Congrats, it is a very satisfying feeling when the plan comes together.  I 
just wrapped up Bill's restoration and it is very pleasing to have 
everything working.  Total time was about 15 months and this included taking 
it down to stripped chassis and ~4 months at the painters.  Redesigned the 
cooling, electrical, and AC. Of course rebuilt everything.  We are simply 
waiting on the wheels at this point.

On his car, I mover the condenser upfront.  I tested it last weekend on a 
drive from Orville Burg's house on the otherside of town.  In midday Texas 
heat and humidity, the system fueled with R-134 blew air at a steady 38 
degrees.  Nirvana!!
