    Ugh... The things you deal with restoring old cars.

    1. At some point along the line someone replaced the OE window motor with a '75 and under model
    2. WHO THE HELL THOUGHT REMANNING MEANT CUT OFF THE DAMN MOUNTING POSTS???

    Pulled the back window out. I brought in the pros for this one. Good thing too. It fought coming out. Just gotta clean it all up, tint the window, then get it back in again.

    Tint on the rear window and driver's window is done! Also got the driver's door fully rebuilt with the new window motor, cleaned up regulator, polished tracks, new rollers, seals, and Painless relayed wiring... Yikes this turned into a huge project!

    Also attempted to paint the front fender. It looks decent but there's a lot of orange peel. Can't expect much from rattle cans I guess. Hopefully a cut and buff will help.
