Trials of restoration
#1

Well our body man has been working on lining up everything. Our car (71) had 73 fenders had been in a front ender poorly beat out parts with a wrong front clip. We bought dynacorn fenders, rad support, inner fender aprons and a front valence. The valence was miss stamped really obvious when checked closely. so another, not the same problems (we looked closely) wasn't perfect but seemed ok to us and body man. Now we're taking the valence that was on the car in because something still isn't right. Our body guy is old school and quite picky so we'll get a good product but OMG these parts.

Those of you that do this repeatedly have my respect, such a job to get something thats close. Our next special car will start with a year 20__. We still know we'll end up with a special car but what a challenge.Huh

Reproduction parts, at least most of them, are like remakes of great old movies. You recognize the basic story line but it is never quite the same and not as good. Hang in there, it will be worth it when you finally declare the car finished. Chuck

I have to deal with this daily as I restore cars for a living. Glad to hear the body guy is picky cause that equals a quality job. Hang in there, the battle will be worth winning in the end
