Hoping for the best, Jimmy.
For better or worse, this is what these cars are all about. They offer the possibility of something unobtainable in mass production but with the uncertainty of one-off hand fabrication.
We've all been there to some degree - the weekend upgrade that turns into weeks of down time because of some detail we could never anticipate.
Keep the faith. The rebuild almost always comes together better than the first attempt. All it takes is patience.
And, well, occasionally some money is involved, too.
