Still working on multiple components at the same time. Making progress with stripping overspray, undercoating, and (unfortunately) the original paint from the headlight brackets.

And progress on cleaning the blower section of the fresh air box. I got most of the undercoating off, and then tackled the fossilized duct tape that the PO used to keep the power plug in place.

This was not coming off with any solvent, at least that would not erode the plastic housing, so I tried shaving, using several new razor blades and lots of patience.

After wiping with GoofOff, which reacts slightly with the plastic, the shine cam back.

Next, I opened up the blower section so I could replace the baffle rings. Somehow the PO got undercoating in here (see baffle on the left).

Since I was getting ahead of myself with the fresh air box, since I need to install the dash control levers and cables first, and that means I need to install the dash. And before doing that, I need to replace the top padded vinyl and the face vinyl. Note what seems to be a buckle along the lower edge.

Another view of the lower dash edge. This should be straight, right?

I agree - great reference.

Has anyone (admins) considered this for the "Classics" thread?

Got the fresh air box back together. The little circle clips are a PIA. And, yes, I did break off one of the plastic tabs.

I also cleaned up the control levers. Quite a bit of dirt and some corrosion.

Check this fresh air fan switch for continuity on all 3 speeds before installing. I didn't so didn't have all the fan speeds once installed and had to remove the switch again with all the associated cuss words to sort the issue.

Looking good.....
