And at one time, it was owned by a former TWOA member.

What caught my attention as the black paint on the last picture. see how

they carried the rocker panel black forward under the bumper.   you can see

in the picture where they install the engine that the restorers painted the

radiator and bumper side cavity black  as well as the inside frame rails,

all of which I thought were normally body colour.  Same treatment was given

to the body behind the rear bumper, but that may be factory correct.



Looking at the finished result  I like that the additional black paint helps

blend the bumper into the front of the car.  Especially the gap above the

bumper.  Front bumpers are nicely aligned too,  no drooping,  something that

other so called restorations often miss.



The fuel lines to the engine look a little funky,  but otherwise it looks

like a nice restoration based on a really good donor car...
