    They are non-functional, Laszlo. I like the look, but don’t need them with the a/c and didn’t want the handles sticking out of the door panels. Also, I got my first ‘leak check’ coming back from the interior shop on the roll back. In dumped a couple times in the hour it took to get back, and the windwings, windows, doors and trunk were all dry on the inside. Good news!

    Another item, you can’t see it in the picture, but the door panel near the front has some perforations with a tweeter mounted under the door panel to the door. This simplified the door panel, but let’s the tunes come through!

    Thanks Lee, and I donít know about you, but we are always looking for ways to gain back usable floor space. Putting up new buildings gets expensive...

    Same here. I wanted to retain the vent windows, but also wanted them functional (not sure why ). Never thought about leaving them non-functional so I installed electric motors from a 60's Caddy using the tri5 convertible vent frames without the latches. I'll probably put switches on the dash valence for them.

    I really like the design of your door panels and the rest of the interior. And the workmanship looks outstanding. I couldn't find a good place for them so I mounted my tweeters in the headliner at the top corner of the windshield. Hope they work okay there. Looks like you're using Clayton interior door release handles similar to mine.

    Drive the heck out of that 56 and enjoy it.
    It's a sweet ride.

    Thanks WC, BamaNomad and I took it to be aligned and registered today. Motor pulls strong and does handle well. Otherwise, still working off items before we take off for Trifives mats.

    Never thought about tweeters in the headliner, but sounds like a good place for them...

    Here's how it looks in the sun sitting in the empty part of a large mall parking lot... (I had to 'guard it' while Richard got his registration... )

    Note: While sitting there, two persons pulled up to 'look', including the wife of one of our members here... she was taking photos to send to him!).. The car did get some attention wherever we went...

    Richard,
    Saw your car in person at the nationals on Friday. Beautiful car, looks even better in person than it does in the pictures.

    Thanks Brian, sorry I didn’t get a chance to meet you at the show. There were many very nice vehicles, more than I could digest. Dick
