Well, I spent the week cleaning glass, polishing chrome, putting 2 of the 4 wheel covers on, and the brakes went out again...I think they just need a really good bleed. She's been a blast to drive. She'll be in her first show next Sunday. I don't care how bad the paint is chipped, I'm still showing her off! 

Does anyone have any pointers on how to stiffen up the play in the steering, or is that just an older car thing that I'll have to deal with?

Congrats. . .My apologies for not commenting sooner. . .I have been sick
 
You better check out the front end to be sure everytthing is tight.
 
The first things to go are the lower bushings.  Always a wise idea to do them.  You'll be glad you did.
 
When you say play, do you mean the steering wheel swings a ways before it grabs or it's too easy to turn?  They are real easy to turn.  But if it's loose feeling, check out the front end real good and we'll go from there.
 
Remember, I have one of these

Isn 't there an adjustment nut on the steering box that takes up slack?

Yes. . .But what good is it if the rest is loose?  It's a 59!
 
No sence adjusting if it has a bad Idler arm. .  Right?  That's why I said we'd go from there.

My bad. There is no play, it's just really easy to turn. I didn't know if it was too loose or anything. Not that I'm complaining, I was just wanting to make sure it's normal :D
 
Also, there was a floor A/C in the trunk, but it's from a mark IV...as far as I knew, these had the AC that came through the dash vents, and I'm suspecting that someone had thrown this in rather than fix the old one (There are NO hoses run to the heater core, nothing coming off the AC compressor) Can someone verify this one for me too? Sorry for all the questions. I will be ordering the shop manual on CD in a couple of days.

No problem Rod
 
Just as a note. . .let's start posting your questions in the tech sections.
 
There was a dealer ad on unit that hung under the dash.  But it was a Mark IV with a mopar lable.  An aftermarket was allot less money bought outside the dealership.  Chrysler with it's 100% markup.
