probably do what you did. Look for an extra set and then have them chromed. I will have everything for up front that I will need for the external dress up kit. Not the back yet. Thanks!

Ray
