Finally it is out of the body shop!  The doors still need final gapping, and a few other small items remain, but the body is essentially done.  It is now in queue to get into Dirty's Speed Shop.  My task now is to gather parts.   I have the front axle and front and rear wishbones.  All I need is everything else....
Tom,
Is the tape on the posts how much your going to chop it ?

No, just to keep the doors closed during transport.  I don't have the latches yet.

You are gonna need one of these, preferably sans "modified" ::) ;D output shaft. So feel free to ask me if toploaders really are "bulletproof"...  ;D

Update:  Mostly boring stuff, but I've been hunting for odds and ends for the coupe - primarily the trunk hinges as they seem to be made of 'unobtanium', plus a few gennie and 1-800 chassis bits.  It's now in the queue for Rusty's shop; progress will start to happen in January !

Yes.  Drake makes them but they don't have any in stock.
