Faceplate is spring loaded out with a 5.6lb Sugatsune magnetic latch and euro hinges. Works flawlessly so far. Turns on and off, pauses and plays music and other functions with ignition via Tasker.

Haha, just saw this. I cross my fingers every year! Been a full time student for a long time so that usually helps but I believe that credit is no longer available... I think it was the Hope credit

remote mirror

That cash was smoldering in your pocket anyway, and soon would have spontaneously combusted had you not utilized it for a worthy cause.

Been following your thread on and off now for a while. You’r doin great work! I am also doing a full nut-n-bolt resto 68 conv. I am almost 5 years into it and loving (almost) every moment. Getting it ready for final paint and have a question regarding the paint used on your endura bumper. Everything I have read says the primer and clear coat MUST have a flex agent added to allow for flexing and different expansion rates. Did your painter (or you) add a flex agent to the bumper paint?

I did the resurfacing and priming on the endura with SEM flexible primer and my painter was given EXPLICIT instructions to use flex additive in the paint. That said, I was not there and cannot attest. We will know in a few years!

Got the Trico 16" classic wipers installed today! They look excellent, found them for 7 dollars each at advance auto parts! Same ones resto places and eBay are selling for more than double that!

Two kinds of windshield polishes on the way to combat the 40 years of haze and deposits...
