Thanks, guys. Yes sir, same project!. I should be updating here more, and Iíll do it courtesy of a New Year resolution!

Iím wrapping up rewiring a 69 XKE so that means more focus on the 507. More to come!!

Thanks, Marcus. I think the more challenging stuff is to come with trim, door internals, locks, etc. Right, because all of this was easy!

Itís been an incredibly fun project so far. Frustrating, but rewarding. More to come later this month!!!

How did you fix this issue, did you have to redo the front ?

Thanks for pointing that out. I cut the right headlight bucket area out and moved the headlight up to match the left side then welded it back in. Wasnít the cleanest job, but it came out better than I had hoped. Itís way better now since it was off more than I had originally thought after you pointed it out initially. Thanks for the critical eye!!

Iíll post up more pics next week!!

Cheers
Dave
