We have a few more pictures today of the restoration of 1966 Carryover GT350 Shelby # 6S033 as Jeremy at Maple Hill Restoration continues to get pieces ready for assembly.

The rear bumper brackets originally had zinc plated square nuts mounted in the black plated brackets. The originals were restored by having them plated and then painting the black.
