    Richard,
    Those are some major misalignments you have been faced with - great job on your repairs - looking great!

    Bill,
    Sorry to hear your wife is back in the hospital - prayers for her recovery.
    Regards, Doug

    Update

    Thanks for the comments, guys. Bill, hope your wife's hospital stay is short.

    I think I'm beginning to learn working on this fiberglass stuff, lol. I still prefer steel bodies, though. Worked today to finish the dash, just needs a little filler. Now its level, and on to other things.

    Took a little time out and installed the grill surround and headlight rims. These fit reasonably well, but do need some work. There are some gaps between the headlight rims and the body that need to be filled. There are also some fit problems with the grill surround. The center pieces don't fit the body squarely, and the side pieces don't fit the body contour well. After a little work, these will fit well.

    The deck lid really has a factory fit problem, the passenger corner is completely above the adjacent body contour. I'm still thinking about how to fix this one...

    They are still out there Mark! Although, they seem to be getting more expensive by the week...

    Thanks, Richard. I don't mean to hijack your beautiful work post here, but another surgery tomorrow. Prayers are welcome.

    My experience is limited too, Mark. As I said, I think I’m getting the hang of it though. Gary started me off and I just keep going. Having said that, I’m still thinking about how to fix the deck lid without creating more problems. I may need to get Gary’s help again!

    My best wishes, Bill, on the surgery and results, also.

    I was well enough this afternoon to work on my tractor, change over to mulching blades, and got started on my lawn (haying mostly being the first time of the season!).. I'll see you Saturday morning. Hopefully I can help a little...
