New owner of a '55

We are new members and the proud new owners of a 55 Flying Cloud that is undergoing a full restoration back to orginal.

Advice would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Here are some pictures of the initial bodywork and the test fit if the shell back to the newly restored frame and subfloor. The hardwood floors are next and then finish bodywork after the shell is reattached. It is nerve racking seeing the shell "flying" around the shop.
