Good eyes, Steve! Actually the whole door is hanging down.....it was okay, but then the upholstery guy put the top on it. He puts on a nice tight top, but believe it or not, sometimes it can screw up the door adjustments!

On this car and some others I've had to put the car on jackstand kinda "teeter totter" style to stretch the top so the doors shut again.

It was about a 6 month job, but the owner is a local guy so I let him help out a lot. It would have taken me about a year if I had to do I everything.

More than the car's worth!

But if I didn't take his money someone else would....at least he got a decent job.

And Greg you do nice work. All you guys have to live so far away. I'd love to come over and help, or just get in your way.

I love seeing "before and after" pics on restored cars. That is very nice!
