Nice intro there! Glad you didn't hurt yourself too bad when polishing those rings aye. Jeez! That could of gone a lot worse. I like to use my welding gloves when doing stuff like that also. I had a few close calls when doing my alternator so know what it's like!

For sure. Half inch cut to my thumb was WITH work gloves (those black ones from Harbor Freight). I felt the wind in my hair when that thing went past my head.

Different quality of hood release cable between 74 and 76. We also compare to an aftermarket cable..

Yeah, it is a LOT of stuff. In my case I had labeled everything that came off the car. I was able to match things up based on what my labels said. It got tricky with some of the sill rubbers for the glass. There are two different curves and thicknesses for front door and rear quarter sill rubbers. I just figured this out AFTER cutting the wrong one to length (video footage no one will ever see LOL).
