    The last couple of days have been very productive. Got the windshield back in. Thanks for the advice on the dish washing soap! I also use a small cord that I put in the gasket and push the gasket /window up to the frame and pull on the cord and it pulls the gasket into the correct side of the frame.

    I re-torqued the heads and my minor water leak disappeared. Added the steering stabilizer, The boot over the 4wd lever, finished up the dash wiring. I am waiting on speaker wire to arrive so I can get that run to speakers. I cut the holes for the front speakers. Put the vent in on the drivers side. Added the windshield wiper motor. Brakes are blead. I actually started it last night and with the rear on jack stands ran it thru the gears. The guy that re-did my C4 told me that is the best way to break in a rebuilt transmission. I have to take a break from it for a short while. Going on a mission trip with my church. Stay tuned for when I get back.

    Well I drove it for the first time and over the weekend got the soft top and doors fitted. Also did final sanding for paint. Hope to paint this coming Sat.

    Note the soft doors did not fit! I had to take the Vinyl off and cut them down Not I have to get them re-covered.
