    Some progress to report.  I'll just say that my cars have been happy with COVID...  I took a break from body work, and put the engine bay back together, and hope to have the Nailhead running again soon, and the car running around the parking lot for a bit of exercise.  It's been very gratifying to put painted and zinc'd parts back together again.  You might note a lot of AC stuff going on in here...

    Thanks!  Just so happened to have things between all apart and all back together - and for the moment clean - for some good pics of the topic.

    The vacuum line goes behind the dash and radio to the washer buttom.  From the washer button to the washer pump on the vent cover, not installed here yet, passing here.  The washer fluid from the washer jar passes back inside through the same grommet and goes to a split and to the squirt nozzles at the wiper arm bases.

    Then from the valve lower tube, down the firewall and over the transmission.
