Inner Fender Question

Hello Everyone,I am installing the inner fenders and cannot remember or find if a bolt closes the gap on the inner fender to chassis.  There is a large hole about 1/2" or 3/4" diameter.  I am thinking this may be critical to keep everything in alignment.  The picture is taken from under the blower motor assembly.See More

It was at a restoration shop for 15 months until last January-  that supposedly did a bunch of wiring repairs including rebuilding the gas gauge that still hasn't worked properly, and the clock that hasn't worked, and re-soldering the broken wires in the drive door. All window and seat controls appear to be…

Dash removal

Posted by Jake Mickley on October 9, 2019 at 12:06am 9 Comments

Hello everyone,

On a 63 CDV, if a guy wanted to remove the entire dash to get all the metal painted, and do some other things behind there, how would he go about doing that?  I checked here and the shop manual, but can't find a complete guide.

As always, and help or direction is appreciated.  Thanks!
