Great, thank you for your answers. I've found an original retractable oval antenna, buy Will keep my fix repro antenna, as my car is equipped with AM/FM radio headunit.

Well, now that I read back over my comments, I guess I over did it. I was half joking, but I think it crossed over too far to the other side. I guess I should have put a couple smiley faces after that last comment..  :)  That wasn't fair. I don't have any idea who even owns the company. How the heck could they take action if they don't even know what happened. I emailed Bob Sellers and asked him to read this thread. Again, up at 5am, out of cell range until late tonight. Same all week. I wasn't joking when I said I don't have time to call. We will see what happens.. And of course, I apologize, just a little frustrated.
 Let me also say the couple that were doing the delivery, did NOT leave me stranded. I told them to go a ahead and head out. Just wanted to make that clear. They made plenty of effort to help... 

 I don't have pictures yet, as I am not with the car until the weekend. However, I think we all know by now I am some what of a picture taker if there ever was one... And when I get a chance, I will surely get some great close-ups.   Danny
Restoration / Re: 302 Valve Cover refinish

I have a 69 302 with repop aluminum valve covers that are too shiny.  What it the best process to get these to the dull finish look of the original aluminum valve covers?

Send them to Jerry MacNeish. His restoration process is spot on from the ones I've seen. I'll likely forward mine to him if I live long enough.

Both of mine are Norwoods. I have yet to brave the barn to see what the 12A '68 Norwood L78 has on it, but I will add as soon as I can get to it. 01C car is an X77, 03D is the Z11.

Spreadsheet looks good, probably better if you keep control of it. Remarking files gets a little haphazard around here in previous threads - can be disastrous !

Looking at the larger photos of the Stoddart car above, it is interesting to note that it has an early '67 subframe on it without the large holes on the front frame horns.

Here's another vintage pic of the car as found on the Marshall Robbins facebook page.

Some additional information on this car has been posted here...

Sounds like it may be resold prior to restoration but I guess we'll see.
Pics of the car, the VIN, cowl tag and hidden VINs. It's the real deal.

Kurt - I'll send you the error message screenshot.
There's a material called 'Wire Eze' that is used for slipping electrical wiring thru conduit, and which evaporates fairly quickly...  I've also used 'hand cleaning goop' (any brand) to do the same thing... it's extremely slippery but is easy to clean off (and I think it even 'rejuvenates' rubber parts.. :)
