  • Making progress...63 Hawk

    I finished installing all the exterior trim today...except for the emblems on the doors and C pillar.









    I'll start putting the glass back in tomorrow.

    I'll be installing new carpet this week. Anybody have any hints for me? Looks tough to get all the holes in the right places.

                    Dick, the car is absolutely beautiful. Your hard work has really paid off and you should be extremely proud.

                        Also, except for the emblem on the grille. Be sure to put the door chevrons on correctly and use the correct ones. 1963 and 1964 are different and the right door ones go on in the opposite order ('63: RWB & '64 BWR).

                            Dick,

                            for the carpet, I would just take a single edged razor blade and cut "X"s in the carpet where the pedals, etc. come up through so that you can lay the carpet down. Then when it is exactly in place, mark with chalk where the holes need to be opened up so they look neat and trim to fit. The "X"s will disappear when it is laid down; just brush the chalk off with your hand when you're done. You will need a little grommet for the dimmer switch, but all the new carpet sets I've installed have come with the grommet.

                            You'll need lots of razor blades, as cutting the carpet will dull them quickly, and hacking at the carpet with a dull razor blade is a good way to get frustrated and/or hurt yourself.

                            good luck,

                            nate
