28372 This be a very good reason to consider removing the fins on a '57 golden Hawk during a restoration.
The removal was debated, but as you see, we are very happy to have done it.

Yep. No substitute for taking it all the way if you want to do it right. I once had a low mile California TR6 that was so rust free every nut and bolt underneath just came off like they were put on yesterday. When I stripped the paint I found a long scratch on the rear fender in the original primer that had rust bloom under the paint. It would have only been a matter of time....
