The door gap could use a touch ,but i think it is mainly adjustment . The quarter is welded down the door jamb and across the bottom ,and just a single weld in the lower rear to keep it in place . I won't weld the top until the other quarter is in place and i can set the roof on and the rear window panel so i can make sure they will line up

Both quarters are on ,the vent corners are where they are supposed to be and the lower rear window panel is welded at both quarters but needs to be welded around the openings .both quarters still need to be welded at the wheel openings but that will be the last thing welded . Had enough for the day so the roof i will save for tomorrow .

Its off the stands ,fenders are just setting in place .
I made the hood and a few pieces of the interior fiberglass ,i still have the big panels beside the rear seat and the vent covers to make then i will fit it all ,the mounting brackets are not drilled yet so i told him i would fit it for him .

I made the last of the interior fiberglass and drilled the mounting holes ,had to use white gelcoat because i ran out of black. The hood and fenders are just sitting in place but this one is finished and should be gone by the middle of next week . Now to get back into my nephews 65 ,all his motor parts made it in except the main and rod bearings .
