That's all pretty common stuff. Don't get too discouraged. The hood and fenders sure match up great. Looks very straight in the pix....

If you get frustrated, check out the "Still chipping away..." thread. That should help.

I feel your pain. I'm chipping away at my 72 project too. I keep telling myself "Take it one part at a time,"

Looks like it's coming along pretty well though. Good job.
