I've been out of the country for a spell, just got back and picked the car up today from the detail shop. Re-assembly has begun, got the front markers re-installed and engine compartment buttoned up. Should get the rest done this weekend

Restoration journey complete! Car is now back to as Norwood final assembled her on 9/26/69. The car has not looked like this since around May of 1970. There are way too many people to thank, you know who you are. I couldn't, and wouldn't have wanted to do it without your help!
