    So the other day I had decided to pull the side mouldings off, because they were starting to curl, and the piece behind the door didn't match the rest.
    After I got it off and started to get the 3M tape residue off the door, I realized that when the car was painted, the masked the trim and mouldings to paint the car. So now there's a n Oxford white stripe down the center of the door on a white pearl car. LOL .....I guess I'll have to put the moulding back on until I redo the car.




    I've also noticed that the car is only 3" shorter then my 87. But it feels like it's a foot shorter for some reason

    I made the thread sticky where there were just two posts in it. You can't have one of your cars' threads sticky and the other one not! That's just wrong. Besides...we know you're going to tear into this one eventually, and for those that have never seen a convertible it's going to be a really great opportunity to see how it was made.

    You've already attained legendary status here. I just made sure that this thread can carry on that tradition.

    Wow nice project Jerry. I can't wait to see your progress. I'm glad someone like yourself has this car and will fix it right.

    Post some pics after you remove the interior and we'll see what you have, or "don't have" so to speak.
    Will do. I guess I could start a thread with what pics I already took. The dash wont be hard (jinx) to get out so I can remove those vents.

    @ Chuck W.

    Did you get that turbo 4 put back together? I bought some motor mounts from you about 3 years ago ( I live on the west side) and I saw it but it was still on a stand.
