More progress. Photos uploaded in correct order - displayed in reverse!
1st pic - I have 2 NOS control throttles and neither had the mounting holes tapped - how the heck is one supposed to mount the thing? Bought a tap. Stock throttle is on the right.
2nd pic - cleaned up and painted the cage, shined up all the hardware, left the bands & "A" totally alone.
3rd pic - these little doodads fit the hood pivots perfectly. Never saw what part GE used for this so improvisation again.
4th pic - steel wool goes a long way to cleaning up headlight buckets.
5th pic - dashboard and steering wheel are next followed by relays and contactors.
