Why you never throw anything away

#1 Post by Adam Wright » Wed Aug 14, 2019 10:03 am

I always love it when I keep a strange part, no matter how rough, or when I buy a part at a swap meet and everyone laughs. It's times like this when those parts come in handy. We recently got in an early T1 coupe that had been "updated" with teardrop lights. We wanted to take it back to beehives except how do you know where they go? Well, I just happen to have a piece that shows us, exactly where they are supposed to go.
Don't throw anything away, and if you need space, send it to me, I'll archive it.

I always need stories for my Barn Find column in the magazine, if you have a good story to share, please let me know.

Nice template! I've got one of those too, but it's a bit awkward to move around!
Here are the measurements I took from my '55 clip for those who don't have a template.
