    Well fellow'61 fury owners my '61 got painted but the only thing that needs to be painted is the front fenders and the hood and the process of putting the car back together .It has been a good long journey on this car . Here are some photos I got to go in the garage after the garage was aired out of paint fumes and take some photos sorry about the quality of the photos

    It doesn't look like the garage was quite aired out.....

    Through the mist, it looks like a sweet '61 Fury though!

    NICE! To be at the stage where you finally get to open stash boxes of NOS and reconditioned parts for fitting.

    Do you need a template for a antenna hole or are you going radio delete?

    I don’t understand why you didn’t create the hole for the antenna(e) prior to paint. It reminds me of the city maintenance department going in and drilling holes in a city street right after they resurfaced it. ?
