Noticed small leak under the car and first thought was that is it engine or transmission leaking oil? Luckily not… after instant check noticed that the washer reservoir was empty so that´s the reason for leak. Washer fluid was dripping to engine bay and then to the garage floor.
I took it off and noticed that the leak is coming beside the washer pump. After removing, cleaning and reinstallation the pump, no major leak any more, so hopefully now ok.
Also installed the splash shields in the front fenders.
And noticed also the nice TTI exhaust tips installed by the previous owner:
And it was also time to take the good old Autosol wonder cream from the shelf and shine the door sill plates… works everytime!
Redyed the door trims and bucket seat covers with VHT vinyl dye. Not perfect but much better than the old ones!
I put the new trunk floor mat and spare tire hold down kit. Also glued the loose console trim and changed the broken shifter boot. Looking good!
First cruising now done with the GTX. I have to say that this GTX is much more cruising friendly car than T/A… power steering makes it very easy to roll at the parking lot. Weather was quite nice for convertible even though the nights are getting cold… next time sweaters or leather jacket could be ok.
Apparently I need to start thinking of new name for my blog because just arrived from Stockholm and here´s my new hobby car: ´69 Plymouth GTX Convertible, 440 engine, Dana 60, 4-speed, A34 Super Track Pack and Air Grabber… more details later, stay tuned!

And some theme music for the topless GTX… especially like the part where Don Henley sings "you got your top pulled down, radio/sunglasses on baby":
