The last year did not see a lot of progress on the 64 SC specifically, but I built a new garage with 4-post lift and lots of cabinets to hold parts. It is nearly done, cabinet trim and cabinet doors and the final inspection are all that remain), then I will start organizing all the parts now in boxes and spread around. Now the 64 has a perch above the action in the garage and walking under it every day gets my thoughts back to where they should be, and hopefully progress will be more rapid this year (although maybe not; I just pulled plans to build a guest house and I have some furniture to make that I promised my wife...). I just sent a bunch of parts to be powder-coated (including axle tubes and brake backing plates), but I was not sure about these parts:

rear spring plates
rear heater valves

Were spring plates originally painted, or were they bare steel with just a heavy wax coating? Were the rear heater valves painted or zinc plated and undercoated or ?? Were the clamps painted or plated?

Photos of the area where the shop was built, construction and now:

I just had my SC brake calipers rebuilt by Centric, and in general I am quite pleased with the results, but there are some small details that are not quite right. i.e. the bleeder valves and caps are not original Ate, and the small tube that goes between the caliper halves does not have the correct ATF nuts (10mm instead of 11). But these are small details and I know most people would not care. They did an excellent job with the plating and finish. And they did return all the original parts so I can reinstall the original Ate bleeders and tubing. The pistons were the originals, not new, which also was a bit of a surprise.
