As long as you're changing the master cylinder, flush the Dot 3 or 4 out of the lines go with Dot 5 as it won't destroy your paint if you ever get a leak.

That color looks great!

Looking good. Remember it only took a few hours to assemble originally. (Plus special tools, jigs and quite a few assembly line workers.)

When you've just finished installing an A/C compressor this is not the optimal outcome when you go to hook up the line. Fortunately, I had a spare compressor.

I ran and hooked up the A/C lines and the heater hoses. There's no decent heater hose diagram in the FSM for Charger/Coronet/Satellite with big block and A/C. So, I don't know if it's right or not. I also reinstalled the brake hardlines/distribution valve/master cylinder. I was working alone so had to improvise to hold up the MC while I went under the dash to install the washers and nuts.

Check the ground wire on the horn switch. Sometimes can be troublesome.

The horn button wasn't seating all the way into the wheel and the retaining ring was holding the button down. Just needed to walk away for a bit and come back with a fresh outlook. It was a gut check connecting the battery. But, I didn't let the smoke out.
