Probably going way overboard but decided to sand and paint the jack and base. Will find the jack handle and do it at some point too. Used my steel wheel brush and disc sander to get most of the rust off both the base and the jack.

Base before:


Jack before:


Base after:


Jack after sanding:


Painted and will remount the assembly in the right rear quarter soon:

going to far ? no way,....

a nice rig deserves that,....

and it is nice knowing even the jack has been restored,....

I have done this to every restoration.

and as always,....very nice job.

hope you never need to use it, cause that means a flat tire....

Great thread, Rob! Thanks for taking the time to document your build - am following the progress & working our GW accordingly - the pictures help me replace/restore things back to original.

I've also got TBI EFI & am currently running a K&N air filter. I'd like to run an original breather for appearance & to quieten down the noise. I noticed that you're also running TBI EFI w/a factory original breather.

Question: Did you have to modify the original breather to fit the TBI throttle body? If so, what'd you have to do?

Thanks for the cheers. As with most air cleaners from the day, the stock one is a standard size that'll work with just about any carb or TBI/EFI setup from what I've seen. I did absolutely nothing to my air cleaner beyond putting those rubber hose bits in to keep the vacuum operated door open full time, since there's no need for the choke mechanism anymore.

Received my new front 3-point seat belts from TGW a couple days ago, so put them in:
Driver side:


The new floor mounted receivers, with the hard plastic sheaths installed:


The new seat belt retractor assemblies are a bit different than the original belts, but I think I can still make the original covers work, so cleaned and painted them:


The original belt end covers were in surprisingly good shape so cleaned and painted them:

Good deal; thanks for the insight. Will be on the hunt for a factory breather.
