Did a dry fit of the passenger side today. Nice to see the actual shape of the car for the first time.

Rounded up some headlights and bumper brackets. This car would have had painted headlight buckets originally, so I may end up painting them. I still need to find some old mounting hardware to replace the temporary shiny stuff. Would love to find an original commercial radiator cap out there somewhere.

I love the look of the stainless an awful lot, as well. Besides, I need something to match those pricey old bumper bolts. I can always keep an eye out for another pair of painted lights.
