Great looking car! I bought new door seals from http://www.autorestorationsupply.com a few years ago and am happy with what I received.

I re-painted a lot of the green over in black

Well hideous green paint is better than Rust. Just trying to make "Lemonade from those Kiwi coloured parts" sorry that's all I have for an answer! Some nice cars in that shot {picture}! But your car is nice and straight looking and there are only three that we on the board know about in all of Belgium and the only one with the 2 headlight front, so yours is pretty rare there and seems to fit right in IMHO!

I am constantly amazed at the popularity of North American iron in Europe.
I guess the dislike of wrong wheel drive econo boxes is universal. :lol:

Don't worry about your engine compartment. I have seen worse.

My other car is a Nova.
