    Cool Belle's restoration is almost done!!!

    Hey Guys - here are two photos of Belle's dash. The first one shows the shop's owner (on the left in blue) and his right arm technician putting in the dash...had some problems but got in in which #2 photos shows. They've taken lots of photos but I've asked them not to send them to me just yet as I want to see Belle in person for the first time and not in a photo. I am making a hard cover book with over 100 photos detailing every step in the restoration process.

    The shop owner said Belle should be ready in a week and a half to then take over to the upholstery shop where she'll be for about three weeks getting a new carpet (cut pile vs. loop pile) and a new color. She'll also be getting a newly designed trunk. Iam drawing sketches now to show the upholstery shop what I want. I've spent about fifty hours going over every detail of the restoration insuring that this time, I am getting my total dream car. Cant wait!
