    Thanks that's a good idea...Now how do I get both handles in the correct spots on the doors? A template of some sort?

    Best way to attach the door handles?
    Doing a '55 Chevy there is no exact "dimple" to show where the outer handle mounts. Also what is the best way (without making a gluey mess) of attaching it?
    Scratching my head here

    Very sad to hear...Cancer does suck and it's a real shame that his energy had to go into fighting insurance companies instead of just trying to heal.
    My condolences to his family and friends

    I see it's an old thread but has anyone finished one of these Mustangs recently? It seems as if they threw the tooling together and nothing fits quite right.

    55 Chevy side trim...Best way to put on
    Doing a '55 Bel Air..The chrome strips that run from the door to the bumper is making me nervous ..How would you glue that on and not get glue all over the paint..Iwas thinking of using blue tape to protect it but I backed off that idea for now

    What ever you do don't put the cap in a vise and twist the glass with your hand.....
    I did that when I was 11 and still have the scar between my thumb and index finger (6 stitches and a very upset mom)

    I just bought a 200C with a V-6. It's a quick car. I did like the S but the wife liked the C

    New stuff can go also pretty quick. Just got my wife a 2015 Chrysler 200C (V6) . From roadtest info it is the equal of a '68 Camaro in 0-60 and 1/4 mile performance and it's basically a family car.

    Raw water cooled is easiest. Otherwise you have to have a way to vent a lot of air out of the engine compartment.
    BTW a really cool build.
