    Super cool car! Maybe a light tan interior would look good? 63-Porsche_356B_Cabrio-DV-16-GCA_01-800<noscript63-Porsche_356B_Cabrio-DV-16-GCA_01-800</noscript>

    Willy…That’s one of the choices on our list of colors.

    I’m hesitant to ask John or Franz to do a website poll on the group of colors cause we could ended up with 2-3 pages of  talk about why or why not to have a certain color.   But I’m open to everyone’s suggestions.

    Web site Poll…… 😎  😎  Thats funny… and was done soo much about 10 years ago…. 😎  Not so much anymore… 😎

    I didn’t accomplish much yesterday.. I got the body transferred over to one of my body dollies… and Gave it a bath!!!  It was dirty dirty!!!  and needs me to do some rubbing on it.. it has tape residue and spots that are marred from a cover or parts storing or something…    More progress today!!! 😎

    This morning I was using this adhesive remover to get all the tape residue off the car… it was randomly everywhere. 😎

    Then onto tapping holes for assembly prep..

    Looks like we are missing a running board hole… 😎  We are missing a trim hole on the pass front 1/4 also… 😎 8-(  Them Jack points look funny also?? maybe????

    Lots of good parts….. Lots of missing parts also… 😎  Franz noticed your taillights are american spec 55.. You need hearts… I haven’t seen lenses or bulb holders for these yet either… 😎  Wrong headlight switch.. this is  59 style…  I have not seen a wiper switch also…. But you have an NOS ignition switch!!!!!! 😎  😎  😎  😎  No chrome for middle of dash, also no speedo trim ring either….  Maybe there are more trinkets hiding in a box????

    The speedo is SOOOOO nice and original…. Do you want it sent in and restored by Orange Empire zero’ed out and shit?

    I hope we can keep some steady momentum on this project so it does not turn into a 6 year build….. 😎  😎  😎  😎  😎

    Franz was saying the other day… NO project should take more than 18 months… 😎  😎  😎  Other wise the hourly rate doubles… 😎

    I’d have to agree, add it up before you get started and pad that!!!  Storing projects gets overbearing, they can get chipped, dented, cats and dogs piss on it…

    I stripped this ‘62 Yukon yellow Kab back to original paint and did a ton of blending for a TV programme last year – the hood was originally olive green – you could see the colour underneath in places. I think olive green would suit it well.

    Mary says “Thank You” for given her car a good cleaning.    Just the regular hex head bolts….I don’t know why anyone would want Allen heads.. 🙄

    Please send the speedo out to Orange Empire.  Get me a list and I’ll start tracking stuff down.
