Glad the feedback didn't deter you in the progress! Looking good! Man, with all that rust you showed back in, when was it , 2010?, I was wondering how to get through that.
Gotta say, I admire your perseverance.
If you need any parts, I just dismantled a 78 without the rust. I'll donate to your project if you pick-up the shipping.
Hope it comes along quickly, the roads are waiting for your Spider!
