Crazy nice color. I love it. Do you have the smugglers box actuator operating on a button in the car or on the alarm remote?

Tony,

I can only mirror the words of those posting before me. You're is a truly beautiful vehicle. I am envious of the workmanship and the color is nothing short of superb.

Do you have a parts list of what you used for the actuator in the smuggler's box?? I would like to do that to my 64.

Tony! A stunning example! I have been working on my 71 for 2 years and you have given me the inspiration to finish it the right way.

Smuggler box questions, to Sdcerreta & Wihaltom and anyone else interested in back wall and smugglers box, go to INTERIOR RESTORATIONS in forums and then go to page two and thread started by Al Pryor titled - 72 BEHIND THE SEAT - you will get discriptions and details of what I did to back wall and smugglers box. If I missed anything just ask.
Thanks Tony

i am a techno geek! I just sent back my first ever Iphone because of all the BS w/it, I had it 27 days. I am old school or just plain old. so I'll ask What is Virtual Car Show 2020? since there is no cars shows maybe this is better than no car show.

The gestures on some of the new phones can be difficult and cause problems when our hands suggest we wanted something to happen that we did not want to have happen.
Neuropathy (nerve damage) in the hands can cause the actions of the hands to not always be what the device expects.

The Virtual Car Show is just as you thought.
It is a way for us to work with our cars, clean them up, take them out for images and post them up.
We also have had "Conversations" in the background.
