Looks good so far. One of the difficult parts yet to come is that fiberglass(if you want to call it that) original tank. They leaked BRAND NEW right at the first gas fill in 68! My advice would be a new one or a plastic replacement. Do not spend money on a paint job then find out that it leaks like a sieve! A nice project going so far and you have the right attitude about restorations. Prices can get stupid only if you let them. Very few people know correct anyway and you just don't say "original" if it's not. But most don't care. They see your practicality. That was a good tip on moving the condensor into the open and doubling all the grounds too. I would add to put stover or nylock nuts on parts you don't want to fall off. Have fun. I look forward to this thread.
