Im glad to see Faulkner back at home with a little more progress done. I have had the worst luck with auto shippers, I shipped two of my cars from NC to CA and when they arrived my 61 Ford had some really bad door dings from where they had opened the door while it was on the car hauler and the doors hit the structure of the hauler :evil: ohh i was mad! the second time i tried to ship a car, haulers kept flaking on me so much and for so long i wound up just taking leave, bought a plane ticket and then rented a uhaul and trailer to get a car home. Hopefully your luck turns better with your shipper.

It's not very balmy in the Faulkner garage - 45 degrees, really too cold to rustproof the door skins. I don't know if there will be a warm spell coming up, but I'll need a break in the weather before I can really finish preparations for taking Faulkner to the body shop.

...and I'll need my power steering pump back! It's been a month now. I'm starting to get ticked.

Meanwhile, I set to work on removing the door lock and handle from the passenger side. The clip that slides over the lock didn't want to budge, so I figured I'd concentrate on removing the handle, and maybe get to the clip once the handle was off. But unlike the driver's side - where there was enough room to get a socket on a 1/4" extender with a swivel adapter - there was no room on the passenger side between the outer door skin and the glass. So, I removed the two bolts that hold the rear track in place, and the glass moved to where I was able to make some room.

...and it's a good thing I did! I dropped the track and removed it - the glass channel whiskers are completely gone. I didn't realize there was glass channel here, it was completely invisible inside the door. Oh, well; I have to replace the vent channel on the leading edge anyway, I bought a pair from Goers years ago, and only got around to replacing the one on the drivers side. So I'll be ordering more channel (Bernbaum has it, ask me how I know (Martha!)). So, I guess I'll remove the passenger vent and replace the channel now. Can you say, mushroom factor?

At least the handle is off! And through the hole in the door, I was able to give a couple sharp taps to the clip and budge it to remove the lock. All without Matthew being here! And, a factor of 4-5 times the effort and time to do it... :oops:

Yay! You have 178 days left.

We did the drivers side vent window in 2006, I still remember that!

Matthew, if I get Faulkner's interior all put back together before Carlisle - X-Mat, carpet, windlace, seats, radio, etc. - could you help me that week with the trim? A week from today I plan to take the aluminum for reanodizing (except for the toilet seat trim - I love what Dick did with that).

I am sure once all the pieces are shinny and new they will practically install them selves. And if Matthew is there giving a hand how could it not be show ready in time :D Looking forward to seeing it all together :D
