My '55 Chevy BelAir Blog

From One Chevy Tri-Five Enthusiast To Another!

Finally I can breathe fresh air!

I’ve pretty much finished up under the dash and proceeded to the engine compartment. This wasn’t too bad. Again with the neatness. The way it was around the engine before with all the wires about, I was determined to have as few wires showing as possible. I routed the wires, covered with wire tubing and clamped them as far out of sight as possible. I even did some drilling and re-routing through rubber grommets to make this smooth and clean looking.

When I took the headlight buckets out to clean and paint them one of the gaskets was so deteriorated that I had to order new ones, I’m still waiting as they were on back order. Really can’t reassemble yet, but I can still wire.

Up ahead, I think that’s a light at the end of the tunnel!
