Looking great! I like the colors.

I've been at this point several times over the years and I will offer a bit of unsolicited advice based on my experiences.

TAKE YOUR TIME!!!

I know everyone is anxious at this point of a restoration, so just relax and take you time and work methodically through the rest of the job so you aren't taking things apart that you did last week. The more you work and have to re-do, the more you risk scratching something. Just relax and take your time! The hard work is over and every little thing you do now will show up big time! If you get frustrated, just close the door and walk away!!! (Booze helps too! ) A day or two later things always work better.

Keep up the good work and we like pictures!!!

I like the advice, especially the "close the door and walk away" and the "Booze helps to"

GREAT ADVICE! I actually did that yesterday. The bumper was giving me trouble. I just added new pictures to the photobucket. Go check them out. Thanks again for the advice. http://s1288.photobucket.com/user/Go...finally%20home
