Drivers side door glass is now also done! I am moving my efforts to the interior of the car. I have cleaned up some messy stuff under the dash, and largely I think the big dirty stuff is done in there. Still have to replace fuel line in the tunnel, but with everything already out of the car this should go quickly.
So, what is next? It is time to install some new upholstery that arrived almost a year ago. Yes, I hope to start tomorrow on the rear quarter panels and then begin the process of installing the carpeting! No jokes about glue sniffing, I haven't started yet. All the interior pieces are here, and have waited patiently in the spare bedroom.
The process of getting all the chrome done continues. Updated shots from the shop are below. There are other pieces like the turn signal bezels but they have to re-do one of the door handles, so no shipment till next week. Excited because once those door handles are back and installed, I can put on the nice new door panels.
Gauges are all ready to slide in and be wired as well.

Paul, the parts look marvelous, looking forward to seeing the next steps documented. Not sure if you have seen the latest issue of Excellence which I received yesterday, but the greatest increase in value of all 356s has been in the C coupes, 25% in the last year. I certainly am pleased.
