    On another note, any idea on how to make that glass clear again? Windex does not even begin to touch it.

    I love that feeling too. I had one of those baker racks on wheels and it was full in the beginning. As it emptied made me feel good that the car is almost done.

    rubbing compound on a buffer works pretty Good to remove small imperfections in the glass. Use 4-0000 steel wool first with cleaner to get any grime off before you buff it. Even comet Or Ajax on a scotch pad will do well. Just use it wet so it don’t scratch. I’ve cleaned a lot of glass this way.

    Cool. I will give it a try. The left side needs replaced, but that will be later.....

    I've done the same as Mario and used Comet and 4/0 steel wool to clean glass, but never had any that bad to do. I hope it gets clear, but doubt it can be saved personally.

    When I start a build my storage shed, and shop shelves are both packed with parts. As the end gets closer both seem to regain a lot of space! And I notice my internet deliveries seem to dwindle to nothing too.

    Hi Dave

    hope this move will be more permanent for you so that you can really feel settled. What type of garage/work space do you have? Is there room for the car inside? Good luck with the move.

    Well, made it to St. Louis! The car held up just fine with the new set up in front. Took a pounding but held up with the engine in and all. So, I am counting that as good! The house we rented has a 1 stall garage with an area in the back for all my storage so getting the car in for the winter should not be an issue. Next up is to get the seat brackets made and wire it up.
