You are getting close. I have never installed a windshield with the dash pad in place. Wonder if it will be removed to install the windshield?
1965 356C There is never enough time to do it right, but always enough time to do it over.

This past weekend I finally clean up the wheels
Part bin is finally getting smaller, maybe total of 15 parts left to clean and install
Bumpers will be last I guess

Hello everyone

Today I took the 356 out for a short drive and notice cold coming in from the middle front part of the top.

After getting home I open the top and notice when they redo the top they made a wood shim and put under the middle hatch on the top part. I remove the middle hatch and remove the wood shim . But now the hatch will not close all the way and I notice the rubber part on the top is not sealing correctly only left and right side is.

I am going to call the person that redid the top and the interior of the car but I was wondering if anyone had same problem

Normally the bows would be separate. Your car looks fantastic by the way!
