    Fabulous Tom. And while 6 years seems long, well, it's less than mine took, so bonus points to you. Looks great.

    Congrats Tom! It looks fantastic. I restored my 69 E for roughly the same time Tom did his build. I cant count the number of good quality parts I bought from Tom and all his help for my build, so to see yours finished is so great. Cheers on a fantastic build and for being a great guy! Steve

    I really do appreciate all the positive comments on this project. The weather here in CT has been too nasty to attempt a first drive so I have been doing some finishing work. I installed the air box and the associated plumbing, the steering wheel and horn pad, the drivers front seat and the front seat belts. Next I will be doing the 4 wheel alignment to set front & rear toe and camber. Here are some more photos.
