Default Slowly but Surely...

Visited 0327 in the shop today. The rear end is all put together (pic 1). Driver's door is assembled and in place (pic 2). Next will be passenger door, fenders, then hood, then front end.
The reason it's taken so long is my friend takes everything apart, cleans, removes rust/reconditions every part, then reassembles. Hardware and metal fasteners get tumbled to clean them. He took the doors completely apart; windows out, all mechanical components. Cleaned inside and out, then painted both sides. Removed all rust and cleaned the parts. Reassembled with new rubber and greased the moving parts. It's like new. A lot of details I'm not sure I would have done myself, but that door in place operates like new. Perfectly aligned, closes solidly, etc.
I'm getting the interior shop down the street all lined up and ready. He says with all materials and components he can knock that out in 2 days. We'll see...

Doing it right like that makes a huge difference in the long run Steve and is worth the effort/dollars now. No hidden problems that can come back to haunt you years later that may be very hard to repair once the car is all put back together. Wow, I can't wait to see the finished product.
