Indeed, no silly rules here. Feel free to share.
Roger, you need to name the companies so people don't get caught out. I have named the 2 I had problems with -SMS and Frank Nicodemus. Both took advantage of me being thousands of miles away. SMS products are great but the service I got was bad. FEN as Frank Nicodemus was then were terrible. I would use SMS again if I had to but wouldn't go near the other one! Terrill are great, Arizona Vintage Parts are great, Kanter are pretty good and the few parts I got from them were good. I've had really bad work done here in England, for instance I had to rebuild my engine after I'd had it "rebuilt" 🤣🤣🤣
I was not yet completely ready with sheet metal: the doors were waiting. The ones on the car were really bad. I contacted a known supplier in the USA; (he does advertise in the Self-Starter) he said that he had a good pair of doors. I asked again about rust and he said that he spent the whole Sunday with his son to inspect them and they are excellent. OK, please ship them!
Well, I don't know what for glasses he had at the time; maybe the ones to observe a sun's eclipse: they were as bad as mines (or they rusted in the plane between USA and Europe). So with 4 doors, I could do 2, but I had to weld some new sheetmetal; the lower outside panels were also made from scratch for both doors. Are you surprised if I don't buy anything anymore at this location?
What part of the country are you in?If your close by I can help you if you what to pull the parts.

My new industrial sewing machine has arrived. I need to tune it. Adjust the timing and stitch length mechanism. For some reason it is stuck around 2 stitches per inch.
