Nothing wrong with slow. When I was redoing my car I often spent hours searching through old posts to figure out the correct way to do something. Then would spend an hour or two on the doing.

Need help now

Looks like the painter lost some parts of the car , both of door latch at door itself are gone , I know I never took them off that means I have no idea of what I need

How hard is to find these part for both doors and how many parts I am missing?

I would ask to search his garage/ paint prep area myself. Worst case scenario I would try Gary at Parts Obsolete and Adam at unobtainium inc and a wanted ad. GR & sons has them on Thesamba.com also but expensive. I have heard he can sometimes be open to offers.

Found them at his shop ; )

Found a place around Manassas VA to install the interior, just around the corner from me. They have done 356 before , they will take the car in mid Sept, I did take the kit from international with me and the old gentlemen love the quality of the kit he knew about the kit

Vacation and beach weekend have been replaced by working on the 356 no progress for now

Your missing door latches are not dropped inside of the doors, are they?

He said he found them at his painter's shop. See entry #66 above.

Antonio,

As Doug has said there is nothing wrong with slow, it looks to be coming together nicely.

I have been working on my C for over 4 years, nice to see you keeping the chrome the way it is.
