    Its been a while since I put anything on about Lucy. Today I reinstalled the dashboard and hookedup all the wiring. put on new starter solenoid and voltage regulator(the newer electronic type) and hooked up the battery. Aside from the right front headlight assembly not there, everything worked.. horn too. was kinda nice to see her partially apring to life. The engine was supposed to be brought here today, it didnt make it.. so it should be here tomorrow, My garage looks like an O.R. Everything is laid out ready to go. Sunday am going up to fresno to pick up the parts from Anne and Mr. Biggs. Then to put the rest of her back together. I cant wait to drive her. I'm taking pictures so will post them as soon as developed. Take care eveyrone and thanks for the help!

    To properly install the headliner it is best to have the front and rear glass out. That is not to say it can't be done. If they are in and do not need to come out for any other reason, I would try leaving the rear one or one of them in, and just fighting the other one.

    Can the headliner be installed after the windshield/backglass? Thanks for the help everyone.

    Screw the association. When was the last time they did anything for
    you?? I have one also, everytime I have contacted them about things,
    they tell me "its not our problem, call _____". I still have this
    dumb ladder device tied to the neighbors fence behind me with a yellow
    extention cord, and than an orange extention cord tied to the top of
    the ladder and to the roof!! I see it out my french doors. Freaking
    useless organizations that only screw YOU the good neighbors over. If
    the damn ladder was tied to MY fence, the cord would have been cut the
    next day. Then there is their barking dog all night, and the smell of
    dog feces coming through the fence next to our roses.

    Sorry ... venting. I would tell the Assoc to ____ off.

    That'd work real well... if you're in an association you know how they work. They would issue fines for noncompliance, if you say "screw you" they file a lien against your property and have the problem resolved at your expense. There is no excuse to get upset if the association rules are in place prior to your moving in. I refuse to live in anywhere where there is an association... I told the real estate agent up front when we started to narrow down the property search.

    Well if you can't make it then you can come up to Fresno on a parts run soon. It would give me more time to get stuff together.

    Hi Guys, I'm not sure if I can make it to Selma. If any parts are available, I'll definitely find a way to make it work. I'm in no way trying to put pressure on anyone as we all have issues and commitments to deal with. I'd love to see all the Studeys and meet everyone, right now I have to be very judicious with my resources. Again, thanks for all the support in trying to save her.
