|37ford4dr||when I lived in NJ you needed four photos of the car to get antique plates also. that top fits the car so perfectly. they did really nice work.|

Yes sir! We are eager with anticipation!
Thank you very much!
We still need to register the car with the state of Illinois before we can get it on the road legally. Additionally we still have to make sure our paperwork is in order to get insurance as well. New kit cars usually have to go through plenty of red tape before they can hit the road.
Presently, the state of Illinois requires four photos of the vehicle all four sides.
The insurance company requires 6 photos (the above four photos) and photos of the inside of the trunk and inside the passenger compartment.

Pictures from yesterday.
The convertible top was fabricated at this shop.
Pretty soon we'll be registered with the state.
Thank you for the kind words!
Ps. If there are any questions I can answer about this build, please ask away!

In this photo the paint is dull as it's still required to be buffed out.
However, when they rolled the car outside the shop and into the driveway, they were buffing out the paint in the sunlight & attempted to walk back into the shop. As a result, they were blinded by the change in sunlight to dark workshop!
End result they had to wait a few minutes prior to going back into shop.

That's Miguel M., the owner of the new shop where we're at. In this photo, he's measuring/installing/drilling the new chromed out running board rails. You might remember him earlier in the thread quite a few pages ago. His attention to the most granular of details is why we went with him when he decided to open his own shop.
ps. The Good Guys always win. They just don't talk about it.

Now I don't know if all the cars under the banner that these cars were built. I have a CMC builder or maker on mine. The front k-member is too wide and you can not get the fender down over the tire unless you
1. have a big wheel offset, run into problems turn steering wheel lock to lock.
2. widen front fenders 2", which I did, and added shorter control arms by 5/8".
I don't know if all the cars were like that or not, But I have seen veryfew were the fender went down over the wheel, I think if they did they have done some work to get them down in front, which I did to make it look good. JMO.
