    Had a small setback, one of the doors, (of course one that was already sectioned,) Passengers side,) came up missing. had to have been some of the people that "collected" a lot of scrap from the property here, must have decided that that "Old Door" was scrap also and off it went,
    Could not find a two door, door under $900 ( so had to build one out of the two doors on a side from a 4 door car.
    That door is together now so it is back in the frying pan with the project.

    Doug, I know what it takes, lots of very careful work, I applaud you on your work.
    There is a little bit more work on these to go yet.

    Add to what has been done so far, a change to a one piece door glass and suicide hinges. Plus the actuator release and power windows like yours.

    ain't it fun? :D

    I know you have put a lot of time and effort into this car and it's a shame you have to get rid of it. Good luck with selling the car James, someone's going to get a great, one of a kind custom.

    Very ambitious project.
     
  28. Cool. I made a similar decision & don't regret keeping the car. Quite the opposite. You have a load of work in this car, more power to you.
