Thanks Dave, I figured they were using up what was in inventory, after many restorations you can just "tell" when something seems original. Also interesting they did not use the rubber mounted headlight bucket either which was in use at the time.

Finally primed from top to bottom, I seem to forget the major marathon that painting involves and how much time it takes. Have a few spots of fish eye to figure out but overall pleased it's done.

Looking good! It will not be long now before it's back to green. Painting is always my favorite part because it really shows you all the hard work that's been put in.

I don't know of any source for just the rubber seal, all I see available is the complete window.

Brake shoes came from Memphis Equipment.

Had a excavator on site today so it was the perfect opportunity to break down the last tire(spare)I am removing, even then it still took a half hour to get it off the rim, it was really stuck. It was a fair day today so I jumped right on blasting and priming the wheel. A test of the fuel line today shows it's plugged so I am removing and making new one today before work.
