There has been a while since updating the Columbia6-site.The most of the time waiting for registration plates and insurence.I have driven the car about 100 km total and the engine has been running some more hours.I have mounted the restored choke button.I have bought step plates to mount later.Some problems with the third gear but I am working on that.Next work is to adjust the tappet clearance.
Now has the parts been mounted that shows the car is nearly to be completed.
The levers in the steering wheel has been attached and also the linkage for that but it has much work left there for a smooth working.
The sending unit for the fuel in the rear is also in place.
The rear lamps has got there holes and is now mounted but not yet installed electrical.
The vacuum tank,ignition,fuse holder and the aluminum plates in the floor boards are also fitted.The floor in the front is in place with switch and starter.
Even if the summer has been very warm I had done some major jobs.The fenders and the splash apron are now in place.The fuel sender,radiator,steering wheel,hood, and the holders for the hood with plates.The instruments with the restored amp and oil are there also.The speedometer are there also but not functioning. I must solve the problem with the mounting on the front wheel first.
The work the last weeks has been mounting the new tires to the new felloes.The handles are also mounted in place.The front window has glass been mounted and the rubber in the middle.The mounting of the steering wheel column has started with the bracket on the instrument panel.The rods for the ignition and gas is not yet ready.
The work has advanced with the interior and the top assembly is now mounted so the top can be mounted.The rear wood window has been delayed so the rest of the top is waiting.The speedometer has been cleaned and painted new glass is needed.The fuel tank has new measuring plate being made.In the radiator shell has the front curtain been mounted.
