We has both antennas I took them over to him yesterday he was going to test fit them. I am taking the Autronic eye over tomorrow to test fit that myself. Thanks again for the info on the trunk inserts.Make DAM sure he fits the antenna before he goes any further. I have found the templates to not be 100% true. You don't want to have to adjust the holes after painting. Trust me on this MOST ALL OF THE ONES I HAVE INSTALLED NEEDED ADJUSTMENT OF THE TOP HOLE TO THE INSIDE TO MAKE SURE THE ANTENNA ARE PLUMB......!!!!!!!!
I would also caution you to NOT install the insert until after paint. You don't want a lot of new generation paint on them, or it will coat them. The original lacquer paint soaked into the material. Like this!!!!!!! After I have painted the inside of the trunk lid, I tape off the metal area
and glue each NOS insert in place. Then spray a thinned out mix about 50% reducer and spray the insert, enough to put color on it.

I believe I was told in a trifive thread that one way to identify the year of the treadvac unit is to look at the base of the vacuum line right where it mounts to the treadlevac.I’m getting ready to send my treadle vac off to be rebuilt but I want to make sure this is for a 57 any help would be appreciated.
Why does it have a 69-72 truck [probably GMC] pass side ex manifold. I have seen more GMC with air pumps than Chevy.Engine and transmission restoration photos
More to come with the engine and transmission we nailed down the guy that is restoring our engine and he promised that we would have it done in 2 weeks.
Did he fix the big gap at the top of the door to quarter yet? Stainless would be my last issue, he can fill those holes and drill more.The biggest issue we have to work with is the holes for the stainless on the passenger side 1/4 panel don’t line up with the door.
Yes that was a easy fix the door just needed to be adjusted correctly he didn’t have the door adjusted when that picture was taken. Things are coming along great I think we was planning on painting the trunk lid today I was to busy to stop by today I will check tomorrow.Did he fix the big gap at the top of the door to quarter yet?
