I am actually installing everything I know I can remove before paint that I can to minimize scratching to the paint. My Dad told me to put it all together before paint and take it all apart that way you will have a better idea on what to expect upon reinstallation. He has restored over 15 to 18 classics. It was a hobby of his. I already told you guys he worked in a foundry but as a second job he did pin striping (very rare art for cars). really well known in wisconsin. I can post pics if anyone is interested?
