Yes it does, dutch.
The worry some part was the fever. That didn't happen the last time.
Much better now.
When we left of on the caddy there was issues with the rocker trim lining up.l
Turned out it was the fender skirt the was the problem.
Some how the stock mounting point got out of wack and was pulling that front end of the skirt in too far.
A little of this and a little of that and it's better now.
I will finish that up tomorrow.
I also started to mess around with the interior. This is the best arm rest. Slipped a tube of material over it for a look see. This is not the material I am using for the interior.
Keep on keeping on ....
Torchie.

All the hard work is paying off, you should be proud of fixing what many would have just walked away from.

Nice work, love the Caddy!

My chev has some similar issues that were glassed and patched in the past. My trunk is still unfinished, covered in carpet. When I replaced the fuel sending unit, I just cut a little more to get to it.
