  • Body / Glass: bullet nose alignment

    A '51 coupe for sale has a nose that is a little off center in its relationship with the hood. The hood fits fine in its relationship with the fenders. Is the nose adjustable? The seller maintains, after looking at photos of other cars, that they are all like that.

    The seller is wrong, as so many are. BS is cheap and actual knowledge is expensive.

    There is some play in the mounting holes for the bullet. It is possible that it was slid to one side before the bolts were tightened.

    Look carefully for any collision damage. Look down from the top to see if the bullet is pointed/tilted to one side.

        Please send me an email from your email application. I cannot figure out why the PM system is so cumbersome for me and an email sent from the PM system will not reach my inbox.
