    Nice. That Mercedes looks good too. What kind of bumpers for you have on there?
    So long and thanks, for all the fish.

    They are morspeed bumpers

    Almost there just need the windows installed and it can go off to the upholstery shop. Windshield is out being polished and anodized. So looking forward to reassembling it.

    What a difference lighting and/or cameras(?) can make? That looks like 2 totally different cars from one set of pictures to the next.

    yeah it's a very strange color that's hard to pin down even in person

    My project for tomorrow. It's going to be so much fun

    I won't be far behind, and I have to fill a spot that looks like it was ground out.

    Had a minor setback with the windshield as the polishers just ground the **** out of the head of the screws holding the bracket on the side pieces and made it impossible to salvage them. Fortunately I found an early frame and they redid it after I made sure to remove everything myself. So this weekend I will tackle the new frame. In the mean time the interior was mostly finished. All the panels and seats are leather and wool carpet. Still need to pull the dash and recover it and replace the vinyl behind it.

    That's looking really nice, very clean. I really like that boot carpet.

    Good luck with the windshield work.
