Some people really want to learn and these types of things keep them from posting or asking the questions.

I have attached a photo of what a typical fuse panel looks like in our restorations. Anal? HELL YES! but that is what our customers ares paying for. If you only want to spend $60k on a frame off restoration then don't worry about the fuses. If you want the best of the best then detail it to the hilt. Other people are so closed minded they do not realize the amount of time and effort or research that goes into restoring these cars. Again, this is what sets them apart and if that is not your bag, great.

I have attached a photo of a cheat sheet I made up years ago from a vendor as well as a sample photo of our restored fuse panels for those that can use the information and appreciate the detail. Hope this helps.

WOW that picture looks like a brand new car Rick (but then I know that's what you do)

I didn't know what it was going to cost Lou but my return address is on it.
