    That colour looks amazing!! If I weren't going to do mine in sunflower yellow, I'd definitely look at a colour like that!

    After all panels are aligned 1/8 holes are drilled thru the hinge into the body this makes re-assembly to the alignment position possible. As for as reassembly without damage, tape is your friend cover close surfaces and be careful be very careful.

    I'm working on a Brewster Green 73 at my shop now, RS conversion, some minor fender repairs and replacing the cowl induction hood with a stock flat hood

    Beautiful job. The bodywork is impeccable from what I can see and the clear went on smooth just like it should. Nice job, nice color. You must be really pleased with the outcome!
