    Very nice indeed. Did someone come up with a stove pipe for you?

    Random question, but I think of it every time I see this thread. What breakdown of options did you use to determine it is 1 of 83?

    That is why I was confused, my book from Mike T. shows 80? 69 stage 1 production3.jpg

    Is that for GS 350 cars as well Geo?

    Every cad plated tail light screw I had were from Skylarks or Special Deluxe's. Every black (I assume it's black phos plated or mag plated) I have were from GS 400's... I've never owned a GS 350, however, I feel it should be SF black...

    Good Morning, below will be a couple more photos. On Tuesday I received the seats from the upholster shop, the hood is very close from being completed and installed, and yesterday I finished up on a couple more of engine compartment items.

    Something to think about: Dave Johnson was selling the correct "shiny" shifter knobs with jam nuts for our cars. I can reach out and see if he has any left, if you're so inclined.

    Amazing work, by the way!
