OK - Pulled the link - will make some corrections and post in the library

Brant was nice enough to send a better picture of the convertible rear plastic window shot that I was using from an earlier post of his.
Thanks to all

Last week I started to read this article but than had to go on to other things.  Yesterday, and again today, when I click on it to continue reading, I got a message "This page can't be displayed."  Any thoughts as to why?  Has anyone else had this problem?  Thanks.

after looking over the article, there wasn't anything about the steel rim stamp, eg 4MC

Correct - I chose to leave the wheels and tires out of part I  and plan to include them (all as many variations as possible) with the tires in the next section.

There are likely at least 20+ items we didn't cover in this first part. If we put them all in one article it might take along time for some to load given their connections

Looking to interpret a date code, I remembered and found this thread.  The link in the OP is dead.  I looked through the library and did not find anything.  Help?  Thanks

Look under 68's

I saw this the other day that it wasn't in the 67's in the Library section.

Now Jeff will fix it I am sure, meant to PM him about it and forgot

Guessing that you tried to use the link on the first page.  That link was posted for review and suggestion part of the process and has been correct and added to a number of times since it was posted a month ago.

After that is done the new link can be found in any of the year specific Library section of the site in the Members area. Take a look there and let me know if that doesn't work for you

File is large - took my machine and connection 2 minutes to load today when I tested it  ::)
