Just went through all 14 pages again - kind of like binge watching on Netflix - great job and the new owner got a wonderful car. I did the same to my SC Cab but it took me 7 years - from a clapped out beater to a car I'm pretty proud of! Maybe not quite to this level of perfection, but I can appreciate all the work that goes into doing a car to this level.
There's a lot of inspiration in this thread for you guys who have a project languishing in the garage - just do it!
Doesn't hurt to have Larry M looking over your shoulder either 8)

Thanks for the kind words, Greg, we had a lot of fun with the process and learned an incredible amount from a master. Interesting and challenging to be an apprentice again, and we did a lot of things two or three times because we thought it could look better, or we didn't like the shade of the paint. It was an eye-opener, with literally nothing bolted to it, and it certainly achieved our wives goals....
We actually had a lot more pictures and thought about doing a T5 version of Neal's book...

Jim - I think a lot of people would like to see a well documented restoration of an original car.
