I believe I've said this elsewhere, but I'm absolutely in awe of your skills Dean. Truly spectacular. I'm quite certain this car is going to be fantastic when done, certainly truly better than new!

Amazing work.

The good thing about retirement is you can spend four extra days making rain gutters... I finally got both sides to a point that I can install and remove them without damaging paint. And as a bonus I temporally installed the emergency brake. Who knows when you might need to stop.
