    Can't wait to see the paint then finished there after. And happy you kept the 51 rear window, more difficult to achieve the correct look but well worth it when done properly. Nailed it !

    Im down to assembling the car and as I go through the box's of parts I am finding every part I need ,
    We all have bought cars and the seller says all the parts are there and in the excitement of purchasing the car we know that's no really true but we tell our self it is . But who ever took this car apart went out of their way to put all the small parts into plastic bags and label !!! Thank God !!!!
     
  24. That sure is a big help. I recently sold a car I took apart like that. I worried and worried that I had gathered up all the pieces and labelled bags. So far he hasn't called me back that I left anything out. LOL

    Can't wait to see it all together. It's going to be one nice looking car.

    Wow, does that look nice... Is that a Monarch grille you have? I've looked for one of those for two years, never seen one for sale. Pretty cool that you have one.
