    I know 62 and also 64/65 has them. So far, nobody has found them on 63. These are not reproduced and have already sold some to 65 442 guys.

    The body guy matched the original over spray amount really well. I have seen some cars with more than this and some with less. This car you could hardly tell just how much was there but there were some places that still give clues. The body guy thought I was crazy to want the over spray. He likes hard lines.

    I finished the front suspension and installed it in the car for temporary so that I can roll the car around. I will have the rear end done in the next week or two and install it permanent. I need to roll this to the other side of the garage so that I can work on it better. I have pulled off of this car longer than I planned and starting to get back to it. Added a before and after.

    I finished my last two inspection stamps today. They are not even close to as nice as the originals but they will have to do because I am not very good at it. I could make them better but I would have to get a different style stamper and use yellow ink instead of paint. These are good enough for me. I guess I have seen some really poor stampings from the factory also but the ones on this car were really good.
