Progress & Bacon
My van was transported to a shop this week. Over the next few weeks it will have all the body work done. If I have any single regret about the project thus far, it is that I replied on Iain Mckenzie for panels -- ones that were really costly to get made and that, in the end, didn't have the standard of workmanship one would expect. One of the two reskinned rear doors I received from him has a piece of wood jammed in the cavity to keep the outer contour. My radiator support was built for a RHD instead of a LHD vehicle. The rear cross member is 10 degrees out of square. How do you screw that up? The rear gutter piece was seemingly cut too short and a piece hastily added to make the dimensions correct. It's unusable. I think I'll buy him a ticket to visit me. That way I can push him down a flight of stairs when he gets here.
