    It's looking real good, the green is looking better and better as more things get bolted on.

    Amazing how much I have learned, even when paying people to do stuff I should have done myself. The difference in the outcome is that the final result is more professional had only has to be done once. So while I have had help with the wiring, the body prep, the painting, and other areas, I have still put a lot of work into the drivetrain, engine, tuning, and a variety of other small things that go into making it complete. The guys at 121 Rod & Restoration with many years of experience were able to really put the car together the way Factory Five Designed it. I am very pleased with the way it is turning out. Today as we finalize the last few details the front and rear glass is in, the roof is sitting on but not bolted down or sealed with weather stripping yet. The electric window harness will be in shortly and soon we will be off to the upholstery shop. Here is some of the progress today.

    Final alignment of the hood and the engine side skirt mounts that allow me to use them or not without having to remove the headlight.

    The door latches were particularly critical. I had pulls attached to the bear claw latches. The tended to bind and were very difficult to trim. We've now put in a cable drawn pull with an exterior door handle. The doors are not adjusted completely and the top not bolted down but the latching and handle mechanisms work very smoothly not.

    I really like the ability to switch back and forth from roadster to coupe.

    Finally got to clean up the engine compartment, had to go from a 3 inch to a 2 inch air filter element. Finally we've installed door opener buttons to allow the use of interior lights

    Thanks, to be honest the master builders at 121 Rod & Restoration are carrying the ball across the goal line. I've tried to do my part

    Getting down to the end of this. Today the guys got the nose cone aligned, worked on the wiper installation, designed and implemented a bracing system for the headlight and the split engine compartment skirt, and mounted the main parts of the engine compartment skirts. I got to sit in the car for the first time with the roof on it and I was pleased with the effect.
