Re: Convertible Progress Thread
Aaargh. Nasty surprise the other day. I'm waiting for the hinges to come back from Willie so I started to put the doors together. Turns out both driver side windows are scratched beyond repair, the RH quarter window is marginal, and the passenger side seems ok, so I'm looking at replacing at least three of the four windows. Add to that the window felts are hard as rock and crack when you touch them and the quarter window chrome trim piece is pitted and rusty. So far I've got $500 in my Ground Up cart for the window parts and I'm still counting. I'm probably going to end up replacing a bunch of the window hardware too.
A little unexpected. At the moment I'm not really working on the car as every little sub project is missing something critical, so I'm just sitting back waiting for orders to arrive.

As usual, Andy is right
If it doesn't fit, force it. If it breaks, it needed to be replaced anyway.
I have to keep reminding myself this isn't a Z16 convertible, Evening Orchid Camaro, or factory 1966 SS427 and get on with it.
