    Mike is shipping our seals today priority mail… 😎  He said all but a couple will be in the first box!   Sweet.. I need a few seals.. 😎

    I did get those aluminum strips that go over head in the jamb for the top if the window seal. all sanded, and polished and cleaned up!! ready for unstall.. But I am pretty sure, there is a seal that goes under it also…. 😎   So, on to the next item today…. Maybe I will get the wiper motor cleaned up and ready to install… but I need some wiper grommets… 😎  Probably the same as type 1… I might be able to find some… 😎

    Are the vent trim pieces on the dash something that’s reproduced?

    Justin..... that's Justin in Spanish.

    Late 59 thing….  it would normally had the top of the dash covered also, and those trimmed it out…   Juan decided against covering it… I probably should have filled those holes for the trim….  but it slipped my mind…  I guess, I could go backwards and fill em…. and touch up some paint in them…. I thought I would paint them and install and see how they looked… I like em,

    But honestly… I was hoping it would slip right by without question… 😎  Now the question is what Juan thinks??? 😎  😎

    We had a couple discussion about this.

    I feel you get the sexy early dash look and respect what was OG to the car.

    Juan?

    We will build it if it comes.

    John, could I call you tomorrow morning with some questions on early and late dashes before I decide what to do?
