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....
