After getting all the seals and window gutters replaced nothing closes or aligns properly now.  Geez that was a surprise!!!  I found out that a friend of mine used to work for a body shop and his job was alignments of body  parts.  I was thinking that it would take him hour or maybe even days to do all those detailed little adjustments.  In actuality it only took him a couple hour to get everything aligned better than new.

photos to come...

This is the story behind how I found stripped, rebuilt, tested and drove my first Classic Car.  Some of it might be interesting while other parts just plain boring.  Sorry but that goes with the territory of building and owning a classic car.  A lot of hurry up and wait...
The first stage, mechanical, took exactly a year to the week to get from towing in an empty shell to driving it out onto the road with brakes working.
The second stage on the project took a lot less time.  It only took 4 weeks to get the bodywork and paint completed.  Of course it took me several weeks of hunting to find and get all the bits and pieces together before I booked the time at Diego's shop (Affordable Collision Center).  He promised me a 4 week time span... I made him sign a contract to that effect with a penalty of $100 per day over the 30 day period.
