Got a few more items done on the car this weekend. Installed Clark's reproduction 64' wheel and rocker molding trim. Installed the headlight buckets. Put some new tires put on the vintage cragar ss rims and put a rim on to see how the will look. Wheel studs are too short and some lug nuts are going to be needed. Uggg....2 steps forward and 1 step back.

Windshield and convertible top frame are next on the list.

Experimented around with removing the anodized coating this weekend. Used the EZ Off oven cleaning method. Sprayed it on heavy, let stand for 20 minutes. Lightly scrubbed it with medium soft brush. Rinsed and repeated the process. All the coating came off pretty easy.

Played around with some wet sand 1000 grit and light polishing with electric drill on the right side just to see.....
