A 147 changes is not a "few" my friend ! Look forward to watching this one come alive. I would say "good luck " but with your talent you don't need any luck.

I've seen that wild looking '100 around the area at a few shows for the last ~6 years ; its owner / builder lives around here somewhere .

If not for the "951" area code , it'd look like it's straight out of the early 60's ! Wish that I could convince him to change it to "714" and add a *ficticious* number (e.g. , OLeander-23593 [Hemet-area prefix] , or something similar ) , simply to complete the period-correct look , then put the *real* contact info on a business card B) .

Looking forward to watching your progress !

John, we're all prepared to be blown away with your anticipated work on this project.... and I'm sure that YOU will have absolutely NO PROBLEM with the non-existent inner door panels on this kit. Do you think it will take you more than a couple of weeks to finish this one up...??? We'll all be watching this one for sure.

Whoa! That is one BUSY design.

But I'm sure you'll get a "handle" on it ... even the grille!
