Very cool & good luck where did you find your build sheets & are you gonna keep the trailer hitch  ;D
Build sheet was under the dash wrapped to the main wiring harness with black tape, which thankfully had no "stick" left in it. Came apart no problem but very fragile.
Yeah the towbar is not making a comeback. The second owner had the car 40 years and the KR was his driver which he used to tow his racer, a GT350.

Same place mine was ;)

Annnnd, back together she goes.
The bolts that attach the fenders to the engine bay, I have the AMK kit, are they correct as they come ie they don’t get painted?
Thanks

I think it's looking good

Later when you get to stripes and emblems, let us know if you need help. You need to nail those

Thanks Pete, you and others here have helped me with a lot of advice and more will be needed as the KR goes back together, greatly appreciated.
