Looking good!!! I do believe the decklid needs to be lettered like the doors are. I was thumbing through a 1980 (I think it was Sept, Oct, or Nov) issue of HotVW's this very morning that showed it that way!

Russell, you stole my job! It looks like I'm going to have to teach you how to break them. That one was still running when you got out. If you don't do it properly Ray will run out of work, get bored and leave. Grin

Zach,that is always an issue when resurecting an old race car,there are so many different incarnations that they go through,which era do you chose? everyone has a different favourite era,for instance BRMS or DDS wheels? there were so many changes as it was devoloped,one picture was chosen and stuck too,thats the way it has ended up Smiley
