Tomorrow is another day lol
    I edited this to show this morning we got it together, just needed to put in hinges and weld in lower quarters,

    Look's good Lee. That is where I am at right now. My weld strip that the tail panel welded to and the cross member is in bad shape. Got any pics of it. Mine is still on but have metal bent to replace it. Keep up the good work. Russ.

    Looking good. Would you mind posting a picture of the dealer logo?

    Thank you. I would appreciate the picture. I keep a library of these logos/decals for reference. They are a nice touch to finish off an OEM restoration.
