tried cleaning/oiling the drivers side door latch/solenoid and any moving parts in the drivers door. i think the latch might be working a bit better but pretty sure i am going to have to pull it and give it a proper cleaning to fix the issue since it looks like the solenoid is working as it should when i am having issues. also cleaned out any tools, gassed it up and put it into storage for the winter. we will see if i feel like doing much more to it over the winter.

Garage
Default Resto-rod

I just finished resto-rodding my 59 a few days before the 60th anniversary get together in Arlington.
I installed a 2013 5.3L/6L80 driveline, 4wdb (hydoboost), 17inch American torq thrust, vintage air, interior, paint, gps/backup camera.
It was a three year project, frame off.

I painted the brackets that hold the center armrests for the 60/40 bench seat. My wife made the covers that are on it in 2005. We are recovering them to match the rest of interior.
