Hello.

What color should the pan located under headlights behind the front bumper have?
Have seen both black and body color. (pic)

Where can i find a new seal to the seal located behind the wind shield molding?

Whats the most common failure to vaccum leak to the head light doors?

The head light doors opens within a hour on this car, my former car never opened them, not even over a 3 months period stand still.

Almost done deassembling before paint. Front extensions, frontside markers, doors and rear wheel weel chrome, rear convertible trim left and some door adjustments needed.

To deassemble a car from CA is really nice, no rust.

Thanks/ Tommy.

Whats the most common failure to vaccum leak to the head light doors? Rotted, dried out hoses. (råtne og tørre vakumslanger)

I am looking forward to see the car in fresh new paint. I guess you will keep it red? What is the original color?

I would be looking at some of the cougar and mustang houses for the header weatherstrip, as for the vacuum problems, The vac. motor first then the check valve ,headlight switch and the hoses for splits where the make connections.
