    You opened with: "The car was in mint condition. Originally had the lime green, but had since been repainted Emerald green. The owner purchased the car 7 years prior from the original owner." after you got the top and paint off, that car was no-where near mint condition when you bought it, or am I missing something ?

    It was in great shape when i bought it. i didn't start on the bodywork for 8 years after i bought it. it was in a wreck prior to my purchase. that was when the cars color was changed. so probably over ten or more years the bodywork started to bubble.

    Ok, if everyone wants to see. First thing I did was to put in a new rollup door. Drove to Houston to pick it up.
