First full restore sense I bought it in 1974. Thanks for the help on the correct color and STAR size for the hood. I didn't drive one all the time when I was in the Army, as a M. I. Field Agent I drove a Civ Vehicle. So I didn't know much about what went where.
Thanks again for the help. I will send Pictures when everything is done so you can tell me what I got wrong.
