I have all the dash and firewall apart now. it is just almost ready for the body shop. I talked to the body guy to see if he has room for it. He is not starting on it till near winter but I need room to work on the other stuff. He said he can take it as soon as I am ready. It will be his first car through the new shop.

Has anyone removed the upper drip rail stainless trim? I tried on a parts car and not sure if removing it is a good idea. I have taken it off many other years but this one is more difficult. I may leave them on and have to tape them off. That said, every original paint car i have found has some body color paint on them in some areas. I assume these were installed before paint at the factory? If I leave them on I am going to have to do a quality sand and polish on them before taking the car to him. I don’t want to do that after paint.
