Ya looks pretty well sorted. :tu:

Maybe black out the tops of the door frames,try it with black tape to see if you likey before paint. :idea:

Also maybe a roll of sticky back press in cut to fit black trim for the front and rear windshield weatherstripping grooves. :idea:

thanks guys! cool photoshop! and yeah she needs new rubber seals for both the windshield and rear glass.

paint job was a backyard special done by previous owner. he's done s ome cool things to the car like installing an electric rear trunk switch and push button start.

Image
along with a new waterpump, radiator, starter and alternator the 2TC now has a Weber 32/36 carb with electric fuel pump, custom header complete with under diff exhaust, and the distributor was converted to electric.

Image
i was able to replace all the wood trimmed pieces with black ones. the dash has no cracks!
