    I’ve gotten a few pieces from them that are really nice. I’m not sure how much lowlight stuff they have though. My highlights are from the 70s!

    Get it done! You had the flat dividers welded in before you ever had the replacement parts to fit everything together. Wire harness tube just appears from out of nowhere. You make it look soo easy!
