These lenses were on upside down also. But if you notice, the light housings are upside down also, see the bulb comes down from the top...

The license plate light was fried...

It had a case of saggy light housing...

The mounting support for the tail lights is a piece of plywood fiberglass resin into place. The passenger side was pulled away from the body allowing the assembly to easily push in and start to fall. I think this was caused by the painters removing the fmc emblems? When they drilled out the original rivots they may have pushed the mount off the fiberglass. idk

So I drilled all the way through the piece of plywood and added a long stainless bolt. I was able to suck the plywood mount back up tight to the body holding the light in place again.

Here's the finished product

This is the broken rear most hanger mount for the huge original muffler

Took a grinder to it...Both those ground wires need to be relocated.

This is an old smashed rubber isolator type thing to help keep it moving side to side for the muffler..

The muffler now is tight. It's all really old, and probably will fail somewhere in the next few years, but if you heard the sound of this exhaust, you wouldn't want to change it...

One MAJOR difference between an early/late coach is the instrument cluster design. This early style is a pain to work with due to it's huge one piece design. The later models come in three sections, each easily removable.
