To me, there is nothing more "German", and absolutely nothing classier looking than a grey car with darker blue interior. It just screams class and sophistication.
Your door gaps look like they were cut in with a rotozip,...really nice work.

The excitement of the stages you're in now builds, and builds. It's the satisfying conclusion of all the slog work before it. When you finally get to putting on the emblems, trim, and all the other stuff you dry fit a zillion times,...man,...there's no comparison to that feeling when it goes on for the final time.

Really beautiful car you have there. Drive it with pride.

Wow John, really nice work! The car is stunning. Glad to see all the original trim refurbished and reused. And glad to see the new windshield fit well on this cabriolet. I know others have had issues fitting these windscreens.

And thanks for the snap of the Reutter badge. ;-)

.
356 now getting an interior facelift at Auto Weave Upholstery Shop. New carpet, Seat covers and convertible top. The carpet was new old stock. The wood front bow of the convertible top had shrunk and no longer clamped down to the top of the windshield. Should never have left the top down for 50 years.
