    i am working on getting some pics . as for my plans, I am going to drive it and work on the mechanical items first. When winter hits here I want to start interior work. I am learning there will be many item I will have to fabricate as there are not as many repops out there as there are for other cars.

    :huh:Yeah most wagon specific parts are rarer than hens teeth! That's why I found a parts car (but I haven't the heart to dismantle it!).....Longroofs Rule!

    Oh oh. I smell a resto project in the making. We’ll know if you’re living in it in a month Mrs Wagoninsane wasn’t on board. Lol

    Fuel gauge was not working but after doing some research I found the problem to be the sending unit. I removed it from the tank and with some cleaning I was able to get it to work again.( saved me trying to find one)
    Now I need to find a new float, filter sock and rubber gasket and put it back together.
    The tank inside looks great but the sending unit needed cleaned and the contacts brushed so it was getting a good contact again. Good day of wrenching!
