Ok, starting to see if i can track down some parts to replace the modifications done to the Squire 9.
Looking though the manuals i see the hood was originally held down by four curled bolts with washer and conical springs on the inside.
Read that this set up was always a pain and shook loose over time but i would like originality.
Found a few sites that speak of this and were to buy the curled nuts but as for the spring and conical washer i am a little lost, there is only one and washer on the hood i can remove and use for reference.
As you see in the photos the light bar is homemade angle iron, would like to replace it with the right one for 1963/64, see there is two kinds, the early and late. I am assuming the Squire took the early ? manual does not show the bar or lights.
The M/W decal and holder that mounted to the grill is gone, would assume this to be the hardest part to find but i can wait and watch for this later.
