2126, some assembly required, batteries included

All is painted and reassembling the hood and related hardware. Would anyone have a picture of a 21st series that shows where the pins, pads, and spring loaded safety catch might go on top of the fenders. Hood release is installed on both sides but it has been a while (as well as a different shop) since this hardware was removed
Thanks
Bob

Since we all seem to have some extra time on our well-washed hands....
Have my 2126 back in my own garage after realizing the resto shop didn't really have any inclination to do much other than buff paint. Tying up some loose ends (wire ends to be exact) and installing trim, hood details, etc.
Some of the things the resto shop did I'm not totally sure are correct. The battery is grounded only to the chassis which they drilled and tapped to secure the +bat cable. I think I remember that isnt necessarily bad as a secondary ground but the primary ground might want to attach directly to the generator....I think...Cant seem to find a forum topic that addresses that though I know I have seen one or more. Also, the business ends of the speedo cable and overdrive lockout cable are taped to the chassis. Need suggestions on what tape I should use LOL. or...where they should mate up, both are presently exiting the firewall and taped together down the ride side inside of tire.
Any pictures of the above AND
Front fender brace attachment
dust/mud shields on sides of engine compartments. I think I have a few from Howard that show the hood latch hardware with some of the shields included. Hoping to wrap up under the hood soon
Thanks in advance.

Stock battery cable ground point is on I believe, the front bolt under the generator which holds the generator bracket to the block. IMO, the extra ground to the frame or body is a good idea. I would move the main ground to the block so the starter will have adequate current and pick up a universal ground strap from Napa & run it between the block and the frame or body for the extra.

The lockout and speedo cables along with the temp gauge bulb exit the large firewall hole at the left top of the depression in the firewall. Temp bulb makes a smooth curve to the left rear of head and OD and Speedo cables go toward the passenger side to a clamp on the firewall. If you have the R9 OD the lockout cable is also clamped to the frame top and goes to the passenger side of OD to another clamp and bracket on the crossover and then the lockout lever. If the R11 OD it needs to cross over top of trans and get to the left side where it is clamped at a bracket and OD. I think the speedo adapter is on the left and also goes over the top of trans but cannot remember for sure without crawling under. Whichever side, it needs to follow a smooth route to the adapter connection so be sure no kinks or sharp bends.

Howard, Thanks again for your insights. Yes, there is a clamp still clamped on the OD cable. Will look for the two mounting holes. Now that I know the speedo cable is on the passenger side, I should be able to find it's home.
Lots of minor details....

On your mention of the fender panels, I don't have any good views showing every brace and panel but here are a few shots of the fender panels showing them as they were attached when the fenders were removed. In addition to the top brace on the mud guard portion there is a long brace not shown that goes at the bottom -- attaches just to the rear of the wheel opening and goes over to the lower inner fender panel.

Again, thanks for the pics. They are a big help in trying to figure what panel goes where. I have several of the braces but might be a few short. Will have to see what fits where and then replace what I don't have.
Any idea what the small panel is in photo?

The plate is the floor plate covering the brake and clutch pedals and is upside down in the photo as to how it is positioned in the car. With the way the clutch side has been cut and widened and a lesser extent the brake side I suspect at one time -- or maybe still -- there was serious wear on the pedal shaft or bushings and the wear is enough a pedal is able to wobble side to side and scrape the edges of the original opening. There is only one grease fitting located on the brake side of the shaft and I suspect just like my car, grease was sparingly applied or else the grease was applied until the grease person saw it running out of the brake pedal and quit so the grease application never reached the clutch side.

The long flat braces, if approximately 13-14 inches long on the straight portion between the bendups, look like those that go between the bottom of the fender and the side panels. Don't recognize the round ones without more checking but they may be the top braces. As the photo shows, mine are flat like the bottoms but possibly there was a change or a difference for the 2126 vs the 2122. They could go at the top between the mud shields and fender edge. You might check the bends to see if they look correct. Also might be for something else so I will try to look and find something similar in another spot but the only round braces I can think of at the moment are fairly thick and on the radiator cradle.

Gottit.....
Hoping the Q-tine is over soon so I can get a few things powder coated. Still lots of busy work to do tho. Thanks to your photos, I was able to locate the two holes to mount the OD cable bracket on the frame. Will clean that bracket today and undercoat it before bolting it down.
As for the brackets (round). It may be that they are just inventory I have from my dad's barn. He was strictly Packard until 1964 and knew the local service personnel (Gibbs Machinery, Columbia, SC) well. When they took over the VW imnports, they called and gave him three days to empty their parts bins to make room for new inventory ('63). Still have some of that laying around.
Cheers
