    Indicative of the condition of our Blue '64 ("MetalBeast") when the
    restoration began, has anyone found stock or a usable equivalent for
    the stamped, "double-U" clips used to fasten the door and rear body-
    mount window guide "fuzzys" (Gordon p/n 11-36-41 or 11-38-24)? Of
    the three reamining, two can be used as samples, the remainder have
    rusted to powder. RJ&L Fasteners and Carlisle & Hershey Fasteners
    could not match the sample I sent.

    Other than some of this final trim, the seven year project is coming
    along "swimmingly". With some focused effort & luck over the winter,
    this ground-up "new car" will join her big sister (White '66 "Amphi")
    in the annual Seattle Boat Parade next May!

    For anyone considering this depth of a project, make sure your
    enthusiasm (and checkbook) is at a much higher level than you would
    ever expect! She's beautiful, though.
