My organization of parts and boxes of parts might be a little less than stellar. Perhaps because I have all the books and manuals and have done most of the restoration work before on other cars, I rely a bit too much on memory. However, sometimes this organization fails me when I absolutely cannot find a part that I know I have.
I was getting another batch of chrome ready for Art Brass this week, and could not find the reflector chrome consoles- the small base that the rear reflectors mount too. After looking for over an hour, I threw in the towel and was communicating with friends about the missing parts. I wanted originals to re-chrome, not reproduction, and was disappointed about losing the parts.
Then, an offer came from Bill Waite, who is also restoring his Irish Green C coupe. He offered his original reflectors to me, for FREE! Reminds me of the saying the 356 Registry has/had: Come for the cars, stay for the friends.
Many thanks to Bill and a little tribute song below.
