Disassembley has officially began. After a long delay, my body guy has his shop up and running again. Today I started out taking lots of close detailed pictures of all the trim and the alignment of the trim and bumpers. Also got more pictures of door, hood, fender and trunk gaps. I still have the automatic car for more reference but still want good pictures of this car coming apart. Today I only pulled chrome parts that need re-chromed and that I don’t have NOS of. I do not need to have much chrome work other than the bumpers and the bumpers.

I did take my time and got the original trunk weatherstrip off without hurting it. I am undecided if I will reuse it because it has about a 1 inch spot that is cut.

I would like to be done on time for the 2020 MCACN show. I don’t really see a problem with that time frame but I will not rush if the time is going to be close, I will just miss the show. My quality goes down with a deadline and I will not allow that to happen.
