Thank you all for the comments ....

Byron thank you, I wish I lived closer to you, so I can admire your cars ...

Regarding other comments, I do not want to cause any problem in the forum, if they think the best option is to change the topic's fine with me ...

Thanks to all!;)

Nonsense Miguel, I like to see what you're doing with the restoration, it's as legitimate a build as anything else you see in my opinion, keep the pictures and progress coming please!

+2 also very good for the history of the 510 to be preserved as intended

Now don't get me wrong here. I wasn't trying to disrespect your car in any way at all. It's a beautiful car. I just didn't think of you "restoring" the car for some reason, it does deserve to be in this section, there's no doubt about that. Keep up the good work. I know not everyone on here that's building 510's have the skills and equiptment that some of the other guys do, but I think there are a couple of cars in the project section that deserve to be in here. And Okayfine, where on earth have you been?

Friends this week walked back from the door trims ...

I got a new rubber seals to make, because I do not like the rubber source here are the photos of the work ...

The new rubber bought:
Image
As this rubber is not directly applicable, I had to make some adjustments to get to the place ...
A cut side ...
Image
Then went to get the plate that is holding the rubber and put new staples
Image
Image
Here is a photo of the rubber in place, all the plates and springs are galvanized ...
