    Lookin good Tom.

    What's the consensus on over-restored trunks?
    Survey as to whether owners want crappy looking, half-sprayed, glue-everywhere original or pretty like Tom's?
    Warning! If I crap on you itís not on purpose.

    I often buy parts I think I need but find out I already own.

    I will take the restored correct dark grey ....
    Tom this car is excellent congrats on the patience and efforts to make great!!

    I did have a question on the camber and toe-in attachments.
    Can’t remember which one but only one of them has the washer per Parts manual .
    Is this correct ? Also do the bolt heads for attaching radius arms face inward or outward or one each way?

    Cool project

    Frank and Frank..Thanks for your comments on my project.

    Frank T....Regarding your question on the rear spring plate/trailing arm hardware, my reading of the parts diagram and observation of other cars, led me to use the arrangement shown in this photo. As best I know the thick washers and thin nuts are unique to this application. Also the lock washers behind the nuts are the schnoor type.

    Hi Tom , I've obsessed about this and have studied many original cars , the eccentric for the rear toe adjustment does not have a thick flat washer , only a schnor washer . Also the lower bolt at the back of the spring plate should be reversed - nut facing to the outside of the car and the bolts get two thick washers , one at the bolt head , one at the nut .
