...And once it's spatter painted, it'll be like it never happened. :) Lots easier than trying to patch the 'Unobtainium' that the FC dashes are made from. Not sure why so many decided that an in-dash radio was required equipment back then. Are you planning to use the same stuff as before on the interior?

There is always a radio hole to patch. The jetsreak dashes are painted so this will be skimmed with filler.

Hey Chip,
My plan is to restore and use that Tee Nee for the Jetstreak.

Rick my tailight sockets are there just thought new ones would be nice. Plenty of time there. And by the way, probably a shade of blue with the white hull. Still looking.

Turns out that I was wrong about the sockets. The open end of the clip faces up for the glow pole, but down for the tail lights. I have a part number for the tail light ones but haven't found them yet. The OEM was sold years ago, and the current company seems to have discontinued them. I'm on it though. There has to be some NOS out there somewhere.

Let me know on the pole height. I've got a short 18" one made up. I think the Jetstreak types were much taller, maybe 30-36".

Good luck with the Resto John. Just throwing this out there... I did come home from AH with a "Mark 58A and plan to stat a complete documented YouTube restoration on it now. I could restore this motor for you? This would be a feather craft family deal :) send me a PM if interested.

Hey Rick,
Definately need 3 of the sockets and the glow pole. You had made me an extra set of lenses last time around. I think I still have a logo left that Trey (Rushwal) made for me last time as well.I believe he made me 2.
The more parts I start to accumulate the more I get pumped to work on this thing.
Thanks.
John
