I used Loctite 660 to retain my top bearing.
How much of the car builders deadener did you have to order to complete your floor?
I have a kit I ordered, just wasn't sure if it would be enough.

That’s 3.6m3 of body deadened.
Or two boxes.
Not as sticky as I thought it would be.
Make sure the surface is super clean and dry.

Found these when I ran out of aluminum tape.
I just used reinforced silver gaffer tape as that’s what I had.

Couple progress pick of steering column.
One all apart cleaned and ready for paint.
Other painted and ready for reassembly. Painted Satin Black.

Can’t take credit for the paint, previous owner is local and he is helping out with all things paint.
He got all the gear to do it.

Got new ignition barrel
New top bearing JB Welded in already
New lower bearing
New firewall grommet
New start switch
New indicator stalk and switch.

So have a conundrum today.
Assemble steering column
Or
Chrome Bar Bonanza at Lakeside Raceway

Ye took the lakeside option.
Pretty good turnout.
Stated raining so left after a couple hours.
Only took 2 photos of a barra powered VH commodore.
Is it wrong to say I wanna barra the LX?
Got some vids of the cruise session though.

How do I post videos?

But still got the column together this arvo.
Got a new indicator stalk and switch to repair the broken bits.
Pi$$ed off though as I chipped the paint on the honey pot.

Easiest just to upload them to YouTube and link them here (in a new thread).

Black Texta... err... I mean... touchup pen?
