  20. so we finished a final guide coat in black to check the lines and levels. since most trims were hand fabricated and copper and chrome plated in house. we will now start a mock fitting of every part on the car. Make a final listing of missing parts and then finally remove them all out and go for the final paint. we are still debating the final colour and upholstery pattern and color too. lets see where this heads. Have to get her finished by November. a big thank you to everyone whos helping me source parts. i have the original hub cups, but they are missing the center medallions. so those are on the to find list as well. thank you Pilgrim for your kind words. really hope she turns out a stunner, regards, Allan
