A box of super nice early convertible chrome parts arrived here today.😛John JonesModeratorMarch 1, 2021 at 7:13 amPost count: 8119
I think them windshield top mounts for the top may have come in Saturday from West Coast Metric?
Kelly…. We need to spend some time on your car getting the doors dialed in.. the hinge situation is messy and complicated and should have already been dealt with before paint but wasn’t.. and now, we are going to have to tip toe around paint and get this shit dialed in.. Vert hinges and covers and grease zerks is a bigger job than most realize….
Sooo.. We need a big OL chunk of money.. so we can spend some quality and quantity time on your rig please… 😎 😎 😎FranzModeratorMarch 5, 2021 at 9:26 amPost count: 4367

Did Doug ever show back up to finish the top.?FranzModeratorMarch 21, 2021 at 12:27 pmPost count: 4367
Some adjustments and fitting on the top the last couple of days.
Doug made me take a picture of this tag, and said that the top canvas had a 5 year warranty.FranzModeratorMarch 22, 2021 at 9:56 amPost count: 4367
We ran into a problem yesterday. Either the top frame or windshield frame is not original to the car…the top latch mounting holes are wider on the top than the windshield????
Must be crazy early 54 stuff. Not a big deal, we can re-drill the top frame header bow to make them fit.
We also need to look at ordering that really expensive 3 piece chrome strip kit for the top. Doug is ready to nail down seams.👍Lone StarParticipantMarch 23, 2021 at 1:27 pmPost count: 245
I can’t find that chrome strip. Chuck’s doesn’t have them right now. Any suggestions who to call.?FranzModeratorJune 7, 2021 at 3:18 pmPost count: 4367
Chrome strips are still out of stock. I’ve asked WW if they know when. They don’t.
I’m going to get the doors bolted-on and move forward.

Hinge covers and doors are going together today.
Windshield is being cut at our local Glass Doctor. Thanks DOM!
Weatherstrip and trim on order.
Top trim kit is still unavailable.FranzModeratorJuly 7, 2021 at 5:18 pmPost count: 4367
Looks like the hinge covers were not fit to the door prior to paint. I was able to install one.
The other three I had to trim to fit. Prepped for paint tomorrow.
The hens teeth aluminum grease zerks got cleaned and polished.
