Dave in Connecticut : son and I undertaking project together ,,having to farm out most of the technical work and body work to get car on road ,,as we are not auto body shop pros ,, had 80% of the body work done by a friend over the last 2 years working sporadically a few nights a week when he could in my garage,,we stripped the body and interior before he started and will put in all together when painted ,, have a 57 292rebuilt motor ready to drop in when we get that far,, still much needed work to be done ...have painless wiring kit for 12 volt upgrade,,picked up a dealer see thru hood ,,need to locate the aluminum trim that holds plexyglass in place { if anyone has any info on locating trim please send me a PM .thanks } at the ford Carlisle show in Pa. past summer we found what I consider great finds on the stainless and few other goodies that will be needed at the end of the build ,,,was a good trip as we had to pick up front and rear bumpers ordered from bumper boys and turn in the cores ,,

Good to have you on the forum Dave.

Send me your email address and I'll email you a back issue of the newsletter that lists out our technical advisors.

One of them will most likely be able to point you in the right direction.
