Charles,
It seems something is not correct with the link.

X2, didn't work for me.

Why not post your pics up in here? That way we don't have to link out to another site? & it not work correctly.

Just a thought...

Link works just fine? I just tried it!

Here's a few others taken some time ago.

I know I can place these photos, but the URL thing allows me to save my photos for when or if I sell the Convertible "D". All I have to do then, is give the buyer the link. What if he's not a Member? Some collectors are not?

I don't see Jerry Seinfeld's name, and he'd be a good candidate for this particular Convertible "D". Is Jerry a member? Would he be treated differently if he was? Possibly, but one would hope not.

Jerry, E me about my Convertible "D" and I promise to treat you terribly.

Charles, those door gaps are outstanding! You used lead, correct?

Bill,

Interesting observation, and yes, there is some lead there.

I replaced the lead that was removed.

You must remember, I started with a car that had all original body parts. This makes alignment much easier.

I also have 40 years of restoration experience under my belt.

This helps also. :)

Thanks for the observation and compliment.

Not the best photos though?

Charles

Just got my interior in boxes. Just a few photos taken today. The photos aren't that great, the color is off.

I'll take a few more of the seat underside and the door panels.

Possibly the color will be better? Photography isn't my best feature. :)
