    I was able to come up with original Ford parts for the rear section, and a repro part for the center. The front and the subrails just got patched where needed.

    It's nice that the lower door post came from this floor, so I could mount them back in the exact location.

    Great save. Did you say that those are Fordor doors? With the chop it's a non issue, but look like 'em to me.

    It's as easy as building a model car. Just break the pieces off the plastic trees, shave the flashing off, and apply a smidgeon of glue.....o_O

    Bad ass build!

    I haven't posted in over three months, but dang, I've still been working pretty hard at it.

    This is what I've gotten done..

    - 98 hand formed louvers in the decklid
    - joined the inner decklid to the outer decklid (a lot of work)
    - install deck lid handle, and latch
    - install deck lid hinge brackets (lots of trial and error)
    - install deck lid hinges to the deck lid
    - remove some of the crown in the left quarter
    - add some crown to the right quarter
    - install drip rails
    - intall deck lid support and make/install new brackets
    - adjust gaps
    - align tailpan
