The Seafoam makes me want to put the 10 spokes on Jackie's car instead of mine!

I love that you build your cars for a purpose, and then use them. The modifications are always just to make them cleaner or more utilitarian. Never to be flashy. Keep up the quality work, ken.

The vinyl shadow box sill is missing on the passenger side.
A sure sign of collision damage.
The dreaded oxidized rattle can is present.

Rear drivers side 1/4 window removal.
Seal is pried back,and propped up.
Feet push the glass out to a helper.
Once the bottom is out the window is pulled down and back to keep the seal and the window together.

Great progression of cool cars! You've had some nice cars and the latest one is really clean.

The Sopwith is safely in the garage.

Seafoam got away from me engine and body-wise.
RIP

A stripe eraser or toffee wheel.
It's kind of like a big round pencil eraser,but non abrasive.

Like parts are bagged up screws,and bolts are put back in the fixtures whenever possible to save time later figuring it out.

Someone laid in the car and pushed out the bottom with their feet? Just so I have that straight...

Feets are stronger.
72+ you have that seat belt bar to grab for leverage.
You can push it out about an inch,and go get it,but a helper is nice.

Window track pivot clips,and nylon washers.
The lip of the clip is lifted,and the square end is pushed off the stud inside the door.
You will not really be able to see them inside the door so it is helpful to know how they work.
