    Went ahead and ordered one.
    I think this is the last part I need to finish the car at least to get it out of the paint booth.

    Oh yeah also see you post quite a bit on the FE Forum, I just peruse there.
    I was able to reuse my original rod by just "bending" the flared end in to remove and then "bend" it back out with new one on.
    How's the paint looking?

    Paint is waiting for the weather.
    We have had 100+ weather here for the last 3 week's and looks like it will be here for a few more.
    My shop has no heat or ac just a porta cool.
    My activer and reducer are 70 to 90 degree's but I don't like to paint when it is over 75 degree's.
    Decided to go with Scarlet Fever pearl for the Ranchero and am going with burgandy for the 63.
    I am thinking about having a friend of mine paint both of them as he has a paint booth.
    Did my 428 [short block] final assembly yesterday after mocking it up last month, now just need to take the head's to my machinest in Texas and have them redone.
