I don't know much about restoring vehicles, but how and where will you get replacement glass for the door?

Looks amazing though, even without the best lighting!

Either I have to find one, or have one custom made. I could do Plexiglas/Lexan too, but I havent gotten to that point yet. Glass isn't on my "to do soon" list yet

I have another question, which I know will sound noobish, but I've never done anything like this so I have to ask. I know the red markings on the body are for body work, but do they mean anything besides that? I see X, L, dash, dot, and circle shapes. Do they have a meaning as to what needs to be done, or is it just random?

Theres nothing technical about them, but I did mark locations that need bondo work. Lots of dents/divits and such. I've never really done bodywork, but I do a lot of business with them so I've seen what they do, figured I needed to mark the locations so I can work on them later.

YEAHHH!!! This is looking very nice! The fitment of the wheels look nice. Offset is perfect for this car.

Kosta;

How much more body work (sans reattaching stuff) is left? You've fixed the rust and rolled the fenders, what's left? Are all the Sharpie marks things that didn't have the capital for at the shop.

Keep up the good work man, you've put alot of heart and soul into are car that most people don't even know exists... And if this doesn't make Top Scoob when it's done I will personally contract Captain Marko Ramius and the Red October to bomb every persons house who didn't vote. Okay maybe that's a little extreme... I guess a shaken finger will do.

The car is basically one piece now, but those marked locations are for the spots that I need to apply filler or do some other work to straighten it out.

The hood, I still don't know what i'm going to do with... Its got issues that i'm not sure how to resolve.

Are you referring to body work, or clearance issues stemming from the engine?

Didn't someone suggest a carbon fiber hood a few dozen pages back?

The body work. There are no clearance issues, just lots of wavey spots...
