Nice looking floor pan  drool5 Didnt know the car needed a new floor though  shruggy

It really doesn't need a complete pan, but the driver's side front as a huge hole in it and the tranny hump around the shifter area is all cut up from the former owner's future plan on installing a 4-speed hump... I don't want things patched together everywhere.. Soooooo, I'm just going to go from seam to seam on this one... It'll all be new and in great shape..........

Well, with this car, not to belittle it any, I'm not going to be super anal as I am with the Daytona. And, the fact there are no external body panels to have to worry about relating to waves or paint makes it better.... My Joe-Dirt 500........

Update today.. A very good day out in the garage.. As been updated, been working on the grille and naturally the headlamps are part of it. Then, I went to the parking lights and while I was on a roll, I tackled the hood indicators..  yesnod

Came out pretty good... So, electrically, it's getting better...  2thumbs

So a quick question.   My C500 is missing the two thin rubber seals on either side of the grill, on the outer, black, filler pieces.   I used one of your fine pictures of your effort to show what I am talking about.   Can someone help me with where to find these or a clever fascimile?

Troy,
 I 've never had mine off to really examine the rubber, but could you find small diameter vacuum line and slice it lengthwise?

I can email Mike to see if he has some. He mentioned he wasn't running another 500 grille kit again. But, he may have extra material.....

I don't think it would stay on properly. The original had grooves/ridges on them that ran the length of the rubber piece. Mike's are smooth. So, they are not 100% accurate, but better than nothing. Now, maybe, using Chris' idea, take OEM correct wiper washer hose and slice it length-wise making dang sure you used a REALLY good adhesive.....

Here is a cross sectional pic of an original rubber trim piece for the headlight/grill shield.   My fingers holding it, unfortunately the person showing me only had about a three inch piece left!

Today worked on the wipers... It is definitely something that needs to be corrected from a safety point of view and has to work for inspection. The original driver's side pivot was seized solid, hence causing the wipers not to work. But, they work now !!   icon_smile_big

Did you replace the pivot or did you manage to get it broken loose?  I ask because both of mine are siezed, and am looking for replacements.


What do you do, get in the car and watch tv?  Cheap drive in theater?  Cool either way 2thumbs

Yeap, watch Graveyard Carz in my 500 or Daytona, which ever one is in the back of the garage by the TV.... Very comfortable......  icon_smile_big

Seriously, I found a complete setup on moparts. They are the exact same thing with the same stampings and all as that which was on the 500. One of my former pivots is fine. Maybe I can work out the other and send them your way.......
