  Well, I can tell you that I have gotten "rear veiw mirror" paranoia.  But, I got it before I got old.

  Jim Cowles in Green Bay just did one for me.  Looks nice.

  Great picture of that car, but, it is hardly "back-in-the-day".  Notice all the new stuff in the background.
    I do like the 67 Shelby style hood.

  Well, since I own a 67 GT 350, I wondering how long and where at.  And who is FMC?

  At the carb, those squeezer type clamps.  Wasn't there an issue with  the squareness or the roundness and length of the squeeze tabs?  And where to find them.
  The olive drab color shouldn't be an issue as camo paints are popular right now at the home centers.

  I'm just wondering:  when are you going to buy a service manual?

  When does the 6 headlight front end go up on auction?

  Well stated Coralsnake.

  The issue as I see it is: 1) back when, we all thought somebody changed them to the washers missing type, blowing off the stories that "no, I bought it this way". Which may or may not be true.
 2) just because it is reported to the registrar as being so, we all know some folks are just BSing this.

  Just a tip for the future:  Make sure you install the gas cap as you can not install it with the fiberglass tail light panel being on.

  Jim's set has polished fins and they look stellar.

  And the Osbourne Engine Assembly manual might be helpful.

  Just a thought:  look into "cheesecloth" fabric.  There might be varying grades - hole width wise.  Paint or dye it black.

  Studs can be replaced by a competant muffler place.  If that is all you need, you might want to ask around your neighborhood.

  To keep original parts like Master cylinders, and wheel cylinders too, I send them out to be sleeved and rebuilt.  There are a few sources for this listed in Hemmings Motor News.
