We’re getting more and more journals with proper or even better restoration work like this. From yours to JitteryJoe and then Snader. It all makes me want to take it further and on this car (Snader level won’t happen on this one) I have a lot of you to thank for that.

Very inspiring!

Did you use a steamer for all of the bay cleanup?

"harness unwrap and rewrap with euro connectors"

I'll be installing my Bosch Euro headlights soon. Did you mate the US connectors with the Euro connectors?
The steam cleaner was a new method. I started to remove the cosmoline with fuel and that got old fast. The steamer with the right bristle head shocked me with how good it was. I’ll post a video. It was useful on everything though including gummy harness connectors.

The Euro connectors were installed by cutting off the US connectors. Unwrapping the harness was to pull the corner parking light wire to power the city light.

I put a steam cleaner on my xmas list based on the amazon link you provided in another thread.
Here’s the one I use that comes with all the right attachments. The black bristle brushes don’t scratch.
