    It really looks like you are doing a nice job on the car. I can't see your body tag. I hope that you remembered to put it on the car before you painted the cowl.

        Looks great! One thing- the climatizer lower panel,with a 4" round metal tube about 18" going forward[climatizer core hsng]won't go in after the gullwing x-member is installed.-[if it's one piece like mine]
        I had to separate the 2 halves of mine to install it.Rusty any way,I'm gonna paint it and join it back together on the car with a rubber sleeve and hose clamps.

                I think that climatizer thing is actually held together with a single sheetmetal screw (or is it two?) I had to replace the tube on my car as it was rusted through.

                    The climatizer unit in my 55 President seems to be spot welded. It's fast and there are no screws in it.

                    BTW in the sedan, I was able to remove it without disturbing any frame members.

                        That's REALLY a beautiful job Domenic![^]

                        You know when you start trying that hard to go all original, you pretty much have to go all the way, at least as far as you can, to make it correct. The thing that will really stand out as wrong with everything so correct, are those rear shocks. They should be BLACK, I don't know if the bright baby BLUE is the final coat or not, but it appears so, or you would not have put the body on.

                        That engine looks very correct, even down to the oil filter. Real nice![^]

                            Studerich, You are correct, When I painted those shocks I was not aware of the correctness of the colors. I thought it would make for great contrast matching the color to the body color. How much do you think those blue shocks will hurt me in judging? Also do you know the correct color for the shocks.

                            Thanks
