      Something original, or at least its new to me.. screw you if ya don't like it.. or if its not euro...
      Was a nice day today, kicked the kids out an hour early, was the 1st day of class, told-em to buy the book they needed downtown or order it online.....
      Washed/Wax in the shop space..
      $14 E-bay, 1956 Hood Script.. Respect your Elders....

      Ground off rear mounting pins, added 3M VHB Gray Tape.. X-acto...

      My Ivory Tower, where I postulate.... And only teach out of a book...

      Finally got rid of the god-damn blue pinstripes that the PO had put on, gotta work on the wonderful wheel-arch moulding next.. Got a cleaner bumper, and plan to level out the hood and lights this weekend if the weather holds out..

      Yes, I debadged a week ago - only to rebadge...

      Down, but not out...


      I really, really enjoy my car...
      Hope you liked looking at it too, have a good weekend!

      I teach at a local community college in the Philly area. We have a generic auto tech program (ie, not based on one brand of car...).
      Yea, the hood.. phew... tell me about it.
      Its not a star, its a sticker, done *by* a star.

      Looks good, but that hood needs to be realigned real bad.

      I think its alot harder to pull off the white paint and have evereyithing look lined up. Props to the owner for almost having a car with excellent proportion. [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
