BMO..
With all new springs front, back and all new bushings. She's probably going to sit like a frog looks, until everything settles down. Probably going to hop like one too..!!
Trim is on...
In this pic, you can see how far my door sticks out in the back. It's getting better as the weather strip softens up. I guess time will tell.







Came out better then I expected. Always nervous about drilling holes in the paint.
And yes Bob...
There are different lengths of wheel well trim. I was able to make what I had work. You'd think after 15 years of collecting parts and pieces that I'd be able to find the proper trim to use..?? Out of all the pieces that I have purchased, I ended up using what was on the car and I put that on it back in the late 80's.
The fronts go all the way down and cover the front of the rocker. The rears do not. They only go to the top of the rocker. I was able to get enough of the rocker cover to slide back enough to make the room.

Bought a pair of window cranks from one of the vendors. Says on the web site that they are for 68-73 AMC cars. Went to put them on today and found this.



Found a couple originals and used them instead. Then after I put the drivers side on I went to roll the window up and down. Then the handle fell off in my hand.
I powered through and was able to put the handle back on. But, it's loose and will probably fall off in my hand again.





Gonna go dig for a nice pair of originals and use those instead.

Those black door panels look very nice against the blue paint!  Nice job.
