    Perhaps the Emerald Coast Cruizin (11/7 - 11/9) would be an opportunity to "hook up" with Dave and his crew.

    • Ed, that looks great! I had not checked on progress for quite a while apparently. Nice job!

            Thanks.
            A small update........I think I have finally got the TV adjustment where I like it. Shifts a few mph quicker than specs, but nice and smooth. Reinstalled the door glass, wired, and felt channels all in. It's looking like a complete car. I'll try for a couple of photos soon.
            Greg was such a cheerleader for this car........every time I look at it I think of him. But you've all offered tons of encouragement, and I'm eternally grateful. Thanks, guys.

            • Looks pretty good, but I think they would have been better without the stainless trim. Too late!

              • I like the trim. I think each car needs a little (emphasis on "little") bling. For sure you can have too much but what you have sets the paint off nicely.

                  • My interior guy has a medical condition and can't finish the car. It's scheduled for an upholstery shop on March 1.
                    More to come.

                        Bummer in more ways than one. Of course you want the car done but some things become even more important. Best of luck to all involved.
