Noted minor items include driver door upper rain drip flip rail does not return (common and easy return spring) and since original build the upper roof surface has been repaired from a minor garage door scuff (I am very picky, the only reason I mention it, is because in the right light and/or direction, inches away you see some shrinkage in the prep. Hardly noticeable & most would never see it but it is there, easy fix if desired, estimate $1,000 to correctly refinish to the quality of the rest of this wonderful car) Now as I always say, Not Perfect and Not New (none are) but this is an exceptionally well built and modernized Beauty of extreme quality!
